I already make masks for my shop for the halloween season.
So I started with the basic pattern that I use for these masks
Traced it onto paper
Rounded the top to the shape of the bird I was making
Added the feathers to the top
Sketched the eye brows and make a pattern piece for them, I did the same thing for the beak piece
Cut them all out
Then cut the pieces out of felt in the corresponding colors
With yellow thread I sewed around the beak edge (not the edge that will attach to the mask)
with black thread I sewed the eyebrows into place on only one layer of red felt
Sew the two red layers together with red thread. Sew the elastic between the layers of felt at each edge by the eye. I used a piece that was 13.5". My traditional masks that are in my shop are two pieces of ribbon for the ties, but since this is for a birthday party I decided to use elastic
I also sewed around each eye at this step, and clip the eye holes to be a little bit larger/rounder
Pin the beak around the edge of the nose. this can be tricky, use as many pins as you need to to keep it in place. pin the center first then work down each side until it is all pinned
You can use this photo to create your own pattern. You may have to play with the size
And there you have it! It was quick and easy...now to make 20 more!
