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.

Applique Fun

Appliques and patches are a great way to add some flair to any clothing…perfect for a quick back-to-school project or gift idea.

Super easy temporary appliques have an adhesive backing.  Just place firmly for 20-25 seconds for an instant application and when you’re ready to wash your items, remove and return to the card and reapply afterwards.

Or use the iron-on versions for a more permanent look.  Set your iron to a dry heat on the lowest setting, place your applique and on the back use your heated iron to apply pressure for 20-25 seconds.  Allow to cool to properly set before wearing.
