Attaching them....

There's a tool that you can buy to attach the silicone adjuster that I just posted about.  It looks like a small crochet hook, but I came up with an easy way using a small paper clip. 

1.      Use a small paper clip. 
2.      Open it up. 
3.      The smaller loop will be the hook so give that a pinch, but don’t close it all the way
4.      Open up the larger loop 
5.      Put your silicone adjuster through the larger hole (first) on the larger loop.  
6.      Hook the elastic or cord through the smaller loop. 
7.      Push the adjuster through toward the elastic. 
8.     Pull it through 
9.     That's it!  You're done! 

You can also use a needle & thread like this:

Bobbie pins work great too! Happy Mask Making!  Be safe!

Mask Making Mania!

Hey There!

Its been awhile.  I hope everyone is doing well and is safe.  I have been making nothing but masks since April.  I'm in Southern California so masks are required everywhere we go.  I have been making masks for family and friends and even sold a few online....

So I recently came across these.

A friend of mine has a supplier overseas and was able to find them for me.  If any of you are making masks, you'll know that these are a "GAME CHANGER".  You end up with a perfect fit.

I have 2 styles:  spiral & flat that work great with 1/4" elastic.  They don't work so great with 1/8" elastic.  It's too thin so they tend to slip off.

Sorry!  I set some aside for you guys but those are all sold out!  I'll post if I get some more.
