DIY Holly Golightly Sleep Mask

Hi folks,

tonight is the night! :) And as watching the Oscars in Austria, which here start at about 2am in the morning, either means to sleep when it's still light or when it's again light outside I decided that I definitely needed a sleep mask to be able to fall asleep at all. And who wore the coolest sleep mask in film history? Exactly! Audrey Hepburn in "Breakfast at Tiffany's". Therefore I decided to make myself my personal Holly Golightly sleep mask.

What you'll need
  • piece of turquoise fabric (I used a thicker kind of jersey)
  • piece of fleece.
  • ca. 1,5 m gold ribbon
  • turquoise and gold/brown sewing thread
  • scissors
  • pins
  • needle
  • sleep mask template plus eye template (you can find loads of them via Google)
  • sewing machine 

How it works

Cut out the paper sleep mask and eye template and transfer it to your turquoise fabric (2 times or on double layered fabric). Add 1 cm seam allowance to your mask and to the upper bow of the eye. Then cut everything out. You should now have two masks and two eyes. In addition cut out one mask out of the fleece (without seem allowance).

Take one of your fabric eyes and sew a piece of gold ribbon (in the lenghts of the lower bow of the eye) on it. Do the same with the other eye. Then take one of your mask pieces and stitch the eyes onto the right side of it (by hand).

Lay the front side of the mask on the back side of the mask, wrong sides facing. Put two pieces of gold ribbon (each about 50cm long) between the two pieces of fabric so that the longer parts of the ribbons are inside the mask. Then pin the two sides together and stitch them together leaving an about 5cm hole.

Make some short cuts into the seam allowance. Turn around the mask and put the fleece into it. Then close the hole by hand.

In a last step pin the remaining gold ribbon onto the front side of your mask and stitch it on using a brown/gold upper thread and a turquoise bobbin thread.
