I had been dragging my feet about making homemade face masks...
I ordered some from my friend Tiffany. She has an Etsy shop where she normally creates custom items for Disney cruises, but began offering her mask making services, since the majority of her regular customers don't sew:
Since I didn't know what size would work for my family members, I ordered some of each. It worked out well and there are even a couple to share with some friends! :o))
These are the variations between the sizes that I purchased:
Here I am wearing the woman's size. It fits comfortably:
The men's size is ENORMOUS on me and slides down my face...
... However, that size fits my DH perfectly and it would also be more appropriate for someone with a fuller face:
This is the woman's sized mask on him, which apparently fits him about as well as the teen size fits me:
There was a surprise included in with my order! Tiffany knows me well. I got some fabric scraps tucked into my package:
Thanks, Tif! Your masks took a load off my mind at a time when I couldn't deal with the thought of making any of my own.
While the masks are much like some that I've attempted since my order, Tiffany included some details that mine don't have. She's thought of everything! There's a nose wire and even an opening/pocket for inserting an N95 respirator at the top of each mask:
If YOU are all "masked out" and still have people on your list who need masks, if you just happened upon my blog and don't sew, or if you just don't want to use your sewing time to make masks,
Until next time...
What's in YOUR mail???
