Stitched by: Olivia Chapman

Pattern designed by: Cross stitch: Olivia Chapman / Mask pattern: @seekatesew

I was inspired to make this mask for the March4Justice rally in Melbourne this year. It was the first protest, march or rally I have ever been to. The systemic misogyny and violence targeted at women that exists today in Australia is overwhelmingly unfathomable. I felt compelled to attend the rally to advocate for lasting change and fight for justice for the victims.

I got the pattern to make the mask from See Kate Sew https://seekatesew.com/3d-mask-template/ and I created my own font for the cross stitch text. I used soluble cross stitch canvas to stitch my design onto the fabric.
