This pattern creates a four layer surgical style mask:
2 Layers - Finely woven Batik 100% cotton.
2 Layers - Non-woven polyester.
Bias ties for good fit and comfort.
Wire across the nose for good fit.
This has been trialed in a clinical setting and can be worn with comfort daily. Can be machine washed and machine dried.
We have kits available at $24 per kit. The pattern is included. Each kit makes 3 masks, and all fabric is pre-cut.
The bias I have used is a quality 100% cotton, it is manufactured by “A Day in the Country” in Thailand. It comes in limited colours so fabric to match the bias has been chosen.
Wearing your mask
A mask is only effective if worn properly.
- Place the wire on the bridge of your nose and mould it to fit your nose.
- Tie the top tie around the back of your head.
- Expand the mask by pulling the bottom edge right under your chin.
- Tie the lower tie behind your neck.
This is how your mask should look when you are wearing it:
