I cant tell you how many times I have heard the words " You are such a Martha Stewart" (haha) I just love crafting, diy, painting, sewing, and home decorating. It gives me great satisfaction to look around my house and say " I MADE THAT!"

DIY Felt Owl Masks

   Hey guys! While the kids are taking their nap, I wanted to share with you a cute project we made today! Felt owl masks. I saw Tatertots and Jello feature a cute little girl owl mask on Facebook from Sew Craft Create. I knew right away I could make the kids one! It didn't even cost a thing, I just used craps of felt and material I had on hand.

  First I made my mask out of paper to test out the size and where the eyes needed to be. I always fold my paper down the middle and trace half of the face. That way your mask is perfectly symmetrical! Here is what my paper pattern looked like.



  Next I just started cutting and layering pieces using iron-on No Sew. Once I liked the look I used my sewing machine to add the elastic, and a few decorative stitching details. Here is what I came up with!

Cole's Mask



Abby's Mask



  Here are a couple cute pictures of the kids playing with them! Abby's favorite thing about her mask is that it had make-up on. ha ha She is just too cute and so girlie!!!





  It only took about an hour to do both masks. They had a blast playing with them and I really enjoyed making them too! I hope you all have an AMAZING weekend! :)

* I finished the cabinets, now I just want to sew my new curtain and add a few accessories before the big reveal!!!
