More Mask Making

 Last night was spent making more Masks, only this time, I was teaching the amazing Young Women in my church how to make their own masks.   School is a few weeks out and they all need masks.   It was fun to see the different personalities come though in their picks of fabric.  A lot just wanted simple black, (it goes with everything!!!)  but some also picked some fun and funky ones :)

They all did such an amazing job!!!  For quite a few, this was their first introduction to a sewing machine and they really did great :)   The other young ladies got introduced to a sewing machine when I taught them how to make Charming Totes a few years back ;)    I just love that this allows me to pass sewing on to a new generation.    Thank heavens there are so many of us that know how to sew right now, I can't even begin to imagine how many homemade masks have been sewn in the last few months by all of you amazing sewers!!!  

Oh, and just in case you missed it, I added the link for this pattern on my Monday post, and will also share it here.   Link to the PDF Templates.   I have found this to be an awesome pattern for fit.   I just used 4 of the Part A Pattern and don't do the fitter pocket.  And I love using old T-shirt 1" strips that have been stretched and made into loops for the ears, it is so much softer than elastic.  And today, My plan is to make some masks for me ;)  

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Day!!!

Pin It!


  1. This sounds like it was a wonderful, educational, and useful YW activity. I suspect I belong to your same church. I served in YW for most of my married life. I love working with the youth!

  2. I'm going to check out the pattern you use. I was looking at fabric with the kids and my daughter wants black "because it goes with everything"

  3. Fabulous!! The YW look like they enjoyed the activity.


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
