DIY Tuesday – sleeping mask

DSC_0133 This is what we will make today, a night mask! 🙂
Materials you will need:

DSC_0116 Just some BASIC sewing material: Needle, dread, elastic and scissors.
DSC_0114 And some old pieces of fabric or just normal fabric, whatever you have.
DSC_0119 Step 1: Measuring. As you can see on my ‘lovely’ drawing you have te measure just about 1,5 cm away from your eyes. I added 2 cm just to be sure it is wide enough.
Step 2: Measuring again. Now you want to measure from the top of your head (where your hair line starts)  until 3/4 of your nose. I again added 2 cm just to be sure.
Step 3: Make a patern, just like I did but use your own measurements. You can make the patern just as you like and you pin it down on to your fabric.
Step 4: You cut out the patern twice and take some wool/thread you prefer.
Step 5: You put the wrong sides together and begin to sew. On the pictures you see I only go trhough the 1st layer, that is what you have to do and make sure the knot is on the inside when you go on into the second layer! On the picture my knot is on the outside but I turned it around afterwards.

Step 7: You take your elastic and stretch it out and pull it from 1 side of your face around the back to the other side. Don’t forget to stretch it when you do that! You cut out out the length you measured. Last thing to do is sew it onto your night mask, I did it between my 2 layers but you can do it your way and sew it at the back.

Now you’re all ready with your night mask and goodnight!
