Handmade fabric face masks now available

Handmade fabric face masks

During the past few months I’ve been sewing face masks for family and friends. Then friends of friends started ordering. It was great to be at the sewing machine.

I’m now offering my handmade fabric face masks to my lovely Ribbons Galore customers.

These masks are made with THREE layers. The 2 outer layers of the masks are 100% cotton quilting fabric, with a third layer of non woven polyester filling. I use the cotton quilting fabric as it is a tightly woven fabric and is one of the recommended for fabrics for these masks. The masks are reversible.

The ear holders are elastic strap loops.

I make the following sizes:

  • Women’s (medium);
  • Men’s (extra large);
  • Child’s (small) this size is by special order.

Each fabric mask is handmade, please allow up to 5 working days for the mask to be sewn before posting or being available for local pick up.

The masks are hand or gentle machine washable. It is recommended you wash your mask daily. Do not iron the elastic.
