Making Faces -- A creative project

And the Finished Faces!!


This fun project lets you use your imagination to it’s fullest.  These are designed to be “Funky Faces” in any style you want.  Make them as zany as you desire.  They can represent a real person or be one of total fantasy.  You can include fabric or objects that have a relationship to the person or just make it as whacky as you want.  This is also a great way to use up those scraps sitting in a bag or in the plastic bin.


You don’t have to make the features look realistic.  They can be wonky.  Crazy lips, noses, eyes and ears all add to the whimsy of this project.  There is no right or wrong way to make these creations.  The only requirement is to have fun!


Maximum size – A rectangle no larger than 18” x 24”.  (If you make it much smaller, you’ll find yourself cutting “tiny” pieces)


The easiest way to create your masterpiece is by using raw edge applique that is fused to a background.  But you can use any method you want.
