How to Make Eye Mask in a Few Minutes
Eye masks have been a wonderful solution for many people who need to sleep in a lit area. Eye masks can assist shift workers, long-haul flyers and morning larks who sleep alongside a night owl who reads late into the night. Eye masks are also used for obtaining peace when resting and can be used for some beauty treatments. Whipping up your own simple (unpadded) homemade eye mask can be done in just a few minutes, as you'll discover here.
Creating the Pattern
Draw the pattern.This is a fairly simple pattern that you can draw freehand. Alternatively, use the template guide provided here.
- Cut the pattern out from the pattern paper.

Assembling the Eye Mask
Use fabric glue to affix the two pieces of felt or cotton fabric together.(Or, use sewing pins if preferred.)
Sew a seam stitch around the edges of the two mask pieces to complete.
Insert an elastic length each side and stitch in place (for holding the mask on your head).
Finished.This easy eye mask should have taken but minutes to cut out and assemble. Pop it on and have a nap.
QuestionDo I use felt or fabric?Community AnswerYou can use either one, depending on the thickness you want.Thanks!
QuestionDo I have to use two pieces of fabric?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerIt depends on how thick you want your eye mask to be, and how thick your material is. One layer of thin material won't be very effective in blocking light. If you just use one piece, though, you won't have to glue or sew.Thanks!
QuestionHow do I determine how long a piece of elastic I need?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerGet a piece of elastic and wrap it around your head leaving out the front (where the mask will go).Thanks!
QuestionCan I use paper instead of fabric or felt?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerThat is not recommended because you could have the possibility of getting a paper cut. Paper would also not be thick enough to block light.Thanks!
QuestionCan I use normal liquid glue?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerNormal liquid glue is usually not sufficient to keep fabric together. You will need to use fabric glue.Thanks!
QuestionCould I use cotton wool on the inside to make it more comfortable?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYes, but I would only use a little bit. Tearing up a cotton ball for material would be a good idea.Thanks!
