We could suggest using flannel fabric for a face mask because of its exceptional softness and warmth which is a perfect combination for a cold season. You won´t even need to add appliques or custom prints, the wide variety of seasonal colors and styles would be good enough to give you that special touch to compliment your outfit. Flannel printed options are so versatile and mixable that you just have to choose the one that you prefer and create your own-style face mask.

Lastly, but not least important, remember face mask’s main characteristic should be safety. Most of the face masks are composed of different layers and it requires at least one mask or muslin filters on the inside. Other than that, you can play with different fabric combinations such as spandex, denim, mesh, etc. Surprise your family and loved ones with a unique creation of your own, have a great time, and keep safe!
