We all know that getting a good night's sleep is the key to one's ability to function during the day. Establish a serene environment with this easy-to-make DIY satin sleep mask! It is silky smooth and the perfect enhancement to your bedtime ritual.
- 1/4 yard satin
- Scrap of interfacing
- Scrap of batting
- 1 package of bias tape
- 14" piece of elastic
- Sleep mask pattern (download HERE) *make sure settings are set to no scale*
Step 1: Adhere the interfacing to the wrong side of the satin. Make sure to use a medium setting so you don't overheat the satin.
Step 2: Using your pattern, cut out two shapes from the interfaced satin and one shape from the batting.
Step 3: Sandwich the two satin pieces, right sides facing out, with the batting in between.
Step 4: Sew a 1/4" seam all the way around the mask. Go slow and take care that your fabric does not bunch up.
Step 5: Trim the seam allowance very close to the stitch line.
Step 6: Sew the bias tape around the entire raw edge of the mask.
Step 7: Flip the mask to the back side and pin the elastic to the sides and sew in place.
Ahhhh, now you can block out reality. Well, most of it anyway.
