This Halloween there will be no 'Trick or Treaters', although I have heard that some areas have organised special walks for people who have decorated their homes. I thought I would join in the fun in my own way and make a few special masks ...........
The Halloween fabric I bought was rather thin and I was worried that it would not be thick enough to block the virus. I decided to add an extra layer of 100% cotton fabric to be on the say side. I explained in a previous blog how I made my masks, the Halloween masks have four layers of fabric, one of which is a pocket for an additional disposable filter and a layer of Vilene interfacing, which acts as a washable filter.
I tried to cater for all tastes, dancing skeleton's anyone?
How do you feel about covering your face with spiders?
These cats are cute and I think I will still be wearing mine after Halloween.
I had a very small amount of the purple and orange cotton lining fabrics left over, so I made a mask each for two of my small nieces and nephews.
To jolly them up a little I stitched a felt cat to the orange mask and a skull to the purple one - I kept these felt stickers well away from the areas where they breath.
