I would like to credit the following websites where I have found references to make these handmade masks. I'm happy to chat if you want to make your own masks and want to discuss!
Masks are made and sold as is, with no guarantees against disease prevention.
Special thanks to Underhill Geomatics for their generous donation which enabled me to purchase equipment and supplies.
