Mouth/medical/surgical mask is in great demand. Prices of a basic medical mask are now at least fivefold in shops.
In various countries, government as are now recommending to use homemade masks as they are cheaper and reusable.
Youtube is full of how to make but very confusing. There is no clear template or proforma design of how to make them.
Is there any proforma/template/design to how to make face masks?
How to make a homemade mouth/medical mask?
Step -1: Get a cloth
Cut out two rectangles of cotton fabric based on your requirements. The standard measurement is around 10-by/6 inches. You can use cotton or your old T-shirt fabric. Stack the two rectangles and stick them together to make a single piece of fabric.
Step-2: Cut in rectangles
You then fold over the long sides around ¼ inch and hem. Once done, then fold the double-layer of fabric over ½ inch along the short sides and stitch them down.
Step -3: Sew it
For ear loop, you can run a 6-inch length of 1/8-inch wide elastic across the wider hem on both sides of the cloth face covering. Tie the ends tight. You can also use hair ties or elastic headbands.
Step-4: Put elastic and sew it
Then pull on the elastic so that the knots are tucked inside the hem. Assemble the sides of the cloth face covering on the elastic and adjust so the mask fits your face. Finally, stitch the elastic in place to keep it from slipping.
