I never knew the value of an eye mask until I was traveling regularly. They save you on flights, giving you a way to black out the world and just have some peace.
When I spotted the super cute masks at Evie la Luve I knew they would be perfect for flights and even better to make as gifts. I mean who doesn’t want a pretty mask?
Using a capelet I had leftover from another project I cut some out.
The fabric on the capelet was so gorgeous it was perfect for upcycling.
I could even use the lining. All I needed to add was some decorative bra strapping for the head band. To ensure a good block out I interfaced the lining with some 3mm iron on wadding (purchased at Pitt Trading).
The result is super cute and very fast, I can foresee many of these making it into my handmade Christmas packs this year (sorry if that spoils the surprise for anyone!).
Fabric: upcycled from a capelet, originally a designer offcut. Iron on wadding purchased at Pitt Trading.
Pattern: Cat eye mask from Evie la Luve
Alterations: used decorative bra strapping instead of foldover elastic for head band. Next time make the elastic short by 2cm,
