Last Sunday I made my first face mask to wear to the grocery store. I made it quickly by hand without a pattern, and it worked okay.
Since then we’ve all been encouraged to wear them in public so I decided to make a few more, for me, my mom, and Bob. This time I would be more thoughtful about it, add an additional layer of fabric, and use the sewing machine. By the time I was working on mom’s I was starting to get the hang of it.
Then Benji showed up to help.
Don’t let that innocent look fool you. The boy’s a wild man.
So I tried to distract him with some thread
which worked for a while –
until it went the way of all small objects and ended up under the stove.
Still it gave me time to finish up mom’s face mask – the best one so far. Three layers of fabric instead of two. A few tucks and gathers for better coverage and fit.
By the way – I’ve been meaning to ask – does this face mask make me look fat?
Just kidding. Don’t answer that. 🙂
