MASK with REMOVABLE FILTER
Updated: Mar 27
Check the post below for details on how to make this mask.
After spending way too many hours online looking at mask making videos, I found this great video on how to make a mask where you can use a removable filter, such a coffee filter. Thanks to UnityPoint Health for putting this out there for people to use.
I would say this mask requires a beginning to intermediate skill level of sewing. The video details the steps and they have instructions to follow as well, which will be posted below.
Here is the PDF of the pattern needed to make this mask.
Before making you mask, remember to pre-wash your fabrics in hot water and dry on high heat. You want to shrink the fabric before you make the masks because the healthcare providers are likely going to be washing and cleaning their masks this way when they get them home.
