The Benefit

  • term icon

Here is how the project went:

We have stitched 250 masks and distributed them to healthcare workers and other people working in the front line

Through this project I/we learned:

We learned that teamwork is essential. It was challenging because we made a pattern, learnt how to stitch a mask and then we sent a few masks to the hospital. Once we got approval from the hospital, we started making them in bulk. It was a great feeling when we were successful in reaching our goal

What I/we might change:

learn how to stitch more efficiently,

My/our favorite part of this project was:

watching the smiles on peoples faces when we gave them the masks

Some tips, tricks or fun facts about the project:

make a pattern on a thick piece of cardboard. Use a cutting board to cut the cloth
