With Spider-Man, Bluey and unicorns splashed across them, Mollymook woman Lauren Martin has nailed the brief for children's face masks.
While they're not mandatory for children under 12, the talented seamstress has seen an increase in parents seeking masks for their children recently.
Lauren said the fully adjustable, soft masks have been well-received.
"They're not mandatory but I simply have been giving them the choice," Lauren said.
"Parents are raving about the quality and thanking me for providing locally, well made masks that fit the age bracket."
The mother of three started the face mask side business as a way to supplement her income when her shifts at a local school were cut when NSW was in lockdown last year.
Lauren works as a student learning support officer at Ulladulla High School but comes from a 20-year graphic design background and had her own sewing business for eight years.
Her beard friendly face masks have already been a hit. Lauren's masks are both tripled stitched and layered, with the most absorbent layer of fabric the one that is closest to the wearer's face.
Lauren made 1500 masks in 2020 and has made even more in 2021.
Children's masks are $15. Send Lauren a message via Facebook for details and what's available. Payment is via direct debit and postage is the same day.
