COVID-19 is mainly transmitted through breathing in infected respiratory droplets. Wearing face masks prevents healthy people from inhaling infected respiratory droplets. Wearing masks also prevents infected people from exhaling their infected respiratory droplets out into the air when they cough, sneeze or talk. Touching our mouth, nose, or eyes after touching a surface contaminated with live virus can also infect us. Wearing face masks prevents infected people from contaminating commonly touched surfaces when they cough or sneeze on it.
Over the past 3 months, we’ve been sewing up a storm of fabric face masks for family, friends, and the community. After sewing countless masks and perfecting our design and instructions, we figured it was time to make our Sewing Tutorial shareable. It’s a sort of video/slide experience that’s fun to follow along with as you sew a mask with us: https://youtu.be/D8OYuOkUiEo.
We hope our Fabric Face Mask Tutorial inspires you to make masks for yourself, your family, and your community. These fabric masks are not N-95 Masks, but they're washable and reusable. And, together with social distancing, frequent hand washing, not touching our face, and disinfecting commonly touched surfaces often, we can stay healthy and safe during this pandemic.
Stay Well and Sew On,
