    Default Favorite mask tutorial?

    Iíve made a few of the Deaconess type, but Iím out of elastic. Tried one with tors this morning...and making those long ties was so time consuming. Iíd like to use pipe cleaner for the nose piece...is there a favorite mask tutorial youíre using to make masks that includes the nose piece and ties? A filter pocket would be good too.

    Hospitals and nursing homes around here are requesting ties instead of elastic - apparently they are more comfortable for all day wear, and easier to get a good fit too.

    But I agree, the ties are a pain to make!

    This one looks pretty good:

    I assume you could use ribbon or cord or things like that for the ties?

    Joann Fabrics has a number of great DIYs, including one that uses bias tape instead of elastic:

    TBH, bias tape was my gut impulse from a sterilization standpoint.

    That's awesome! What a great idea to use bias tape instead of sewing your own straps!

    A local hospital created/shared this tutorial https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=erQuW8eDCew

    Hair binders are used for the elastic and there is a pocket for a filter.

    My friend is making a ton of them. And she started using panty hose for the ties! She says itís cheap, super stretchy and comfortable. She just cuts them into strips.

    I just want to say as a nurse Iím not allowed to wear homemade masks, but we still have masks.

    Having said that I have a friend making head coverings that I am using and finding useful. If anyone is interested in other projects. Iím not sure how much virus sticks to my hair, but it definitely cuts down on hair in my face and be unconsciously brushing it out if way.
