Something from an Alternate fandom
Aah, Doctor Who, how I do love thee....
This is a sleep mask that I made, which I embroidered with the phrase 'Don't Blink', I really hope that there aren't any Weeping Angels around though, they're terrifying!
I also thought I'd do a few progress shots, as I haven't made anything in a while, and I wanted to make the most of it!
First I drew around one of my existing eye masks, and cut the template out of paper. I seem to be rather unlucky with the masks I use - the elastic always breaks, so perhaps if I can make them, it would be cheaper all around!
I then cut out, using the above template, 2 patterned cotton pieces for the front and back, and a fleecey one for the middle, so it doesn't let light in.
I then embroidered the front...
And promptly started sewing it all together. So much so that I forgot to take a picture of attaching the elastic. Basically, i measured the elastic around my ears, cut it and then attached it my sewing it into the seem as I sandwiched the fleece in the middle.
Turn it all out, hand stitch it closed, and tada!
But Matt Smith is leaving! *tears*
