Over 4000 masks later, my sister and I are still at it, making affordable (only $8 each) cotton masks to help protect people in this uncertain environment. They are washable and durable.
And because we believe masks should be either beautiful or fun — or both — we have sourced some interesting fabrics, things you won’t see everywhere. You can see them on this Flickr page. If you need a more sedate look for work, we have plainer fabrics as well.
I received my five masks from our Sara and Ann. They are top notch material, perfect ear loops that don’t make your ears look like they are fond of your cheeks. I’ve had plenty of compliments on my kitty fabric and then for my daisy fabric by my next door neighbor 5 year old fashionista. Please check them out and buy. These are just marvelous masks which you will “enjoy” for the near future.
We support our own. And, like me, when someone asks where you got your mask, tell them firstname.lastname@example.org.
My sister and I have a cottage business making catnip stuffed pads and toys for cats - Website here. They are called “Pootie Pads” because they were developed specifically for the Pootie Peeps, people who visit the twice daily PWB Peeps diaries here on Daily Kos — a politics- free oasis of silliness celebrating pets. Our products contain Oregon Tilth certified organic catnip and we use it generously! Additionally, we prewash our fabrics so they are free of any toxic sizing.
My sister has designed a new toy for Spring. It is an abstract shape. Like our “Purrmuda Triangle” toy, it has three sets of dangly ribbons. But it also has a top loop so, tied to a string, it can be used as a dangle toy. Here it is, on an inch grid for scale.
We will include a toy with each and every $35 of Pootie Pads purchased — this one, or if you prefer, a catnip tree (which has no dangly ribbons).
