Project ReStyle: Sweet dreams!

Sometimes Trev stays up longer than I do, working on the computer or reading. I don't mind that at all, but sometimes the light keeps me from drifting away as fast as I normally would. And since it seems that I don't get anything serious done today, I invested some time and made myself a sleeping mask.

I used an accidentally felted vest, some leftover fabric, the sleeve of an old jumper and an old stocking.
I cut a pattern from paper and cut the middle piece out of the felt, to give the mask some stability. Then I added the fabric on both sides (I used the soft sleeve for the inside and the shiny velvet-y stuff for the outside). I cut the stocking to the right length and threaded it through some pink ribbon to serve as a headband, since I realised I'd run out of elastic. It worked wonderfully. Then I added a piece of the lace from the top of the stocking to the front of the mask for decoration, trimmed the ends neatly - et voila!

Seems like I'll have to share though...

Happy Monday to you! And if it is not so happy, consider making something - even a small thing. It really helps, I tell you.
love from me to you!

Oh this mask is just too cute! I've just been looking through all your refashions! Great work!

I'd love if you linked any of them up to my clothes upcycling page. There are almost 100 ideas there - a great resource for people to come to for inspiration of what to do with their old clothes!

Do come and take a look!

Hope you have a lovely weekend!
