Lisa’s face mask pattern (this is for the masks you see pictured above)
Advice from my personal experience
- ear loops should be as soft as possible, because the back of your ears will get sore or irritated if you wear them for a while
- some people will prefer the masks that tie or band around the head instead of the ones that use ear loops for this reason
- masks with “beaks” or lots of space in front of the mouth are much more comfortable and wearable for longer periods as they give you space to breath and speak
- try to keep those seams tidy and smooth, so they don’t rub or irritate skin

I’ve heard Joann Fabrics is still selling online and perhaps even doing a drive through pickup. Please contact your local store to confirm.
