Homemade Face Masks


I’ve been making fabric face masks for a few weeks now.  I do this mostly on the weekends when I’m not at work and have more time.  They are going just as fast as I can make them.  Today I took half a dozen into a local pharmacy and the girls there about cried because they were so happy to have them.

I’m not on the front lines of the COVID-19 horror, thank heavens.  I think that we all have an obligation to do what we can.  This I can do.  I’ve asked my co-workers for fabric donations and have had a good response.

With the change in attitude about whether or not we should wear face masks in public, it won’t be long before it will be mandatory in the US.  These masks will also ease the demand for medical masks needed for health care workers.

If you Google homemade face masks, you’ll find lots of different patterns.  YouTube also has some good how-to videos.

If we all pitch in and do what we can to get through this, it will be less painful for everyone and be over with sooner rather than later.

Stay Safe, Stay Well and Stay Home.

Thank you for joining me on this journey.  Penny ❤

  1. Thank you for making these masks. I need to ask a local seamstress friend or family member to make fabric masks for Randy and me. I have a sewing machine, but have not used in in years, thus don’t know if it works. And I have no elastic and don’t want to shop for any. Bless you for your work.
