Certainly, we are living in very uncertain times. As a small online business, it is alarming how the shutdown for the novel Coronavirus (CoV-19) has affected us and everyone else. When life feels out of control for me, I have to do something. (For those that know me, I pretty much have to do something all of the time). However, when I saw that healthcare workers were asking for even homemade masks, I knew this was something I could do to help in a small way.
I dug into my stash of fabric to see what I had on hand. Much of what I have is for interior decorating and not suitable for masks, however this great snake print was, so I watched a few Your Tube videos and whipped up five of them.
I posted this picture on Facebook and was surprised at the number of requests I received from friends in the healthcare field, some with underlying health problems and some who just want the piece of mind. That encouraged me to make some more. On Saturday, I got more fabric and elastic from the local JoAnn Fabrics. Now, I have enough for 200 masks.
I've finally gotten a single person factory routine down now to pump out the sewing for these masks.
Here's a few:
All going to charity right now. Please let me know who needs one.
We're in this together!
