Have you been wanting to make masks to help with needs in your community for personal protection equipment?
At Beth Millner Jewelry, we have put together a free pattern for both masks and removable aluminum nose pieces. We've listed some tips and tricks on how to make them below. If you'd like to check out our website, we have masks available for purchase on a sliding scale. This allows anyone, regardless of financial ability, to purchase masks and supplies.
One exciting aspect of our pattern is that it allows for the nosepiece to be removed and replaced whenever it is needed. This ensures that the mask will have the comfort of a flexible nose strip, but will last much longer than similar masks that use household materials like pipe cleaners. You can purchase nosepieces from us on a sliding scale on our website. Click here to get Tips on Making Metal Nosepieces for Cloth Masks.
1. UPDATED June 17th, 2020 Here is a pattern the staff at Beth Millner Jewelry put together. It was inspired by other local patterns being used: Mask Sewing Pattern with Filter Pocket and Removable Nosepiece.
2. It's easy to make cloth ties with T-shirt yarn! Click here to learn how. (Note: these ties are best for personal use only, as they can become tangled when washed together.) We have masks with ties like these available on our website here if you'd like an example.
4. Although you can file your metal nosepieces with an emery board, it is easy to round them with scissors as well.
We are committed to providing masks and supplies to our community. Any amount that you are able to donate directly to Beth Millner Jewelry will help us in our mask-making efforts, and allow us to keep our costs low. Please click here to donate.
