Plague Masks

I forgot about making these their own post yesterday. But last week I had a lot of fun making a plague mask. I used the pattern on Suntree a-ok’s tumblr blog. The first one I made was the lemon and yellow one. I used a little fusible fleece so this one was softer. On the purple one I used fusible fleece and some interfacing. Which made it a little stiffer. It was also a bit harder to flip.

I also used my pikachu build a bear for a model so he looks super cool now.

I love these so much :slight_smile: Especially how the cheerful fabrics are juxtaposed against a mask with a rather dark history. Do you wear any of these out? That would be a sight to see lol.

I haven’t worn any out. But I think it would be fun to wear one out! And I picked the lemons just for that reason XD

Also, did you see that she’s researching the commodification of creative knowledge for her PhD, focusing on quilt patterns and designs? Wot?! What a cool person. I’m going to contact her.
