Keep Calm and Wash your Hands.
The big talk these days is germs and viruses, and since I have been a germophobe since long before all this, I thought I'd make some masks to help out.
Deaconess Hospital is recommending a pattern due to the shortage with COVID-19, so that is the one I am making for our local hospitals, if you’d like to help out here is the link with directions and tutorial. Its a fast pattern! I used cotton on the front and flannel on the inside for this version. Click HERE
I also found another great super easy face mask pattern and I tested it out with a few different fabrics for my family. I used all cotton for the outside and lining, but you can use fleece for the lining if you have some. I purchased the only size elastic cord that was available at my local Hobby Lobby and it worked great, and only a couple dollars, I made several. They are pretty fast and easy, one thing I will mention is when attaching the straps, I cut a piece between 6-8inches and sewed them into the seam when I did the fold. After doing a few of those, I then tried cutting the elastic cord about 9-10inches and just making a knot and tucking it inside the fold. You should try both ways and see what fit you like best.
Craft Passion put out this super easy and FREE pattern along with a tutorial back in 2013, and she's got some other cute patterns and blog posts too.
