Ambush Bug Mask - Costuming & Sewing - Finished!
Ambush Bug Mask: Finished!
Here the mask is modeled on the glass head that I have. To see more pictures of the process, click on the image!
I think it turned out pretty good considering I'd never:
- sewn spandex
- sewn thick trim
- made a mask
The mouth still needs to be cut open, but I wasn't sure how far to cut it, so I'll wait till Stuart tries it out.
I used this online tutorial about making a spandex mask with a collar. It's a little confusing, but it totally works out! Also, FREE!
Other key elements (from Jared Axelrod):
- 1" seam allowance
- zig-zag plus straight stitch
Hooray! Now back to work on my Omega Pin, as well as drawing some lumberjacks (for a soon-to-be-announced project).
