DIY Fabric Face Masks

As things start to get more serious when it comes to protecting not only our own health, but the health of others – my mom and I decided to keep busy by making fabric face masks while we self isolate. (For me, it’s been important to keep my hands busy! Busy hands, calm mind, warm heart!)

We’ve recently purchased several yards of fabric and supplies to keep making more and we are donating to those in need, and to local organizations here in the Bow Valley. My mom even made her *first* video DIY Tutorial video that we posted to her Facebook Page!

For anyone interested and able to make masks, here is a quick tutorial! You don’t need a pattern, the starting square of fabric is 12.5” with serged edges. We are donating these to folks in need!! Happy sewing!! 🧵😷. #handmademask #cottonmask #canmore

We both agree we think it’s important to help where we can, and because we have these sewing skills and a lot of time on our hands – we are trying to help in this way. We know it’s not much but we hope that it helps a few people out!

If you have extra fabric, thread, or elastic we would welcome donations! We would also appreciate any donations to buy more fabric so we can make as many as needed! If you’re in a position to donate, please consider, no amount too small and it would be a huge help in purchasing more fabric and supplies.
