I have lowered the cost of donating a mask to $5 I will share the cost with you. Any masks purchased to donate will be sent to organizations supporting Black Lives Matter protesters so they can hopefully stay Covid free while fighting for what is right.
About Our Masks:
- All our masks are made from either new or recycled materials that were originally purchased for other products. We are trying to stick with our values and using what we have on hand first, but don't worry we are only using the fabrics best suited for masks.
- Our masks are made especially to fit larger faces. While the mask itself is the normal size (approx. 3.5"x7") we have made the elastic ear loops longer (approx. 8") to accommodate a bigger face. You can twist the ear loop once before putting it around your ear to tighten it up if it feels a little loose. The elastic is a soft flat elastic that allows for a more comfortable wearing experience. It is important to follow the directions from the CDC for how to properly wear a fabric mask.
- Each mask is made from two layers of fabric with a slot/pocket at the top edge to insert a filter (if you want to) and three pleats down the side. We've also put a soft wire in the nose area which allows you to form it to your face for a better fit. The side with the nose wire should be worn on the outside to prevent the inside later from gaping open.
- Our masks are made from machine washable fabrics but we suggest you put it in a delicates bag or wash by hand to prevent the elastic from getting damaged. The CDC also has specific directions on when to wash your mask, please follow them for your own safety. We also HIGHLY recommend that you wash your mask before wearing it for the first time.
- This is not our original pattern and there are a lot of different options available so I want to say a huge thank you to Onderbroeks for sharing this pattern from JadyBabys with me.
- Each of these masks is handmade by me (Danielle McAllister) in my home studio.
Using a fabric face mask will not prevent you from getting Covid-19. Public health officials have said that wearing fabric masks is to help protect those around you as much possible and can only be helpful when we maintain all other measures like proper hand washing and physical distancing. The CDC has provided a PDF on the proper procedure to put on and take off face masks. Please follow it for your own protection.
Each mask will be, pressed then packaged in to a sealed plastic sleeve (unfortunate but necessary). You should wash your mask BEFORE wearing it.
