Illinois Fighting Illini Fabric Mask
**These are handmade fabric face masks, no two will be identical. I have been making these for family and friends to wear in public due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. **
Prior to sewing, all cotton fabric has been washed. These handmade masks are made up of two pieces of 100% cotton fabric and the ties are made from 100% cotton fabric or bias tape. There is a small opening in the top to insert a filter.
The tie style type of mask is said to be more comfortable on the ears. Each tie is made from a 2" piece of cotton fabric, folded twice, pressed and sewed.
The print shown will be used to make the front of the mask. A coordinating solid color will be used for the ties and back of the mask, default colors are black or cream. I stitch multiple times over the pleats for stability.
All items come from a smoke free home; however, there are pets in the home.
Dimensions: Approximately 9" wide x 3.5" tall
Pleats: Pleats will expand to easily cover an adult face
Ties: 17 inches long
It is recommended that homemade masks be washed once received, after every use or as frequently as possible. Wash the homemade mask on a HIGH temperature using standard detergent. Dry on a high temperature. May require light ironing after drying. ** DO NOT MICROWAVE TO SANITIZE**
***These DO NOT come with filters, metal nose pieces or liners.***
