Woolly Snake

The Knits for Kitties book has so many great patterns I had to make Ursula another toy. The pattern was easy and I used stash yarn.

Ursula totally knew I was making her a toy.

My favorite part was putting on the facial features. Isn’t that tongue adorable?

The pipe cleaner was a clever way to make the snake curve. Eventually it started poking out so I pulled it out. She still loves it though!

Face Masks

Strange times indeed! On the upside, I finally have time to develop my long held dream of being a seamstress. Face masks are in demand now and I’ve been making plenty.

My masks are based on the Olson Mask pattern. This design has a built in pocket to allow for an extra filter (like a N95 filter) to be slid inside for extra protection.

This design also allows the wearer to replace the elastic should it wear out.

Thank goodness for my fabric stash! I’ve been using up all of my cotton fabric.

Even though these masks are for practical purposes, I still have to make them fashionable.

I’m selling masks for $10 each. If you would like to purchase some please leave a comment and I will email you.

For every ten masks sold I’m making one to donate to either health workers or those currently income deprived. The above two were given away.

Time to #stayhomeandsew!
