It's a friend's birthday this week and like most people I know she is a busy, self-sacrificing, wonderful woman.
So I made her a rice heat pack with a zip off cover even! - apologies to those who find the use of food offensive in crafting - and an eye mask.
She is a dog and animal lover so I thought this fun fabric was perfect.
The eye mask came from an idea and tutorial on Amelie and Atticus (a blog I read) - note my awesome cutting skills that means the dog has no head - yeah I marvel at my talent sometimes too!
I have infused both with some lavender and lemon essential oils - restful and reviving - hopefully they don't cause confusion!

I've also made some yummy and easy muesli this week - let me know if you'd be keen for a recipe post.
Both the rice heat pack and the eye mask are very easy first-timer projects if you are someone who is keen to start sewing.
