DIY FABRIC FACE MASK

As more and more states across the US mandate the wearing of face coverings in public spaces, especially where maintaining safe social distancing is not possible, making your own mask is a great way to save money, keep disposable masks out of landfills, all while protecting yourself and others from coronavirus.

I found this great tutorial, which I followed using some leftover fabric from this project I did earlier.

Stay safe, friends!

DIY FABRIC FACE MASK

MATERIALS

  • sewing machine
  • scissors

  • straight pins or mini clothespins
  • safety pin
  • cotton fabric (fat quarters are great for this project)
  • pipe cleaners

      Thanks for this. I was looking for a tutorial that wasn’t too complicated and this looks pretty straightforward.

    2. We just did this a few weeks ago, although we used the tutorial from the British-sounding lady, not the Better Homes and Gardens one. We are in Canada and we’ve been using our homemade masks for quite a while now!
      Thx for posting this.
