Well,,, more sewing time to make a few more masks...

just a bit of whimsy..

Unfortunately I can't machine embroider on the curved masks..

I have been making a few more masks for some people in our community...
I make both the rectangle masks and the curved masks.. and in the rectangle masks, I stitch in a casing pocket and insert a chennile pipe cleaner for over the bridge of the nose.

Keeping busy... hope I never run out of fabric! lol!

That looks great! Your community is very fortunate to have such a talented seamstress helping out. I like the addition of the pipe cleaner over the nose. I have found that if I keep my mask up high on my nose my sunglasses don't fog up. Keeping it there though is challenging and I do my best not to touch my face when adjusting it. The pipe cleaner solution would solve that problem.

Happy sewing & stay healthy!

I ran out of pipe cleaners so the last 2 pair of masks I made do not have pipe cleaners in them.. ,, but next time I make a trip to Walmart, I will see if they have any pipe cleaners in the Craft & sewing section.. oh, and 1/4" elastic as well...

I like my mask better without the pipe cleaner and I like the round elastic better than the ½ inch stuff; it's softer. I had to buy a hugh spool of it. PM me your address and I'll mail you some.

Grace, that is adorable! You could even make different colored lips so you can change your lipstick to match your outfit!

I think a cat mouth with whiskers or a Winnie the Pooh face. A rose in the teeth face. Oh, I could come up with tons of ideas but I don't embroider that well.

Love the cat mouth idea! That would be really cute with some cat ears, too.

At first I really liked that pattern but thinking about it later made me wonder if having a seam right infant of your nose and mouth is really a good idea....

I like it because it sits firml;y on your face and it is more stable than the other template. It also looks like it would be easier to breath through.
An individual preferance.

Cheers!!

I actually have made both,, and like both equally.. so I wear which ever one matches my mood or outfit! lol!
That being said, hubby likes the curved one better.. but he is a boy, so he doesn't count! lolol!
