  • Breathe Easier with these DIY Masks

    In addition to social distancing, wearing cloth face masks out in public has been recommended to help slow the spread of COVID-19. These quick and cute projects will bring you pride while they keep the people around you safe.

    Breathe Easy - 8 Simple Sew and Appliqué Particle Mask and Cap Projects - eBook #36007737

    Wear your DIY masks with pride.

    According to the CDC, masks should 

    • fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
    • be secured with ties or ear loops
    • include multiple layers of fabric
    • allow for breathing without restriction
    • be able to be laundered and machine dried without damage or change to shape

    Our designers have been working on easy-to-make patterns for masks that fit the CDC recommendations. They are intended for your personal use, and won't take away from the supply of medical masks for healthcare workers. We are offering a free Tie-On Pleated Mask ePattern so you can outfit your family and/or friends.

    I decorated an Easter tree for my kids when they were tiny. It was a little 5’ live sweet gum tree in our front yard. I simply used a straight pin to melt holes in plastic Easter eggs, stuck paperclip hangers in the holes, and hung them on the tree. Fast forward twenty years…there’s still an Easter egg hanging in the top of that tree that I missed when I took the rest down…and the kids still talk about the year we had the Easter tree!

    What’s your favorite Easter story about your family? Please share…I had to promise my eldest daughter that I wouldn’t post a picture or tell the story about the time I made her wear an Easter hat…
