HOMEMADE MASKS FOR HEROES
For the next 30 days, I'll be taking a break from posting recipes, and spending my time making FABRIC MASKS FOR HEROES! Not that I won't be cooking and baking - my family would be so sad! But with two daughters that are nurses working the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis, my time is better spent in front of my sewing machine making masks for medical personnel and their families.
For those of you that are able to, I urge you to help make as many fabric masks as you can - the need is SO GREAT! I'm happy to share the patterns for all sizes (Mens, Ladies/Teenager, Child (ages 7-12) and Small Child (ages 3-6) - just let me know! And if you aren't able to create, PLEASE HELP KEEP OUR MEDICAL STAFF AND THEIR FAMILIES SAFE by wearing a mask and keeping your social distance while in public!
UPDATE: Over 200 masks made, contributed and distributed to medical staff - triple layer (with a pocket for a filter) and stainless steel nose bands. I've now switched over to making fabric masks for family, friends and others. It looks like we'll be wearing masks well into the end of the year, so we might as well have fun wearing beautiful and FUN masks - especially for the little ones!
My Mom was quite the seamstress, and taught her daughters well. I'd forgotten how much fun it was picking out fabric - although there are now huge shortages of cotton fabric, elastic and even thread.
I want to give a shout out to my sweet sister-in-law Tania Benesh for sending wonderful cotton quilting fabric and elastic to help the cause! Also special thanks for April Roy for sending fabric and elastic! It is getting harder and harder to find supplies, and the need is so great!
PLEASE STAY SAFE! AND REMEMBER, MASK ON!
