by Freebies4Mom on July 25, 2020 9:20 am

😷4 Free Ear Savers from DeltaDelta, the company that makes faucet, is giving you 4 free ear savers to use with your face masks. My brother wears a mask every day at his job, so I’ve heard from him how the face masks that go over your ears can really irritate your skin. This is a great solution, so I wanted to share it! Delta will mail your ear savers within 5 business days. Thanks goes to I Crave Freebies for sharing!

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 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.

✂️DIY Face Masks: Fabrics & Filters

by Freebies4Mom on May 5, 2020 4:04 pm

✂️DIY Face Masks: Fabrics & FiltersI 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 the cotton face masks I am sewing.

Be sure to checkout my DIY Face Mask Resources post that rounds up everything I’ve shared to help you make your own face masks (with or without a sewing machine).

✂️Make Ear Savers using your Cricut

by Freebies4Mom on April 21, 2020 6:00 pm

✂️Make Ear Savers using your CricutGet 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 using my new Cricut and followed Angie’s instructions to start manufacturing Ear Savers to go along with the fabric masks I’m making with elastic ear loops (yes, I switched to a new pattern).
