The Bini Mask is a contoured face mask in a standard size created to give the wearer more breathing room. The Bini can use either the neck strap method creating a tension-seal over the bridge of the nose with easy pull-down tabs for fewer face-touch-points. The Bini also has an elastic ear or head loops with side self-ruching option.
The Quinn Mask is a contoured face mask created with extra room for those who need an XL size and/or need to cover a beard. Quinn uses a neck strap method, tension-sealing over the bridge of the nose, with easy pull-down tabs for fewer face-touch-points.
The Bini and Quinn Masks are intermediate sewing patterns.
