This fitted mask is a small/child size for ages 7 - 12 years.
**An under 7 years teeny tiny size can be created on request. (11.5cm x 16.5cm). The mask does not have the mouldable metal nose piece buit in, but the ear loops are adjustable.**
Small/child size is approximately 12.5cm from top to bottom down the nose and 19cm wide across the bottom. It has a layer of cotton fabric on the outside, another layer on the face side and two layers of non woven interfacing inside (sew in not iron on), 4 layers in total. The mask is a cup shape that goes around your face and hooks over the ears with elastic (approximately 12cm each side). I’ve added pleats at the sides so it fits more snugly against your face. There is a metal piece sewn into the mask so it can be moulded across the bridge of your nose.
The elastic is not adjustable. If the mask is slightly too large for your child, fold the elastic over near the mask edge and put a couple of stitches through it. (Make sure the fold in the elastic is not behind the ear as this may make it uncomfortable to wear.)
See 'Fitted Face Mask' section for all other colours currently available. I can adjust any of these to the small/child size. Fabric pattern placements will vary.
