  • White scraps
  • Pellon® EZ-Steam II 2-Sided Pressure Sensitive Fusible Web, 9"x 12", 1

DIRECTIONS:

  1. To print the patterns, click on the "Download Project PDF" button (above). Enlarge patterns.
  2. Cut one wing on fold from black fleece.
  3. Cut two of each wing detail patterns from orange fleece. (A, B, C)
  4. Lay the wing WSU. Fold down the sleeves at the line indicated on the pattern and pin. Sew in place with a zig zag stitch over the long edges, leaving the ends open for shoulders and wrists. This will create sleeves. Sew a second line of straight stitching 1/2" from edges.
  5. Pin the detail cutouts in place on the wings as per the pattern layout. Sew a zig zag stitch around the edges of each. Start the stitching on the large curve at the bottom edge of each panel.
  6. Cut out two masks out of black fleece. Pin together and sew close to the edges. Sew a zig zag stitch around the edges for a finished look.
  7. Locate eye holes by holding the mask up to the face of the user. Place the center circles of the pattern eyes in these locations. Cut out the circles using an X-Acto knife.
  8. Cut out all pattern pieces for the face. Lay the pattern pieces on the fleece and cut a rough swatch for each color. Adhere one side of fusible web to the WS of each of the colors of fleece. Transfer the patterns to the fusible web and cut out. Remove the backing paper from the web and iron the parts in place on the mask. Line up the eye holes with the holes cut in the black backing. Stitch close to the edges of each of the pieces to further secure. Trim any excess around the eye holes and add a tight zig zag stitch to finish.
  9. Cut a 13" length of elastic. Sew one end 1/2" from side of mask, on the back. Try the mask on the user to adjust the length of the elastic. Attach the other side.

Craft Hack Tips and Tricks:

  • Rotary cutter works best for straight line cuts. Scissors should be used for curved cuts.
