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!



  • sewing machine
  • scissors
  • iron
  • straight pins or mini clothespins
  • safety pin
  • cotton fabric (fat quarters are great for this project)
  • pipe cleaners
  • elastic or hair ties (these should be stretchy enough to reach the ears comfortably)
  • coffee filter

    1. 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.
