      I'll ask her 😊

      I can't get a hold of her, but that style is on this page, just scroll down more too. She did say she altered the nose to get the shape better.

        That fits better than almost any mask I have seen.

          Love the mask. It's the style that I prefer and have already made 50 for donations. On the nose issue..if you use a quarter inch, it doesn't sit cleanly against the nose. Start out at the top with 1/2" and taper down about 3/4" to the 1/4" seam allowance. Also, the first pattern does not include the seam allowance, so make sure you allow for that when you cut. They have made some changes and included seam allowances. I'd still recommend tucking that nose section back a bit, but try it out on one. I don't use wire in them.

            I can't give advice on the pattern, because she made it from a friends design and then made her own alterations. The link I gave is only suggestions to the style. If you scroll down there are some with different fits around the nose. I'm pretty sure she shaped it because she wears glasses.

              Thats the pattern I've been using. I do have a wire patched in the nose.

                Thanks for the link and everyone's comments. The T-shirt mask is really cool for the guys. My husband asked if I could use "one of those nature themed batiks" for him.

                  I just saw a post where someone made a cloth band to hold the masks elastic. It was just a thin piece of material with buttons on the ends. I guess if you have to wear the masks all day they can really irritate your ears.

                    Your dau is really cute and her masks are great! I saw a cute one on fb that had Wonder Woman in the center of the mask and it was really my favorite one I have seen yet. I love that ppl are being so creative, like using ties with pony beads, and everyone is so generous with tips and how tos.
