This is a simple, fast, and free fitted mask with a nose wire for extra comfort and protection, all made from a T-shirt and a couple of paper clips. This is something that ANYONE can make. As an added bonus, since it’s so fast and free, you can make multiple masks to share with friends, family, neighbors, or make extra to keep in the wash.
We are all being encouraged to wear masks at all times when we leave the house or when dealing with a sick person in our homes, but everyone doesn’t have the ability to sew, access to a sewing machine, or the funds to purchase materials or already made masks.

Balancing the level of protection with the ability to wear it for longer periods of time, Cotton was the winner. Plus, it is easy to get and washable.
