Medical Masks

"I’m making flowers for everyone. Well, actually I’m making masks, but I’m using up fabric remnants from my sewing stash, and that means girly, colorful, playful prints. Like I said – flowers for everyone. Even for my conservative corporate husband. If we need to wear medical masks during this unexpected pandemic, who says they have to look somber and institutional? Why not pretty? In fact, I think these floral masks just might add a touch of happy to an otherwise scary situation."
