Eyeshade DIY

I have so much trouble falling and staying asleep, I consider myself an insomniac. It's sad, it's frustrating and it's tiring. But this year I decided that instead of taking a sleeping pill I would try some alternate treatments. Some of which are meditation, sleeping soundseating better and wearing a eyeshade every night.

I had this really, really old eye mask that my dad got from an airline company when he traveled to China. And it was starting to fall apart. So, when I saw this tutorial, I thought it was easy enough for me to try it, and, if it worked, I would have a brand new eyeshade to help me fight insomnia.

So, I took my sewing machine from the closet for the first time in a couple of years! I wanted to make a mask exactly like the one I already had, so I used some batting leftover and my own mask as  template, but the tutorial was really helpful.

And after some trial and error, my eye mask was done!

P.S.: I found this really good YouTube video teaching how to sew a blind stitch. It was really helpful!
