Bunny Headband and Mask, 3rd Blogger Competition #1

Guess what…I have a little treat for you today/this month, and I am really excited about it! Are you ready for it? Eeeekkkk! Today, we are kicking off a brand Blogger Competition. Wahoooo! I have a few of these fabulous events scheduled this year, and I couldn’t be more thrilled about the competitors. We have some returning champs, some returning bloggers and some brand new peeps who have never heard about our friendly little competition until they received their invitation to compete! So fun right? So here is the low down…at the beginning of this year, I invited 3 amazing and super talented bloggers to compete this month in a Spring theme head to head competition. They all said YES! After I received word that they were in for little challenge, I picked out and sent them a package full of supplies and goodies from The Ribbon Retreat that they had to use in their project. They had NO idea what was being sent to them until their package arrived on their doorstep. Fun, fun stuff! After they opened their box of goodies, the games began and it was then up to them to create a super fun and super innovative project that you, our incredible readers, would LOVE! So for the next 3 Mondays, including today, I will post these competing Spring themed projects and on Monday, March 28th YOU, lovely readers, get to choose whose project you love the most and help crown our winner! I seriously can’t wait to see who wins!

I love this competition and it is so fun to see what my incredible blogger buddies come up with! So, without further ado…let’s meet our first competitor! Her name is Terra, and she blogs over at Mama Says Sew!

You are going to love her, and her fun and festive project! Good Luck Terra AND readers…enjoy our first project in our very first 2016 Blogger Competition! This is so exciting!


Hey everyone! I’m Terra and I blog over at Mama Says Sew (although lately, you can find me much more often on Instagram @mamasayssewblog). I am exited to be a part of this challenge!

When I got my crafting supplies, they really screamed Easter to me, so I decided to make a few Easter accessories for my girls.

I couldn’t decide if I wanted to make a bunny mask or a bunny ear headband, so I decided to go with both since there were plenty of goodies to choose from!

The mask ties in the back with some of the ribbon from the pink ribbon grab bag, which makes it easily adjustable for anyone who wants to wear it. It even worked for me!

I wanted to dress up the bunny ears a little, so I used some of the gorgeous flowers to make a flower garland on the headband.

All the supplies came from The Ribbon Retreat, except for the headband and the pink felt on the bunny headband ears and the bunny mask nose (although you can get them there-they just didn’t come in the package!)

Here’s how to make your own!
First, the mask.

Draw a pattern for your mask. I just traced another mask I had and altered it to look like a bunny rabbit.

Cut your mask out of felt. You want a double layer of the main mask part. I also cut out the nose and snout (I don’t think bunnies have a snout, but what else do you call it??), and I cut out the pink ear from some ribbon.

Glue on the pink ears and outline it in pom pom trim.

Cut some ribbon for the ties, and sandwich it between the two main mask pieces. Stitch around the outside of the mask.

Add the bunny nose pieces.

Using a washable fabric marker, draw on some whiskers and go over them in black thread. I just sewed with my machine. I started close to the nose, sewed to the end, and stopped with my needle in the fabric. Then I pivoted the fabric (with the needle still down) and sewed back the other way along my first stitching line. You can do each side of whiskers without cutting your thread. Just make sure to pivot with the needle in the fabric.

Then you can add some accessories to your mask.

Voila! Bunny mask done.

For the bunny ear headband, draw a pattern. I just free-handed mine. You’ll cut on the fold, and the folded area will wrap around the headband.

Cut two ears and two pink ear contrast pieces.

Glue on the ear contrast and outline it in the pompom trim. Note: only one side of the ear will have the pink contrast.

Wrap each ear around the headband and glue in place.

One ear done.

Once both ears are on, glue some flowers to the headband. You’ll want to glue them to the ears too. That will help the ears stand up straight instead of flopping all over the place.

And bunny ear headband done!

Terra….this is so SO cute! I love these Easter accessories. They are beautiful and bright and fresh and so perfect for this time of year! I have a little girl at my house that would absolutely LOVE sporting this fun mask and headband that are so innovative and a great way to start off our Blogger Competition! Wahoooo! Thank you for sharing your talent with us and for competing in this fun and friendly competition! Good Luck to you!

Are you in love with this sweet little mask and headband? Make sure you come back on Monday, March 28th to vote for it then! AND make sure to check in next Monday and the following Monday for the other two competing projects. They are super cute and super amazing as well! Ya’ll have a really hard job of picking just one project that you would like to be crowned as the champ! I am beyond relieved that I do not have to pick the winner, because this is going to be a tight race! Hehe!

Easter and Spring projects are some of my favorites because the color scheme is always so gorgeous. The pastel colors are bright and beautiful but still a little subdued as they help bring in a brand new season of new growth and the beginning of long sunny days! Here are a few more projects with lovely Spring colors with an Easter theme perfect for this time of year!
