This week we found a fantastic little project page through Spotlight (you can find the link here) where you can make your own face masks.

Thankfully here in SA it isn’t quite mandatory to wear masks due to Covid-19 like it is elsewhere, but it may be worth preparing just in case and this seemed a cool way to get the kids involved and hopefully make something they will wear!

Spotlight’s page have some fantastic tutorials and instructions (Download free pattern here) but we found it best to use a tightly woven cotton and printed poly cotton. You can also use broad cloth or top pop cotton though. We used top pop for the middle layer as it needs to absorb moisture, so any material similar to pillow protectors are suitable for the middle layers.

All this info was given to us by the uber helpful staff at Spotlight when we went in and asked for help.
