Even if a masquerade ball isnt in your near future, these darling masques certainly can be! Located at the Red Heart site (Masquerade Fancy Mask), the download gives the crafter much more detail than can be provided on this splash page. There are also close up photos of each individual mask. These are definitely challenging and not for the Beginner. But what a bunch of projects to aspire to!
