During this difficult time we are using 100% cotton printed fabric to sew re-usable medical style face masks to donate to caregivers, hospital staff, first responders, and clinics that are in dire need of extra supplies. While our priority is to make these masks to donate to our local health care providers...
I have been asked if I can make some available for purchase to individuals. Each individual purchase helps cover the cost of supplies and shipping for the donated face masks. We appreciate the assistance so we can continue to help as many people as possible.
"Professional and Home-Made Face Masks reduce exposure to Respiratory Infections among the general population. N95 reduce exposure by 99%, surgical masks by 74%, 100% cotton cloth masks by 69%.
According to the CDC, fabric masks are a crisis response option when other supplies have been exhausted. Homemade masks should ideally be used in combination with a face shield that covers the entire front and sides of the face."
Masks are Adult one size fits most (pre sewn fabric square is approx 9.5" x 6.5") unless you select one of the 'child size options' and then they are approx. 1-2" shorter in width and up to 1" shorter in height. Approximately.
Elastic will vary by color and type since elastic is difficult to find at this time.
Each Mask already has a sewn in nose wire (pipe cleaner) to adjust for a tighter fit around the nose. The inside fabric is a solid cotton flannel, you will always know the front vs backside of the mask. This is important so you never put it on backwards and contaminate yourself. Masks can and SHOULD be washed and dried often! You can re-iron the pleats after drying if desired.
New Feedback Tip: Hand Wash & Line Dry helps to prevent the nose wire from sliding left or right, or poking through the fabric. Excessive washing will eventually wear out the fabric, Make sure you have enough masks to rotate so that they will last until we don't need them anymore :)
