Soothing Eye Mask

This summer I made an eye mask for Stitch (Interweave). I just got it back in the mail last week with a complementary copy of the issue in which it is featured (Spring 2013).

This idea of an eye mask was a project suggested by my sister. When I saw that Stitch was looking for projects for a Spa Treatment theme, I thought this was a great occasion to do it. Don’t you love going at the spa? I love it, particularly at this time of the year when your outside in a hot tub and everything is covered with snow. Either at night or when it is sunny, then the lights make the snow sparkle. We went a couple of weeks ago, and I would love to go back before the end of the winter. Don’t you think an eye mask would help to get away when it’s time to relax? This would make a great gift for someone who likes going to spas, or doing afternoon naps.

When I designed the mask, I wanted something simple. Yet I wanted to incorporate a little bit of patchwork to add personality!

The colors were inspired by the print fabric which is from the Flora collection by Lauren and Jessi Jung for Moda. Thanks to Jennifer who helped me identify the print I got from a scrap bag from the shop she was working at. I just love this color combination. It is colorful, but still very soft. Isn’t that relaxing…

If you didn’t see this issue yet, it is filled with fun projects. What I enjoyed the most was reading the article by Susan Beal on Japanese fabrics.
