How To Sew A Face Mask

"Learn how to sew a face mask to keep yourself safe during these uncertain times. In the news the past few days, the announcers keep letting us know that at this point everyone should be wearing a mask to protect themselves and others in the community. If you have a sewing machine and have basic sewing skills, you can make this face mask. The basic pattern involves two layers of fabric, three 3 folds and elastic to go around the ears. No sewing machine? That is okay, you can hand sew this together too , it will just take longer.This is a super simple tutorial. It’s pretty much a rectangular piece of fabric with pleats and elastic on the side. The pleats help give the extra room needed to breath comfortably. "

NotesAlso includes the link to a video showing this air mask pattern being made.
