We were delighted to see that our recent Face Mask Sewing Patterns Roundup has been linked to from none other than the NY Post! For readers not familiar with the US media scene, the NY Post is a pretty widely read publication, especially in the NY area, so we're delighted they found our content useful enough to link to.
The article by Hannah Sparks highlights the concern that doctors in New York are now running out of face masks to help protect themselves from the deadly new novel coronavirus and that there are alternatives like making your own.
She was kind enough to note that the sewing blogger community is trying to do its part by making available all sorts of free patterns and instructions about how to make your own face masks.
Look for this link in the article.
Also, the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention issued new instructions recommending homemade masks if no alternative were available.
We put together what I think is the largest collection of free DIY Face Mask Sewing Patterns available. I hope that you use this resource if you need to make some of your own masks.
