Back to School

 Hello there,

I hope everyone is doing great. Here my sons have started going to school and I'm worried. I keep nagging them to keep their mask on. I sent a few face masks, hand sanitizer, and sanitizer wet wipes. The school sent videos to us, parents, on how they're doing the Covid-19 protocols in school, and it looked pretty convincing for us. But as parents (or moms) we can't help to be worried, right? I have to constantly remind them to keep their mask on, not to touch their face, to change the mask when it gets dirty, not to share their tiffin and water, etc.




Now that the boys are going to go regularly, I thought I'll make a variety of face mask style for them. I made them try a different style and my younger one said ok ok (reminder: never ask your teen when they're playing online games) but my elder son still prefers the Trio Face Mask. He finds it easier to keep it on for a long period as it doesn't stick to his face. 






I made the plaid face mask for him last month and he's been wearing it always. The plaid fabric is suit material, wool mix fabric, and lined with cotton poplin. The plain fabric is quite stiff, so it stands out, not floppy. 
My younger one also prefers the Trio Face Mask and the 3D face mask, even though I send the pleated mask too but he will only wear those 2 masks. 




Anyway, I got another Quilts Japan magazine last week and I tried the face mask pattern in the book. I quite like it. I called it a Kpop style. It's quite fitted into your face, as like other Japanese face masks. I guess because the Japanese are generally don't talk so much in public places, so this kind of mask is perfect. But I really love the look of it when worn.

Well, getting back to new normal is not an easy transition, but life must go on. We must be disciplined to maintain the Covid Protocol prescribed by the government and the scientist. They said it takes 3 weeks to adapt to the new habit. Now, the toughest part to get the boys to go straight to the bathroom when they come back from school. I guess children just love to annoy their mom! 



I hope with the vaccination is now being conducted, we can see the end of this Pandemic. Please keep your mask on and avoid crowded places as much as you can. 

Take care & stay safe!

Sunday Stash - Fun Fabric Bundles and Project Ideas



I've been busy making a few fun fabric bundles again for the shop. Most of them are one of a kind bundle, which means only 1 bundle is available. I really love creating bundles but my time is limited and being a solopreneur doing 101 things, I feel a bit overwhelmed sometimes :)


This time mostly I made fat 8 bundles and a few fat quarter bundles as well. Check out below some of the bundles that I already put up in my Etsy Shop.

If you just started your sewing or quilting journey, a fabric bundle is a good start. You can make many things from bundles. I made a few face masks and pouches and of course a few quilts too.

I made this pouch and the coaster too. I shared the tutorial for the pouch in my last post or you can see it on my Youtube Channel.



Or you can practice making fabric lanyard.







Thank you for your supports all these years, let's hope 2021 will bring some good news for us. 

Happy Crafting,

Elvira
