Who would have thought 2020 would bring about such strange times? We find ourselves searching for patterns to make our own face coverings essential to compli with Gov advice when visiting hospitals or the surgery and also to travel on public transport.

Over the last few weeks lots of you have purchased our face cover kits, or have found patterns on the web, in magazines, or got a pattern from a friend. We have scoured the internet for information and it appears the most popular face covering is the 3 pleat style. Relatively easy to make, even for beginners however the style requires you to make 3 pleats to allow the covering to open over the nose, mouth and chin. These pleats can cause frustration to those new to sewing the pattern, for this reason  and because of your requests we have made a short how to master those pesky pleats video.
