In addition to every else I’ve been trying to take care of for Burning Man, I’ve been making these zippered masks like crazy. I actually really love it: the fabric is mostly scraps from bigger projects, it’s the perfect use for small bits of elastic, and the hand-stitching is a form of meditation in my otherwise hectic life. Plus, honestly, the sales make me euphoric!
They are all trimmed in fold-over elastic, and have adjustable elastic straps to keep them securely on. The zippers, like I mentioned, are sewn by hand with some bright embroidery thread. Lately I’ve been mixing up the zippers by cutting the head off one and putting it on the teeth of another, so that both parts are different colors. And now I can’t stop doing it!
Trust me, I know, it’s A LOT of masks!
Delightfully, most of these have sold already but I am constantly making more. If you’d like a particular color combo feel free to send me an email about it, and you can see what I do have available in my Etsy shop!
