As long as we need to wear face masks, I like to have a deep inventory. I need fresh ones – doing laundry is not my favorite quarantine activity when the studio beckons. So I need lots of backups. And on the days I need to go out, I like to have choices that make me happy.
After learning How to Make a Fitted Face Mask from a paper pattern, I was so excited to find a shortcut to the process! Creative Grids has come out with a Mask Cutting Template for fitted face masks, designed for rotary cutting and eliminating the pattern tracing and scissor cutting steps. The template makes masks in three sizes. In addition, the packaging includes clear instructions – bonus!
So come along as I try the Creative Grids template for the first time. With the ruler’s clear markings and non slip fabric grips, I finished the first fitted face mask in just 30 minutes using the manufacturer’s instructions.
