In May I made myself a couple of face masks in case we had to start wearing them in public. Which actually became a thing. I was quite pleased with them, and I have been wearing them when out and about, but I have to say they are a little annoying when you need to pop in somewhere quickly as you have to stop to tie them on (and you need both hands), and they are a little hard to breath in.
So I had a look for a different sort of pattern and came across the Olson face mask pattern. The beauty of this design is it uses hair bands round the ears so I didn't have to find/buy any elastic or make more ties for round the head.
Also the pattern and video are so easy to follow it took no time as all to make both masks.
I've spent most of the morning wearing mine - so many errands! And it was really comfortable and easy to breath in, although my ears did get tired after a while.
So now I have even more choice about what mask to wear depending on what I'm doing and where I'm going. Plus this is such an easy design to make I can easily make myself more, if I need to wear one more often than I am at the moment.
Mine is made from old pyjama bottoms while 'im outdoors' is made from off cuts from the t-shirt I made a while ago. (and yes I've had a hair cut - love it so short!)
