6. Cut a piece of elastic big enough to fit around your head, allowing enough elastic for sewing onto the mask. When you’re happy, stitch the elastic onto the white eye mask shape you cut out previously.

7. Place the pink eye mask shape on top of the white eye mask shape, ensuring the sewn elastic is in between the two layers. Stitch around the mask to secure the two pieces together.
