New fabric! Octopi on my face! This mask makes me feel like a pirate. 🙂
I have been trying to be restrained about buying new fabric patterns, but I’ve run out of a few of my original fabrics, so I gave myself permission to replace those. I went with something ocean-y for summer — aren’t these great? I made these for myself because my children keep stealing my masks and losing them. One with ear elastics, for quickly taking on and off, one with head and neck elastics, for more comfort in longer wearing.
The small print trellis pattern one is ideal for masks; the larger repeat is tricky, because if I want to center the most interesting elements, I’d have to waste quite a lot of fabric. So I can’t guarantee that anyone ordering this would get the exact same layout as you see on mine, but I’d try to make sure there’d be at least something fun on it — a steampunk whale or an octopus or a funky seahorse.
Both designs (“the deep deep depths” and “Tethys trellis (small)” are by one of my favorite artists on Spoonflower, Cean Irminger. “By day I am an upstanding mosaic designer for New Ravenna Mosaics on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. By night I am a superdork drawing whatever weird things pop into my head. By morning I’m exhausted.”
