How to Make a Fabric Mask without a Sewing Machine



Since the CDC has recommended that all Americans should wear a face mask or face covering while in public, this video offers step-by-step instructions for how to make fabric face masks for yourself and your family without a sewing machine and without elastic. There are two quick and easy ways to do this: the first is a low-sew method that only requires fabric and a needle and thread. The second alternative is a no-sew method that uses safety pins instead of a needle and thread. Both methods use fabric ties instead of elastic and will allow you to make face coverings to keep you and your family safe during the COVID-19 crisis.
