This video is a step-by-step tutorial on how to sew (by hand or machine) a 3-layer fabric face mask with filter pocket, nose support, and ear loops that can be adjusted for a perfect and comfortable fit. It provides a better seal and helps prevent fogging if you wear eyeglasses.
Fabric masks are not replacements for surgical or N-95 masks. They are made from inexpensive materials and may be worn in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. These masks are washable and reusable but should not be placed on young children under age two, anyone who has trouble breathing, is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.
You know that moment when you are so very proud of your child? Well, imagine being able to be an active part in that moment with them. That was the amazing, inspiring father’s gift I received last night! It was at my daughter’s 10th grade piano recital and I had a chance to sing one of our favourite songs together with her. Here’s our rendition of Coldplay’s “Fix You“. The incredible gift for me was watching her lead me through the whole creative process — she was our director, vocal coach and visionary of how the song should be presented and I loved every minute of the journey.
Happy Father’s Day to all fathers. May you always be able to do something with your children!
