About Mum

Kia Ora! I'm the Mum behind the masks, my name is Penny.


I have always enjoyed making different types of crafts, from spinning to knitting, preserves and baking to cake decorating and scrapbooks.


My Mum always said "If it's something fiddly, it should be passed to me to do". With the pandemic affecting our day to day lives and with a little cajoling from my son, I have turned my hand to mask making.


I have adapted patterns into my own which I think fits comfortably, without needing constant adjusting while wearing. My fitted masks are a bit bigger than average with longer sides and a bigger face area for greater comfort and a better fit.


I really enjoy sewing and knitting clothes for babies and young children, so you may see those items pop up on this site from time to time as well. If you have a request such as cardies, booties, hats etc, you can always email me HERE


I have a small flock of coloured sheep, and spin the fleeces to create all sorts of all-natural woolly wonders. 


Sometimes you can find me at craft markets behind a stall selling all manner of things I make or grow in my garden.


I have two kids and three grandchildren, so you know I am a legit Mum. I love them all very much and thank them for their love and support in helping build this website and encouraging me to continue making things.


I really hope you like my masks, they fit you well and provide a stylish peace of mind that works for you.
