How To Make A Face Mask – No Sew Easy Tutorial (Video)
The CDC is now recommending that we wear a face mask when we leave our house during quarantine. I haven’t used a sewing machine since I was in Girl Scouts in 6th grade, and while I can sew a button on a shirt that’s about as far as my sewing skills go. The good news is, I discovered a way to make a face mask that is a NO SEW option. It’s actually super easy, and can be done in just a couple of minutes.
I made you a video (below) to show you just how easy it is. The mask you see me making in the video is the actual one I wore out for my walk this afternoon.
All you’ll need is a square piece of fabric that is either 17.5 inches or 18 inches on each side, and a two hair bands. I cut my fabric from a piece of fabric I got in Bali during a yoga retreat with reiki master Kelsey Patel a couple of years ago, but you could use any fabric you have (you could even cut up an old shirt if you wanted, or use a handkerchief if you have one). The mask is reusable – put it in the washing machine as soon as you get home to sanitize between each use.
