These kits are designed for people with access to a sewing machine to sew their own non-medical masks.
Your non medical mask sewing kit includes:
- two 12" by 7" squares of densely woven fabric (enough to make one mask)
- choose from the options of elastic to secure around ears, or ties
The fabric is large enough to use for most free patterns available, including the ones we recommend in our blog. We also have tips and tricks for sewing your mask, including making a pocket style mask like those we sell.
All sales on mask kits are final.
Colours and Materials
The fabrics in our kits are a yarn dyed 100% cotton gingham layer and a hemp/organic cotton layer. Both fabrics are densely woven and soft against the skin. They are also Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 certified.
Elastic kits will come with white elastic. Ribbon kits will come with either white or black elastic, depending on what we are able to get from our supplier. Supplies are very limited at this time.
These masks are not medical grade and should not be worn by medical professionals in a health care setting.

General Mask Information
The number one thing you can do to protect yourself and others is to STAY HOME, wash your hands frequently and remain physically distant from people who don't live in your household.
Any mask is better than not wearing a mask, however staying at home is better than ANY mask you could wear.
A mask will not protect you from contracting COVID-19. It should only be worn for brief periods while you are outside your house performing essential tasks, such as grocery shopping, when physical distancing is challenging.
Wearing a cloth mask is a way to protect other people from being exposed to you and potential germs you may carry, by reducing the number of droplets you exhale from reaching others. It can also reduce the number of droplets you inhale.
We ship orders every Tuesday and Thursday. Please understand as well that our postal system is under a lot of stress and delays in shipping are beyond our control.
