Fun With Felt

Let imaginations run wild with these cute felt Deer, Fox and Raccoon mask patterns.

Gather the materials you will need for this project.

Step 1:

Cut out all the shapes from the pattern. Pin your paper outlines to the appropriate colour felt and cut around.

Step 2:

Layer and glue the pieces of felt on top of one another. Using the picture reference as a guide.

Step 3:

To tie the mask, you will need to measure out approximately two 15” pieces of ribbon. Glue each piece (on the back side) near the edge of the mask, around where the middle of the eye cut outs are. Once all your glue has dried, try your new felt mask on! If the ribbon is too long after tying a bow, cut off any excess.

Make a quick, last minute DIY greeting card for a holiday party host, a neighbour or that special someone.  It’s a simple no-sew project that the kids can help with … perfect for your new favourite holiday fabric.

Featured Fabric: Christmas Elegance (#0111345 | 100% cotton | Width 112cm)

What you need:

  • Blank card/envelope set or cardstock
  • Fabric of your choice
  • Silhouette image
  • Iron
  • Scissors
  • HeatnBond Ultrahold (Item#3041600F)
  • Optional: Trim, sequins, ribbon & glue

For this project we are creating a greeting card, but the same steps can be used to create gift tags or jazz up a plain gift bag.

What you do:

Download tree silhouette image here.

Pre-heat dry iron to silk setting. Cut your material and section of HeatnBond to match the size of your silhouette image.

Place HeatnBond Ultrahold paper side up on wrong side of material. Glide iron across paper side of HeatnBond Ultrahold lightly for 1-2 seconds. Allow material to cool. Trace the silhouette image onto the paper side of the HeatnBond Ultrahold and cutout.

Peel off paper backing. Adhesive should appear milky in colour. Note: shiny clear adhesive is a sign of overheating which will cause an insufficient bond, at which point you’ll need to reapply HeatnBond Ultrahold.

Place material right side up in desired position on card and iron for 4-6 seconds (Note: adjust ironing time for heavier materials/using several layers).  Remove any adhesive from your warm iron easily with a dry cloth.

Once cooled, now it’s time to add flare to your card. Get creative with ribbon, trim, sequins or fabric embellishments!
