Sleep masks are the true best friend of the always-on-the-go type of friend or the frequent-flyer colleague that you might have. They would help the user get the restful sleep by preventing any unwanted light disturbances. Buying one is always an option, but why spend the money to get something completely depersonalized when you can tailor one yourself? This is a great gift idea or a way to come up with something unique – something that you’d be the sole owner of. Let’s see how you can handcraft it on your own.

How simple is this project? You can use the same template to cut out each of the three layers that make up the mask. And because the bias tape serves as the trim, sewing is straightforward and foolproof. A sight for tired eyes, our handmade sleep masks are stylish and useful—and make thoughtful gifts for everyone on your list, from your frequent-flyer friend to your always-on-the-go partner. Lucky for you, they’re also a cinch to create: Just choose the materials (pick soft fabrics in patterns that will suit the recipients’ tastes), put them together, and sew it all up. You can make a few in a single sitting, then rest easy: You’ve just shortened your holiday to-do list, beautifully.
