alright. here it is... hopefully this is good. i took millions of pictures. will only use a few and if you need the pic to accompany the words. just let me know and i'll add it. Smiley my boyfriend now thinks i'm nuts cause he was playing video games in the same room. i talked myself through it like i was on a crafty show all the while taking pictures..hehe Tongue he kept asking me if i was talking to him..oops.

1. pick fabric and place with piece that touches your face (pink flannel) the good side up, pretty fabric (pink print) good side facing the flannel (basically right sides facing eachother) and your darkening stuff. i used corduroy cause i had it. check it against a lamp and see if your fabric works for darkening.

2. get the template i made from http://ca.msnusers.com/CraftyCrafty/documents.msnw i put it in pdf format so just print it out and cut it out. (edit: apparently you need to join my msn group to print it out..oops anyways you can quit after you do. didn't know of any other way to have a pdf for you to print out)

3. place on top of all three fabrics and cut them all out at the same time. makes it faster. your pieces should look like this. keep them in that order

4.cut a piece of elastic measuring about 17 inches (adjust to the size of your head).  and cut out a piece of fabric that will be the covering for the elastic 2 inches wide by 21 inches long. if you don't want a covered elastic ignore the fabric part on this step.

5. fold the fabric for the elastic cover in half lengthwise and sew it 1/4 inch from the edge.

turn right side out and then iron it so that the seam is in the middle of one side. feed the elastic into the tube of fabric. make sure you pin the elastic at each end so that it doesn't get lost inside.

6. take your mask sandwich and gently pin the tube with elastic in place.

7. pin around so that the pieces will stay together.

8. go to the sewing machine and sew around the mask about 4/8ths (the line between 3/8 and 5/8) this doesn't have to be so precise just even. make sure to leave a space open at the top so that you can turn the whole thing right side out later on.

check that you sewed it even and if not just rip some out or sew a bit closer to make the curves even.

9. trim so that you have about 1/4 inch left all around. and clip the curves so that they turn better.

10. turn right side out and shape. iron your mask so that its all pretty and flat. turn the edges in on the top press them so they stay in and hand sew closed with a hidden stitch. ( i cheated and haven't sewn mine yet. hence no pictures of me actually handsewing.)

11. sit back and enjoy your pretty sleep mask.

12. go have a nap with all the lights on to try it out. Tongue

any problems let me know. oh and if you make this you must post pictures!!! Smiley can't wait to see them. coloursknits i want to see the one you make for your hubby

Argh!  Wonderful choice of fabrics, yet again!  Can you do no wrong?

I think I might just have to make one of these myself...just so I can feel like I am spoiling myself ;P

Thank you for the tutorial :]

Hey thanks for the awesomely cute idea! I made my own template, and used flannel fabric on the side that touches the face for softness. And I wrote "dreaming of you" with a silver fabric pen. But you can't really see it in the pic. I am giving it to my cuz for graduation.
