To make the BEST DIY face mask

For those of you making masks to donate, this video is full of information and a demonstration on types of fabric and lining for the best protection. Must watch!  Amazon is sold out, my Walmart is also, the fabric stores are closed, but Hobby Lobby has the Oly or the non woven interfacing to order.

The Fabric Patch.net also has two other videos, one just a short while ago, on the different types and another option for the nose bridge.  They offer the free pattern for the fitted mask.

I started making fitted masks and lining them with a thin cotton quilting batting but, after seeing so many videos on you tube with each thinking their way was the best, I just decided that I would just let all the experts make them!

and there is so much debate over how helpful these really are.

Marly I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I mean that. I just washed yards and yards of fabric yesterday for Children's Hospital of Wisconsin and for my Jacob. I find this video the BEST. This is the exact pattern I was going to make, BUT I was not going to add the Oly-Fun in the middle. Thank God He led you to show this to us all! I am going to our Hobby Lobby to get it today when they open. It is even on sale there I see! I am sewing these up for family, friends and many, many nurses now. Thank you dear friend!

Thank You so much for finding this! It is the best, most reasonable and efficient of any I have seen. Sadly, so many are making fabric masks that do not fit and do not filter. I have posted this as well. Take care, stay safe, be well.

Thanks so much, Marly! I am going to try my hand at these, too.
