Felt Superhero Mask Templates

Evan and Audrey’s birthdays are coming up, and since they are only a week apart, we just have combined parties for now. This year’s chosen theme is Superheroes and Princesses! I decided that the boys are going to get superhero masks, and the girls are going to get princess crowns that you can see here.  So here are the felt superhero masks that I came up with.  You can even glue them if you don’t have a sewing machine or use craft foam or paper if you don’t like the felt look.  I made them each with at least two layers of fabric so they don’t flop around.  And because I want you to be able to make them too, I have free felt superhero mask templates for you to use.

Felt Superhero Mask Templates

To make these superhero masks you will need:

  • felt (red, blue, white, yellow, green, black, gray, and ivory)
  • thread
  • 3/4 inch elastic
  • free superhero mask patterns

First, cut out your superhero mask templates.  Cut two of the overall shape in the main color.  Next, cut out any details (letter A, hair, etc.) then sew them to just the top layer.  For the Spiderman and Thor masks, I just cut up the template and marked the fabric as I went to sew all the lines in the right places.  I just used some black thread the a regular stitch on my machine.  Sorry about the bad lighting.

Next, cut your elastic to be about 14 inches long.  Pin the two layers together, sandwiching (and pinning) about an inch or so of the elastic in the middle on each side.

Now sew around the whole outer edge of the mask and eyes with thread that matches the fabric.  Trim it up and you are done.  BE CAREFUL not to cut the elastic while you are trimming!!!  I did it THREE times! UGH! Here is the finished front.

And here is the finished back.  More sturdy with two layers and less scratchy stitching against the kid’s faces.

And of course Evan was SO happy to pose for the camera.  He thought this picture was hilarious “I’m sad that I’m Iron Man.”

Audrey, on the other hand, was more than willing to cheese it up for me and be Spidergirl.

Thank you for the templates!!! I used basting spray to hold the two layers together before cutting. Then just opened the sides a little to insert the elastic. Worked great!

Oh my goodness, these are so cute! I was lazy and just used the glue gun to put them together and used pen and sharpie for the accents, but they still turned out cute. My kids (and my husband and I) will have a lot of fun with them! Thanks so much for sharing your patterns!

Thank you so much for the great tutorial and templates! I’ve used your template a few times now and it has ALWAYS been a hit. And you’re right, adults want to be superheroes too!

I can’t seem to get them to print. I just wasted a ton of ink by printing a big black square. Help PLEASE.

Hi, thanks for the templates. I have a question. You mentioned cutting the elastic at 14". The child's head that I am making this for measures 20". Do you think 14" will be too tight. Unfortunately, she lives out of state so I can't just try it on her. Any suggestions?

You have to take into account the size of the mask as well, so I don't think that would be too tight. I'm able to squeeze them over my big head. They are tight, but still wearable.
