- 1/2 yard stretchy fabric (fleece, knit, spandex, or something similar work best)
1. Fold your fabric in half and place it on the floor. It only needs to be long enough to have room above your head and extend to your shoulders. Lay your head on the fabric so that your profile is centered on your doubled piece of fabric. Have someone trace your profile with a piece of chalk.
*For some reason I look like my nose has a huge crook in it and I have long chin hair. Lovely. Thanks to my husband for the profile drawing :)
2. Cut your fabric leaving two inches extra around the entire piece. You will have two pieces. If it looks like it will fit Big Foot, you're doing it right.
3. Place right sides together. Sew around the perimeter using 3/8" seam allowance. Leave an opening on the face front so you can see out of it.
*If you are using a stretchy knit or spandex, I would suggest using a ball point needle in your sewing machine.
4. Try the sock on over your head. Make any adjustments necessary. Using a piece of chalk, draw an outline of where you would like the openings to be on your face. This may differ depending on if you're making the sock for a ninja mask or more like a ski mask to rob a bank. Just kidding about the bank part. Don't use this tutorial for those purposes.
5. Cut out your face openings. Since you're using a knit, spandex, or fleece material, you don't need to worry about the edges unraveling. Turn the sock right side out and wear your new head sock! Who's the fairest of them all now?
Easier Than I Thought!
