Not Your Ordinary Face Mask
Looking for a better fitting re-usable mask? You found it! Each mask takes 8 pieces of fabric to assemble. What does 8 pieces mean for you? A better shape and much better coverage. I tried several prototypes before landing on this design. It covers nose and mouth and chin with minimal gaps. Plus, I added an additional layer of material in mouth area making this a 3-ply cotton mask. This is a great mask for an enclosed environment. (We have another model that's lightweight--great for outdoors when contact with people is limited.)
- Machine washable
- 3-ply 100% cotton
- Pocket for removable filter
- Extra soft and comfortable elastic to secure mask to ears
- Optional removable head tie on request
- 2 sizes (Medium and Large) Note: Medium seems to be best fit for women
- Happy to send you an email or text on which fabrics are still available should you like to choose (custom fabrics available here)
- Solid fabrics available here
If you want to use a filter in your mask for added protection, you may cut a piece of blue shop towel, flannel material, vacuum cleaner bag or air conditioning filter using a simple pattern available to download in my shop--I've also included an option to just buy a filter with the material I am using. (I've also just added an option to purchase a metal nose bridge. It's adhesive, so I'm using mine on my filter, which I remove to launder.) But what is most important, is making sure your mask has minimal gaps. You can achieve this by having a good fit (instructions on how to tighten elastic straps will be sent with mask).
My 15 year old daughter and I are working together to create the masks. We've left room for helping those in need, be it giving out free masks or making donations locally with our proceeds.
If you are facing economic troubles or are unable to pay full price, please see other option for donation basis.
