Asbury’s Quilting Ministry has been busy making fabric masks for healthcare workers. Now that the CDC recommends that we ALL wear a mask, here are two ways you can make your own—with or without a sewing machine! What about fabric? Cotton t-shirt fabric works perfectly—it’s a great way to repurpose a t-shirt you rarely wear. If you use new fabric, be sure to wash it first. Have fun being creative!
Several no-sew mask patterns are available on YouTube. Here is one from the surgeon general’s office: https://youtu.be/PI1GxNjAjlw
Here is a pattern (and video instructions) for a no-sew mask and a machine stitched mask. This pattern provides a pocket for an optional filter and instructions for fabric ties if you don’t have elastic. Go to sarahmaker.com.
