Even though the “customize my mask swap” didn’t get voted into fruition, I had this idea that I just couldn’t let go: use all my random scraps from making masks to make a meta-mask! Or maybe it’s a Franken-mask? Either way, here it is:
I started with some of my lining scraps sewn into a rectangle - then I started laying out and pinning scraps:
Once I had my base, it was same old, same old. Here’s a shot of the pattern (@Magpie’s of course) drawn onto the base to give you a sense of the backing (you can see I have lots of base leftover, too for future projects!):
Some side shots:
I admit I was worried that this put way too many holes in the mask for it to be useful, but it passed both the spray test and the candle test, so I think it’s ok. It’s fully lined and actually multiple layers thick in spots.
