They turned out really pretty!
Also tried this one out, you have been very busy.
I think these are lovely. Anything to cover the nose and mouth is better than nothing at all.
Great work on all of these. Love Chris
Great job.......your friends will love you for these!
While these are pretty I don't think I would embroider on them. The less needle holes the better. I also am concerned about the center seam right where you will be inhaling and exhaling....
I understand as well as the rest of the world the need to protect ourselves. It is a shame we don't have effective simple mask to save lives. Saturday we had 20 deaths total, in my state. Today, March 23rd the total was 34. Tuesday 03-24-2020 is 46.
God bless you for your work effort.
Toog, the pattern called for the center seam, but I soon realized it was not a good idea. And tho the emb does compromise the outer layer, there is an inner layer of quilting fabric, and the 3M hvac filter between, These are not going to medical facility, but to my friends who don't sew. I'm relying on the 3M filter to make my offers worthwhile. And they say anything is better than nothing! I and my elderly friends will be hunkered down in our homes for most of this pandemic. We've only had 6 confirmed cases in my county so far--fingers crossed and prayers.
Stunning work done!!!!Awesome pattern
These look really great. I am totally impressed with the amount of work you got done in a short time.
love them who's pattern is this .I might make another one lol
I made just one for John and I Hugs xxx
I am going to add a layer of the hepa filter or hvac filter to the inside of the masks I have made from 2 layers of fabric.
Well done! What kind of fabric did you use? Can you breath comfortably?
I used 2 layers of good quilting cotton fabrics, but have just learned about using the 3M hvac filters for masks--supposedly two layers equals the N95??--the medical requirements for drs and nurses. I bought 2 wrong size last week--they will be used one layer with one layer of fabric. But they won't be washable for re-use, so I will donate to hosp.
OH! These will not have emb designs added as the needle holes would defeat the purpose.
good point and good to know!
