Cowabunga Dude!

I recently got a request from a friend. She asked if I could make her three year old a Mutant Ninja Turtle mask. As I have mentioned before, I love a challenge. I looked around for the four needed colors. Seeing I had at least two of the four colors on hand, I took on the task. The movie will be in theaters on August the 8th and these will be great to wear.

After digging around on the internet for ways to make these cute things, I got creative, and accomplished them. They are so darn cute. One size fits all so the whole family can wear them. I think wearing them to Wal-Mart would be a blast. Don't you?

Some of the original TMNT's cartoons started back in 1987. That's been 28 years ago. Which means most parents of little ones of today are enjoying bringing it back and can share the same enthusiasm. Personally, I never got into the fad. I just remember how they were in stores and dress up everywhere like today.

Here is the trailer for the 2014 movie.

If you can crochet, here is the pattern that inspired me. If you can not crochet and you would love to have some of these, you can get them from my Etsy shop.

What I found the most interesting about making these is "Killing" the acrylic. When I finished a mask, it would curl. I placed a wet towel on top of the finished mask and iron over it. It gave the crochet a soft silky feel that does not roll up. Its like magic to me.

These were really fun to make. I cant wait to see pictures of my friends little guy wearing these soon.
Speaking of little guy, Im sitting here now waiting on the arrival of my nephew. He will be here tonight or tomorrow.  Maybe I can share him with you all on my next post.
