3 Strap Options For DIY Face Masks

3 Strap Options For DIY Face Masks

In this blog post I will show you 3 different ways to make straps that you can use for a DIY face mask: bias tape straps, elastic straps and T Shirt straps.

Quilting Knit Fabric

If knits intimidate you, you’re not alone. Knits are lovely to wear because they stretch and conform to the body without constraining, and when used in a quilt they are especially soft and cozy; but that same quality can make them difficult to manage under the sewing machine foot. Fear not, with a few well chosen tools and some preparation, you can successfully quilt with knits.

Triangle Open-Wide Pouch

Today I have a project to use Madam Sew’s triangle templates. I didn’t have time to make an actual quilt, but I wanted at least a small project to get a taste; I’m constantly in need of good project bags for my knitting and crochet projects, so I figured a pretty open-wide pouch would be great.
