With a shortage of face masks due to corona virus, we thought we'd try and make ourselves a homemade mask, just in case. Using this simple, but shapely pattern, we whipped up our first mask in no time at all. As it was pretty straightforward, and with an abundance of fabric remnants in the workroom, we decided we should also make some for our family. Friends are now reaching out for masks as well.
If you are a maker, the pattern linked above is just one of many free to download from the internet. But if you don't have any sewing skills, please message us and we'll see what we can do.
Disclaimer: Please be mindful that this fabric face mask will not give you 100% protection from germs and other contaminants because of the loose fit between the surface of the face mask and your face. While it may help stop the spread of some germs, it is more of a reminder for us to not touch our face.
WASH BEFORE USE with warm soapy water and then hand wash the mask at the end of each day. It'll dry overnight.
