Whilst these masks do not protect us in the same way as those produced for health care workers, they do offer a degree of protection that just might make a difference. This kit is for a double layer, shaped mask, which fits the face better than the pleated style and has a pocket inside where you can add an additional disposable filter. We have used coffee filter papers and some of these are included in the kits. As with any disposable mask, great care must be taken when using and washing them. There are care and use instructions in the kits, please make sure you read them.
Each kit is designed to make 4 adult masks (with careful cutting), possibly more if you are making one of the child sizes. The kit includes, 2 fat quarter squares of pure cotton fabric, elastic, coffee filter papers, full instructions and patterns for adult and child sizes to suit 2-5 year olds and 6-10 year olds. They can be hand or machine sewn, although use of a sewing machine is much quicker! You will need to wash your fabrics at 60C before you cut the masks out.
The kits come with 2 assorted fabrics and there are 3 options to choose from, plain, bold or floral designs. If you have a preference for certain colours, please indicate on the order form and we will do our best to match your request.
