Thanks =) I learned to sew during elementary school, both with the help of my mom and with sewing projects from school. It's something that I have enjoyed ever since.

Maybe you could ask mr.Hong about teaching the class how to sew it will help us in life and give u a head start in high school.

You are reading our mind! ;) Mr. Hong and I have already discussed about doing some kind of sewing project with the class. Hopefully we will get a chance to do it in April/May =)

Yes, I agree- sewing is a very handy life skill as well as a great way to be creative!

I learned about customizing sewing projects to better suit my needs =) Please see my reply to Sandy for details on how I modified the original project.

Wow Ms.Fei, you are extremely talented! I wish I knew how to do that! A sleeping mask that I purchased was around 10 dollars and not nearly as pretty as yours! What materials did you use? Where did you get the idea to make this? Great job!

@ Sandy

The mask is made out of felt fabric and cotton fabric. I got the idea while browsing craftgawker.com =) The tutorial for it can be found at http://mintedstrawberry.blogspot.ca/2013/01/diy-panda-in-love-sleeping-mask.html.

I modified the original panda mask by 1) adding an extra layer of black felt to the sleeping mask to block out light (you can't see this layer) and 2) adding a cotton fabric backing to the mask so that it feels softer (felt fabric can feel quite scratchy). I will add a picture of the back of the mask soon.
