Plain Face Mask Pattern


Thanks to everyone who is going to start sewing these very simple face masks.

I find the patterns to be small but easy to adapt.

I am using ribbons for ties as Nurses and Home Care workers are saying they cant stand elastic behind their ears.

The best fabric to use is Zep Blue industrial towels as they filter 95% fine particles. None available now but other Industrial Towels are better than cotton. These are hand washable and lay flat to dry. Don't use a dryer. If you use elastic it will melt and if you use ribbons or tape they'll just shrivel and curl. 

Thanks so much for mobilizing!

Warmly, 

Carol
