Well, hello there. My, it’s been a long, long time.
I haven’t been around these parts in over THREE YEARS! How does that happen? In this case, it happens by getting caught up in a move, then concentrating on my fiber art work—both good things, but my poor little designs here have been very neglected.
A lot has changed at the companies I work with in the last few years—some products are gone, some new (and cool!) products have been introduced. I’m working on getting my designs updated on Spoonflower, Redbubble, and Society6, then looking at other ways to share my work (if you have suggestions, please let me know).
One item that has been introduced almost everywhere is the face mask. Each of the companies I use has a slightly different take on masks, which is good because everyone seems to have slightly different needs: pleated or flat, tie behind the head or elastic around the ears, filter insert or no, and so on. I have a few of Redbubble’s version, mostly because they were the first ones I could get my hands on last year.
These masks are two layer and have elastic ear straps. I think they are comfortable and they fit my face pretty well. You can find all of my masks on Redbubble here.
Society6 is offering a pleated double-layer mask. There is also a side opening to slide a filter into the mask if you desire, though it is not included with your purchase. I haven’t tried these masks, but I do like those adjustable elastic ear straps.
You can find my mask shop on Society6 here.
If you are into making your own masks, Spoonflower has you covered. You can always find fabric on the site if you already have a pattern you like, but they also offer a mask kit that includes a cut-and-sew pattern to make two masks and either elastic or twill tape for straps.
I don’t have a “mask shop” on Spoonflower, but you can order the kits through my main shop here. Find the design you like, click on it, then scroll to about the middle of the page and you will see a link to get to the face mask kit.
4.22.21 UPDATE: It appears that masks kits are no longer available through Spoonflower, so if you are looking to make face masks, you’ll need to order fabric and use your own pattern. All of my fabrics are available here.
