diy thursday: sleep mask

I’m prepping to open my etsy store and one of the items I’d like to add to the shop is the hello kitty sleep mask. This is going to be a quick dirty tutorial to make a sleep mask

1. draw out the shape of your sleep mask I traced a sleep mask I already had to get the shape

because of my pattern making background I worked on a fold for easy symmetry, add seam allowance I used 1/4

2. cut two for the front and back I used a satin cotton for the top(white) and a silk charmeuse(pink) for the bottom

3. I’f your going to add anything like buttons to the top now is the time to do so unless your like me I didn’t plan this out so I added everything to the top with hot glue

4. Sew the mask right sides together and leave a opening to turn right sides out, once you turn it right sides out you can hand stitch it closed

note: I added elastic afterwards it will look a lot nicer if you do it during the above step

5. finished product

with love
