A DIY Face Mask: Sew a Face Mask for Yourself, Your Loved Ones and/or Your Community

I never thought I would be making these and actually wearing them. Well, I am now. I had to go to the hospital with my son for a post operative check-up the other day.

Make a Floor Pillow

However, the most expensive item if you’re making it yourself is the filling. If you have a fabric stash and some cord, the rest will cost you close to nothing. Just reserve one afternoon of sewing me-time!
