Herbal Sleep Pillows

I have all the ingredients.  I just now need to organise myself into the correct mindset for measuring, mixing and sewing.  Jewellery making will have to go on the back burner whilst I get to grips with making the herbal sleep pillows.

In my teenage angst years I went to bed with a herbal sleep pillow each night.  The familiar and comforting scent of the herbs enabled me to drift off into a restful sleep.

It has been many years since I used a sewing machine and I still have to unbox the small one bought from John Lewis a couple of years back.  I really need to tackle my sewing machine phobia which stems from getting the ends of my long hair caught around the sewing machine wheel during a sewing lesson at school many moons ago.

So, I have an assortment of sleep inducing herbs, muslin to contain them, and a pretty floral cotton poplin to make removable outer covers.  Now I just need to make them.

Get sewing, Simone - you'll have lots of people wanting those cushions! Poor you getting your hair caught in a sewing machine - I singed my fringe on a bunsen burner at school:)

Hi Simone - I hope you get that sewing machine out soon because I for one can't wait to see the finished herb pillows. Just remember to tie your hair back! x

That does like a nasty accident you had at school.
But I'm looking forward to seeing your new soothing creations.
