We are living in a very challenging time. I think the world as we knew it before this Pandemic will not be the same, and I hope it will evolve to be better for all.
The coronavirus is a real thread, and we need to do the best we can to avoid its spread. Quarantine, social isolation, hand wash, wear face masks, and gloves are some important guidance we have to follow to contain the spread. There is a shortage of medical supplies, include surgical mask and gloves, and some hospitals are making homemade masks for the doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals on the front line of tackling the coronavirus outbreak and they are encourage us to do the same.
I came up with a crochet COVER mask as a fashion accessory to use with the real mask. There are all kinds of DIY face masks on the internet in case you want to make your own (see here).
I designed some hearts and flowers appliques to embellish it, but you can use your creativity and make your own appliques or even change colors.
We will get through!
