This is my first post and I did not imagine it like this…
So I apologize for the lack of detail but wanted to show what I was doing as it got the interest of a crafter friend on south Whidbey Island. She is focaling an effort where people are making medical masks from regular cotton fabric and then delivering them to a local hospital, clinics and nursing homes. These are not N95 equivalents but the pattern she posted on Facebook was approved by the hospital she is working with.
The pattern was a scanned image that I got into Affinity, cleaned it up and off I went. Also cut a piece of junk plywood to hold down the fabric. Getting this all setup was really fast and the outcome is just awesome.
First cutting of 6 sheets,
Once that worked I went into production,
Here is the first four,
I love my Glowforge!!
Let know know if you are on Whidbey Island or know someone who has a Glowforge and would like to help these folks out but cutting their fabric for them. No doubt a good cause.
