Our newest creation and latest addition to our Etsy Shop, Bedtime Sleep Masks ! These are fun and addicting to create, easy and addicting to use :) Quality 100% cotton prints are lined with a slim batting for light-blocking properties. These first sleep masks have a plush, soft backing that cushions and pampers. I will be making some with satin backing soon so buyers can have a choice. I’m using soft lingerie elastic for a comfy fit.
Does your room mate like to read while you’re trying to sleep ? Using a sleeping mask will block out the light :) Know someone who works 3rd shift and has to cope with daylight when they need to sleep ? This is the perfect answer ! Sleep masks are a good travel sleep aid, helping to block lights and distractions on a bus, plane or train and allow the wearer to unwind.
I battle migraines and can attest that when the eyes are sensitive to light, a sleeping mask helps block the light and gently holds the eyes shut, encouraging relaxation. A sleep mask is a welcome ‘Get Well’ gift that can help a patient adjust to a hospital stay. Hospitals rarely turn off the lights, even at night; so it can be a challenge to get needed sleep.
Mother’s Day and Father’s Day are coming as well as the end of the school year. Sleep Masks will make unique gifts for parents, teachers, a coach or tutor :) Planning a Bridal Shower or Bachelorette Party ? Need a different Wedding Gift ? Check out the the wedding-themed fabrics used for some of the sleep masks already listed in the shop.
I have enjoyed sewing these new items for the shop. They are quick to assemble with satisfying results. The only issue I have is that the wonderful plush fabric sprinkles little fibers of nap when it’s cut. These sweet little puffs cling to my clothing and hands. While I do shake the fabric outside before cutting and I cut the small details out over a wastepaper basket, I’m still wearing a variety of colored puffs~ Just to clarify, they do NOT shed after being made or when in use, it’s just when I’m in the process of cutting the fabric :)
