This is my submission for Mr Spoqui's recycled masks contest. I'm not sure if this is what they expected but... here it is: cross-stitch embroidery on hand-punched cardboard from used boxes. I also made a hat. I was thinking of this one (I love the whole outfit, I think I should get a real hat and dress like that.)
