Arts and Crafts: Sleeping Mask
Item request has been placed! ×
Item request cannot be made. ×
Sleeping masks are perfect to block out light and to create a feeling of Zen and relaxation while you sleep. You can add your personal touch to this mask by choosing a fun fabric or even by ironing on some vinyl.
- A sewing machine (You can also do this by hand)
- Fabric of choice
- Any padding to go in your mask, such as Felt
- Pins to hold your fabric in place
- A mask pattern of your choice. There are many free ones on Google and Pinterest.
- Start by securing your pattern on your fabric and padding material with pins. Then cut around the pattern.
- Place one piece of fabric with the right side up on top of your padding material.
- Pin your elastic across the fabric. And sew it close to the edge. This part does not have to be perfect.
- Next, place your other piece of fabric on top with the wrong side up. Pin it in place and sew around the mask leaving a gap at the top of the mask that is about 3 inches long. Try to sew around with a ¼’’ seam. It's okay if it is not perfect.
- Carefully turn your mask inside out using the gap you left. Looking good, we’re almost finished!
- Finally, sew around the mask to close the gap you left using a ¼’’ seam. This part is optional; you can also close this gap by using fabric glue! And Voila! Now you can make yourself a cup of tea and have a nice nap!
