Bridal Eye Mask - Every Bride Needs Her Beauty Rest!

The night before the big wedding the bride must have her beauty rest! This is a quick fun tutorial that will be a cute gift for any bride.

Things you will need:
  • Satin $5 a yard
  • Felt $1 per sheet
  • 13” of elastic $0.50
    • I used a lace ribbon elastic.
  • DSMeeBee Eye Mask Template
  • Fabric Flower Ribbon $2 a yard
    • I found mine at my local fabric store.
Thing from home:
  • Scissors
  • Needle and Thread 
  • Thin Marker
  • Sewing Machine
    • Brother SE 400 (Sewing and Embroidery Machine) $365
      • Best machine EVER!!! It's expensive but totally worth it!

    Step 1:
    If you don't have a Brother SE 400 you can start at step 2. Put the felt and the satin in the embroidery bed and place it into the embroidery arm of the Brother machine. Choose what you would like to write on the front of the mask and program it into your Brother SE 400. 

    Step 2:
    Using the DSMeeBee eye mask template and cut out two piece of satin and one piece of felt and cut the elastic ribbon to a 13” length strip. 
     Step 3:
    Place the piece of satin which will be the top facing up on top of the felt if it is not already sewn together. Place the piece of satin that will be the backside of the mask facing satin side down on top of the top piece of satin. Pin the three piece of fabric together making sure you pin the elastic in-between the two piece of satin. So when you turn the mask inside-out the elastic will be sewn into each side of the mask. 
     Step 4:
    Sew the edges of the mask on the line you drew from the eye mask template. Leaving a hole large enough to turn the mask inside-out. 
     Step 5:
    Turn the mask inside-out and pin the remaining hole together. I used a zig zag stitch for the outside edge of the eye mask. Hand stitch the fabric flower onto one corner of the mask.

    Step 6:
    Sleep well! Get some beauty rest and look your most beautiful and refreshed for your big day!
