Covid-19 | The Journal | Part 2

Added to our Covid-19 journal has been a spread about our attempt at making face masks. I filled one half of a 3x4 pocket with embellishments and stitched diagonally across it. (The embellishments are actually highlighting the other side of the spread, which details the scarcity of paracetamol.)
