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!
