for the past few years, sleeping thru the night with out drugs isnt easy. and i love sleeping. i have even trained my kids NOT to even bother coming to my side of the bed at night. dad is the one they go to for a midnight belly ache.
best thing i ever taught them.
about a month ago i found these lovely things in a junk drawer and decided to use them. mostly because chris made fun of me. (hey-they were free!) but let me tell you-i sleep so soundly now it is CRAZY!
as most of you know, im headed to girls camp very soon. (proof that God has a sense of humor) i wanted to make a pair of these that could get ruined and i wouldnt cry.
i found a scrap of galexy fabric (left over from a star wars birthday party years ago) and some brown felt to help block the light. (too bad nothing will block the sound of 250 teen girls awake in their tents!) i also had some string like elastic to go around my head. i traced my tylenol eye shades onto the fabric and cut that and the felt out. i zig zag-ed them together just to keep them from moving around and trimmed the edges.
then i realized i should figure out how to do the elastic...
good one ba.
i just measured what i have on my original one and added an extra inch for me to have room to sew them down.
i sewed those on by going back and forth a million and 2 times.
finally i made some edging with the rest of the galexy fabric. i had to cut a slit in the fabric to get the elastic thru, so i had the fabric start/end right where the elastic came thru.
im not too worried because i plan on chucking it when i get home.
that is if i get home.
we are camping in bear country.
who thought this was a good idea?
