BACK OFF! the return of the sleeping masks!

Remember the BACK OFF sleeping masks? I have made more! They have been seriously re-fabulized. I didn't embroider onto a purchased sleeping mask this time, but created my own. I made a simple pattern and behold:
I didn't use a sewing machine though. These are completely hand-stitched. I feel rather ambivalent about sewing machines. Maybe from all those years of taking sewing lessons and being a complete failure at it. When I was fifteen, I followed a pattern for shortalls faithfully. Oh, what are shortalls?
The belt adds a nice touch!
The ones I finished were pretty cute, but I couldn't figure out why the front was so much longer than the back. Yeeaaah, I must not have looked closely enough at the pattern, because the shortalls were maternity shortalls. Oops. Did I mention that I was fifteen years old? (Mom, I have something to tell you . . . .) I think that this is proof for the tea-party folks that domesticity leads to sin. 
Back to the sleep masks!
For sale only at Craft Lake City!
UPDATE: My friend found this exclusive photo:
Roseanne was so ahead of her time.


  1. I am going to make my husband buy me one of these at the next gifting opportunity. Love.

  2. I will make sure to let you know when I put them up on my etsy. Also, you can customize them! Color, trim, special made-to-order gypsy curse, etc.

  3. That denim shirt in the shortalls picture? Pretty sure my mom has the same one! And the same black leggings hahaha. And I am pretty sure every child in my family had shortalls hahaha!
