Sleep Mask (free)

Helens Closet

Hi everyone! Chloe here. I am back again with another sustainable scrap-busting project for you- a sleep mask! Scrap-busting uses up those little bits of fabric that are left over from bigger projects; it helps us sewists to be more sustainable and have fun doing it!

Sleep masks are wonderful for several reasons. First off, wearing one makes you feel like Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. They are also perfect for blocking light when you want to get a good night’s sleep in summertime. I really like to have one with me when I fly, especially for long-haul or overnight flights. Sewing your own sleep mask ensures an adorable mask that will make everyone around you envious.
I made two sleep masks. The first one is made of floral print cotton, with store-bought double-fold bias tape and an exposed elastic strap. The second mask is made from a linen-cotton blend, with a quilted mask and scrunchie-style strap. I’ll explain how to make both kinds in this post.
This is an excellent scrap buster not only for small bits of fabric but those leftover pieces of bias binding and elastic, too!
