Yesterday, the facility my mom is at requested masks, but they are not the only ones. Hospitals (and nursing homes) are in short supply of protective equipment and some have begun requesting that those who sew make some. So, today’s post are some of the links you can use to make your own. If you decide to sew for a particular organization, you’ll want to check to see if they have specific requirements as to which pattern (or interfacing – which provides somewhat of a filter) to use.
- Deaconess hospital is asking sewists to use this tutorial to make face masks (other hospitals may reference this as well). They also provided a video tutorial to go along with this as well.
- Katie doesn’t just make great clothes, she’s a doctor too! She came up with this surgical facemask for teens and adults.
- Freesewing.org has their own face mask version that resembles those you see in Japan (they look very fashionable).
- A video tutorial on how to make a surgical mask. The doctor who is running the #MillionMasksADay challenge has linked to this one.
- This video is not in English, but is pretty clear cut as to how to put it together.
- This mask has a pocket to easily remove your filter. I had originally posted this in a Linky Thursday, but have since seen that most facilities are recommending using a non-woven interfacing as a “filter”.
