I knew it was a mask kit but I was expecting some instructions. There was zero information in the bag. No link to where I can find them. Other reviews have said instructions are on the site but I haven’t found them yet. So I have no idea what I think of the masks because I haven’t made them yet. I’ve made masks before but since I don’t know what pattern these were cut for I haven’t spent the time to measure and try to guess the pattern.
I mean these have been fun to make... it I ordered a second time and the fabric was changed up on us. It was a lighter fabric - harder time crease for sure, the lighter fabric was nice but I really enjoyed the stiffer canvas material in my first order. I got used to seeing it and had to get used to seeing the lighter fabric. Great kit though!
The masks were shipped and received in a very timely fashion. They were packed very well, looked even better than I hoped for. They were simple to finish and work exceptionally well.
The actual mask fabric is stiff, making it difficult to fold over, so I chose to leave the edges raw. As reported by others, the ribbon/binding is very thin, and difficult to tie. I ended up using some fabric I had on hand to finish the edges, and used a cord lock to secure the tie in back of the head. Normally, RBTR is my favorite “go to” place, but this didn’t quite work out. I will continue to use RBTR for my outdoors sewing needs.
I did choose to use it with a different pattern and lined with cotton for comfort.
