This face mask features a flexible nose wire to allow for a tight fit along the nose and the option to use bias strips or elastic.

It’s important to use a tightly woven 100% cotton fabric. If you’re not sure what tightly woven means hold it up to the light, you should not be able to see through it.

Please make sure that you prewash your fabric using a mild detergent and do not use fabric softener. This will help to shrink the fabric to prevent it from shrinking later on after it’s been sewn.

Once your masks have been donated, they should be washed and sanitized by the hospital before being put into use.

*Homemade masks will not prevent someone from becoming infected with Covid-19. They are approved by the CDC to be used as a last resort when all other PPE options have run out. Health providers experiencing shortages, who have handmade masks can use them on lower-risk patients allowing N95s to be reserved for emergency cases.
