10 Non Medical Face Masks - You Choose the Fabric
This is for 10 washable adult sized or kids sized face mask or a combo of both.
Double elastic across the head for fit & comfort for all sizes easy to wear
Reversible for 2 colours and patterns in 1
Nose & chin dart and 3 pleats on each size gives full coverage and snug fit
Sewn in nose clamp helps to form the mask across the nose area
Bottom opening in the seam if you’d like to add a filter
The fabric will be 2 layers of a cotton or cotton blend tightly woven fabric.
Adult Size - width of mask is approx 10” across front and fits most adults or kids with larger faces
Kids Large Size - is good for adults with small faces or kids. It is 15% smaller than the adult size and won’t have a nose wire or filter pocket. Width is approx 8 1/2” across front
Kids Small Size - If younger than 5 year old, I’ll make a pleated mask with adjustable elastic & without nose wire or filter pocket. Width is approx 5 1/2” across front
Note: getting the right size is more than an age factor ~ some kids from 10 up have adult sized heads

A bit about our initiative during Covid-19:
Mid March, Diana pivoted due to a extreme halt in her business from the global pandemic. She quickly set up a Facebook Group called The Sewing Army and invited her friends to join. Within a month, over 3200 volunteers sewed and delivered over 25,000 pieces of PPE to frontline workers. CAA Ontario joined forces to help deliver finished products safely to organizations. Brother Canada donated refurburished machines for sewists. Many small businesses donated fabrics to the cause.
To date, the PPE donations are over 113,000 to hospitals, shelters, grocery stores, midwifes, transit workers, non profit and charity organizations etc. see what we’re up to at www.thesewingarmy.com
Please remember that these masks are not medical grade or replacements for N95 masks and should not be used as such. Social distancing measures should be implemented even when wearing a mask.
please wash the mask before trying on for the first time and between each use.
