Dear Creative Family,

Help and support medical personnel needs during the Covid-19 outbreak.

THIS IS NOT FASHION, THIS IS FUNCTION – a great way to contribute during this worldwide tragedy.

If you haven’t already been hearing, hospitals are facing a severe shortage of medical masks and gowns. Any small amount helps.

Join me in this tutorial on how to create face masks. These fabric masks can be worn over N95 masks to help prolong the life of the masks that save our medical personnel’s lives. They can also be worn in times of emergencies when no N95 masks are available.

At a time when you feel helpless and lost in anxiety, I urge you to put your hands on something that will truly make a difference in the lives of our people. Start creating!

Below you will find a list of materials I used to create the mask and where you can buy them online.

Lastly, I would like to thank anyone who is reading this and ask you to share it with your creative community. If you do not have a sewing machine, perhaps someone you know does.

Stay safe and quarantine!
