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!
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.
