Another Wednesday ‘in lockdown’ and this was on my table yesterday…
Yep, I started making facemasks (recognize that fabric Jan?) for myself and my family. We are told that we don’t need to wear masks in the Netherlands, keeping social distance to protect yourself is enough. Wearing a mask could give you the idea that you are safe, but it really isn’t. Keeping your distance is.
OK, I understand, but still I think when society opens up a little more, the people will be asked to wear a facemask to protect the others. So I thought it’s never a bad thing to sew a few – and if we don’t have to use them after all, it still is a fun project to work on and keeps me off the street 😀
I found the free pattern via a friend on Facebook, this mask is really snug (with wire over the bridge of the nose) and has a pocket for a filter (apparently you can use chopped up hoover bags or dried baby wipes….) The pattern is HERE for anyone else who fancies a go (and the video tutorial with the pattern is really clear and helpful!)
And that’s it for now dear ones. After all the sewing I feel the urge to dip my hands in ink and paint today. Have a nice day y’all, do something nice AT HOME and stay safe!
