Made these 10 masks for a friendís sister today. This was after I sent packages containing 35 masks to my nieces the beginning of the week. Those were made from duck cloth and were more difficult to sew. I think I need a break for a few days.

A local nurse started a Facebook page to coordinate volunteer crafters and hospital needs. She posted the instructions. I believe itís one of a few that is on Joannís web page.

only 4 today. I did 3 in one style and then made a 4th in another style. I don't work straight through. I kept getting distracted. They are for my son who lives on his own. I'll make some for us starting tomorrow.

Wow! How generous of you! Youíve been busy! Great job!

If I had a sewing machine Iíd have made some, too. Fortunately, I have several friends who have started making heaps of them, as well. They generously offered to send me some so I, too, am waiting for them to arrive in the mail, soon.

I just finished up my ten today. I am donating them to my relative's office members. They don't need the N-95 ones. Mine turned out fairly well, though I had to draft an old sheet into service because my stash is mostly FQ and I needed 40" of binding on the top and bottom edges. I didn't want to piece all of it from FQ because those seams can be a pain on my little BL Molly. I did change the needle so it would be easier. I do think it helped. I hope I don't have to do many more. I found it to be a tedious project. I want to get back to making fun things I like.

I made several for a friend and her family today. And I'm making more to donate. It is getting a bit tedious, but I'm getting faster!

Great Tutorial

This tutorial was easy to follow. Pleats were easy to make. She also had a tutorial for making masks with ties. Her YouTube video was great.

Thanks. I was trying to figure out if bias or straight cut would work best. I will try it across the width for this batch I've got going.

Straight of grain works - that's what I've been doing.
