so I've been coveting the sleepmask that Audrey Hepburn wears in Breakfast at Tiffany's for ages and my interest was sparked again when my mom put some perfect supplies for it in my easter basket.  anyway, I'm sure this'll make more sense with pictures...
 



 
this thing took a bit of planning, just to get it looking well put-together.  blue satin and a soft pink fabric for the part laying against your eyes.  sandwiched between the two is a thicker fabric, plus a few other well-secured pieces to make the 'eyelids'.  braided gold thread for the eyebrows.  then the lashes, the elastic band and some trim around the edge and voila!


 

 
the back.  (pink lining.  you can see the elastic band here, too.)
 



 
details.  (and, yes, what you heard about working with metallic thread is TRUE!)
 




action shot.  as I was working on the eyelids, I was wondering if it was even worth it, but you can really notice them and I love how they ended up looking.  even the crease halfway down, like on a real eye.  I feel so cartoon-glamorous in this mask.

comments & critique appreciated as always. thanks.

I second the need for tassled ear plugs to go along with this!

This had been a project I'd wanted to do for ages too, and I think you did an immaculate job! It looks PERFECT!  Shocked

love it!!!  I tried one of those sleep masks once but it kept squishing my eyelashes and I couldn't stand it.
