41  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Paisley-ish ruffled sleep mask on: October 18, 2009 04:43:46 PM
I've been meaning to make one of these for a while.  I had an old one, but it was made from synthetic fabric, so it didn't breathe and I got rashes on my face - not ideal!  Added to that, the elastic was all stretched and useless.  I had planned to use a pattern in a post on this board but when I went to make it the other day I realised I didn't have access to a printer, so I just traced my old one.

I was given the patterned fabric by my great aunt.  I'm not a huge fan of it but wanted to use it.  And besides - I don't have to look at it!  I suspect it'll grow on me.  The patterned stuff is cotton and there's two layers of black cotton homespun in the back.

I added the ruffle as extra protection to keep out any light trying to sneak in around the sides.

Due to my previous experience with dodgy elastic, I thought I'd get a bit clever and attach little ribbon loops to the back to thread the elastic through.

That way if the elastic stretches it's simple to either shorten the elastic or add a new bit of elastic and not have to throw the whole thing out.

And thus ends my first post to the Bath and Beauty board!

I really like the soft colours - a perfect choice for a floaty skirt!

Thanks for the comments and suggestions!  I'm a little disappointed the weather has been so warm - I've only been able to wear the jumper twice since I bought it!  Knowing me, by the time it gets cold enough to wear it again next year I will have forgotten my plan to do more to it.  Luckily I'm happy with it as is.  Smiley

ooooh very pretty, me likes very much Smiley

I was going to say pretty much the exact same thing!  It's gorgeous!  I love the different colours and textures.

Are they made from circles of fabric with the edges gathered to the centre?

That is so pretty - I love the frills!  The black makes it perfect for wearing out in the evenings.

My husband's former workmate is having a baby in November and I decided to crochet an alien for the bub.  I used this pattern: http://pepperberry.typepad.com/my_weblog/amigurumi-alien-pattern.html and ended up with this:

I used random acrylic yarn and put a bell in the antenna ball so it rattles.  Cute, huh?

Ooh - pretty!  It looks really professional.  I love the texture and the colour.  The shimmer effect looks great.

They are really pretty!  What a great way to use up scraps of yarn.  The colours look great and I imagine they'd make fabulously light earrings.

Thanks guys!  I'm glad you like them - it's nice to have Craftster approval!

The girl who got the apricot one likes hers.  I haven't heard from the other girl though.

That looks very pretty, delicate and work intensive!  You've done a fabulous job.

I must say, when I saw the little picture, I thought the mat was part of the rpoject and it was a kimono type jacket!
