TIP: If you are going to a high risk area (hospitals, nursing homes etc) I would wear a surgical or N95 mask underneath this one.
This is meant more for running errands, going to restaurants where you're still 6' apart, but need a face covering to enter.
Today's DIY is such an easy one and has been my go-to mask the last few weeks.
A face shield version of the mask converts to a scarf, headband when you done need it.
The biggest benefit I've noticed, is that I'm not losing them the way I'm losing my other masks because they stay on me.
The longest one can be folded in half with a space for a filter to go inside too!
Stretch Scrap Fabric
Scissors or Rotary Blade
Cutting mat and Ruler (optional)
Smallest Single Later Mask - 8" x 12"
Longer Single or Double Layer - 8" x 22"
Cowl Neck Version - 8"width on top, 15" width on bottom, 22" length
Cut your fabric into a 19" x 22" rectangle
Fold the fabric in half so it is 8.5" x 22"
Pin the length of the seam and sew with a leg zag or straight stitch.
If you use a knit fabric that doesn't fray you can just cut it clean with your rotary blade and skip the hemming.
If your fabric does fray, you'll want to hem your edges and use a serger to sew the seam.
