IMPORTANT: I am one person doing all of this and usually make customers wait up to 4 weeks for orders to be shipped so that I have time to sew, but for these special fun-mask orders I am getting each one out by-at the latest-two weeks after it’s placed. Please bear with me! I offer cheaper masks that ship out faster if that's what you need.
Promised to make some more-intricate cute masks to match my lingerie sets--here's the first phase of them!
The fabric I'm making these drawstring tie masks with is the same type of fabric I use to make my other items: two layers of a soft light-to-mid weight organic cotton spandex jersey.
These are of course not on the level of N95s--I am just improvising with what I have on hand, which will provide a good amount of protection for wear in average day-to-day life (i.e. going to the grocery store) but it's not foolproof--I can't guarantee anything! But it is my understanding that wearing any sort of protection helps quite a bit. I've read a bunch online, and cotton jersey is lauded as one of the best options for homemade masks--it is a good balance of blocking tiny particles while still being pretty breathable.
If you are wondering, yes, I am continuing to donate at least as many masks as I sell! I don't plan on stopping that any time soon.
(Additionally--I am quarantining myself quite well here at home and fully believe myself not to be sick + am always working with washed/clean hands, but if somehow virus got on my fabric, it would not be able to survive on that surface for long enough to make it to when said package is delivered to you. So by spending time in transit these should effectively sterilize themselves).
