✂️DIY Face Mask Resources: Sew, No-Sew, Hacks & more

by Freebies4Mom on June 24, 2020 2:25 pm

In Houston I am watching positive cases rapidly rise and wearing a face mask in pubilc is required by my county so I wanted to share these resources with you again. You can make your own face mask (even if you don’t have a sewing machine)! Please share this post with friends, I hope it is a useful resource.

Face Mask with Filter Pocket

Face Mask with Filter Pocket

Face mask I am sewing with a filter pocket and using bias tape I made as the ties (or you can use ribbon). I like this pattern the best because of the secure fit, the filter pocket is the same size as the mask and the pattern was developed by consulting with a hospital employee.

Fabrics & Filters

Fabrics & Filters

Discover the best fabric to use to make a face mask. Plus what can you use to make a filter? This is how I discovered that reusable grocery bags can be used as filters (the material is similar to that used to make masks)

Ear Savers made with Cricut

I am making these Ear Savers from plastic school folders for my brother who has to wear a mask all day at work.

Make Bias Tape to use as Face Mask Ties

Make Bias Tape to use as Face Mask Ties

How to make bias tape from fabric. This is the best option to secure your face mask after I explored using elastic, hair ties and ribbon. Fabric is the easiest material to obtain (if you don’t have it, start cutting up tablecloths or bedding like duvet covers), it gives your face mask a more secure fit (it’s adjustable) and it resolves the issue of any discomfort due to elastic going over your ears.

Filter Materials for Face Masks

Filter Materials for Face Masks

Filter fabric I’m using plus a long list of different types of filters you can use. Add a filter to your mask whether it’s sewn or no-sew to provide extra protection.

🦠Participate in Critical Research, Download the Free COVID Symptom Tracker AppI’m using this app daily – are you? Join me in downloading the free COVID Symptom Tracker app on iTunes or COVID Symptom Tracker app on Google Play to participate in critical research conducted by Stanford University, Harvard University, Massachusetts General Hospital, and King’s College London. Every day you simply log your symptoms in the app (even if you are feeling well) to participate in the research. I learned about this new app from Dr. John Campbell, the “voice of reason” who is publishing daily videos about global coronavirus news. I hope you will join me and start participating in this app every day because the more people who use it, the more useful the information from it is to fight COVID-19.
