I know, I know… It’s kind of morbid. But I think a little gallows humor should be forgiven considering the current situation.
I got the template from Wintercroft and started out with paper masks:
But then I had the idea to try leather instead, which worked surprisingly well (the eyes are sunglasses, lol)
And since this worked out so nicely, I upped the ante today and created this awesome steampunk-style mask with a lot of rivets and the stitches on the outside:
I’ve learned a lot from making this one, and I know where to improve the next time… Sadly, I’m all out of rivets and leather thread now, but more is on the way.
If you want a mask like this, please feel free to hit me up!

Sewing these guys by hand turned out to be more of a pain in the ass than I anticipated, but it was so much fun, and I think they turned out alright 🙂
They are quite easy to make, and if you want to give it a try, you can find the pattern (and some other very cute ones) here: https://cholyknight.com/plushies
