Pattern: Eye Mask by Amy Butler from In Stitches
Fabric: Blue Gnomes by Heather Ross and some of the coordinating dots fabric
Notes: I made KV a pillow with this fabric last year for her birthday, and I had big plans to make this eye mask with the remnants for this year. This was a pretty big step up for me, as my previous sewing practice basically entailed making rectangles. Badly. This project involved quilting in straight lines, sewing around curves, and sewing on straps. While my stitches aren’t perfect by any means, I think the end result turned out rather well. KV likes it, and that’s what matters.
I learned new skills, had lots of fun, and discovered just how difficult it is to take a photo of yourself while wearing a mask. D’oh!
