it took me a while, but i finally sewed myself some masks! i haven’t had much need for a mask these past few months because i’ve rarely gone out, but as spaces start to open again, i decided it was time. i don’t like the fit of generic masks and i feel like i can’t breathe very well, so comfort also influenced me to sew my own. now that i think about, i don’t know why i was so resistant to making masks earlier in the pandemic because the process is really quite simple and relaxing, kind of like making a scrunchie. it’s a good way to use up my fabric scraps as well, and i have more thin elastic than i’ll ever need in my room so i’m all set up for it. i made my first mask, went to the store to get ice cream, and then came home and made two more – it was that enjoyable!
