Tutorial In the Hoop Frankenstein Mask

These in the hoop masks are super fun! You can create an easy DIY costume in a snap, so if you are a procrastinator like I am these sure come in handy. All of our masks come in two sizes so they are perfect for little ones and adults. These are made entirely in the hoop and just need a bit of elastic or ribbon to stay on. We use craft foam as the base and wouldn't suggest anything over 2mm thick.

Materials:
Craft Foam 2mm thick
Tear Away Stabilizer
Fabric: The skies the limit! We have used cotton, lame, craft felt and even canvas.
Elastic or Ribbon

 

Hoop the tear away stabilizer and sew step one. This is the die line for entire project. Place the foam over the die line. Cut it a bit larger than the die line. Next, place your fabric over the craft foam.

 

Now sew step two. This is the tack down for the entire project. This also stitches the die line for his hair. Cut the excess fabric around Frankenstein and in the eyes. Leave the foam in tact.

 

 

 

 

Lay the hair fabric over the hair die line then sew step three. This is the tack down stitch for the hair. Cut the fabric around the tack down as you would an applique.

 

 

 

Then sew step four, this is the satin stitching all around Frankenstein. Sew step five, this is the silver neck screws. Sew step six which is the red stitches on top his head. Then lift it from the tear away and peel back the craft foam. Leave the stabilizer on Frankenstein for extra support. And there you have it, an instant costume!
