You do not need to have a special dress for the occasion, a very simple one will do, if you have a beautiful mask. If you have a costume or dress already you should choose the colors for your mask to match your dress. We offer three styles of masks: the Princess Mask, the Fantasy Mask and the Butterfly Mask. But the possibilities are limitless. The same design embroidered in a different color looks absolutely different !
Step One: Choose any design. Hoop a piece of organza or cut-away stabilizer with iron-on tear-away stabilizer and fulfill the embroidery. If you use metallic threads, do not forget to use special needles!
Step Two: Trim all the jump stitches.
Step Three: Tear away the excess tear-away stabilizer...
Step Four: Insert elastic thread into the two embroidered round eyelets. You can either first punch a hole, or simply thread the cord through a needle and pass that through the eyelet. You can decorate a ready mask with beads, or cover it with a thin layer of glitter-paint.
Step Five: Your mask is ready! Read on for some more examples.
On the photos below you can see how differently the same design looks in different colors.
This the same mask as above but with yellow instead of the dark peach.
Yet another version. This elegant black mask was embroidered on black velvet. Only the outline of the design is embroidered with gold metallic thread; the remaining surface of the mask is fabric.
Here are photos of other designs. Do not limit yourself to the offered colors, choose the colors you like best!
