May 12, 2021
Get the crafty you out! and try your hands on making a face mask at home.
Needle and Thread
Sewing machine (if available)
Rubber band or Elastic
Try using 100% cotton material.
T-shirts, handkerchiefs, scarves, and even bandannas can be used.
Tips on choosing fabric for the mask
Draw the cutout of the mask on a double cloth.
Cut the fabric into the shape of the mask.
Cut 4 pieces for 1 mask. Pair up 2 of the 4 pieces so that they are symmetrical.
Use pins to align the corners and edges of the mask (Before you start sewing).
Start with sewing the centers (curves that cover the nose) with thread and needle.
Place the elastic on one of the sides of the mask.
Make sure the rubber meets the edges and goes inside the mask.
At the edges you will see - one layer of mask, elastic, second layer of mask. Sew these layers so that they come together.
Repeat step 7 for the other side. Sew the mask from all sides, keep just one side open. Turn the mask inside out.
After inverting the mask, sew the remaining gap.
And your mask is ready to use!!!
