I had to get back to mask making. 🙁 Masks, it seems, get a little worn. I find that I wear the same mask over and other. It fits the best, stays on the best and is breathable. However, it is getting a little frayed around the edges.
For the first time in over a year, we are heading out on a trip. Grand Parlor is next week and we will attend. I don’t want to go without sufficient masks. Since I have been having issues with my skin, I don’t want to buy the paper masks in case they add to my problems. Also, I want us to have enough masks so we have fresh ones to wear every day.
I had about 7 that were either cut out or half made. I finished all of those. Some needed ripping out, but I just made them work. The time it takes to make a new mask doesn’t make ripping out really worth it.
I also made two dark ones for for the ‘Banquet’, so we look black tie-ish.
I plan to make more of the masks I know how to make even if people don’t think we need to wear masks anymore. I have enjoyed not getting the ‘flu and not getting a cold, and, of course, not getting COVID-19.
I started the Judy Coates Perez masks, but didn’t get very far. Cutting them out was exhausting and, since I had a larger number than I originally ordered from Spoonflower, there were a lot of them.
I haven’t made this pattern. While It looks straightforward, it also doesn’t seem very difficult. I didn’t want to get stuck on trying a new pattern when I needed to get several masks done. I will make these, but I’ll start fiddling with them after I have enough masks for our trip.
