Cute little sleep masks

Ladies, do you remember your first pyjama party? Oh, the joy of staying up late, watching movies, eating pizza, giggling a lot, and then finally falling asleep at one in the morning... Nowadays, the little girls have much more sophisticated parties; I'm not even sure if they do pyjama parties anymore?! But wouldn't these sleep masks make cute little party favors? Again, I've made them from left-over fabric, and there was just enough left to include a little drawstring pouch to store them in when not in use. I've embellished the pouch with a tiny gold heart for added cuteness! The sleep mask is padded with high-volume interfacing for softness, and I've made sure that the elastic is non-abrasive and fits comfortably, without being too tight. Great for in-flight use too! I wear mine at home when I feel one of my legendary migraine headaches coming on... As an aside, I wasn't able to open my windows this morning, because of the 20 cm layer of snow that had settled there overnight. This is so unusual for this area. Lucky for the kids, school only starts on the 7th - I've already seen them making snowmen!

  5. These are so cute. You always make so many great things with your leftover fabric. I am really impressed.

    Keep warm! I hope the snow disappears in time for school to start.

  11. Hi Duni, those eye masks are so pretty. What a wonderful project. I only wish I knew how to sew but that is my sister's forte!

    I second MySweetThree on the fan. My husband and I have to turn on our little fan in the bedroom to fall asleep. It's so soothing.

    Smiles,

  14. Thanks for visiting my blog. I really like those sleep masks. I'm going to keep that idea in mind for my daughter's next sleepover. Do you think it would actually help the girls to sleep instead of staying up giggling all night? Probably not, but they are cute!
