@bleeptrack I sewed some bandanas recently because they are cute (see most recent selfie) but also because I can pull them over my face quickly if needed
That's what the pattern looks like. Edge (1) goes to the fabric fold. Cut it out twice. See together the V edges on (2) and (3). Sew both pieces together at (4) and (5). Sew a tunnel at (6) to pull a rubber band through. But leave at least one side open to insert the filter.
@bleeptrack it doesn't filter virus, that's true, but stops the "minispits" everyone does when speaking and breathing.
Yeah, it's more a "protect others" than "protect yourself" thing. Would be nice to have a higher acceptance of face masks in non-asian countries.
@bleeptrack the problem is that in Europe or North America using a mask is seen as a "possible threat to security" by the police.
@bufalo1973 @bleeptrack I think it really depends on the type of mask + situation, normal surgical style or particle/air filter in normal use I don't see is much of an issue. I often wear a mask when winter cycling & never had an issue, also occasionally see Asian people wearing surgical masks on the bus etc and no one makes an issue about it. I think a bigger issue in uptake is the individualist "I protect me" vs prosocial "I protect you" attitudes.
@bleeptrack sooo cool, very cyberpunk. looks neat! wish I had such sewing skills, but I never really got past patches on hoodies. I also hope the mask stigma in europe will vanish with the current situation.
@bleeptrack looks good. welcome to the club of colorful mask wearers. Let's destigmatize the use of masks in public 💪🏻
@viennawriter @bleeptrack @mentalshirt Sowas? (Frage mich ja die ganze Zeit, ob mich das wohl motivieren würde, im Winter mehr Fahrrad zu fahren…)
@drc Ja, ich habe zwischen der Nase und dem Abnäher am Wangenknochen auf beiden Seiten eine Öffnung gelassen.
