How To: Sew an Eye Shade

I have been having trouble sleeping lately, so I decided to make an eye shade. I am using silk and lining from an old jacket and osnaburg that I had lying around.

I cut out a shape that covers my eyes completely. The elastic should not be too tight for sleeping.

Sew all three pieces of fabric and the elastic together leaving room to turn it right side out.

Slip stitch the opening shut. I didn't even press it. The silk is really soft!

Now for a good night's sleep.
I can hardly wait!


  1. Very cool. I've been wanting to make these for quite some time. You've certainly inspired me.
    And I love your cat sisters!
