Sleeping Unicorn

Hi all :))

Just a quick post to showcase this weeks project for The Cutting Cafe.

This week we could work with any file we wanted, so I used the Mask template, available here-: https://thecuttingcafe.typepad.com/the_cutting_cafe/mask-template/

Here is how the file cut out from card, before I used it as a pattern for a sleep mask.

Now here it is after I worked a bit of magic, and added a hint of imagination to it.

Don’t you just love it? I do, it’s so cute!! Not to mention perfect for those days when you have migraine and the light hurts your eyes. Believe me when I say, that this is going to be very useful.

The fabric used was a satin lining fabric, (cheap as chips), with a double layer of fusible fleece for the lining. A little handstitching for the eyes, along with handmade flowers, makes it pretty sweet if I do say so myself.

Although if I should make another like this, I would probably buy some strung sequins to add on, instead of hand sewing them individually. I had almost finished the row before I got to grips with them.

Well I hope you like todays project. I think it shows that The Cutting Cafe files really are versatile, and not limited to papercrafts. Now head on over to the website and check out the rest of the design teams projects.

I’m sure you will be inspired, so until next time…. Happy crafting xx.
