On March 20th I was watching the news it was being reported, our medical professionals where running out of masks while treating Covid-19 patients.
I started to cry, for weeks all we've seen is Covid-19 all over the internet and the news.
I got overwhelm, after about 10 mins I googled "How to make a mask? Whats in a mask?" I also found several patterns.
I had everything cotton fabric, non-woven interfacing and elastic.
I said to my husband "I can do this, I have the materials, the knowledge and the machines."
So that night I made several patterns and started making masks.
A few days later people started asking to donate, to buy masks and I started an amazon wish list. My friends and family believed in me and donated materials or money to cover any materials and shipping. I'm on day eight and today I shipped out 60 masks to New York City, Philadelphia, UCLA, Ventura county, local hospitals, local home health workers and friends.
Here are a few pics of this journey and follow my instagram, it's in the Highlights.
