It’s been a little under a year since the mask-wearing birds first made their debut on the Rockydale Universe stage–and, oh, the places they’ve been! Now spring has sprung and the birds are back looking fab in their new maskwear! Between that time and this, I’ve made and handed out more than 500 masks. With the arrival of spring and hope, I’ve suddenly felt the urge to get making masks again–fun, warmer-weather, 2.0 masks. So here we all are. I hope you enjoy your new masks as much as I’ve enjoyed making them for you. Love your mask? Have a mask story to share? Please do so at the end of the beep. And as always, stay safe, be well, and thanks for stopping by.
Caring for your mask:
Wash and dry in any load. No babying required.
Steam iron to sanitize or refresh, and to set the pleats.
Please do not iron the elastic–it will melt!
Replacing the nose-bridge wire:
Locate the small opening in the top seam and wiggle out the old wire. Slip in the replacement nose-bridge wire that came with your mask. I finally replaced my nose-bridge wires after almost a year of use. Please note: the wire in all children’s masks is sewn in, for safety.
The stuff your mask is made of:
- Pre-washed Cotton + Steel quilting fabric, two layers.
- Soft, non-latex elastic–do not iron the elastic!
- Polyester sewing thread.
- 3mm plastic-coated metal twist tie wires that can be washed.
- 100% stardust (as are well all).
