Have you been spending your days sitting around at home, watching the news, twiddling your thumbs feeling hopeless, wishing there was something you could do to help?
Well, there is!
Whether you're working on a sewing machine, or stitching by hand, all you need is a piece of fabric, an elastic band (or ribbon, or shoelace even!). Just work off of their helpful template, which shows you the shapes and sizes you'll be cutting.
For those looking to really make the most of their newfound downtime, if you make 100 masks, and send them to Lingua Franca, they'll send you one of their cashmere sweaters as a thank you in return for your hard work!
Can't make the Zoom party? Check out their mask tutorial below! Also, how cool is their Head Designer Deedee?!?

This pattern is also easily adapted to hand-sewing. We suggest using a back stitch. Join us at 2pm EST today (Friday 3/27) on Zoom to make a face mask live with Deedee and the LF team! https://zoom.us/j/827329681 Find the pattern and more information here: http://linguafranca.nyc/produc...
