Since I was a little girl, I adored Holly Golightly's sleep mask in Breakfast at Tiffany's. I wanted to try to make one but slippery satin scares me, so I nabbed a pre-bought sleep mask we had used for a prop in a photo shoot at work:

(Pretty plain, huh?)

I spent a half day, mixed with plenty of felt and tiny little stitches, and came up with this funky, fun and semi-glamorous sleep mask.



Plus, it looks really funny on people while they're wearing it (gratuitous, yet necessary, action shot below).

Now my eyes are always open, even when I'm asleep!

People who take time to be alone usually have depth, originality, and quiet reserve.

I love it!  So cute.

I, too, have always wanted one like Holly's.  And a sofa made out of half a bathtub.  And a dog named dog to comfort me when I get the mean reds.  (I don't like cats.)  But clearly, I kind of love the movie.  :-)

Great work!

Haha, that's hilarious.  I love how cartoony the eyes look, though I guess you can't very well detail realism in a FELT medium. 

So adorable, and that's a great idea for a last-minute gift or addition to another gift.  Thanks for sharing!  Smiley
