This is a seriously lame post for our monthly Pinterest Challenge, but I can’t help it. So sorry.
In October my girls will go to a Homeschool Masquerade Ball. This gave me the opportunity to make them each a mask. I do this because I ROCK at being a mom! However; my girls don’t think I rock all that much and told me not to make them a mask.
Not even this gorgeous thing. This was what I wanted to make for the Pinterest Challenge. I got a flat out NO from my girls and it busted my bubble. After getting over my tantrum, I decided to make the darn (which wasn’t the word I actually used) mask and give it to someone else! That’s because I still ROCK at being a mom with an attitude.
Turns out it was a great idea. My Pea #1 decided she liked the mask after I had gotten the eye parts done.
Let me first say I don’t like crocheting with black thread unless I am under a spotlight. And I want to say that the pattern, found here, was difficult for me to follow at times, so I winged it.
Here it is being blocked. It’s the only picture I have right now.
I have three reasons why this mask is not done.
- I waited to long to start it.
- After going to two different stores, I still don’t have a black ribbon for the ties. Who knew that Hobby Lobby and Wal-Mart ran out of black ribbon!
- My daughter spent the night at a friends house and I didn’t get a chance to have her hold it up for a picture.
The biggest problem I had with this mask, it that I had to size it down. Then I had to wing it in the area around above the nose. This isn’t my finest piece, but it is coming along nicely. We have a few accent decorations to add and then we’ll be done with it. I hope the daughter likes it and will enjoy wearing it at the party.
I’ll post the finished product in a couple of days. That is if I find some black ribbon.
See what the other Pin-up ladies have done.
