  1. 1

    Squeeze a thin line of nontoxic adhesive along the outer edge of one cheesecloth circle. Make sure each circle is five inches in diameter so they can support the filling and gluing process.

  2. 2

    Pull apart two cotton balls and mound them together into one wide fluff of cotton. Place the fluff of cotton on the glued-edged circle, making sure not to touch the glue with it.

  3. 3

    Press another circle firmly over the circle with cotton balls. Press the edges firmly to adhere them together.

  4. 4

    Repeat Steps 1 through 3 to make the other eye pad.
