NEW DESIGN- In the Hoop Froggy Sleep Mask

Today I am bringing you a new design which I have just created.  I really cute in the hoop sleep mask, that is brilliant for either boys or girls.  A frog.


This gorgeous in the hoop eye mask is a beautiful and fun design.  With simple details, and some fun fabric scraps, anyone would get a good nights sleep under this wonderful mask.  Suitable for either boys or girls, I love that I have created this mask using scraps from my fabric stashes.  One of the main features of this design is the beautiful satin stitch edge.  This edge is created over 5 different layers of stitching, giving the design a truly finsihed edge, and making it simple to stitch.  For maximum comfort, avoid using metallic thread for the satin stitches around the edges of the design.
