New Guide: How To Sew a Cotton Face Mask #facemask

face mask tutorial

We’ve posted a new tutorial: how to sew a cotton mask to help slow the spread of Covid19. This guide is aimed at beginners or non-sewers who are eager to learn.

From the guide:

Keep folks safe and stylish this spring by making your own cotton face mask. This guide details how to make a double layered face mask using a dish towel and part of a t-shirt. The mask is held on using two hair elastics.

The only other things you’ll need are a pair of scissors, a marker, and a needle and thread. If you have a sewing machine, it’s easy to use that instead of hand-sewing — but nobody should be lacking a fancy new mask because they don’t have fancy machine, so we’ve focused this guide on making the mask by hand.

Hand-sewing can be quite relaxing, so pull up your chair by the fire, thread your needle, and make masks for everyone in your family.

We’ve also included a few resources for places to donate your handmade masks.
