Scarlet LOVES The Powerpuff Girls, so when we found out Hulu is now the only place to find the full classic animated series, we got excited. The Powerpuff Girls were the first cartoon I can remember where the girls were the heroines – bubbly and cute, but also total badasses. I love Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles.
So, The Powerpuff Girls have to save the world and still get home by bedtime. That’s a tall order, but I like all things that encourage going to bed at bedtime. We thought we would make some cute little no-sew sleep masks that your little girls and boys can wear when it’s time to tuck in for the night. These are easy-peasy to make together; get the full tutorial after the jump…
First you want to cut your felt circles. The best way to do this is with a circle cutter. This is the best $8 you’ll ever spend if you love crafting: OLFA Compass Circle Cutter! For each mask you’ll need:
2 white circles 1 3/4″ in diameter
2 color circles 1 1/2″ in diameter
2 black circles 1 1/4″ in diameter
2 white circles 3/4″ in diameter
Then you’ll also need a rectangle of white felt 1″ X 3/4″
You’ll want some 3/4″ thick elastic, measured around your child’s head and add an inch. About 13-15″ is a pretty standard kid head size.
And you’ll need a hot glue gun.
So here’s your circles:
Glue the colored circle to the white circle.
Glue the black circle on top.
Add your white circle.
Now glue each eye (make sure they’re both looking the same direction) to the rectangular strip towards the top (where your mask will bridge the nose).
Glue your elastic to each side of the mask aligned with the height of your center strip. Make sure it isn’t twisted!
Give it to a kid if when they are done saving the world and are ready for bed.
Find out more about The Powerpuff Girls NOW Streaming Only On Hulu
As one of Cartoon Network’s most enduring original series, the initial run of The Powerpuff Girls, created by Craig McCracken, premiered in 1998 and quickly became a global phenomenon. Since its premiere, the series earned two Emmy® Awards along with five nominations and countless animation honors throughout its 80 episodes.
Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup’s mission in life alternate between going to school, fighting crime, winning at hopscotch and saving the world before bedtime. The Powerpuff Girls are frequently called upon by the town’s mayor to help fight nearby criminals using their powers. While their differences cause them to squabble and tease, their individual strengths combined always lead them to victory. They rely on teamwork, trust, and friendship to thwart evil (in the most adorable way).
