Here’s Where You Can Find Supplies To Make Face Masks

We know that the CDC has said that we should all wear face coverings when we leave the house. But, EVERYONE is out of masks — and they should be going to healthcare workers, anyway.

Fabric masks are the next best thing, but have you tried to get supplies? It seems they are nearly non-existent.

Well, don’t worry, because we have done the investigative work for you. We have found the things you will need to make a cool fabric face mask of your own.

You can follow a template that you need to sew, or you can follow the no-sew template. Either one will work.

Here are the supplies you will need to make your own face mask.

This is the only site I felt was worth opening. How do I make a mask, and what about a filter type cloth as medical masks use.
