Last week, the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) began advising everyone to wear face masks in public. 

Surgical masks aren’t ideal for hospital use with COVID-19 because they allow tiny droplets to seep in through parts of the mask, but they’re helpful for those of us venturing out in public to buy groceries or run errands.

To help even the most craft-impaired, we offer this no-sew mask tutorial that requires only a T-shirt and scissors.  A study of homemade face masks by SmartAirFilters.com found that cotton T-shirts and cotton pillowcases are the best at-home materials for making DIY face masks, based on their ability to capture particles yet remain breathable, and that they perform comparably to surgical-grade masks.

When making your mask, please keep in mind that the edges of the mask should fit snuggly against the skin. Happy Crafting!
