Sleep masks!

Well, I'm back, had a great time at Virginia Beach. but after basically a week of no crafting, I was definitely in the mood for a quick project!

I've decided I'm going to attempt to do more handcrafted gifts this year, and already have a couple things in mind for a few friends. So this afternoon I made two sleep masks. The top one was the test version I made for myself (which I'm hoping it works out for me, because I'm one of those people that just can't sleep when there's light in the room, so I always have trouble when staying with friends), and the bottom one is a birthday gift for a friend. Or at least part of it, because I feel like this might not be enough. I'm going to visit her this weekend, and even though her birthday's not for another month, I don't know if I'll see her again before that, so I need to think fast! But she mentioned she wanted a sleep mask because she has lace curtains in her new room (she just moved) and the light comes in a lot. Yes, hers is bigger-- I took less of a seam allowance on it, after seeing how mine turned out. The fabric is leftover pieces from other projects, so this was a good scrap project!

Hmm, need to think... I could make her a little relaxation kit of some kind. Maybe some kind of lavender satchel, or some body care stuff or something... will have to think about that. I know her room is doubling as her studio, since she's an artist. I wonder how lavender mixes with turpentine...


  1. I love the cute sleep masks! So fun and creative!!

    Thanks for all of your comments on my site, Becky! Sorry I'm not so good at commenting back on yours, but I love reading your creative post!!! Hope all is well. :)

  2. The sleep masks are cool. I totally should make one of those, 'cause I can't sleep with any light, either!
    Add a nice cup and some chamomile tea to the 'relaxation' package!
