Luchador Mask pattern

Some of you have asked for the pattern for Shelby's Luchador costume.

I made it myself, so it's fitted to Shelby's head, but if you've got a pug, boston terrier, or other flat nosed dog with a small-ish head, it's worth a try.

I didn't include the seam allowance, so you'd need to add that yourself.

It's worthwhile sewing a practice mask to test the placement of the eye holes.

As for the cape, it's just a rectangle with a half circle cut out for the neck. I didn't use a pattern. I bought the iron on letters from the sewing store, but I'm sure they're available at craft stores as well.

If you do use this pattern, please email me a picture of your dog! shelby at gopugyourself dot com. I'd love to see an army of little poochadors.

UPDATE Forgot to include the photo!

Too cute. I can't believe you found the time to make such a darling outfit for Shelby.

Hi Katherine,

I don't have the pants pattern anymore, and as I recall, they were kinda shoddy anyway. Shelby all but destroyed the felt boots just by walking around. (not my best work, for sure).

Hello Winnie,

I have a 1 yr old puggle named Enzo and he is going to be luchador for Halloween. May I ask you what type of material did you use and
what did you write on the back of Shelby's cape? This costume is adorable, I love it!
Thank you,
