Thanks for the link, it's been ages since I bought elastic but that's 22 yards total, so sounds like a good price especially since it's a little different than the usual 'sewing stuff'.

I made 2 sets of masks for me and DH, one set has elastic around each ear ('usual sewing stuff' left over from other sewing projects), the other was originally 2 ties but I 'retrofitted' to a method I read about later with 1 strip that acts like 2 ties, but also gathers up the sides (if you want) to fit better.  It's close to a toss-up, but I'm sort of thinking I like the second style a little bit better since you can tie it once and then pull it down around your neck and pull it back up when you need it again (I wear it when I get out of the car but take it off to drive since any style seems to fog my glasses once in a while).  This shows the concept - for the ties I used a strip 2' long, 1" wide cut from an old T-shirt - it curls around lengthwise to look like a skinny cord, doesn't unravel, and is a little stretchy.
