Scrap Happy Face Covers

So, how are you doing? I hope you are well and hanging in there. I hope you have a fair share of food, drink, and paper products. I hope you are getting enough exercise, fresh air, and emotional support. But mostly, I hope this cray-cray time ends as quickly as possible. Weeks into this mess, I now realize the need to step outside for little breaks to rejuvenate. I read somewhere that when “…planning for distance learning, teachers need to cut their plans in half; then in half again.” Thankfully, I have a great Admin who understands and promotes this.

I decided to QAYG (first timer) my Scrap Happy quilt. So far I’ve sewn twelve 18″ (45cm) blocks. I’ve made a few mistakes and I wish I used a softer color backing; but, it’s all good. However, this project is side-lined as I construct face covers.

I am making face covers for my at risk family members. Something is better than nothing, right? My nieces requested “kitties.” My sister asked if she should order fabric and I replied, “Nooo! Scraps I have!” πŸ˜‰ I used a never-worn T-shirt as “elastic.” I had to laugh when my mom asked, “Isn’t that the shirt I gave you?” Why, yes it is. πŸ˜€

Scrap Happy is open to anyone using up scraps of anything and is hosted monthly by Kate and Gun. Check out some of the projects others have create for Scrap Happy:

    1. Haha! Nope. Didn’t go over well. I couldn’t find elastic at the time of making; so I improvised with a cotton t-shirt.

  1. pretty and practical. What’s not to love? (byt he way – my mum hasn’t bought me any clothing other than the occasional pair of slipper socks since I was in secondary school!!)

    1. Thanks! I keep telling my mom there is a vast style preference between octogenarians and and younger generations. But, she’s strong-willed, LOL. πŸ˜€

  2. Ooops! Awkward Mom moment! How nice of you to make them for family members. I haven’t made any yet, hoping I don’t have to, but it could come to that. We’re in a county with relatively few cases, and I’m mostly staying inside. I went along with a friend to the doctor and stayed in the car to watch her children, then we went through drive through for lunch and ate outside at a huge park, in the grass in the wind. That’s my big adventure for the week! LOL I hope your adventures are more interesting, and just as safe.

    1. Last check, there are 442, 707 people living in my city. Most have stayed home. But sometimes you have to go buy food and other necessities. Supposedly, our beaches will re-open in a few weeks with restrictions – not sure I’ll be visiting them. *sigh* The ‘word’ is our schools may still be closed come the fall.
