so I fixed my old eye mask because the elastic broke (probably from over use) so I just sewed the elastic back on...
the trouble I have is I find I sleep better when I have the mask on but sometimes hubby wants it because I keep him up watching something and hes really to sleep... so I thought how hard could it be to make another one?
so I traced the eye mask onto a piece of paper
then I cut out a piece of pink felt
and a piece of pink fabric
and a piece of black fabric
I cut them all a little bigger than my original template to give me some space
I assembled them so it went from top to bottom black fabric pink fabric pink felt
I then carefully placed the elastic inbetween and stitched all the way around the edges making sure to back stitch a few times were the elastic was to make sure it was held in place securely.. I did leave a a small opening in the top to turn it in the right way then I top stitched around it to keep it all in place and give it extra security with holding the elastic in place....
and I thought it looked a little plain
and I admit its not perfect but not bad for a first attempt
I found a cute picture of eyes and ironed them on
I cant wait to use it tonight
