NEEDLEWORKMONDAY: CROCHETING FACE MASK FOR EMERGENCYsteemCreated with Sketch.

in needleworkmonday •  2 months ago 

Hello everybody,

My post for today is about how and why I crocheted this Multi Purpose Face Mask, that is scarce to find here in our area and almost all pharmacy in the Philippines and online with skyrocket high price, first because of the Taal Volcano eruption near Manila then next about the emergency global concern the Novel Coronavirus.

During the Taal Eruption it was on the headlines that more mask was needed by the evacuees and many areas affected by the ashfall. Then, in one of our crochet online group member, Gloria Vito, base in Cavite crocheted her cotton yarns into a N95 shape facemask sewing the bra pad as the inside just so her whole family can't breathe the foul smell of volcano emissions which they experienced and to protect her grandkids who were all have asthma because no more available mask in their area.

I right away find my bra pads supposed to be intended to design for summer bikini and design my own face mask with my intention also to make some and send to manila.
Here was the proto type:

But, when I posted in my fb timeline and fb page, many crocheters were asking the pattern of the prototype, so instead to produce many I made a video and posted on my YouTube Channel.

Now, am sharing some of my work-in-progress pics. Just visit my Channel to view the video how to and text pattern included.

Multi-purpose Face Mask

This crocheted face mask can be useful to foul smell, ashfall, tiny weeny dust and protect anybody from spreading cough droplets and when you sneeze in public.

Ha ha ha! Hubby said, " You will die not with the virus but with your outfit because you can not breathe anymore"...

Funny eh, but our times at the moment is Scary....

Oh, by the way this pattern can be use if you design a bikini top and any like preggy look just use some creative imagination.

Thanks for passing by...

YOu did a great job to design a pattern for a face mask which is so dearly needed right now. A friend of mine will fly to the Philipines on Friday for peace negotiation and I hope she will be safe (I don’t think going by plane is a very good idea right now, because of the Corona virus)
I am grateful that you could help many people to protect themselves and others by wearing a face mask. I hope someone will find a medication for this virus fast.

True @neumannsalva this afternoon in the News, 3 cases positive with NCoronaVirus here in the philippines confirmed. And, number of suspected still growing plus the government plane will fetch Filipinos in Wuhan and be contained in Nueva Ecija in Luzon, will lang ni Clark, ho my! My fave airport...too risky move though of the government...
