Tiny Trash Can DIY face mask

DIY face mask

Wearing a face mask in public isn’t required (yet) in Quebec, but I choose to wear one when I go to public places (like grocery stores) where social distancing isn’t always possible. Montreal has about a quarter of all Canadian cases, so we can’t be too careful. I know cloth face coverings aren’t as effective as N95 masks, but they’re better than nothing. In the event that I’m an asymptomatic carrier, my mask protects others from getting sick 👍

I recently made two no-sew face masks out of my son’s old (and too small) cotton race t-shirt to normalize mask wearing and perhaps slow the spread of the coronavirus.

I love this mask because …

  • it’s easy to make (only takes 5 minutes!)
  • fits snugly but comfortably on my face
  • includes multiple layers of fabric
  • can be used over and over again
  • easily laundered and machine dried
  • it’s upcycled and zero waste!

There are tons of online tutorials for making cloth face coverings. I used this video tutorial from Jan Howell at youmakeitsimple.com
