My dad dated a woman when I was a pre-teen and she was the coolest. We stayed in touch a bit via Facebook over the years. She is a brilliant costume designer who immediately started sewing gorgeous masks and sending them to family and friends when the pandemic hit. She's since made and given away and donated thousands. She's still the coolest.
My mom made this mask.
I got this Covid mask at a garden centre, part of a desperate attempt to 'do something different' with my boyfriend in Surrey. Both just driving around trying to think of something to do other than ride bikes and walk around our local area. This is all I bought.
I got the mask on Etsy from a local vendor: Love By Moon.
I made this mask. In the spring, I unboxed the never-used sewing machine in my basement and made some masks using fabric from my collection of free t-shirts. It was my first time sewing in decades. Now, you can buy masks everywhere from Etsy shops to major retailers, which is good since the ones I made are fraying at the edges (as am I).
I got the mask at my local grocery store!
In her retirement, my mother-in-law picked up a part-time job as a seamstress. When COVID hit, she started sewing cloth masks for local hospitals near Buffalo, New York. She was sweet enough to find some unique fabric to make masks to my family as well. She even sewed pipe cleaners into them for a better fit around our noses.
I got this mask from a designer named "robecode“ in Germany.
Ordered it online from Resistance by Design, which donates to women's causes.
Got it from home and only wearing for challenge. I rarely walk outside the house.
My mask was made by my mum. She runs a sewing school and since lockdown has been doing a lot of voluntary work making masks for friends and family and sewing scrubs for health workers.
It was made for me by someone I dated over lockdown. Our first date was in a park the day before we were told to stay at home, and the next time we met up, she gave it to me.
