"Wakin' Up Is Hard To Do" sleep mask
Sleeping in is one of my favourite things to do (naps come in a close second) but when the sun rises too early, what's a girl to do? Make this punny mask and keep on snoozing!

Wait for your paint to dry and then pull off the freezer paper stencil. My fabric paint needed to be set with an iron, but check the packaging to see what you should do with yours. Pin your fabric on top of your felt or fleece, and trace around the sleep mask pattern. Make sure you include the seam allowance (the non-dashed line)!
Cut out your mask, take out the pins, turn both your fabrics so they are right sides together and then re-pin at the top and botton of the mask. Cut a length of elastic 36cm long and thread it through the middle of your mask, with about 1.5cm of elastic hanging out either side. Fold the ends of the elastic so they are flat against your felt or fleece and pin them into position.
Use your sewing machine or needle and thread to stitch around your mask, leaving a gap at the top for turning. Stitch back and forth over the elastic to ensure it stays in place and cut little triangles from the seam allowance around the curves so that it will turn nicely (tiny fabric scissors or snips are very handy for this!).
