Canada Mask

Thought I’d share the pics of the face mask I made to show my patriotism and support of all Canadians during the COVID crisis.
 
I took a picture of a Canadian flag off the internet and printed it off. The leaf was, fortunately, a good size for the 6″ x 9″ rectangle that the mask is made from. The two side panels are 2″ each and just sewn on. Non-woven interfacing in between the front and back (back is just white) and binding/ties made from the same fabric as the flag. Like a buffalo plaid just scaled down. I showed it to my husband and he asked me to make one for him too.
 
He also came up with using a smaller piece of elastic, those little snips we always have left over after projects but hate to throw out!. Attach it to the end of each of the ties (shorten the ties). Then you have a fitted mask with minimal elastic used. That’ll stretch your elastic stash just that much further!
 
Imagine a sea of Canadian flags at the grocery store – 2 meters apart of course — we don’t show our love of Canada and Canadians too often but now would certainly be a good time.
