  1. Print & Cut Sleep Mask pdf pattern.

  2. Pin sleep mask template to your fabric, lining, and batting and cut out all three layers.

  3. Measure elastic that fits comfortably around your head. Add 1 inch to that measurement to allocate for the seam allowance. Cut that new measurement piece.

  4. Determine where you'd liked your elastic band to sit on your mask and mark on one side with a line. Match this line to the other side of the mask.

  5. On the right side of.your main mask, piece baste/glue/pin your elastic at the points you marked.

  6. (Optional) On the same main piece, also on the right side glue/ pin trim all around mask.

  7. Place lining fabric on top of the main with right sides together and place batting on top of the lining piece. You'll have main, lining and batting. Pin or clip around.

  8. Using a 1/2 inch allowance, sew all around mask leaving a 1 - 2 inch opening. (We suggest leaving the opening at the top where the seam is a straight)

  9. Remove excess seam allowance, and turn mask inside out. Use your point turner to help bring out edges.

  10. Give the mask a good press here.

  11. To enclose the opening top stitch all around the mask, and your done!

  12. Extras: You can make this mask even more fun for kids by using fabric markers or felt to create fun and funky eye shapes.
