LABOR OF LOVE

Quality Personal Face Coverings

HELPING WHERE I CAN

Like many, I have found myself wondering what I can do to help people cope with the COVID-19 situation. I started making homemade face shields to donate. Word got out to friends, and the requests are pouring in.

The need to wear masks is becoming necessary, if not mandatory, to help protect each other. We are truly in this together to minimize the risk of spreading the virus.

I realized many people don’t have sewing machines or skills to make them. To help those who can’t make their own, I started making masks at the end of March. They come in adult and kid sizes, in pleated and smooth styles.

I am taking orders here and through my FB page Shop, and filling them as quickly as possible.

About The Masks

THESE ARE NOT MEDICAL GRADE MASKS. However, several reliable resources have published instructions for cloth face coverings to use during the COVID outbreak which I have used as guidelines for making them. I researched to learn the best materials and pattern shapes to make these masks. These face coverings are made from layers of tight-woven cotton and flannel, with elastic ear loops and a wire across the nose bridge to shape for a close fit.

Styles are limited to the following designs.

Note: You cannot choose your actual fabric print, due to limited availability of each. You can request “masculine” or “feminine” print, and I will do my best to select an appropriate print from the fabrics I have in stock.

PLEATED STYLE

Made from 100% cotton outer fabric, a slot for adding your own optional non-woven middle layer, and a flannel backing; with elastic loops.

Adult and child sizing.

Specify Masculine or Feminine and I will make the mask from an appropriate print of my choosing, from the fabrics I have in stock at the time of your order.

SMOOTH STYLE

Made from 100% cotton outer fabric and a cotton flannel lining; with elastic loops.

Adult and child sizing.

Specify Masculine or Feminine and I will make the mask from an appropriate print of my choosing, from the fabrics I have in stock at the time of your order.
