I have an OVERWHELMING amount of DMs and comments on all of my posts. I appreciate everyone support and donations while I sew as fast as I can. However, it is literally impossible for me to keep up with the 100s of places people are sending in their requests. Because of this, I have setup a system where you can go to my website and put in a request for the face mask covers. The reasoning for this is obviously to keep it more organized but also, we assume no liability for the wearing of these mask covers. These are not FDA approved, and I need those who are requesting them to submit to that. To put in a request, please CLICK ON THE LINK IN MY BIO. If you have already sent me a DM or submitted on my story, please go and do it again on my website. It really helps me keep it all under control! Thanks for your understanding!
The designer added, she also got requests from California, Arkansas, as well as New York. Additionally, Allen’s mentor Christian Siriano making masks due to the shortage.
