Hello SF Etsy team! And we are back to start 2014 off right. This week’s Tuestorial features a sleep mask to help you get that much needed sleep to feel energized and ready to take on your New Year goals!
|Beauty sleep materials|
- Print sleep mask template here
- Cotton fabric of your choice
- Felt or soft fabric to use for the inside of your mask
- Elastic cord
- Sticky back felt
- Sewing pins
- Sewing machine (can hand sew as well)
|I only have eyes…for this awesome fabric!|
Decide which template you want to go with (ears or no ears? No wrong decision!) and trace it on the wrong side of your cotton fabric and felt. Cut with your fancy scissors.
|Warning: pins can be dangerous in your lap|
Put the cut cotton fabric and felt good-side together. Take your elastic cord and measure length (use your head!). Pin both elastic ends in between the two fabric pieces.
|Sew it…Bernina style!|
Now your mask is ready to be sewn! Sew a quarter inch margin around the mask and be sure to leave an opening to turn it inside out.
|Make it pretty!|
Turn inside out and press edges with an iron. Now use the lash pattern included on the template to outline the detail on the back of the sticky back felt. Cut and apply. It helps to wear your mask to figure out where your lashes are or ask a kind stranger for help.
Time for a nap! Wear and enjoy. You can also add extra padding around the eye area if you are sensitive to light or lavender for a luxurious sleep experience.
