Recycling an old sock to make a soft comfy Eye Mask

  It gets light much too early for me here in the UK in May. I now put my sock eye mask on to cut out the light to help me sleep a bit longer. It works !

HOW TO MAKE AN EASY PEASY SOCK EYE MASK



Cut a piece out of heel to allow for turning inside out


Turn inside out and sew across the toe and across the top


Trim seam allowance to about 1cm


Thread elastic thread onto a large eyed needle.
 Push needle through the edge seam from the inside bottom left
Into the edge seam bottom right
Out at top right seam
Over and into top left seam
Adjust length of elastic to fit your head comfortably
Cut off at desired length and knot ends together inside sock


Close the opening at the back with a few small hand stitches
Your Eye Mask is now complete
