DIY peanut eye mask

I couldn't have chosen a better post to write about while still laying in bed. These rainy gloomy days make me the laziest ever, and I'm completely fine with that. I can't stop thinking about summer, not because the days will long and everybody goes outside to play. But really just because summer means I don't have school & I can be lazy to my fullest potential. So that's the story behind my lazy mask, why its a peanut? Well don't face masks look like peanuts already? Let them just be!

#1. Beige felt
#2. Black thread
#3. Mustard thread 
#4. Scissors
#5. Elastic
#6. Needle (Not shown)
#7. 30 minutes of your time

Step one: Cut the felt into a peanut shaped eye mask. Very similar to DSMeeBee's bridal eye mask template!

Step two: With a fabric marker or pencil, draw the lines going horizontally and vertically. This will make the sewing so much more do-able which by the way will be done in the orange thread.

Step three: Add some sleeping eyes to your nut! Then cut off all those loose dangly ends.

Step four: Place the elastic around your head to measure the right size. Then cut an Inch or so smaller so that it'll fit you nice and snug. Sew the ends to your nutty mask & done! 

Forever Lazy!

D.i.y Felt Gift Bow

Happy christmas eve! Can not believe christmas is almost over. To be honest it didn't really feel too christmasy this year, I know school had a lot to do with that as well as running around all the time. So to save time I thought I would make gift wrapping easy with these felt gift bows. They are a perfect way to top any small package. But I must say my favorite is wrapping one around a wine, and the best part is you can use these all year round. I make enough to save me throughout the whole year. That way when a birthday or special event comes up and I have nothing to give, I grab me one of these, head to the market & done. Oh and they are totally reusable!


#1. Glue gun
#2. Glue sticks 
#3. Scissors
#4. Ruler 
#5. Felt
#6. 20 mins of your time

Step one: Choose the type of felt you'd like to use.

Step two: Use these measurements for length and width.  I was to lazy to cut each strip so I just guesstimated.

Step three: Glue each strip into criss cross ribbons (similar to breast cancer awareness ones).
& leave that little piece shown below alone. You'll use it later.

Step four: Pile longest ribbons on the bottom (3 of them) and so on. 
3 strips, 10 1/2" x 3/4"
3 strips, 9 1/2" x 3/4"
2 strips, 8 1/2" x 3/4"
1 strip, 3 1/2" x 3/4" 

Step five: Now its time to use that small strip and form a circle. This will go on the top of the pile of ribbons.

I made a burgundy one as well!

I also decided to add elastic to tie around a bottle of wine for a quick gift wrap!

Just hot glue the elastic to the bottom of the bow, then glue a piece of felt to secure it. 

Or turn it into a pin! Perfect for holiday parties or simply to be festive.
