Each month, the subscribers to the cookiescreations website newsletter receive a project idea and/or embroidery file with directions. In April, the project was a sleep mask that stitches entirely in the hoop. After sifting through emails, I came across this one and loved the enthusiasm and "modification" of the elastic strap normally used. Such a good suggestion that I quickly realized it would be of benefit to others making their sleep mask. I have decided to upload the picture here, as well as share the thoughts of our talented Paula with permission. My own clever & talented daughter, Kristen, rates my own work in bobbins from 1 to 5 and with that said, I give Paula 5 bobbins for creativity and thinking outside of the box.
"Cookie: We are leaving in 2 weeks for vacation. I thought the Sleep Mask would be perfect. Here is my version using Velcro instead of elastic. Thanks for the pattern."Thank you Paula and you will be receiving a free design set today for sharing your project with our newsletter subscribers ~Cookie
