Bunny Mask Glasses


Last year I designed these totally fun Bunny Mask Glasses for Easter!
This was a pattern from my old blog, so it was time to give it an update and get it moved over here so I could re-share it! I don't want anyone to miss out! But an update wouldn't really be complete without a new addition, right?! So I've also added a Sheep Mask pattern! Are you as excited as me???

Hold eye pieces together and sew three (smaller size) or four (larger size) touching stitches to join. Sew ears on 7 sts (smaller size) or 9 sts (larger size) from center (1st stitch would be the unsewn st after joining eye pieces).
Sew straps to side centers (2 sts).
Attach bow at base of ear.
Working on back side: Fold one chenille stick in half and glue to top of ear (on both ears). Take last chenille stick cut it in half; fold it in half and glue to bottom of ear so that the folded end is backing the 2nd round of hdc's of eye piece. Repeat on other side.
Trace eye pieces with pencil on cardboard. Cut out the eye pieces making sure the eye holes in the cardboard are slightly bigger than the crochet eye holes and that the outer edge is slightly smaller than the outer edge of the eye piece (so the cardboard doesn't show when attached). Glue the cardboard to the eye pieces so that they slightly overlap the bottom chenille sticks.




SHEEP FINISHING
Hold eye pieces together and sew three (smaller size) or four (larger size) touching stitches to join.
Attach fur over the top center of the eye piece, being careful not to block the eye holes.
Attach ears diagonal to the  lower sides of fur.
Sew straps to side centers (2 sts)
Trace eye pieces with pencil on cardboard. Cut out the eye pieces making sure the eye holes in the cardboard are slightly bigger than the crochet eye holes and that the outer edge is slightly smaller than the outer edge of the eye piece (so the cardboard doesn't show when attached). Glue the cardboard to the back of eye piece.

And presto, you're the cutest bunny (or sheep) ever!
