I have a solid addiction to Pinterest. Combine this with my love of massage therapy and we have a massage therapy craft today.
I enjoy time with scissors, fabric, string, and my sewing machine. One of the gifts to my clients early in my career were homemade flax eye pillows. I understand not everyone has this same feeling about sewing. Today, no sewing machines required.
I have used these facerest covers for a few years. The idea came to me when I did not have time to buy disposible facerest covers for an event I was going to work at with my massage table. I had a ton of fleece from making those fleece knotted blankets. I got an idea to make “disposable” facerest covers out of this fabric. They work great during regular massage session, are very easy to make, and are quite economical (easily less than one dollar to make). I use them often as an extra bit of softness over the thinner cotton fitted covers.
What you need:
- Fleece, or other fabric (my favorite fabric is an ultra cuddle fleece)
- Washable Marker
- Something with a 90 degree angle that you do not mind getting marker on (I have a metal square)
- A helpful 4 year old (optional)
Use the facerest you currently use to check dimensions. For mine I cut a square to about 16in. x 16in, or a little larger.
Still confused? I understand. Sorry, this is my first craft tutorial. Below is a pattern I made.
P. S. I will have a sewing pattern tutorial up sometime soon.
P.S.S. You can 45 the upper two corners to make them look more like disposable facerest covers.
