Mother's Day Sleep Mask 10


Materials:

  • Fat quarters
    • Fabric (for the outside of the mask)
    • Black satin (for the inside of the mask)
    • Fusible facing
  • ½” wide piece of elastic
  • Embellishments
  • Safety pin
  • Pattern


Instructions:

  1. Use a tape measure to measure around your head, going over your eyes and behind the back of your head. Take this measurement take off 8”. Cut your elastic to be that length.
     
  2. Cut a strip of fabric from the main fabric measuring about 2”x18” This is the casing for your elastic.
     
  3. Cut out the sleep mask pattern at the end of this tutorial & add on ½“ seam allowance.
     
  4. Use the pattern to cut one mask shape out of the main fabric, the satin & the facing.

  8. Sew the elastic to the seam allowance using a large zig zag stitch and stretching the elastic as you go. Attaching the elastic to the casing will ensure that it doesn’t twist inside and stays flat.

  9. Pin the safety pin to the elastic, then push it into the fabric tube, so that you are turning the fabric casing the right way round and encasing the elastic in the casing.

  15. Then decorate as you like! Here are some sleep masks I made for my mom, I printed a message on iron on paper and ironed it to the mask for one, and for the other I stuck stick on jewels on it. I think sequins or beads would be gorgeous too!! Happy Mother’s day!
