Simple Facemask From Old Shirt for Coronavirus, Version 1

Introduction: Simple Facemask From Old Shirt for Coronavirus, Version 1

Simple facemask from old shirt, version 1.

Steps to make:

  1. Cut out square of fabric from shirt (for this one I cut out the pocket).
  2. Cut 4 strips of cloth about 1 inch (2.5 cm) wide and 12 inches (30 cm) long.
  3. Sew one end of each of the strips to each corner of the square of fabric.
  4. To use the facemask, place the square on your face and tie the top two strips around your head above your ears.
  5. Finally, tie the bottom two strips around the back of your neck.
  6. If it is difficult to breathe, loose the bottom two strips.

    it would be better to use professional masks to protect us from coronavirus, cause you are not sure if this kind of masks can really block virus. Just not use our lives for kidding.

    Sorry, I look forward to seeing version 2 though. Loosening the bottom strap does not work for CoVid-19. But I'm staying tuned. I will use this as a regular face mask though, so I favorited it and downloaded to my files.
    Peace to you.
