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!

- Sleeping mask pattern (Click here to print and then cut out the pattern: Sleeping Mask Pattern)
(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!)
- 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)
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.
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!
