  • Fabric for lining
  • Hand sewing needle

  • Kitty Sleep Mask (Download Here)
Print off the kitty sleep mask template. Make sure to print off the template at 100% scale or it could be too small. 

Cut out your kitty mask template in your minky/fuzzy fabric, one from your lining and one from your fusible fleece. 
Apply your fusible fleece to your lining piece. You can also add a blackout fabric to the inside for more light restriction. 

Measure the elastic from ear to ear and cut that length. Stitch each end of your elastic to the sides of your masks lining. 
Lay your minky/fuzzy side facing down on your lining piece. Make sure all the elastic is inside. Stitch around the sleep mask leaving a small opening between the ears.  
Trim around the curves and the corners of the ears. Flip to the write side!

Take black embroidery floss and create your whiskers.

Use the small opening to keep all your stitches on the inside of the sleep masks. I did one long stitch for each whisker. Knot on the side. 

Fold the edges of the opening on the inside and stitch closed.

This cowl scarf is so easy to make! I made this one in just a few minutes and it looks so stylish and warm. I had this plaid fabric scrap laying since I made some Christmas stockings with it a few years back. Yes, I said years. Tell me I'm not the only with a fabric stash here ;) 

The plaid has some ivory in it and I thought it would look fabulous with this rose minky fabric
You can use really any fabric for this scarf. Just remember if you use a stretch fabric to use stretch stitches instead of the straight stitch! I like to pair a warm fuzzy fabric for the inside, but that is completely up to you!

I hope you really enjoy this tutorial and let me know what you think of this style in the comments below? Would you wear it?

Hey everyone! 

It's wintertime here in Canada and ironcally that means its sunglass season for me! When there is snow, the sun can be blinding! So out some the sunglasses. I really needed a new sunglass case for my shades and I saw these everywhere on etsy and I thought to myself. . . These look so easy to recreate! So I sat down and drew out some templates and sewed these up in ( I'm not kidding) like ten minutes. . . And that included cutting out the faux leather. 


So fast and easy and these would actually make a fantastic last minute gift! 


Don't be intimidated by the faux leather, it's super easy to sew with!

Hope you enjoy!
