You know what will make this season of life a little more cheerful? A hand embroidered face mask, that’s what!
I recently purchased a pack of solid-colored masks from Gap and decided to jazz one up with a little embroidery! I loved the results so much that I’m actually working on making a second hand embroidered face mask!
If you want to do the same to one (or two or three) of your masks, you can easily do so with a few supplies and a couple of minutes!
- Embroidery floss
- Embroidery hoop
- Water-soluble marking pen
Hand Embroidered Face Mask
From the start, I knew I wanted to embroider at least one of the flowers from one of my favorite books, Botanical Line Drawing.
After deciding to use my all-time favorite flower, which makes monthly appearances on Instagram, I took my water-soluble marker and began drawing my chosen design on my mask. I chose a large flower along with a few dots for one side and two leaves and more dots for the other.
Then, I threaded my needle and got right to it! I used a backstitch for the flowers and leaves and french knots for the little dots!
My design is simple, but cheery and has brought me so much joy! I will admit that I haven’t worn this mask as many times as I would like, because I’m worried about getting it dirty and messing it up! I know that’s ridiculous, so this is me telling you that I’m going to start wearing my hand embroidered face mask all the time going forward!
Have you personalized any face masks? If so, tell me all about it! I’d love to hear how you’re spicing up your mask game!
