Why I Am Not Making Face Masks
The simple answer is I just don’t want to. It’s not where I want my business to go, I don’t like making them (and I have made a few for immediate family) and quite frankly all the different patterns and how they fit, deciding if I should add a pocket or a nose wire or not was stressing me out. So I’m just saying no.
Secondly, fabric that makes good leggings makes rubbish face masks. My clothes are made from organic cotton jersey. Jersey is terrible for masks because it’s made in a way that when you stretch it tiny holes appear in the weave - which isn’t great for something that’s meant to keep germs in or out.
I don’t use quilters cotton and I don’t want to buy in fabrics I wouldn’t usually use plus I don’t really like making them anyway so I’m going to leave making faces masks to other people.
However, if you do want a handmade face mask I do know lots of people making them so I can point you in their direction if you want - just ask!
