About a month ago I was lucky enough to guest post on WhipUp and I shared this super easy Bat Mask for the kiddos.  If you have a spare 30 minutes and want to whip one up, by all means, download this thing and get to it  Bat Mask Tutorial and Template

Materials:
1/4 yard felt. I try to use wool felt, but you can use acrylic.
Contrasting Thread
Coordinating Thread
12″ of 1/2″ elastic
Instructions
1. Print out the FREE Bat Mask Pattern Download here and cut out

2. Fold the felt piece so you have a double layer of felt to cut through. Pin the mask pattern to the felt to prevent shifting while cutting. To cut the eye, just fold that particular portion in half and make a slit to get your scissors thru, and then cut around the eye piece. Take your elastic and place it on the side of the opening closest to the flat side of the wing and secure with pins

3. Take your contrasting thread and begin stitching 1/8″ away from the raw edge. Stitch all the way around, being careful as you go around the points and curves. I found it useful to hand turn the needle around the tighter places.

4. Use your coordinating thread to stitch around the eyes.
