Get the crafty you out! and try your hands on making a face mask at home.
Things Required:
  • Fabric
  • Scissors
  • Needle and Thread
  • Sewing machine (if available)
  • Rubber band or Elastic
  • Ruler
Tips on choosing fabric for the mask
  • Try using 100% cotton material.
  • T-shirts, handkerchiefs, scarves, and even bandannas can be used.
Procedure:
Step: 1 Draw the cutout of the mask on a double cloth.
Step 2: Cut the fabric into the shape of the mask.
Step 3: Cut 4 pieces for 1 mask. Pair up 2 of the 4 pieces so that they are symmetrical.
Step 4: Use pins to align the corners and edges of the mask (Before you start sewing).
Step 5: Start with sewing the centers (curves that cover the nose) with thread and needle.
Step 6: Place the elastic on one of the sides of the mask.
Note: Make sure the rubber meets the edges and goes inside the mask.
Step 7: At the edges you will see -- one layer of mask, elastic, second layer of mask. 
Sew these layers so that they come together.
Step 8: Repeat step 7 for the other side. Sew the mask from all sides, keep just one side open. Turn the mask inside out.
Step 9: After inverting the mask, sew the remaining gap. 
And your mask is ready to use!!!
