Reversible Sleeping Mask Free Sewing Pattern

The pillowcases were such a hit last week, I thought I’d give all of you a little something extra to go with them…Sleeping Masks!

We made these sleeping masks in a free online class I hosted awhile back, so there are a lot of you here that maybe haven’t seen them.

They literally take minutes to make, and will eat up your stash!

Enjoy,

Nikki, In Stitches

Materials:

  • Sleeping 
mask 
pattern 
(Click here to print and then cut out the pattern: Sleeping Mask Pattern)
  • 4″
x
8″
 scraps 
of 
two 
coordinating 
cotton
 fabrics 
and 
batting
    (This is the perfect project to use your scraps! Not only your odd cut little pieces of cotton, but also the trimmings from your quilt batting!)

  • Scissors
  • Straight 
pins
  • 3/8″
 wide 
elastic 
(cut 
to 
a 
piece 
13″ 
long)
  • Sewing
 machine 
and 
basic 
sewing 
supplies
  • Iron 
and 
ironing 
board
  • 1/4″
wide
 double 
fold 
bias 
tape 
(cut 
to 
a 
piece 
20″ 
long)

Directions:

1.
 Cut 
pattern
 shape
 3
 times,
 once 
from
 each
 of 
your
 coordinating
 cotton
 prints,
and
 once
 from your
 batting. 
Layer 
them 
together 
with
 the wrong sides of your cotton together, batting in between, as in the picture below.


2. 
Pin 
elastic 
to 
back 
of 
sleeping 
mask 
at 
each
 edge.

3.
 Open 
bias 
tape. 
Pin 
raw 
edge 
of 
bias 
tape 
along 
the 
back 
of 
the
 mask, 
all 
the 
way 
around
 the 
perimeter.

NOTE: For a finished look, fold over the last 1/2″ of bias tape, and press. Layer as in the close up pictures below. If you’re familiar with sewing a quilt binding, this technique for hiding raw edges should look familiar!




4. 
Sew 
in 
ditch 
of
 first 
bias 
tape 
fold, 
all 
the 
way 
around.


5. 
Fold 
bias 
tape 
over 
to 
the 
front 
of 
the 
mask, 
so 
that 
the 
folded 
edge falls 
just 
over 
the machine 
stitched 
seam. 
Hand 
stitch 
in 
place.


6. 
Hand 
tack 
elastic 
at 
each 
end 
of 
the 
back 
of 
the 
mask 
so 
that 
it
 goes 
”out.” 
See the pictures below for help with placement!

  2. Christine says:

    This is so cute! (And, I need one!) Would you mind if I featured your tutorial on my blog? I would be using my own photos of my project, but linking back to your tutorial!

    • Nikki says:

      Christine! Your comment slipped through the cracks and I’m just seeing it!
      Go right ahead and share! Thanks so much for the link back!!

  3. Kelly salazar says:

    I have a question about the silhouette versus the cricut? Would you be able to answer that?

    • Nikki says:

      Kelly,
      I’ve never used a Cricut so I’m not sure I’m the best person to make a comparison, but I can certainly answer any questions you may have about the Silhouette!!
