Step 2: Get Creative

The fun part about this project is that your children can get as creative as they like. There isn’t a template, so it gives them creative freedom to create a cat or owl the way they see it. Cut a piece of cardboard to fit the size of your child’s face, mark where the eye holes will need to be made. (I used an empty cereal box).

Step 3: Cut out the Design

Cut out the mask shape and use your craft knife to cut out the eye holes — you can layer the cardboard to make the mask more three-dimensional.

Step 4: Choose the Fabrics

Decide what fabrics you want to use for the animal’s fur. I used a combination of plain recycled fleece and other patterned fabric remnants. Then start to add it piece by piece to the mask cut out.
