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.
DIY Face Mask Resources
I like this post by Jennifer Maker that helps you determine the best fabric for your DIY Face Mask and it also talks about filter fabrics. After reading it, I decided to switch from using a 30 MERV air filter as filter fabric to using fabric-like reusable grocery bags. I’m simply cutting up the resuable grocery bags I have and inserting them into […]
Get a free SVG file to make Ear Savers from plastic school folders. Thanks to The Country Chic Cottage I was inspired by her post to buy a Cricut Explore Air 2 just so I could make Ear Savers for my brother who has to wear a mask all day at work. So I took a crash course on […]

Another great no-sew face mask instructions to share with you thanks to Jennifer Maker. This one is awesome because it uses a unique t-shirt fabric pattern so that you don’t need elastic, ribbon or hair ties because it uses fabric ear loops. You can also add a filter to this no-sew face mask.
If you […]
My friend Jeanne published a video on how to cut a face mask to sew using a Brother ScanNCut. I know some of my readers may have a Brother ScanNCut so I wanted to share this video!
