Today the new Batman Lego movie came out, and as the Wee Boy is a huuuuuuge fan, we decided to go see it right away! I didn’t think ahead about preparing something fun to wear for it, but luckily I had felt and about 30 minutes.
I found this pattern online- http://athousandphases.blogspot.com.au/2013/10/make-your-own-batman-mask.html but instead of craft foam, I machine-sewed together two layers of craft felt, because that’s what I had on hand. It worked just fine- the ears stand up and because I did edge stitching, it should hold up okay. I made one mask per kid. Also- I enlarged the template about 160%, if I remember correctly. Black elastic would have been cooler, but again, I happened to have white, so it had to suffice.
The movie was good! I’ll confess, though, that after waking up at 6:30, food and kid prep, morning school traffic duty, school drop-offs, my weekly volunteer gig, school pickups, grocery shopping, last-minute crafting, etc., I was pretty tired and actually slept on and off for a while during the middle.
Shhh, don’t tell the kids, and also please cross your fingers that they don’t ask me too many questions about the movie… 😉
