One of our daughters has to wear a patch over her eye a couple of hours a day. She hated wearing a sticky eye patch, so we came up with this cloth eyepatch made out of polar fleece.
She loves wearing this patch. It is much softer, and she feels like a pirate.
We used black polar fleece to make the patch so that it would not be see through. We cut out the polar fleece in the shape of the eye patches that we had been using. We covered up the patch portion of the black polar fleece with pretty cloth.
My mom was going to embroider the patch, but there were too many needle holes, and it turned out that she could have seen through the patch.
After the patch portion was sewn, we added a black strip of polar fleece with velcro at the end to attach the patch. The strip of cloth is attached slightly higher on the side where the eye is not covered up.
This is also going to save us quite a bit of money. She will need to wear patches for several years, and they are expensive to buy! Plus, she feels very special with her own pink patch.
This could also make a cute costume!
