    I'd recommend Wanderers by Chuck Wendig as your next book. And there are other post-apocalyptic books I read last year but can't remember the names...they were really good, too. That's a favorite...

    I finally received the many different colored spools of 1/2 inch ribbon I ordered. Adding a nose strip is a bit time consuming but I think with practice I'll get better and faster...

    24719

    My aunt from South Dakota sent me 5 pounds of fabric. These are the first 2 masks I made from it. I like the bandana mask. Seems kind of ironic.

    It doesn't matter how the fabric is placed regarding right and wrong side when cutting the fabric because the pattern is symmetrical.

    Here's how I added a filter layer to the mask. The high-res yellow is cut from a quick dry t-shirt. I'm using this as the filter layer. I will tack the filter layer to each piece of blue fabric...

    The mask pattern is half face front and back with middle fold making the bottom of the mask. If you want a two color mask, your right side will be one color and your left side will be another color...

    Some older friends have asked me about sewing filters into their masks. Tonight I tackled it. I sewed 4 masks for them and I put quick dry t-shirt as filter in between the layers. What I did was...

    Here is a really funny video about making face masks.

    Just make sure you go to the bathroom before you watch it.

    I made 14 masks tonight with t-shirt yarn ear loops. These will be given out tomorrow to friends who will give them to their friends. And I made one extra for myself and made use of leftover...

    I've now made about 100 of these and I made over 100 of the pleated. These are by far easier and faster to make. I like the fit of these better, too.

    I have to say I think this mask pattern is genius. Last night after work I easily made 20 masks. Today I cut fabric and made a kids sized mask in less than 10 minutes. I've made 2 extra sizes of...

    Great video! Thanks for creating it. I'm not sure my cats would be any more enthusiastic than your is about a face mask.

    I think I've made the same amount of masks using my pattern tweak as I made without it using the TBMask V1 pattern. I'm not sure my tweak really makes a difference.

    This is what I meant by the tweak. See the gap I left on the left side for turning it inside out?

    Pattern tweak suggestion here. I don't have a printer or fancy software handy at the moment but I have pen, colored pencil and paper towel. The last bit of sewing before turning the mask right side...

    I know you didn't ask me...but I'll tell you what I'm using which is 7 inch (1/4 inch wide) flat elastic for each strap. I'm going to be running out of elastic soon so I ordered some 1/8 inch shock...

    This happened to you, too? I was wondering who, if anyone else had this experience. It happened to me 2 Fridays ago. But I was given a time slot the following Tuesday. Now I've locked in a weekly...

    In regards to cutting the fabric for the TBMask V1, it's easier to just use half of the pattern on a fold of several layers of fabric, kind of like one would do when cutting out a shirt pattern. I...

    Boo! I hope I didn't scare you! Don't mind what looks like my quadruple chin, please.

    I made this mask rather quickly, although not as fast as Tom made his in the video but much, much...

    Oryx, my sewing assistant, is one of the many reasons I tell people to wash their masks before wearing them. Really they should do that anyway. But if they don't and they're allergic to...

    I've seen people in NYC wearing eye masks over their nose/mouths. People are being really creative for masks!
