How to Sew a DIY Protective Fabric Face Mask with Pattern and Printable Tutorial

Please join us to make these easy fabric face masks that can help against the spread of COVID-19 Coronavirus and protect those already infected and our healthcare workers, nurses and doctors!

For our free pattern and printable tutorial visit: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0240/3893/files/Face_Mask_TUTORIAL_and_PATTERN_web.pdf?v=1584828932

Many hospitals and health clinics are running low on medical supplies and these masks can be used as a last resort method. They help prevent the spread of germs by those who are sick by limiting the exposure area (when coughing or sneezing) and free up medical masks for healthcare workers. They are also washable! For details on this visit https://bit.ly/3bemciW and https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/eid/article/12/6/05-1468_article and the most interesting on how well these work: https://smartairfilters.com/en/blog/best-materials-make-diy-face-mask-virus/

You will need 100% cotton fabric and elastic.
Suggested supplies:
1 -100% cotton fabric, each mask uses two 6″x9″ pieces. The best method is to search “Fat Quarters” or “Fat Quarter Bundles” on Amazon
2 – Elastic: 1/8-1/4″ wide elastic (total of 14″ per mask). Our friends at Decorative Trimmings are shipping this free for mask makers! https://www.decorativetrimmings.com/white-14-inch-elastic-braid.htm
