The important stuff:

 

We’re all about the power of crafts, but please remember these masks are not a replacement for medical grade PPE, social distancing, or regularly washing your hands.

Be sure to check government advice wherever you are in the world. The UK & CDC guidelines state that multiple layers of natural, tightly woven fabrics (like 100% cotton or linen) are the most effective for air filtration. In order to meet these guidelines, you would need to line your crafty creation. We suggest lining yours with high thread count pillowcases or cotton t-shirts!
