I made some batik face masks, three-layers cotton, lined with flannel, with pockets for filter.
People have asked if they can buy these and I’m making them available as a fund raiser for PALH (Philippine American Literary House).
I have six right now (June 12). one size small (the blue solid with batik trim); the rest are size medium — $30 each and US shipping is $10. I will pick up US shipping for orders of three. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can send you a paypal invoice.
I wash these in warm water and while they can tolerate the dryer, it is better to hang dry them. I also run an iron over them to make the pleats more crisp although they look all right if unironed.
For filters, I use coffee filter with nonwoven gauze sandwiched in between.
You can also change the loops so they tie in back of your head. You will have to use your own cord or ribbon. In some cases, you use one long cord so the bottom cord is continuous.
