Some states have adopted mandatory facemask requirements. If you have a sewing machine and about an hour, I have a simple pattern. Don’t fret if you don’t have access to a sewing machine though. Here is a super quick no sew facemask for you, using only a sock and a coffee filter.

It seems ridiculous to use a sock I realize, however, no one should be left out or unable to get essential items because they don’t have a mask (which you NEED to be wearing when you leave your home- please). It’s pretty easy and you can do it in just a few minutes.
Take a clean low-cut sock (I recommend a men’s version since they’re largest) and cut off the ankle and toe parts.
Cut about half way down from the top on both sides, about 3/8-1/2″ in from the sides. If there is a logo, and you don’t want it to show, put it on the cut side. It will go closest to your mouth.
Refold the sock so the uncut half faces down and the cut part is up.
Fold a coffee filter in half
Cut the coffee filter in half right up the middle…
…and spread out one half.
Fold the right side over at about the 1/3 mark.
Fold the remaining left side over into the middle section.
Place the filter into the pocket of the mask.
No Sew Facemask DONE!
Place the back of the no sew facemask against your face and stretch the loops over your ears to hold it in place.
It even fits children pretty well too! (as modeled by my SON, who desperately needed a haircut before this all started)
