Today I am sharing this adorable and comfortable Aviator Sunglasses Sleep Mask Crochet Pattern. While most nights I can fall asleep quickly (when not interrupted by baby waking me several times!), sometimes extra help may be required, and this sleep mask offers both comfort and assistance! Plus who could resist those adorable aviator sunglasses?! So grab yourself some cozy Crochet Sandals, sit back, and let’s get crocheting!

Hi CBA readers! My name is Bethany from Whistle & Ivy.

I designed this Aviator Sunglasses Sleep Mask with only one layer, not including lenses, but if you would prefer something thicker, just slip stitch a separate back piece to the top piece after sewing on lenses and embroidering a connecting piece.

Fold-over elastic is especially comfortable and won’t pull at your hair!
