This year my daughter only needed a detail for Carnival, so I had the idea of making a cat mask and ears. Something easy but nice.
We need some felt, wadding, interlining, rubber band, a hairband and embroidery thread.
1- First print the templates (you can download them here) and draw them on the felt: two masks, two small triangles and four big triangles.
2- To make the ears start by sewing every small triangle on a big one. I did it using blanket stitch. You also may stick them. Next cut two big triangles of wadding and sew all the layers, as you see in the photo. Leave two openings at the coners of the ears base to introduce the hairband.
3- Then place the hairband and sew a few stitches so the ears are well attached.
4– Para el antifaz comenzamos decorándolo. Yo he bordado los bigotes y unas pestañas y he cosido unas lentejuelas, pero podéis hacer lo que querías, por ejemplo, adornarlo con rotuladores de tela y purpurina. Después cortamos una pieza de entretela con la forma del antifaz y cosemos todas las capas colocando en medio la cinta de goma que habremos cortado a la medida de la cabeza.
4- For the mask start decorating it. I embroidered the moustache and the eyelashes and sewed some sequins, but you can do what you prefer, for example, use fabric markers and glitter dust. Then cut a mask shaped piece of interlining and sew all the layers placing between the rubber band we previously will have cut the size of the head.
