Our favorite face masks and a challenge

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, homemade face masks have dominated the online craft scene, well, every scene for that matter, and we wanted to hop on and share some of our favorites that we’ve been spotting from around the web as well as some that we came up with from our own stash.

We particularly wanted to draw attention to Tiek’s #SewTOGETHER challenge they’ve posted online, designed to help people make homemade face masks and donate them to hospitals and other essential medical workers to help preserve the supply of medical-grade masks. Teiks is rewarding those who donate a certain number of masks with gift cards, which we think is just a great way of spreading some goodness in the world! 25 donated masks will earn a $50 gift card, and $100 gift cards are being given for donating 100 masks or more. If you check out their challenge, there are a ton of resources available, from mask patterns to instructions for how to donate!

Here’s a list of some of our favorite masks for inspiration to make for yourself, donate to your favorite cause, or purchase for yourself and/or donate to charity.

Making your own face mask

Now, check out the masks that we made. Medical-grade masks certainly couldn’t ever be considered very stylish, but we made these homemade masks as cute as could be! Of course, you could whip these up with whatever fabric you might have lying around, OR you could make some to match your quarantine look! Quarantine fashion is a thing, right?DIY fabric face masks

We opted for fabric with patterns that made us smile, even if you can’t tell under the mask. Plus, it was so easy to make these, and we think that it would be wonderful to make a load to donate to places giving essential care. The pattern we used came with extra-long ties for the mask, which makes them adjustable for any face! The long straps can be tied around your head as well, to prevent any irritation around your ears if you’re going to be wearing the mask for long periods of time.

The most beautiful face masks from around the web

Here are some of our favorites that we’ve been spotting from some of our favorite small businesses and makers.

Hospital staff and medical workers are always grateful for mask donations, and we suggest asking any of your friends and family who don’t have a sewing machine if they’d like you to make one for them too! Every help you can give during this time has a bigger footprint than you can imagine. Little things like a donation of (cute!) homemade masks are what keep us going during quarantine.
