I recently discovered that I know how to sew. With that knowledge, I began making face masks for me and my boyfriend to wear to the grocery store, to take the dog out, and to go out on walks. It just made sense. I have plenty of friends who are breaking out their sewing machines and making face coverings for their friends and neighbors. It’s a weird time, but we’re in this together. If you don’t really know how to sew, buying a face mask online is your next best option. Plenty of brands are pivoting their businesses and creating masks that also donate masks to others in need. One of the biggest pivots has been on Etsy, where small businesses are using their skills to craft masks.
Etsy has also put policies in place to make sure that there’s no spread of misinformation. All sellers have to be transparent about the process and standards of making the face coverings. For example, they can’t be labeled as a medical device (since they aren’t filtering out anything), and you can’t use language that may “advertise your products as designed or intended to mitigate, prevent, treat, diagnose, or cure any disease or health condition.” These washable (with soap and water), reusable face coverings are the best option for the general public so that PPE’s can be utilized by first responders. If you’re looking to keep your face covered when you’re out in public, these picks from Etsy are a great place to start your search.
Evil Kitty Reusable Face Mask
This simple but spicy face mask is a favorite of Scouted Contributor Amber Gibson. “The shape of the mask comfortably covers my nose and doesn't make my face look too wide, while the soft and lightweight fabric is breathable even on a hot summer day. There's even a pocket to insert a surgical mask or filter for extra protection if you wish. Perhaps most importantly, the ear loops are made of soft elastic and do not hurt my ears even after hours of wear. I can barely feel them."
