I took advantage of the provided videos. It sewed up quickly and easily.

I like the sizing

I haven’t yet made this mask but getting a good fit with the right size is very important to keep a good seal while being able to speak and breathe. So I appreciate a size-customizable pattern!
I have yet to find a mask design that truly prevents air leakage around the nose. Nose wires help but do not adequately prevent leakage. It is not just a matter of fogging up glasses, it’s allowing unfiltered air to get around the mask. I am working on adding felt or other padding to the sides of the nose to fill the gap. If others have nose-gap solutions beyond nose wires that are built into the design of the mask I would love to know about them!
I am currently sewing two layers of non-woven, non-fusible, washable mid-weight interfacing into my masks to avoid having to deal with disposable filters.

Great Mask Pattern!

I love the fit of this mask. It's easy to sew, with an option for an insert and various ties. Awesome pattern, thanks Lisa.

Great pattern

Although not made yet, I’ve read through the instructions and they are very clear and precise. Hoping to make some masks this week

Fantastic pattern, easy and fast to make, great to wear

This mask is great, easy to sew, instructions super clear. Love that you can add a filter.

I have been making the small for the children in my family and they love the spiderman print I used.

I have an Apple Mac and printing the correct size of the pattern needed some working out - I had to customise the size to 100% - easy when you know and the 1" and 2cm were the exact size.

Two hours of fun on the sewing machine

At long last - I got to make the panel masks, so quick, so easy and they fit perfectly. Thank you Twig & Tale for fabulous pattern and great instructions. I did Large and Medium. Got us covered for the time being. Now on the hunt for some more fun fabrics so I can make more.

Excellent pattern and easy to follow instructions, great mask with lots of options. I haven't sewn in years and am thrilled with my custom made mask. Thank you so much!
