Cold weather and short days make for a great time to snuggle on the couch with a book and settle in for a cozy afternoon of reading. A handmade fabric heart bookmark is simple and great to pair with a book as a gift for someone who loves to read! You can also fill the little hearts with dried lavender and enjoy a truly relaxing read surrounded with the scent of lavender.

DIY Gift Idea: Scented Heating Eye Mask

Michael Miller Funfair fabric

When traveling or simply at the end of a crazy workday, a soothing eye mask is just the thing to relax your worries away.

 

Similar to scented heating pad, filled it with rice, herbs and relaxing essential oils, this DIY eye mask can be warmed by microwave oven. The eye mask uses very little fabric, so if you have scrap fabric around it would be perfect for this project. You probably have all or most of the items already on hand. This eye mask took me about 30 minutes to complete.

Do you sometimes get frustrated when the earbud gets tangled in the bag? This earbud pouch is definitely simple to make with fabric scraps, it is great as an earbud holder, but also think about cash, extra keys, lip balm or any other small things to keep track of!
