Let's keep the medical face masks in the hands of those on the front lines! Get a washable, reusable fabric face mask for yourself for essential outings to grocery stores, pharmacies, etc or for those who have an essential job outside of a medical care facility.
Many facilities are beginning to require face masks to be worn (doctor's offices, etc) or faces to be covered in some way (scarf, etc). This is a convenient, washable, reusable option for those who may find themselves in situations where some kind of barrier is required or recommended.
I use tightly woven 100% cotton quilting fabric, which is what I have found to be most recommended for homemade face masks.
PLEASE NOTE: I am NOT an expert seamstress! I have only decided to produce these face masks in light of the current shortage and need, because I already possessed the materials necessary to create them.
There are some uneven edges, threads poking out, etc. I really have very little experience with sewing, and am trying to make as many as I can in a short amount of time so I am not attempting to make each mask perfect. They are only intended to "work".
Please do not leave a bad review because of my unprofessional craftsmanship. I really am only listing this because I have the supplies and there is a need. Also, to fund the donations that I am making.
I will also be donating as many masks as I can to a Kansas City area hospital as well, and your purchase helps make that possible.
There are 2 options:
- standard adult size $12
-standard child size $10
NOTE: these masks open folded-side-out. There will be a “V” shape on each side, widening out at the nose/mouth. The folds will pull over the nose and under the chin for a secure fit. If there is a print with a plain back, it is more obvious. I put the colorful prints on the outside.
The efficacy of your face mask is only as good as the manner in which you use it. If you touch your mask with your hands, you are potentially contaminating your mask. Therefore you should touch your mask as little as possible. When taking your mask on and off, only use clean hands and take it off by using the ties or ear loops. Your mask should be washed regularly with soap and hot water anytime you believe it may be contaminated. If you set your mask down, make sure you are placing it on a clean surface. We recommend you have multiple reusable masks so that you can swap them out as soon as they are contaminated.

* These masks will NOT protect you from Coronavirus!! They are in no way medical grade, and serve only as an extra barrier with the intent to keep YOUR germs to yourself.
*The CDC recommends the use of a homemade face mask such as what I'm offering here, or a bandana or scarf, ONLY as a last resort when medical grade options are not available. This is a good option for those who are not healthcare professionals so that we aren't wasting valuable resources.
