soothing eye mask

If you are like me, who is using a lot of eye power, really needs this soothing eye mask. DESPERATELY, my eyes are always tired and strained from focusing the details while making crafts and hours of starring in front of my computer. I want it I make it, I make it I share it! This is the mission and passion I have shared in Craft Passion since 10 years ago, the spirit is still going strong!

Soothing Eye Mask – Free Sewing Pattern

Before sewing this soothing eye mask, I have been using the store-bought cooling gel eye mask to temporary relieve my tired eyes, but I find the cooling gel eye mask cannot completely cover the whole eye, it is just touching the bulging eyelid where the eyeball is located. I don’t feel this “spot cooling” comfortable at all and need to move my eyeball around trying to make the whole eye cooled down evenly, hence it is not as relaxed as I anticipate. Realizing that I need an alternative soothing eye mask that provides some degree of compression and with even-cooling around the eyes, undoubtedly with my passion in craft, DIY is the only way to make my little dream comes true.

It is a fabulous sewing project to sew as a gift for your friends, as goodwill while clearing out your fabric stash. Sew up a dozen of them only required a little of your time.

Make the world a better place to live by sharing the loves with your handmade.

Happy sewing!

eye mask templateDownload and print out the Eye Mask template. Don’t scale the printing, it is in letter size paper (8.5″ x 11″) so you should have no problem printing it in full scale. There is a 2″ scale marking for you to check if you are printing it in the right size.
Cut out the template.

 

em tutotial 1Gather all the necessary materials as listed above. The fabric/fabrics must be pre-washed and ironed before sewing since you can’t wash the completed soothing eye-mask anymore.
I used satin as the bottom piece of the eye mask that contact with the eyes to enhance the soothing result.

 

em tutotial 21. Pin both fabrics together with right-side facing each other.
2. Trace the template with a marker.
3. Sew around the traced line but leave an opening of about 1 1/2″ at the top of the eye-mask (for turning right-side out and filling purposes).
4. Cut the piece out with a seam allowance of 1/4″, leave a wider seam allowance at the opening area so that it is easier for you to sew to close it after the turning and filling.
5. Clip the seam allowance at the curvey area for a smoother curve after turning right-side out.

 

em tutotial 31. Turn the eye mask right-side out, smooth out the shape, press with an iron if necessary.
2. Insert the funnel or paper cone at the opening, fill the soothing eye mask with your preferred beans, I used organic green mung beans. Dried herbs may be added for an extra soothing effect.

 

em tutotial 4Sew to close the opening. Pat the eye mask to distribute the beans equally, sew a line at the center.

~Complete~

 

em tutotial 4aPlace the soothing eye-mask into a zipper bag (for the hygienic purpose) then store it in your freezer compartment for overnight to chill it.

 

relax eyemask thumbRevive your tired eyes by placing the soothing eye-mask on your eyes, rest with the head in a slightly upright tilted position.
Rest and relax in this position until the coolness of the eye mask receded.
Place the soothing eye mask back into the freezer for the next use.
If you are wearing make-up, place a piece of thin tissue between the eyes and the eye mask to prevent the eye mask from cosmetic stains.

 

Sleeping Eye Mask

em tutotial 5The batting or felt piece helps to block out the brightness from outside when you are wearing the eye mask.
Again, I used satin as the bottom piece of the eye-mask that contact with the eyes to enhance the soothing result.

 

em tutotial 6Trace the template with a marker at the back of the cotton fabric. Mark the elastic marking on the fabric too.
Sew the elastic band on the seam allowance at the marking position (refer to picture)

 

em tutotial 7Pin the fabrics together with right-side facing each other. Tug in the elastic band so that it is away from the seam line.
Sew around the traced line but leave an opening of about 1 1/2″ at the top of the eye mask (for turning right-side out ).
Cut the eye mask piece out with a seam allowance of 1/4″, leave a wider seam allowance at the opening area so that it is easier for you to sew to close it after the turning.
Clip the seam allowance at the curvey area for a smoother curve after turning right-side out.

 

em tutotial 8Turn the eye mask right-side out, smooth out the shape, press with an iron if necessary.
Sew to close the opening.

~Complete~
