    Butterfly Eye Rice Bags

    Thought I would share my latest project...Actually I've been making several different shapes to soothe various joints of the aging body. LOL Also took Holy Socks for some of them and used acrylic washes to make my own fabric designs. Had to make several before settling on this size...some have the round edge and others are squared off. Feel free to copy, change, use or pass along as you wish. So long as you don't copyright it and charge for the pattern it's totally ok with me...I prefer my eye bag frozen but my husband uses his to keep the oil ducts under his eyelids flowing. He has had very serious problems with them being clogged creating cysts that had to be lanced and drained. Instructions are inside the pattern. Hope you find it useful.

    thanks so much for sharing this pattern. i suffer from blepharitis, too. i usually use a damp washcloth heated in the microwave, but it cools off too fast. this is a great solution

    Thank you for sharing this!

    Thanks for sharing. I think I will make one and send it to my sis in Texas. She uses ice packs in the morning to get rid of the bags caused by allergies.

    I've made these, a little difference in the shape. Spasms of my eyelids prompted my making them. Cold is my preference, it numbs the nerve endings! Works like a charm! Keep one in the refrigerator!

    Thanks for sharing. Will definitely make these for migraine relief.

    A doctor told me to put Johnson Baby Shampoo on a warm, wet washcloth and gently scrub the base of my eyelashes to help keep them open. Your husband might ask his doctor about this.

    My daughter-in- law just said she wanted one for the earaches she gets from gritting her teeth...Wish I had known or thought about something like this when my kids were little and had earaches. I think maybe cutting the pattern in half might just work. If it doesn't you can pretty well draw or shape from socks...

    Happy it is of benefit...
