Greetings from Minneapolis! Boston is my second home, so I am connected with Another Yarn. I have all the materials for masks. I really need all of this good information, but I hope it's OK that I will make them for hospitals in Minneapolis.

Susan Lubar
23:01
I just made a mask from the pattern posted earlier, making it bigger as directed. I am concerned that it still isn't big enough to insert the N95 mask. The pattern as sewn is about 3 1/2" high, and Googling says the N95 is 5" high
ajgol
23:09
What is your website?
Susan Lubar
24:35
ok, thank you
Christina_Stone
24:53

Jennine Blum

If it’s a pdf file, sometimes when you print it, it will be smaller. Make sure you use the option DO NOT SCALE when you print

Judy Hewitt
27:28

iPad (2)
28:07
do we need any type of wire at the top of nose?
Judy Hewitt
30:00
you can see them
Bobbi
30:06
Yes the clips show.
Bobbi
31:22
or folded towel?
Carol
32:06
Press seams open, or press them closed?
Anna
32:11
please lift the pieces higher--hard to see
Paula's iPad
32:27
so both seam allowances go to one side, not pressed open?
Anna
33:27
does the lining need to be different than the outside material?
Judy Hewitt
33:45
are these for one time use
Jan Carpman
35:28
Can you sew these by hand - without a machine?
Ruth Lyddy
37:25
does the exra inch on each end include the quarter inch seam allowance?
Donna Swensen
37:48
Sort of like a small pillow case
Jill Reilly
39:10
Pllease show how elastic goes on
ajgol
39:14
I have a serger. Is it okay to serge finish and fold it over? Or would that be irritating?
Andrey Fedorov
39:58
Anyone knows if Michael’s in Cambridge Porter Sq has fabric and/or elastic in stock? I don’t even know if they are still open…
Susan Lubar
40:35
do you have one with full elastic/cording to show (rather than the ear bands)?
iPad (2)
41:03
please give the approximate dimension for the width of the fabric on the side ie the dimension for the opening.
Liz
41:08
Is it at all helpful to use a layer of nonwoven material inside?
Martha Kvaal
41:17
How do you get the round hair band through the casing?
Pamela
41:36
If you do ties instead of elastic do you need to knot the ends together so they don’t get all knotted up when they wash them? Im thinking of how knotted my sweatpants ties get in the wash-
ajgol
41:52
If we have elastic and want to make ear loops, what measurement would you use for the elastic?
Taniushkin Zab
42:01
is it possible to make elastic go over from one end to another behind the head instead of making two loops holding by ears?
Anna
42:20
can you talk about how to use elastic for the ties
Donna Swensen
42:23
if making ties, how long should they be? to go around head or ears?
donna
42:25
Don't the health care providers need to tie the safety mask behind their head, so both ends would need to be open?
Bobbi
42:34
Recently received text from Joanns (in Middleton) and they are doing curbside pickup. Check with you local store.
Gabriella Muscolo
42:54
is this pattern OK to use for mask that is NOT a cover for N95...My elderly neighbor wants a mask to go shopping and she will wash it after each use...is this the same pattern?? it doesn’t seem so
Susan Lubar
42:57
the height issue is with the opening by the ear
Judy Hewitt
42:59
how long are the ties and is ribbon ok
Jennine Blum
43:22
Make sure you print at 100% size, Actual Size.
Andrea Sequeira

AleciaManning
46:14
I jumped in late. Are masked inserted into these masks? Should we purchase these and where do we get them. Where should we send our masks
MS
46:35
Fabric idea: Use old woven cotton clothing you're never going to wear again? Ex button down shirt with an obvious stain on it (then cut the pattern from a non-stained area of the garment), etc.
Atin and Tina
46:50
These instructions are for masks for hospitals, that is, people who will be inserting their N95 masks inside to be able to use the N95s thru multiple uses.
Heidi Fieldston
47:04
If they are washing should the ties be somehow fastened in place?
Anna
47:14

Alena
48:43
I overbought fabric if anyone near Somerville wants to pick some up.
Sarah Lapides
49:27
If you are making a mask that is not a casing, should you add the wire?
MS
49:58
Can you use T-shirt fabric, more stretchy? Some of the particle N95 masks now being donated to hospitals are much bulkier than the "blue" healthcare N95 that healthcare workers are used to.
Chris Kyle
50:31
I can come get fabric from Somerville. 781-863-2855 text
Jennine Blum

Xian Ho
01:04:08
Thank you for this great effort :)
donna
01:04:16
I thought this fabric mask is designed to fit over a yellow mask with ties. I don't see how an N95 mask would fit in this fabric mask. Wouldn't it interfere with the fit of the N95?
Caro
01:04:33
Thank you!
