There’s a red cardinal who has become my friend. He let me watch him and sang/spoke, so now I know what their song is. There used to be a female who watched me through my kitchen window. They inspired this bird mask.


Masked balls, Mardi Gras, Halloween, cosplay, this imaginative mask will fit many imaginative occasions. It lends itself to embellishment and many colors.


The smaller, child size, makes a lovely neckpiece as well as a mask.


The pattern includes a recipe for homemade fiber stiffener, as an alternative to commercial products.
