When I made my face mask, I inserted a padded thin metal clip to hold the mask tightly against my nose. Shopping this week and wearing it was unusually uncomfortable. It had decided to wind itself into a loop with a sharp bit of one end sticking out.
Whilst in a shop, I purchased a ready made (cheap) pair and wore one to finish off shopping in another shop. Utter rubbish. It kept falling down, was generally too slack around my ears, leaving gaps at both edges. I shall keep it for when I have my hair done, and will then throw it away as it will be covered in hair. The other one will stay in the car for an emergency.
I am sewing this week so shall prepare another nose bit and attach to my home made mask. I shall make myself a new one sometime as well. Plans are also afoot to make DGD another dress and Ruby two new covers for the cushion in her bed.
What fun, its lovely making things for the grands.ReplyDelete
Certainly is although no more summer dresses probably for now. Might do trousers for winter when she will be crawling.Delete
It sounds like a busy sewing week ahead of you. I have three different kinds of mask in the car ready for any eventuality, two disposable and one washable ... although it seems kind of thin to me.ReplyDelete
My home made one is very comfortable and I can talk without it getting in my mouth.Delete
I've made a narrow pocket for that nose bit. I can remove my piece of wire when I wash masks so I don't have to worry about it to get into my washimg machine. It takes hardly any time to sew, but makes everything so much easier.ReplyDelete
My clip is completely sewn into a pocket so there is no chance of it coming out in the wash. I have changed what I use so hopefully it will be better.Delete
