I’ve made an eye mask to give to a friend who’s currently without curtains and in need of some  more shut eye.  I found this little tutorial which is so simple to follow.  With the half inch seam allowance, despite the pattern looking big enough, did come out a little small for my liking.

I’m planning to make another one for myself.  I tend to sleep with one of these each night & my freebie airline ones are wearing thin.  I might try and make my next one a little bigger, and whilst I used a felt lining inside, will try and use a thicker outer fabric to maximise the black eye effect.

Here’s mid point:
