Face Mask Project
Due to the Corona Virus
  • Mask Project
As you may know, I am home machine sewing fabric face masks for our First Responders, Medical
workers and Law Enforcement in our area. I am donating these masks to those who ask for them as
long as someone picks them up.  If you would like to order masks for your medical group please
order by text 803-364-0232.  I will fill orders as soon as possible.  Maximum order is currently 12
please, then repeat your order.  

  • Mask Materials
All masks are constructed from two layers of 100% natural, breathable cotton, fabrics.  They are
reusable, machine washable and can be placed in the dryer or simply air dry.  They are
not pre-
washed.  The masks are made with an inside pocket for HEPA filters or disposable masks.  Users
may  improvise with paper towels, coffee filters etc. If more protection is needed inside the mask.

  • Types of Masks
At this time, I'm making one style of mask for personal use in what is considered a size large.  I am
following the CDC recommended Guidelines for handmade masks.  I have coined the phrase
"Better than Nothing" for these masks.  The masks have an inside pocket that will accept the
disposable masks once they become available.  Users may also improvise with paper towels etc.  If
they feel more protection is needed inside the mask.
The straps can be changed out should the elastic break or not fit.  Use shoe strings, bias tape,
ribbon, elastic, T-shirt strips of fabric or any other fabric strips.  Some people are even using rubber
bands. The face masks may be special ordered with elastic ear straps or one adjustable fabric strap.  
(Model shown below is 2" teal satin ribbon.)

Masks for Medical Professionals are made with one continuous strap. Scrub hats are made in
Skull Cap or Bouffant styles.

Please pray for our Medical workers, Law Enforcement, First Responders, President Trump and his
team, our Country, our leaders, family and friends at this most difficult time.  Many thanks to all of
our hard working people of America.  God Bless you.  We appreciate you.  Please stay safe and
practice social distancing.

Love to all,
Pam
