I made this mask out of scraps lying around my sewing room. The mint green polka dot was originally used as lining for one of my sisters Rosa jackets. I’ve put a layer of fleece in the middle as padding – it is unfortunately pink and you can see the colour shining through a little!
I won’t go into the how’s and why’s of making the mask itself. There’s a ton of tutorials (and free patterns) online already. I used this one here from the Tilly and the Buttons blog.
Here are some ideas, though, on personalising them! (Which let’s face it, is one of the main reasons we bother making these things!)
– freehand machine embroidery (that’s what I’ve done with mine!)
– felt features either stuck or stitched on
– add on animal ears onto the pattern itself
What would you put on yours?
