APRIL | DIY Fabric Mask
We're in an entire new world now. Last week the CDC advised us to wear a cloth mask or some form of facial covering to help protect us and others while making a trip to the market, bank or when physical distancing is not possible. When we started the "Shelter in place" in March I knew I needed to get out my handy sewing machine and start to create cloth face masks, non-medical. There is a shortage of medical PPE and we want to save them for Health Care Workers.
I've used the basic Pleated Pattern from Vanderbilt University with an addition of a dart at the chin and wire at the bridge of the nose that can be molded to your face. I find it holds the mask closer so you can see easier.
Here's a DIY for a fabric mask. We're all in this together!
What you'll need:
Two 7” pieces of 1/4 inch elastic or similar.
You can make two sizes: Adult (shown) or Child 7.5 x 5.
