Homemade face mask

With the new recommendations to wear face masks meeting a shortage of masks, I decided to bust out my mini sewing machine and make some DIY masks. Luckily the internet is full of wisdom on this matter – Anjurisa’s video “How To Make A Fabric Face Mask At Home Easy” on YouTube offers an excellent design for beginners (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_6UcIDaxfqk). For my masks I used the same square-pleated design with around-the-head elastic (rather than around-the-ears) and wire nose bridge. The only material I was ready to commit to this project was tee-shirt jersey knit fabric so the result was comfortable even though the sewing was difficult!
