The rules keep changing but the requirement to wear a mask or face covering seems to be increasing. I believe it is now mandatory in the UK to wear a mask if you are travelling on public transport and anywhere in public where social distancing is not possible.
My daughter, Kat, made herself a stylish face mask a few weeks ago so I asked her to send me the pattern. Yesterday, as it was a rainy day, I decided to make some. In the past I would have had plenty of old linen or fabric to play with but I have no such resource here in our new home. But in Kat’s room I found a bag of clothes earmarked for the charity shop and decided to use a red t-shirt and blue striped skirt to make my masks. For any fans of the Sewing Bee it was a cross between the pattern challenge and the transformation challenge.
Paul and I now have four stylish masks at our disposal in case we decide to venture out into the big, bad world.
