Wondering how to sew a sleep mask? Use this free sleep mask sewing pattern and tutorial to make your own! #sleepmask

If there’s one thing I always want more of, it’s sleep. My kids live to pounce on me and wake me up, or come ask me questions when my husband is kindly letting me sleep in. I thought maybe a sleep mask would help me ignore them, so I’m sharing this free sleep mask sewing pattern! This would be a great project if you’re taking any trips soon, or maybe the perfect stocking stuffer for any friends who have little people poking them awake.

This would be easy to sew up sans the sassy phrase, it’s a nice size to use up scraps but still show off fun fabric prints. You can see I used FOE, fold-over elastic, it’s my favorite for headbands because it’s super soft and doesn’t pinch hair when it stretches.

Ok, so it’s not perfect, haha! My littlest still came over and poked at me, but she’s only 2 so hopefully once she can read what it says she will leave me alone when I’m trying to sleep? Wishful thinking, I’m sure.

This is an intermediate project; sewing the tight curves can be tricky, my advice would be to go slow and use an applique foot which is clear so you can see underneath it!

Supplies

 

Steps

1- Use the template and cut on the fold, with two cotton masks and one fusible fleece. Follow the instructions to fuse the fleece to the wrong side of one mask, and decorate the right side of the other mask (file that I used is linked above).

2- Center your elastic and baste it along the edges, trimming off what hangs over.

3- Layer both masks right sides together and sew with 1/4″ seam allowance, leaving a 3″ gap at the top. You can snip small triangles out of the seam allowance around the curves if desired, to help it lay flat when turned right side out.

4- Turn it right side out, use an iron to press and tuck the seam allowance in, and top stitch around the edges, and you’re done!
