My friends and I plan on doing craft nights over the summer, and one of them really want to teach us how to sew. I've never sewn, but I would love to make a Mexican wrestling mask as my first attempt. Does anyone have a patter for one of these or maybe know where I can get one? I've done a google search, but haven't found anything useful.

How about using a baklava pattern? Or check the costume patterns and see which super hero has a full face mask. Use the mask as your basis then just copy the design you like.

At least that is the way I would approach the problem.

i've been thinking about this too and i figured that it's basically a hoodie, but backwards with holes for the eyes, nose and mouth... right? i mean, it seems like that would work, no?...

Well, a hoodie would be a good idea, but turning it backward, you'd have that seam down the middle wouldn't you? Why not just make a hoodie, then sew a circle of fabric to the front as the mask part?

Wow, I was just thinking about this today and here is a post about it!  I am thinking about buying one the masks from this website http://www.collectiblestop.com/masks-md.htm (cheap-o) and splitting it up for the pattern.  If I do, I'll make a tutorial!  I really want to make a custom mask with whiskers and long fringe in the back!

My husband (the real wrestling fan) did some investigating and found some sites that are great help.

Hope everyone makes one and post a picture!  I'm going to design mine today!
