These monstrously cute sleep masks are easy to make out of fleece and felt. They are easy to customize and since these fabrics don't fray, you don't have to worry about hemming. It's a great project for kids learning how to sew.Download Easy Sew Monster Sleep Masks Template
Cut out two "mask" pieces out of fleece. Use felt and/or fleece for the monster's features and cut out the desired number of eyes, eyelids and horns. Arrange the features on the right side of the outer mask piece.
Cut a piece of elastic cord that is large enough to fit comfortably around your child's head and be slightly snug. I used about 11" for my masks. Tie a knot close to each end of the cord.
Using a sewing machine, sew the eyes (and eyelids, if using) onto the outside of the mask. Place the back mask piece behind the front mask piece, wrong sides together so that right sides are facing out. If you are using horns, tuck them in between the front and back of the mask and pin. Place one side of the knotted elastic cord inbetween the mask pieces (placement is indicated by a dot on the pattern). With a 1/4" seam allowance, Start sewing just above the cord. Sew over the cord (not the knot), and backstich a couple of times to secure it. Continue seing alround the mask until just before you reach the spot for the other end of the elastic cord. Tuck the free end of the cord inbetween the mask pieces and continue to sew. Again, backstitch a couple of times to secure the cord. Continue sewing around the mask, careful not to catch the elastic cord and removing pins as necessary, until you reach the point where you started. Backstitch once or twice and remove from the machine.
Trim any excess fabric and thread, and you're all finished!
