I spent the afternoon aligning four sheets of pages printed from a PDF into two parts of a 3-D mask, and it comes with concentric lines for seven different sizes. I selected four of the sizes so far and taped and cut out pieces then made cardboard templates from each of them. This is the next phase of mask making, for people who have a larger nose and dislike the way standard masks fit. I'll make one in my size this evening, step by step with the video from the woman who designed the mask. She doesn't have print instructions, and while the general routine is understood, there are still steps that can't be neglected, so I'll follow along and write them out myself.
She has a great tip about using "pony beads," plastic or acrylic children's beads with a large hole to allow adjustable ear pieces and. Lots of good stuff in this video. The masks are evolving as people figure out ways to make them easier to wear and in some instances, easier to sew.
Trash day tomorrow so time to round up everything. Also to put more recycling stuff in the car to drop off. I'm trying to not let there be spillover from the front room and I don't need to save any more packing materials so when boxes or padded envelopes come now they are filed in trash or recycling. Small stuff, but it adds up quickly.
