With all the kids going back to school in a few weeks, it was time to get busy on some masks making. They will be wearing masks while they are at school, so I wanted them to have enough to get them through the week. So the last few days has been a mask making party!!!!
This is a mask pattern from Barbara. I am not sure where she got it from, but I just love it!! Here is the Link to the PDF Templates.
(I just used 4 of the Part A Pattern and didn't bother with the filter pocket :) They are super easy to sew and the fit is great!! The kids found this pattern the most comfortable of the few that we have tried, so it was a winner of school masks.
And this party consisted of a lot of assembly line!!! Seriously, assembly line mask making is the only way to go. We made 25 masks, and they are so much easier to crank out when you do the same step over and over, rather than making each mask individually. And it was fun to have us all working as everyone had assigned jobs whether it was pressing, clipping, serging, or sewing, which make it go really fast!!!!
Don't they look so fun laid out in a line!!! I let my kiddo's go through my stash to pick fabrics. They quickly found that they really liked the hand of the Art Gallery Fabrics
against their faces as it is so soft. I was grateful for that, as it was easier to just go through my Art Gallery stash, then having them raid my entire stash. (they don't always keep things folded and neat, ha ha ha!!!)
So now we are all set for Back to School!!! Although, I am sure there will be much, much, much more mask making going on. Got lots of family and friends that are going back to school as well ;) Luckily, it feels like I could make these in my sleep already, so we will crank them out in no time!!
I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!!
