Sorry for the delay in posting and reading posts - my days just disappear in a blur! I've been posting queued posts that I wrote a while ago when I found my blogging mojo - which I have found again now!
I've been busy making more masks over the past couple of months. I use the template and pattern from Sew Scrumptious, which seem to be working quite well! I have a bit of a love hate relationship with mask making. I weirdly enjoy it, and am quite chuffed at making them so neat and matching, and it's nice to have such quick finishes. However, they do take time and it's not quite the sort of thing I ever thought I'd be making. If we need them for much longer, I may start having to pattern match!
This batch is my most recent finish - some The Child masks for my father-in-law; some cows and sheep for my grandad-in-law and some hot pink masks for a teacher friend who only owned one:
And a close up of the pink masks, as well as the stunning thread I used to top stitch it! It's an Aurifil thread called Berrylicious, and has shades of pink and blue that really are my favourite. Now to find more excuses to use it:
I also made use of some leftover zebra fabric that you may recognise - husband really likes it and wanted a mask in it. Both types got top stitched in yet more Aurifil variegated thread - a green/yellow/red/white that I'm not too sure of the name of.
