We highly recommend using 100% cotton fabrics for face masks. For face masks in particular, all fabrics should be pre-washed at 60C / 140F or higher prior to sewing and after each use. Please check fabric care specifications particularly for colours and prints prior to washing.
Here at House of Adorn, we have created a DIY sewing kit with everything you require to make these practical face masks. The kit includes a pattern (with three sizes), cotton fabric for the outer and inner layer, cotton lining for the filter pocket, and elastics for attachment. We also have wire products that are suitable for the nose ridge if you wish to make a mask that has more contouring around the nose and cheek area.
This is not a medical/surgical grade mask and should not be used for health reasons without consulting a health care professional. They are ideal for casual use and house-hold activities, and a good reminder not to touch your nose and mouth.
