I have come to terms with it... Yes my daughter is a little Diva. What 5 year old begs for a sleeping mask? Mine does!! Funny thing was that her little friend had been begging for one too. And then a third little friend was kind of feeling left out because she didn't have one of these silly masks. So one day while the girls were playing here, I thought heck I could make one for this little friend of ours and I could not believe how easy this was!
I should have taken more pics but I didn't! Here is what I did though. I traced Madi's original mask, (you wouldn't need one to trace just look at this shape and free hand it.) Then I cut a bottom layer, a top layer, and a layer of batting for the middle all that same shape.
Then I embellished the top layer. I just ironed on a B (for bailey) and added some diamonds. Pretty simple, but you could go crazy! Next I took the really thin elastic and measured it about 12 inches and pinned it to both sides.
And last I took double folded extra wide Bias tape and used it to finish the edges and hold the whole thing together.
This was so fast and something a little different. I think they would be so cute for a slumber party or something! If your little girl is a diva you gotta make her one!
