Sew simple: Making your own mask at home

Mass Appeal

(Mass Appeal) – The CDC suggested that people wear masks while going about their daily activities, so we invited West Springfield quilter Janet McDonald to join us with an overview of how to make a simple, sewed mask at home.

McDonald has made about 300 masks for people from her home. She makes three different sizes, for men, women, and children. She gets the dimensions and sewing instructions from the CDC website: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/diy-cloth-face-coverings.html.

Some masks have an opening that people can use to insert a coffee filter in for added protection.
