A Simple Face Mask

Post by anniec »

I'm useless at anything practical, but even I managed to make this simple face mask:

How clever, and you could pop a filter into the heel bit if you wanted.

Well I have plenty of single socks(hoping that one day the other sock may appear) after putting them in the laundry basket.
Where do those missing socks go???

That sock mask is very clever. My husband has been fashioning masks from old t shirts this afternoon. I also bought a few washable masks from eBay a couple of weeks ago, as I felt that we were heading down the road to face coverings. I haven't actually worn one yet, but will do at my next scheduled Sainsbury shop next week. When I tried my masks on, I found it very uncomfortable, quite claustrophobic

Gill, I felt the same. I made one out of two layers of a cotton t-shirt but my son has also ordered us some which should arrive this week. I'm really not sure that I will use them because I felt as though I couldn't breathe properly when I tried the homemade cotton one on. I think I will end up pulling them on and off every 5 minutes just to breathe properly and that rather defeats the whole point.

We rarely use public transport and we wait till late afternoon to go to the supermarket when it is quieter so I'm hoping I might get by without one.

I’ll be Ignoring Government advise on just wearing face masks in enclosed spaces as I will wear one whenever I am out (when I start going out that is)…. rubber gloves and a bottle of hand gel is the way I’ll be going for the foreseeable future.

Once people see a few doing it the rest will follow…so be a leader not a follower and stay safe :thumbup:

Be prepared! Is my motto Mob….20 washable face masks, nine N95 face masks, fifty rubber gloves and three large bottles of hand gel….plus 120 near out of date tinned produce ;)

The face masks our son ordered for us arrived today. I look like I'm wearing a bra cup over my face and nose !!! I might just stick with the one I made - I just look like a bank robber in that one.

I wish I had chosen a better colour. This is not a good look.

A sort of Star Wars stormtrooper look about it, probably due to the colour!
