We’re living in some awfully interesting times right now, between a global pandemic, an election year, and economic turmoil. I came up with some ideas on how to make masks and figured I’d share them if you’d like to make your own. There are descriptions on each picture as to what I was doing
I made this pattern with a paper towel on a mold of my face
Because the pattern is made of paper towel, I can see the pattern of the fabric through it and make design choices accordingly
Once you have your pieces cut, stitch the nose and chin pieces down and trim to the points
cut excess fabric and press your seams
Stitch lining and fashion fabric right sides together
Hem the edge, add the straps
Struggle just a little
Wear as festive hat
Hide Surprises in the pouch!
Remember what the surprise was
Sew in ties with elastic
Use a neutral backing so you know which side is the inside
I hope you enjoy this little tidbit, I had fun making the masks. If you want to join in while I make some of these things, join me on Twitch.tv/grantscovel for twice-weekly streams of crafting and other fun!
