In most areas, face masks are now a strict requirement for everyone who needs to go out of their homes for any reason. We all know how difficult it can be to get a hold of surgical or N95 masks and we also need to think about our hospital frontliners who should be prioritized in getting them.
So as an interim, a lot of people have posted video tutorials of how to create your own masks using materials that can be found at home or can easily be bought from regular grocery stores without the need to go to specialty shops.
We found a video tutorial we can easily follow to create our own washable masks, complete with patterns for adult and kiddie sizes, and can also be hand-sewn! Our Kendrick team will also be doing a DIY Masks Contest (Mechanics will be sent internally, Team!) because all our locations have required wearing them when going out, and this is especially important for our Realtors who are still safely engaging with our clients and conducting virtual or private showings.
Here’s what we’ll need (the last 2 items in the list are the most important ones!):
1. Pen and paper (for drawing the pattern)
2. Your dusty and forgotten Sewing Kit! (complete with pins, needles, threads, scissors and ruler or measuring tape)
3. Cloth (non-stretch) - 4pcs 16x18cm
4. Felt cleaning cloth (as filter) - 2pcs 10x14cm
5. Garter or elastics
6. Crafty skills
Share with us your creations!
