If you have access to a sewing machine and an iron, you can help your friends, loved ones, and community by making fabric masks! We've put together a pre-cut package of materials that will make masks based on instructions released by Kaiser, who has also provided both written and video instructions as well as information on how to donate your finished mask if you choose to do so!
This kit makes masks that tie behind the head (no elastic). Included with the kit:
Enough pre-cut fabric to make 10 masks
A new Universal #80/12 sewing machine needle
A spool of thread
A note on your kit fabrics: All of the fabric we send you will be new, quilting weight 100% cotton. Unfortunately, due to the availability of supply, you will not be able to choose your fabrics or thread color. We will try to send you an assortment of different fun prints, though! Your order will ship in 3-5 business days by USPS.
Pre-Cut Face Mask Kits
"The C.D.C. has recommended that all Americans wear cloth masks if they go out in public. This is a shift in federal guidance reflecting new concerns that the coronavirus is being spread by infected people who have no symptoms. Until now, the C.D.C., like the W.H.O., has advised that ordinary people don’t need to wear masks unless they are sick and coughing. Part of the reason was to preserve medical-grade masks for health care workers who desperately need them at a time when they are in continuously short supply. Masks don’t replace hand washing and social distancing." - NY Times 4/4/20
