Calling all Sewers, Crafters and Makers!
If you’re handy with a needle and thread, we need your help making face masks!
Serenity Lane is looking for face masks.
As part of infection prevention guidelines, Serenity Lane will be providing cloth face masks to residential patients and staff.
We need your help to keep our supplies robust and ensure we have enough to last the duration of the COVID-19 event.
Pattern and directions are available below to download to make a mask that has a washable fabric outer layer so it can be reused.
Face Mask Details:
Skill Level: This is a pattern appropriate for all levels of crafter, from beginner to advanced.
- OUTER LAYER: For the outer layer (of the largest size): a piece of fabric, measuring at least 20 by 20.5 cm. You need a breathable fabric that does not absorb any moisture. Preferably use a synthetic material (polyester) or cotton.
- INSIDE: For the inside (of the largest size): a piece of fabric, measuring at least 20 by 20.5 cm. Ideally, you should use polypropylene, but you can also use cotton.
- FILTER: Replaceable filter material, approximately the same size of the face mask. You can use vacuum cleaner bags or carbon filters.
