I have been watching, on and off yesterday, the battle of the brits team tennis. It has been great to watch some of my favourite players having a play and smiling into the bargain. It is on all week and can be found on BBC red button and the LTA website.
The last two masks I made us, mine in particular was not correct. The nose bit kept turning down for some reason so I set to making another one.
The instructions require seams at the top before all the layers are flipped and joined at the bottom and sides. Somewhere in there, the nose clip has to be fitted. This is where I usually go wrong.
Anyhow, this time, I decided to oversew the edges rather than seam and flip - much better. Took me just an hour rather than the two or three I usually take.
How long you might ask!
Well, working out 3 layers and an internal nose clip usually results in one or two layers being the wrong way around, or the nose clip on the outside rather than the inside. Much unpicking and sewing takes place. Not this time. So much easier.
