DIY Face Mask with Elastic: https://youtu.be/4FB–BOyTiU
2 pieces 100% cotton fabric 6″ x 9″ (You can also cut up old 100% cotton t-shirts!)
1 piece 100% cotton fabric for lining 6″ x 9″
4 fabric strips 1-1/2″ x 18″
Kids: make fabric 5″ x 7″
Adult female: 6″ x 9″
Adult Male: 7″ x 9″
Tip: Make sure not to sew over the loose end of the tie as you sew around the mask.
OPTIONAL: To make the nose are a fit better you can sew a wire ribbon, pipe cleaner, or baggie tie to the lining piece before sewing all three layers together and it would work nicely 🙂
*** Masks are re-usable, but must be sanitized before/after each use! ***
* Use tightly woven cotton fabric, or hospital grade material.
* Keep in mind men and women will be wearing the masks when choosing fabric for mask that will be donated.
* Contact local health facilities to see if they are in need of donations.
Currently, the supply of surgical masks is at a critical all-time low throughout the entire nation. As a community of crafters, this is a great way we can band together and make a huge difference in this time of need!
While handmade fabric face masks are NOT a substitution for N95 masks, you can read more from the CDC here on the use of homemade masks here:
In addition to helping medical staff during critical shortages, these masks can be used at home as well. While wearing homemade face masks will not prevent against catching a respiratory illness, if worn by someone who is sick they can help reduce the spread of large particles when they sneeze or cough.
