*UPDATED: 40 DIY Face Masks Tutorials now including 13 DIY Face Mask & Face Shield Video Tutorials!
As this Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to get worse I have seen many of my family and friends making DIY Face Masks to use and to donate, and my heart is full with how people have come together to help each other. Michael’s donated 1 Million Dollars, Joanne Fabrics has been giving away free materials to make Masks to use and donate, other countries are sending medical supplies to help countries hit hardest, local communities are gathering scrap materials and sending them to those who have a sewing machine, donations are being made to hospitals, police, firemen and those on the front lines and it is just surreal to know that our entire planet is coming together to help each other. So if you are one of those people, we at YourSiteNeedsMe salute you. We appreciate you and send you our love and thanks.
Coronavirus DIY Face Mask Tutorials and Resources
DIY Face Masks tutorials have gone crazy online since the CDC recommended wearing cloth face coverings in public settings this week . So as small contribution, I have scoured the web for the best DIY Face Mask tutorials and resources, best DIY Face Mask videos, links, patterns and advice and links to where you can buy materials for your cloth face masks so you have a list of resources all in one place that you can use and share. These are all some of the best patterns & tutorials I could find online for different sorts of Cloth Face Masks & Face Shields and include options for a pocket so you can add a filter, No-Sew versions, No Fog for people with glasses, Kids Face Masks, Face Masks of all shapes and sizes (even Fashion Face Masks) and even Protective Face Shields. Please note that these are NOT MEDICAL GRADE options and will not replace an N95 PPE. Be sure to share this post with your friends and family and ask them to share it. Let’s get this info out to everyone who needs it or wants it.
