Sleep like an Owl in any light.
This is a super easy sleep mask. It shouldn't take you more than 20 minutes to make. Eventually I'll get around to making a more difficult version but until then, I hope you enjoy this one.

    Start with making your pattern. I used an old eye mask I already had laying around and added 3 points to the top. Mine was about 7.5 inches by 3.25 inches wide.

    You can use elastic to fit your mask around your face but I'm going to use ribbon. To best do this cut two small pieces of ribbon that you can fold in half to make loops.
