Hi Sarah, if you embroider on a piece of fabric, you could always add it as a loose piece over your original mask. That way you should still have the protection from your base mask. Hugs from Maureen
OMG I have forgotten about this site!!!!
I don't know if it's true or not so you can research it if you want, but I read in a couple of places that the more holes you put in your mask, i.e. designs, the less effective it is at protecting the wearer.
They certainly are "cuter" dressed up though, aren't they?
Hi Jerrilyn, I think you have read correctly. I have also read that masks are better than no mask at all. All my masks have the three layers. There are a lot of pros and cons regarding the wearing of masks. Stay safe
These masks do not protect the person who wears it. It protects other people from you. Since you can spread the virus and not even know you have it, by wearing a mask keeps your loved ones and others safe from you in case you are contageous and have no symptoms.
There are a lot of cute masks around with different and funny designs. I bought a shark's open mouth one, but don't know if I'll actually make it, but it is interesting.
It's best NOT to embroider unless you use a filter lining. Embroidering makes too many holes in the mask fabric.
