Covid Masks

Back to Barbara Bridges Main Page

Covid Masks    Hand Made. One of a Kind.  $10.00- $40.00.  Thank you so much for helping support our project.  We give 50% of our masks away to essential workers who are once again marginalized because they can not afford designer masks! Pattern from Allina Health Care.

Pricing explanation. Frida fabric is very expensive, postage is $4.50, Cabochons are handmade and beading  is time intensive.  I am simply trying not to lose money.  Each mask has a pocket to insert a hepa filter-I use a square cut from vacuum bags.   Not included. Hand Wash.    Please reach out if we can create a custom mask for you or a friend. Your charms and your fabric. $40.00. Contact us to make masks for your serving  staff or  bridal party!  Contact me at drb@bridgescreate.com

All new masks include elastic which is tied in back with a ribbon which keeps mask from slipping and let’s you wear around neck for convenience.  Some matching Adult and Children pairs.   Click to enlarge. 

I have been fascinated with mask making for decades. I have around 50 masks from Mexico here in my bedroom (inspired by Frida, of course). I have created mask making lesson plans: http://recordari.com/ and visited Cajun country and was one of the first women to ride in Mardi Gras “Run for a Chicken” traditional parade. http://recordari.com/links.php?link=mask. People throughout history have always been drawn to wearing masks- they allow the wearer to adopt a different persona. It is seductive.

Now, however, the need for a mask is what we hope is a once in a generation necessity…. and not for a good reason. I have often wondered when I saw people in airports with masks on. Now I get it. I have been making masks and you can make them, too.

The Covid 19 virus attacks the elderly, the medically compromised from asthma, obesity etc, the poor, the incarcerated and the marginalized who are forced into crowded working conditions because if they do not work, they do not eat. You may not be at risk but they all are. What kind of person do you want to be? Thanks for keeping yourself and the people around you safe by wearing a mask.

Barbara’s Wonder Woman Mask and Covid Hair Solution


In the very timeworn opening lines from ‘A Tale of Two Cities’ seems apropos at the moment; “It was the best of times; it was  the worst of times…

We must figure out how to build resilience into our future endeavors – sooner or later some other catastrophic event will  radically alter our lives and we will confront untold challenges again – hopefully as more prepared citizens. The leading  attribute to being successful is adaptability. We are facing steep challenges as well as opportunities in every environment.   For yourself, be generous, notice small joys. Prepare more, worry less.

How to make a mask yourself.
