Even before Charmed Life Tattoo, where Alicia works, closed down because of the pandemic, she had been doing embroidery work, drawing on her background in Fiber Arts. When social distancing became the norm in Kentucky, she couldn’t sit idle. So she googled patterns for face masks and made a few different kinds for her own family before settling on the pattern she uses now. She likes this one because it includes wire that can be molded over the nose and so it fits individual face shapes.

Alicia’s masks are free for essential and healthcare workers. She is asking all other folks for $10 donation per mask. Send her a PM directly if you are interested.
