Every day I make a few more and hang them on the pegboard meant to hold pool supplies and toys. I am running out of elastic pony tail holders and wishing that my 200 yards of elastic would appear like magic. I will resort to making ties for them before I will venture into a store. There are 15 hanging and I have forgotten how many I have handed out.
This hardly made a dent in my fabric stash. After I made the first dozen, I washed them, then decided it would be easier to wash the fabric, then make them.
I have plenty to work on, at least 15 yards. I can get 5 out of 1/4 yard. I would need to make 4 15" ties per mask, so I really prefer elastic. I am sure that everyone prefers the elastic, as opposed to having to tie them on. The only advantage to one that ties on is that you can untie the top and leave it hanging around your neck until you need it.
Another idea would be to use t-shirt bottoms and sew them to fit over the mouth and nose when needed, them drop down to the neck when not in use. But, I would get too hot. It would be like wearing a scarf around your neck to stay warm.
I am making another grocery order to pick up. So many things I can't get. I can't get chicken breasts, But they offer smoked turkey tails. I discard those. They are just skin and fat. No ground turkey, but they offer beef tripe (stomach). I can't imagine these items to be big sellers. Makes me wonder if they are trying to push these items to reduce inventory. I should just be happy I can get pony tail elastics with my grocery order!
