Make a MASK with FABRIC TIES: alvid.info/video/m5FomrZhrZmGkJg.html
Please visit CDC here on the proper use of homemade masks here:
2 pieces 100% cotton fabric: 6" x 9" (You can also cut up old 100% cotton t-shirts!)
1 piece cotton flannel for the lining OR 100% COTTON FABRIC: 6" x 9"
2 elastic strips: 1/8" x 6” women, 7” men, 5.5” children
7" x 9" - adult male with 7" elastic straps
6" x 9" - adult female with 6" elastic straps
5" x 7" - child size with 5.5" elastic straps
OUT OF ELASTIC? Use ribbon or fabric ties 18”-20” in length.
See my video on how to make a mask with fabric ties here: alvid.info/video/m5FomrZhrZmGkJg.html
OPTIONAL: To make the nose are a fit better you can sew a wire ribbon, pipe cleaner, or baggie tie to the lining piece before sewing all three layers together. :)
*** Masks are re-usable, but must be sanitized before/after each use! Machine wash warm and tumble dry low. ***
* Use tightly woven cotton fabric, or hospital grade material.
* Keep in mind men and women will be wearing the masks when choosing fabric for mask that will be donated.
* Contact local health facilities to see if they are in need of donations.

Currently, the supply of surgical masks is at a critical all-time low throughout the entire nation. As a community of sewists, this is a great way we can band together and make a huge difference in this time of need!
In addition to helping medical staff during critical shortages, these masks can be used at home as well. While wearing homemade face masks will not prevent against catching a respiratory illness, they can help reduce the spread of large particles when someone sneezes or coughs.
* Fabric: 100% Cotton Quilting Fabric (I used a line from Bonnie and Camille for Moda)
* Juki TL2000 Qi: amzn.to/2MYdOZu
* Aurifil 50wt Thread: amzn.to/33gN1Af
* Oliso Pro Smart Iron: amzn.to/2ZbppJE

I haven't sewn for a long time, don't know if I can even start my sewing machine LOL. It really looks easy, I might do it by hand & see how it comes out, I'm a Home Health Nurse, I do home visit, I think this would work for me. Thanks

Yeah I’m sewing by hand because all sewing machines are sold out. I ordered a hand one online won’t be here till next week & im pregnant with a crappy immense system so I’m making one by hand. I messed up & put the elastic facing out instead of in so the one side was the wrong way when I turned it inside out! Noooooooo!!!

I just tried to do this with all fabric & by hand. I've gotta say even though one of my straps broke loose it didn't look that bad considering I have no clue what I'm doing. I originally wanted to make one for myself & if it turned out ok make several & donate them. Well that's obviously not gonna happen just yet but I've at least found a hobby to keep me occupied rather than watching the news & social media & stressing myself out even more so. I've got to hand it to all those that sew it takes extreme paitance for this. I would say it isn't easy but that's only because I'm new to it. I'm not giving up though. Challenge accepted😊.

"5 minutes"? 5 hours is more like it. First of all cutting the material is a very tedious process, then you don't stress enough to make sure the handles are facing inward, (and you should!) as the first one I did came out wrong (the handles were inside when I turned it inside out asI had them facing outward when I pinned). Also, good luck finding the materials. The only fabric I could find, were precut packages in Walmarts. No one to cut the flannel, so I had to settle for a cotton jersey which doesn't hold the folds. And elastic? All gone. Just happened to have enough to make one mask and it will be several months before I can get more I'm sure. All the craft stores are closed. Finally, compared to the few medical masks I have, I don't think they cover the face very well, especially the nose to chin. Maybe it should be 6.5-7 x 9?

Thank you so much for making such a simple, easy to follow tutorial! I’ve been struggling with other tutorials figuring out how to make the pleats (I’m just a little challenged haha) and this is the first one that’s made me feel like I can do this no problem! You’re awesome ❤️

I just finished my first mask! Have NO sewing machine so did it by hand. Had 1/2" elastic that I cut in half...worked great! Instead of stitching straight around (which I could not do) I did a Blanket stitch by hand all the way around, which will hold all in place and actually looks very nice. First one took me 1 1/2 hrs but now that I've figured out how to work around my issue of NO SEWING MACHINE! Your directions are very clear and easy to follow...thank you!
Sadie Ditë më parë
Should have a added a thin metal piece for the nose area to tighten around it and have a tighter seal. Nonetheless, still neat.

I am a Respiratory therapist and I am warning people not to think that these type of mask will help. They will not. A mask has to be able to keep viral particles from penetrating throw a face mask. N95 are made for that purpose. A cloth on your face will not stop people from inhaling the particles. It will go straight through the cloth. I know something is better than nothing but these are going to become a disaster when people find that they are being infected even though they put on these cloth mask. Facts about cloth masks Despite their good intentions, the simple fact is that home-sown cloth masks are nearly useless in protecting against the virus, as Wirecutter reports, and should only be a very last resort for practitioners in the field. In the age of coronavirus, personal protective equipment (PPEs) like surgical masks, gloves, and face shields are becoming increasingly hard to come by. And that’s really bad news: without healthy healthcare workers, no treatment. No treatment, more deaths. “Homemade face masks are not considered [PPEs], and should be an option only when there are absolutely no respirators or face masks left, and used with other protective equipment, such as face shields,” CDC spokesperson Arleen Porcell told Wirecutter in an email. “It’s important to note that this strategy is considered a last resort and does not adhere to the typical standards of care in the US, but acknowledges the hard realities on the ground,” Porcell added. The best case scenario for practitioners remains to be N95-certified respirator masks, as they catch more than 95 percent of particulates. Surgical masks simply create a physical barrier and don’t seal. Studies have confirmed the fact that homemade cloth masks are pretty terrible at catching viruses. A 2013 Cambridge University study found that tea towels and vacuum cleaner bags were far closer to the effectiveness of actual surgical masks in blocking a certain type of virus.

Been looking at several mask tutorial videos today and I have to say this is the best one. Clear, easy to follow directions and well done. Plus she adds the flannel in the middle. And she presses. I'm not a great sewer, mostly grocery bags, sunglass cases, easy stuff, but it drives me nuts when people don't press! LOL Ya gotta press. Stay healthy everyone.

You don't need flannel. You can just use two layers of good quality cotton, preferably different colours or patterns so you can tell which side is which.

I think it's a great tutorial. Easy instructions and I made a mask. I find it very big with open gaps around my nose and by my ears... is there something I can do to prevent this? The mask would serve no purpose with open gaps like that unless I put it over a N95. thanks tips are welcome pls!

I have made almost 40 masks for my daughter, her co-workers and their families. They are NOT a "five-minute" project! Just for fun I timed my last batch: I do them "assembly line" fashion and each mask takes me approximately 30 minutes to make. Time well spent...but let's be honest!!

Hi Cissie, we made ours in about 5 minutes when making one mask. Of course 40 will take quite a bit longer :) And you'll get faster as you go! Thanks for helping out in this way!

2 tips: 1- I made 2 darts at the top on the left and right sides, about 1/4” each. 2- I used T shirt yarn (google it) instead of elastic for the ear loops. Knot it where it feels comfortable. You’d think the knot would be uncomfortable but it’s not.
