How to Make a Medical Face Mask
Hi Everyone, the times have found us as they say. I never thought 3 weeks ago that I would be writing a post like this but here we are. There are many hospitals in this country that are in dire need of face masks, right now, plus other Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Many crafty people are sewing masks not just for themselves but to donate to their local hospitals and organizations. You do not even have to be crafty, you just have to be able to follow a simple, step-by-step tutorial.
I know many healthcare professionals personally, from former school peers to family members and I know from the news that the need for PPE is great right now.
My mother-in-law, Linda, has been making face masks these past few days, at the time of my writing this and she had success with this YouTube tutorial video by Erica Arndt:
Joann Fabrics also has an extensive page on their website with tutorials and patterns, Here

I hope to work on one of these tutorial resources here soon with my daughter, in between homeschooling assignments and my regular blog work. If it works out, I will post the tutorial and process & final photos here with instructions. I’m out of practice with sewing but this is such a great and worthwhile thing to do for our country, let’s all get sewing!
I will update this post if I find more useful videos and/or resources.
