Earlier this week my daughter was in the middle of finals. She had one morning to sleep in amidst all the late night studying, projects, work and school. But she couldn’t do it because the sun peeks through her blinds in just the wrong way. When she mentioned it to me, I knew I could fix her problem before her next opportunity to sleep in. I saw this tutorial and made one of my own. I was short on time, so I didn’t hand sew mine. Here’s how it turned out:

I’m not sure if she loved it more because it was so useful or because she was able to create a funny Instagram photo with it. :)

Either way, this would be a great last minute gift for any college student. Sleep is high on my list of important things, so anything that helps achieve a better sleep is a thumbs up.
