FABRIC: [I am using 100% cotton for outer layers and Muslin or polycotton for inner layer. The measurements of the fabric depend on the size of the facemask. You will find 9 patterns in my website.
ELASTIC FOR THE EAR SUPPORT AND 360 ADJUSTMENTS OF THE FACEMASK:You may use any elastic. [The measurements depend on the size of the fabric].
I am using FARMYARN elastic yarn. If you wish to know more about it, please visit their website. Like I mentioned and my tutorial, this yarn is very strong, elastic and most of all very soft on your ears.
Also you will need a sewing machine, sewing thread, pins, clips, scissors, tape ruler or ruler, washable fabric pen and an iron.

DISCLOSURE: *** this is NOT a medical GRADE face mask***. Is a suggestion of how to sew a Fabric Face Mask. CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies), especially in areas of significant community-based transmission. CDC also advises the use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others. Cloth face coverings fashioned from household items or made at home from common materials at low cost can be used as an additional, voluntary public health measure. Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance. The cloth face coverings recommended are not surgical masks or N-95 respirators. Those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders, as recommended by current CDC guidance.
