You Will Need
¨ Small amount of stretch fabric, cotton or cotton mix is best. You can use a different fabric for the lining if required. You can use an old T shirt or similar.
¨ Small amount of elastic. I used 2.5 mm round—available on Amazon or recycle it from old garments.
¨ Optional: 1 pipe cleaner to create nose shaping. (You will need more for replacements). Don’t use these on masks for very small children and continually check to make sure the wire ends are not poking through the fabric.
¨ Optional: filter fabric. You can use tea towel or pillowcase—these are closely woven cotton fabrics. Also non woven fabrics such as kitchen paper towel, interfacing, vacuum cleaner bags, coffee filters, etc, see the various articles online and always make sure that breathing through the filter remains easy. Cut these to fit inside your mask.
¨ This mask can be hand sewn or worked on a machine.
