Animal Stick Masks are so easy to make in the hoop on your embroidery machine! They made great photo props or can be used for pretend play.
They can be made from inexpensive felt (no fraying) and you can even add a layer of stiff interfacing if desired for extra stability.
Add a dowel (or pencil!) into the channel on the side for holding and you’re ready for fun pictures!
No additional regular sewing machine stitching, hand stitching or adhesive required!
You can even purchase a variety of fun patterned felt at the craft store these days.
The felt is much more durable than paper photo props and will last through several parties/events.
Hint: Fleece will also work with these. You want to use a fabric that has some body to it and doesn’t fray.
