Custom Face Masks by Velinda

This all started quite by accident

When the requirement for facemasks was implemented due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I decided to make my own. I made the first mask for my daughter who put a picture of her wearing the mask on her Facebook page. Her friends on Facebook asked her where she got the mask, and if I could make masks for them.  So, I made a few and thought it was all over.  Then my daughter, who works at a popular Mexican food restaurant, started wearing her mask at work since her work required face masks. The patrons who came in would ask her, “where did you get that”.  And, so it began.  Numerous requests for face masks, referrals from those original customers and I was busy doing little else. 

I have met so many wonderful people from this crazy turn of events, and I’m sure I will stay friends with some of them.  You never know where the good things can come from…sometimes good things come from the bad things that happen to us. 

How are my masks different?

It has been recommended by WHO and the CDC that face masks for the public (because most of us cannot afford or find the expensive ones) be made of cotton or other breathable material. The masks should “fit” the face for better protection that loose masks do not offer.  It is also recommended that two layers of fabric be used to allow for better protection.

When the lockdown and requirement for masks started, the fabric stores were raided and fabric and ear loop elastic disappeared rapidly.  I had bought fabric, but did not have elastic.  I had to come up with a different design and fit to allow for the ear bands to fit without stretching too much. So I designed my own custom face mask that is popular today and has the following qualities:

All my masks are made from 100% preshrunk, new material cotton, breathable, washable, and reusable.  They are also reversible, offering two layers of fabric and a different design on each side. The masks fit without gaps to allow for protection and cover the face almost to the ears. They are not flat, which makes breathing easier. I custom make the masks and will even adjust, if necessary, to accommodate for face size differences.

Please look over my current selections and contact me here with your order.  The masks are $7 each and come in small/medium which is usually for a female face, or large/extra large which is usually for a male face.  I also have custom masks for children according to their age.

Thank you to all the people who trusted me with these orders at this very difficult time.  Stay safe, and know that this all will end someday…even though it doesn’t seem like it right now!!
