  1. You are an angel. However, you should know that these masks have even more value in protecting others than yourself. Why? When you are not touching your face, you are not spreading secretions with your fingers if you are infected but have no symptoms. The masks also remind you to not touch your face. If you sneeze or cough, or even breathe heavily if you happen to be infected, most of your secretions will stay inside the mask. Finally, wearing masks is a big reminder to yourself and others that this virus is an emergency, and should be treated as such. There is a reason they are wearing masks in Asia and they appear to be doing a better job at limiting infection than we are. Your masks allow people to wear them without the shame or social stigma that wearing a bought mask has, because these masks are not taking medical supplies away from medical workers.

  2. During the epidemic, especially the demand for anti-epidemic articles is increasing and a situation of difficult to find them appeared.

    Now we have some stock in China and we COCOOS want to help.

    If there is a demand, please don't hesitate to contact us at service@cosoos.com

    Be safe as well wherever you are!

  3. thats actually stylish and surely lasts for the whole epidemic period. So in the evening, you put it into hot boiling water, hang it on a clothesline and the next morning it is again dry and clean?

  4. MimiG so very thoughtful and considerate of you, this is one of your best tutorials, thank you, and as always your instructions were simple and straightforward, nevermind the nails Mimi🤣🤣🤣 we should be grateful to still have our health in in tact, keep safe🤞

  5. I'm a male Respiratory Therapist a regular guy married to a Female Nurse and I like your design and video, I appreciate what you have done here it just may save the life of the health care workers. Also thank you that make comments those suggestions are a huge help as well. I have an old Montgomery Ward Sewing machine and I'm going to give it a try. Thank you again, Mimig, God Bless you.

  6. re: nails. My boys have just realised there will be no haircuts for the next 12 weeks. Panic. I'm encouraging the scruffy rocker look.

  7. Thanks for the tutorial. I hope your situation is better than ours in Spain. A disaster! Hospitals are out of stock of face masks and are asking people to make them at home. Yesterday I spent the entire day sewing face masks for them. People is getting infected through the doctors, it is a nightmare. So I decided to help in whatever I can. Espero que estéis bien y que esto pase pronto. Saludos

  8. Adding a flexible nose piece would be good. I used a small wire hand sewed between elastic then sewed it inside between the two layers of fabric..( but I tried it on my own experiment version) I'm thinking could I add a filter fabric between that's different.. like what about that black colored dust cover fabric for stapling under upholstered furniture? I have yards of it. It feels just like the surgical fabric.

  9. Thank you for this video/tutorial! ❤️ will you kindly send me the link for the downloadable pattern?

  10. printed well thankyou do i need just 2 layers of fabric no lining? is it enough and the top point is a little high may need to taper in and looking when you put it it's quite high up, i get chrostophobic if i cannot breathe properly will this pattern still work if i trim it down from the top?

  11. Thank you so much, i just made my first one, all by hand and its great, i even had to copy the drawing manually and came out good. Thx again, and please be safe!!! 🙂

  12. This is extremely DANGEROUS!!! DOnot DO THIS !!!! This is nt medical grade . Do your research into the size of this virus microscopically and you will see if can easily pass thru fabric such as this and the OTC masks at the drug stores .

  13. This is amazing!!! I work as a float Medical Assistant going to over a dozen clinics and i cant tell you how much we appreciate the sewing community thinking about us! I’m nervous going to work now but I’m taking precautions but I feel like I have to help however I can! So, thank you!! I will be trying to make a few if I can this week!! 🧵 😷 😊

  14. God bless you and thank you SO much! I really learned sewing appreciation during a rough time in my life from you and here you are again! You’re such a sweet angel!! Thank you again and may God continue to bless you! PS – I think I’ve bought all your patterns so far!!🥰🥰

  15. Thank you so much for this face mask pattern. 😊 This one covers more of your face which I like very much 😍

  16. You know we''ll get through this , but anyone dislikes anyone who makes these masks is a real piece of work. meaning you think your above this, newsflash no one is above this pandemic pee off jerks
