Non Medical Fabric Face Mask

I have designed this non medical fabric face mask following the Coronavirus pandemic, as stocks of surgical masks are limited (and should be available to those on the frontline). I have researched the potential difference wearing a homemade mask could have. According to SmartAirFilters.Com reusing t-shirts or tea towels, a two layered design could make circa 70% difference, compared to 97% if a surgical mask is worn. Still a huge improvement against not wearing a mask.

The pattern can be hand or machine sewn and takes approximately an hour. An hour well spent, if it helps prevent the spread of Covid-19.

As the face mask uses very little fabric, several mask can be made from one adult t-shirt or a tea towel. Fabric Face Mask

Stay safe everyone and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

By week days I am a Quantity Surveyor and at all other times I am sewing, knitting or crocheting, even on the banks of lakes whilst fishing (a little diverse, I know) My Mum taught me to knit at a young age, in fact, I can't remember not being able to knit. I started knitting dolls clothes and they required sewing. I was keen to develop my skills and went on to learn cross stitch and embroidery, but sewing clothing, bags, home furnishings and quilting are my absolute passion.
