It seems like everyone who sews is making masks right now. I resisted as long as I could because
1) I have masks. I’ve been wearing masks for chemical smells for several years now,
2) If everyone else is making masks, then I don’t need to. There are plenty of places for people to get them, and
3) Because I wear masks, I know how difficult it is for them to fit properly and there is no one pattern that is one size fits all.
BUT, I caved and made one for my mom (which she won’t wear because even thought I followed a pattern, it doesn’t fit correctly). That was disappointing.
I tried again and made a couple for my godchildren. The experience of bringing them their masks was completely delightful. They put them on right away. Little A said, “Are those rockets? This is my FAVORITE MASK!”
Leave it to children to love the weird gifts you give them! ❤️
The last mask I made was for my husband since he’s going to be working in the nursery at church tomorrow. Knowing how much I like patterns and prints, he requested a solid color. 😭 I put some flexible wire across the top so it will fit snugly over his nose and he likes it!
Not sure if we’ll ever stop having masks as normal part of our lives. This virus has changed so much about how we live our lives. In the mean time I hope you all are staying safe and healthy!
