Super Hero Mask Pattern & Tutorial

by Kelsey Norwood

in Crafts,Sewing

Part 2 of the Too Late for Christmas tutorial series is superhero masks!

These were so easy I made two in every color and I used this pattern  that is perfect in every way.

MATERIALS

  • washable felt
  • Heat’N Bond
  • 3/8″ braided elastic

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. fuse 2 layers of felt together with Heat’N Bond
  2. trace mask pattern onto mask and cut out
  3. edge stitch around the perimeter and the eye holes, attaching elastic on the sides (placement indicated on the perfect pattern)
    • 12″ of elastic for a 19″ head is just about right. If you don’t use enough elastic it pulls the mask at the sides too much and mashes the eye holes which is no good.

That’s it! So easy and so great for birthday gifts or just because.

The heat’n bond is making my bobin thread bind up, so I’m going to try is without. Thanks for the cute template. I’m SO excited!

Thanks so much! I just made two of these for some little buddies for their birthday today. My 2 year old has never let me put a costume type thing on him and after seeing his sister trying one, he wanted to try too… and he is soooo mad that I don’t have one for him. Back to the craft store for more elastic after this afternoon’s birthday party. :) Oh, and I skipped the heat n’ bond. It came together great with pins holding it til I got it sewed on.

I made the masks using craft foam. So easy, only took minutes to make.
