And then sometimes I just have pieces of fabric that will work well for one purpose, so I may as well whip up something so that folks who just want to buy what they see can enjoy a TAV Creations original too…
So, without further ado…click on each for more details
My elevator pitch used to be: ” I sew, I dance; I teach both.”
I have retired from performing and teaching dance< Belly and Bollywood>, but I still am lucky enough to be able to keep up the creativity with my sewing work.
Every once in a while, I am lucky enough to be able to assist another sewist in the completion of their projects that may have gotten away from them, their lives have become too busy, or whatever the reason…
Here’s the latest – and I love it – I want one for me now ! I don’t need one though… sigh…

If you need help finishing a project, let me know and let’s co-create something amazing!
If you decided early to go with a breathable fabric mask to reduce your impact on the environment and keep others safe – yay!
You may have purchased a Style 1E/1T TAVMask from me to help support an Ottawa based business, or you may have purchased from one of the many other awesome sewists who have been doing their part to try to help keep everyone a bit safer.
So, now it should be a 3 layer mask, but yours has no pocket to insert either a reusable or disposable filter!!! And you have a few of them!!
3 layers of fabric – 1 Organic cotton/ hemp blend for support; 1 layer polypropylene for filtering; 1 layer organic cotton sateen for comfort with support boning to gentle hold the mask away from your lips but still allow it to sit securely against your face.
I now have receive and can provide the appropriate polypropylene, but there are some suggestions that may help you add your own filter in the meantime:
Filters add an extra layer of protection against COVID-19 by trapping small infectious particles. Consider wearing a mask that includes a filter or filter material as one of its layers, such as:
non-woven polypropylene fabric, which can be found as:
a craft fabric
the non-woven fabric that’s used to make some reusable shopping bags
a disposable filter inserted into a pocket on the mask
Reusable masks with a non-woven filter layer should be washed daily, and can be washed multiple times. Disposable filters should be changed daily or as directed by the manufacturer.
