REUSABLE FABRIC MASKS
All proceeds from the sale of these masks go to providing care for the animal residents of Cordy's Castle, a 501(c)3, not-for-profit organization.

Finally, after several tweaks and a total change on shape, I have created a mask that hugs the face and looks nice. The pleated masks are OK but they just don't feel snug to me so I tried a different style. With some modifications to include the built in filter, the stainless steel mold-able nose piece, and tapered sides, I think I got it just right.
I can make these in the following sizes:
Women & Teenagers
Young Child (7-12)
Small Child (3-6)
They are available with over the ear straps, around the head, or fabric ties.
I have some fabric choices listed here: Reusable Mask Fabric Options
If you have a color preference, please let me know in the comments. Since most stores are now closed, I'm limited to the fabric I have on hand, which is a lot as I appear to be a fabric hoarder, or that I can find at Walmart.
*Please note, there's no way for me to know what size will fit you best. Sizes above are for average sized people. If you are a bigger girl, you might need to order a men's. If you are a small guy, you may need to order a women's/teenager.
Because 1/4" elastic is near impossible to find and I've had to resort to using hair ties for the straps, if you order the over-the-ears version and they are too tight behind the ears, don't panic. You can work around this by using a ribbon, shoe lace. or any type of string to run through the elastic ear pieces and tie behind your head to take the pressure off the back of your ears.
The most important thing to ensure with your mask is that is fits snugly around your face. If you have gaps anywhere, that offers an area for germs, viruses, and bacteria to get in. If you need additional help, please contact me.
The CDC recommends washing your mask every day you use it. Hand wash with antibacterial detergent. Reshape and allow to air dry.
