Yes, I sell fabric masks right here in Youngstown, Ohio. This is my show & tell page so friends & others can see photos of what is currently available. Hope you see something you like… if not, please view another day as photos are added (or deleted) as I sew. Prices are 5 for casual masks, 8 for pleated flats, and 10 for fitted masks, plus postage if mailed (USA only please, as I am not exporting during the plague.) Porch pickup is available on the south side of YO. Thank You!
Finishing Options (made to order masks)
Here is what I have on hand for elastic and straps… minus the brown elastic (used that today for “around the head” order).
I started making the elastic ear loops longer and NOT sewing it in so people can adjust the length for a custom fit OR pull it out and slide in a strap…. shoestrings work great (min. 45 inches for a single strap, the 54 is a nice length but maybe too long for some people). I have a few black and white 54 inch on hand… of course, you can always BYO shoestrings.
The black/grey/white is a jersey that reminds me of t-shirt fabric cut into one long continuous strip with raw edges… so the blue variegated above. The coral strada is also a jersey knit, but it is a “yarn” for knitting. A single strand doesn’t have much stretch (ear loops would have to be the “right” size) and it is a little too thin to use as a strap, but if you chain it (as shown on right edge of photo), it makes a stretchy strap.
All casual masks are in limited quantities, some only one, unless otherwise noted. Perhaps I should have photographed each individually so I could delete as sold.
Casual masks are made by cutting a fabric circle in half, the sewing the curve before pulling it open and sewing the raw edges together with ear loops tucked into the points. Here’s the PDF pattern that I drew up for my sister, if you want to try making your own. Please know that I changed the size of the children’s masks (tot batiks are about 8″ dia.) as the suggested size for children’s masks comes out so tiny it looks like it belongs on a toy.
Payment options for porch pickup are cash, Cashapp, or PayPal (can do paypal.me or email invoice). If you want masks mailed, please use PayPal so I can print your USPS First Class shipping label online at PayPal for ye 3 bones per package (other methods require printing high priced Priority labels at USPS website). Ohio Sales Tax is included.
