This listing is for handmade children’s felt eye patches available in different price ranges and materials, you can select 2 plain ones with no design OR 2 custom designed patches with your choice of simple object stitched onto the front of the patch OR one of each (one plain and one custom designed patch). Each of these options also let you choose a synthetic felt or 100% wool felt for the outside portion. Any questions please ask!

Choose the colors you want (may be limited to what I have in stock) or a fun design-from a Jolly Roger, to a simple animal, a sports theme or another custom design of your choice. Be sure to let me know the design and color(s) requested for the patch from the pictures shown here or your own idea as well as which eye will be patched.

The felt patches I make are fun for kids and a nice alternative to the sticker patches IF your eye doctor agrees that an over the glasses patch is right for your particular treatment. PLEASE consult your eye doctor before using this style of patch, it is NOT recommended for some treatments/patients as it does not fully occlude the eye.

My patches are affordable, durable, and extremely simple in design- they have no snaps, straps, or Velcro that could damage the frames or lenses. Two pieces of felt are sewn together along the edges with a space on both ends for the frame to slip through. The patch covers one side of the frame and is held in place by the frame and face. This loose design makes them super easy to put on and take off the glasses without damage (even by the child). The patch may shift slightly while worn because of this simple design but it is easy to push back into place. My daughter has used my patches for a couple years now and her experience patching with my design has been that it works great!

My patches are probably best for children who have only MILD patching requirements -they are NOT light tight nor to they offer full occlusion and they do not cause the covered eye to close, it is possible to peek over the glasses and "cheat" with these patches so again, PLEASE consult your child’s doctor before you decide to use a non adhesive patch.

I began making eye patches for my own daughter when our doctor told us we needed to patch several hours each day to strengthen my daughter’s “weak” eye. I found that the bright colors and fun designs made her much more willing to patch. She even likes wearing her patch out in public and we always get a lot of compliments on it which I believe helps her feel more confident with her eye condition and patching in general. She went through a period where she was required to use an adhesive patch and still opted to wear her felt patch that I had made just for her on her glasses to cover up the adhesive patch (she didn't care for the preprinted designs they came with) and to feel more comfortable since other kids out in public and at school often find the adhesive patches impossible not to stare at (not in a mean way but they often are concerned that something is wrong with the eye or that it is missing and with the over the glasses patch they think it is more of a "dress up" thing).

These are MADE TO ORDER felt eye patches and as such will vary from the images seen here and no two are exactly the same. All are cut and sewn by hand from my original designs so each piece will be one of a kind (OOAK). Please include the color(s) and designs you are interested in when you place your order as well as telling me which eye will be patched in the notes or convo me before you place your order to discuss the details. Remember, this listing is for two patches, both with a design. Also, please note that I typically use black fleece for the inside piece of the patch (even if you select the 100% wool add on option-if you would like the entire patch in wool please request this when placing order-no additional charge) to reduce the amount of light that filters through and because fleece it is very soft. If you would like a different material for this please convo me.

Approx. 5 inches long and 2 inches across the widest portion, the opening at the nose is about 1-1.5 inches and the opening for the arm is about .5 inches. Please feel free to include the measurements of the glasses in your order especially if your child's glasses are very small or very large. Made with quality felt sheets (not craft store felt sheets) and embroidery thread. I feel this makes my items more detailed, unique, durable, and child friendly. Patches in 100% wool felt now available for additional fee (outside portion only unless otherwise requested).

My felt patches are carefully hand sewn but pieces can be detached if handled too roughly and supervision is always suggested for very young children. Also, felt does "wear" and these patches will not last forever. They will need to be replaced every so often depending on how much handling they get. I would say the patches I make that we have used in our family begin to fray after about 3-6 months. We are pretty rough on them though and I often toss the patch in my purse or pocket so if you treated them more gently they could last up to a year. 100% wool patches DO last longer and are more durable.
