Step 1:

Note that if you don’t have a Brother SE 400 you can start at step 2.

Put the felt and the satin in the embroidery bed and place it into the embroidery arm of the Brother machine. Choose what you would like to write on the front of the mask and program it into your Brother SE 400.

Step 2:

Use the eye mask template to cut out two pieces of satin and one piece of felt. Make sure to draw the two outlines on the fabric as illustrated in the template, as you’ll need to sew along the inner line. Then cut the elastic ribbon to a 13” length strip.

Step 3:

Place the piece of satin which will be the top facing up on top of the felt if it is not already sewn together. Place the piece of satin that will be the backside of the mask facing satin side down on top of the top piece of satin. Pin the three pieces of fabric together making sure you pin the elastic in-between the two pieces of satin. So when you turn the mask inside-out the elastic will be sewn into each side of the mask.

Step 4:

Sew the edges of the mask on the inner line you drew from the eye mask template. Leaving a hole large enough to turn the mask inside-out.

Step 5:

Turn the mask inside-out, pin the remaining hole together and sew it closed. I used a zig zag stitch for the outside edge of the eye mask. Then hand stitch the fabric flowers onto one corner of the mask.

Step 6:

Get some serious beauty rest and look refreshed for your big day!
