Pirate Eye Patch Tutorial for Toddlers
Rachel loves Jake and the Neverland Pirates. Here is how we made an easy pirate eye patch for Rachel. You can adjust the length of the ribbon to meet the your child's head circumference.
Pink or blue felt (depending on if making for a boy or girl)
Coordinating ribbon 1/4 inch wide
I traced around a lens on a pair of Rachel's sunglasses to make the eye patch template. You could trace around a pair of child or adult size glasses depending on how big you would like your eye patch to be.
Using your eye patch template cut out 2 pieces out of black felt. Cut 2 pieces of ribbon 18 inches long each.
With the 2 pieces of felt together- place a ribbon on each side of the top of the eye patch. The ribbon should be sandwiched in between the two pieces of felt. Pin ribbons in place.
Sew around the perimeter of the eye patch stitching the ribbon into place.
Cut two match stick like piece of colored felt. These will be used to make the X shape on the eye patch.
Place one of the match stick pieces of felt across the top of the eye patch.
Stitch into place.
Place other match stick piece of felt on top of the eye patch making an X shape.
Stitch match stick into place. Trim match stick pieces to make them flush with the eye patch.
Cut a small heart shape or skull shape out of the same color felt you used to make the X.
Place heart shape or skull on top of the X on the eye patch.
Stitch heart or skull into place.
