It’s been great to see so many people buying my designs on face masks, partly because it helps pay my bills but also because you’re all good guys helping make things safer for everyone.

Society6 now have face masks available too so I’ve been busy adding my designs. These are the pleated style so only really work with patterns but that’s fine as I have plenty!

They’re non-medical masks for personal use and have a dual layer construction with space for your own disposable filters. A portion of all proceeds will be donated to help the COVID-19 recovery effort.
