C-19 Mask Thread

Any recommendations?

Mask Selfies? Yeah why not.

I bought some, they fit my wife but not my big old beautiful face.

I need to find some larger ones.

Mumsie Nine has one with chickens and eggs on. It’s quite cute really.

I sewed masks for myself and all of my family. They have pocket inserts for filters (taken from vacuum cleaner bags).

Do you have a link to a pattern please? I might have a stab at making one

As I mentioned at the time, shortly after taking that pic I got ID’d buying wine. Apparently it makes me look like badass teenager (I’m 42) :rofl::thinking:🤷

I was going to say this but who am I kidding? Can barely sew a button on.

Here you go: https://www.craftpassion.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/face-mask-pattern-rev3.pdf

If you don’t have a printer just adjust on your screen until the measurement bar measures 2inches and then you’ll know they’re the right size and can just trace over them.

This is what they look like: Never too early for selfies

There’s a no-sew one here that looks nice and easy (requires a rectangle of fabric ~40x20cm and four hair bands).

Some lad I keep seeing around the corridors at work who is wearing one of these, with a pair of goggles

Bit extra, mate.
