Sleep Mask for Mom
mask for Mom! What a wonderful and unique gift, and it is
By giving this to your
mom you will encourage her to take a well deserved afternoon nap.
It blocks out ALL the light and really allows her to drift
away in a peaceful slumber. They are also great to slip on in
the early morning, when you aren't ready to get up yet but the sunlit
room is bothering you. I really have found these make naps so
peaceful! Your mom will love it!
These usually sell in stores
for around $10, but you can make your own for less than 50 cents.
The sleep mask is made out of felt. They now sell a
lot of different, fun prints on felt sheets. I found this
animal print and couldn't resist.
This is a great craft for
older children that may have just learned to sew. It is an
extremely easy and fast craft to put together, and they will get to
practice their sewing skills.
pieces of felt
- An elastic band (found in sewing
or a satin ribbon for tying the mask around your head
small bit of polyfill (found in sewing
- Sewing needle and thread
- a few straight pins
1. Begin with printing out the template by clicking here.
A new window will open and Adobe Reader will open so you can
print the mask pattern. Once you have it, cut it out.
Pin this pattern on the two pieces of felt stacked together.
Use some pins to secure the pattern. Then carefully
cut the two felt pieces out around the paper pattern.
2. Unpin the paper from the two felt pieces. Lie
the two sleep mask felt pieces on top of one another (right sides
facing out) and pin them together again.
Cut the elastic band to a length that fits snugly around an
adult's head, or use black satin ribbon, that be tied around the head.
Place the end of the band in between the two felt pieces near
each end of the mask. Sew this together in place with the
needle and thread.
Now begin sewing, a basic stitch, all around the edges of the
mask. It is OK if the stitches show. If you use a
contrasting color thread this will actually look nice. A
sewing machine can also be used. Stop sewing by the bottom
of the mask between the eyes, and leave an opening.
