I never would have imagined a day that my designs would be used for face masks, but here we are. I understand the science, these are not surgical masks preserved for our health and care workers, and these masks won’t protect us from catching Covid19. BUT – there appears to be evidence that they may help stop transmitting the virus to others. To me it’s a no brainer, it makes sense that if everyone chose to wear a mask when outdoors, In turn we would all be better protected.
I really don’t want to wear a face mask, but if we need to do it I will, and if I’m going to do it – I’ll be doing it with some style!
I have spent a little time over the weekend enabling some of my unique patterns & abstract designs from my RedBubble Amanda Lakey store, I’ve also started enabling a few monogram and name designs from my RedBubble Pretty Personal store.
I think the girls name designs work especially well, as shown below. The Pretty Ink design set can be found here. There are 20 popular girls names, but the idea behind my Pretty Personal store is that you are able to request changes – or different names in this case. Just message me and it will be done.

The WHO and CDC have recommended wearing a cloth mask in public to help slow the spread of COVID-19. As a number of countries take the first steps to ease lockdown restrictions, some governments are also advising people to wear cloth masks when heading outside. Over the past few weeks, many artists have contacted us asking if we would be adding masks to Redbubble, so we wanted to let you know that they’re coming soon. By introducing masks, we hope to relieve some of the pressure on health services while supporting our artist community.
For every mask sold, we’ll be donating a mask to Heart to Heart International. Heart to Heart International works with volunteers, partners, and donors to make healthcare more accessible. They have launched international, domestic, and local responses to COVID-19.
Donated masks will be given to people who are in line for drive through testing, before they get to the testing station. They will also be used in hospitals and clinics for non-frontline workers, including administrative staff and hospital workers who are delivering food to patients.
Masks have two layers of washable 100% brushed woven polyester. The print is on the outer layer. They have over-ear elastic straps for a snug fit over mouth and nose. Masks come in one size and fit most adults.
These cloth face masks are not surgical masks, personal protective equipment, or N-95 respirators. Those critical resources are reserved for healthcare workers who are on the front lines. Cloth face coverings such as these can help slow the spread of COVID-19. They may help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others when coughing or sneezing.
Thanks for visiting. Stay safe everyone.
