Here to Help You Mask-Up in Style

I’ve been busy making face masks!

While sheltering in place this past March, I put down the knitting needles and brushed off my long-neglected sewing machine to create some fabric face masks of my own. My sister, a recently unemployed engineer who loves a good project, tinkered with the design while I sewed up a storm, and a few weeks later we had a regular production line going, supplying masks to friends, family, and the community at large.

My Noyes Street Knits fitted face mask is made from two layers of 100% cotton which can be machine washed and dried. It’s designed to fit snugly under the chin, crimped on the bridge of the nose with a nose wire, and sloped slightly under the eyes for better comfort and sight.

Masks are reversible, with a removable nose wire, and pocket for a filter (not included.) They come with customizable ear loops made of washable t-shirt cord. Adjust the loops using the cord locks for a snug fit that’s comfortable on the ears.

There are currently two sizes of mask: large (6 ½-inches top to bottom) and small (for kids, 5 ½-inches top to bottom).

As with my knitting projects, this is a labor of love. I enjoy finding new fun fabrics and color combinations. It looks as if face masks will be a part of our future for a little while longer, so we might as well have fun with it.
