Make a MASK with FABRIC TIES: https://youtu.be/dY3aS1L7S-4

NOTE: THIS MASK WILL NOT PREVENT YOU FROM CONTRACTING A RESPIRATORY ILLNESS!
Please visit CDC here on the proper use of homemade masks here:
https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-...

SUPPLIES:
2 pieces 100% cotton fabric 6" x 9"
1 piece cotton flannel or 100% Cotton Fabric 6" x 9"
2 elastic strips: 1/8" x 6” women, 7” men, 5” children
Kids size: make fabric 5”x7”, and elastic 5” long.

OUT OF ELASTIC? Use ribbon or fabric ties 18”-20” in length.
See my video on how to make a mask with fabric ties here: https://youtu.be/dY3aS1L7S-4

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. :)

*** 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 sewists, this is a great way we can band together and make a huge difference in this time of need!

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, they can help reduce the spread of large particles when someone sneezes or coughs.
