SEW SIDES TOGETHER:

Sew around the edges leaving a 1/2 seam allowance and a 3 inch gap on one side.
At the corners, sew back-and-forth to secure the ties in place. Make sure to angle the tie strings in the corners. Take care not to sew any dangling portions of the ties!

Remember to leave an opening!

WIX SPECIAL NEEDS.png

3 layers of fabric are appreciated

Due to new and more virulent strains of COVID-19, three mask layers are appreciated for crafters who can spare the additional expense.

Tie masks with simple nose design

WIX MASK SIZE CHART.png

Adult and child's masks are welcome

Migrant workers work long hours (over 12 hours in heavy harvest times) and wear multiple layers as sun protection in the summer. Use two layers of cotton, rectangular style with ties. These masks need to be washable and wearable with various sun gear (sunglasses, hats, etc.) as summer arrives. Please do not include clamps or material that cinch, pinch or conform at the nose in these masks.
A mix of sizes (adult and child) are appreciated, please see the below chart for assistance with pattern adjustments.
