How to SEW a MEDICAL face MASK with ties instead of elastic. These masks sew together very quick and don’t require any elastic since you will create ties instead. Let me know if you have any questions or if you have a request for another style of mask. Surgical face masks are in high demand right now. If you are making these to donate to hospitals, thank you. It is greatly appreciated.
