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.
