Sewing Face Masks At Home: Upcycle Fabric Scraps!

For sewing face masks at home you can very easily upcycle old fabric scraps! As there are face mask patterns designed for both stretch and non-stretch fabrics, you’re sure to have something laying around the house that would be appropriate. Some of the best options are:
  1. old cotton bedsheets
  2. worn out t-shirts
  3. old pillow cases
  4. or any cotton/linen/or jersey fabric that can be washed above 60°. This is an important consideration as you’ll need to be able to reliably sterilize your masks after you wear them!
