In case you guys weren’t aware – because I’m really bad at life updates – I went back to school. It’s only one class right now, but that on top of a crazy work schedule means that I am adulting like crazy over here.

Okay, so last year for my birthday I ordered a TON of sleep masks for a make and take craft. Needless to say I had a bunch left over and I’ve been trying to think of a fun thing to do with them. As it is Valentines (or Galentines) season, what better way to use them than with this DIY Conversation Hearts Sleep Mask. As I was making them, I envisioned myself having a sleep over where we all made these. Alas, as I’m adulting and working and going to class all the time, that is not happening, but a girl can dream right!

To start, trace out the shape of your sleep mask on the white felt and cut it out. Glue it to the front of the sleep mask.

Trace and cut out your hearts from the desired color of felt.

To add words, there are three methods you can use.
1. Cut out your phrases on HTV using a silhouette or a cricut die cutter
2. Use puffy paint for your words
3. Embroider your phrases using the chain stitch – it gives you a thicker line and is incredibly easy!

I used methods 1 and 3.

To adhere your HTV – should you choose to go that route, make sure you are using a cloth between the iron and your surface. Felt sheets can tend to melt and no one wants that stuck to their iron. Just work slowly and deliberately.

To embroider the phrases I sketched each phrase on the heart and used it as a guide. From there I backstitched. MollieMakes has a really awesome library of embroidery stitches if you’re not sure what that is. I also took some process shots… so YAY!

Once your hearts are finished, it’s time to adhere them to your white base!

Simply arrange them on the mask as you’d like and glue the bottom heart first. I found it was easier to adhere a corner and add glue and adhere in stages so I didn’t have anything cooling off too quickly. Do the second heart the same way and trim off any glue strings.
