DIY Masks: COVID-19 Quarantine Project

COVID-19 spreads through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. 

Medical masks are not readily available to the public, reserving stock for health workers who need them the most, as they’re exposed to the virus in their line of work. With the limited number of masks due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a good number of people have resorted to making their own.

Are Homemade Cloth Masks Effective?


The CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies), especially in areas of significant community-based transmission. 

Cloth masks can be fashioned from fabrics and can be a decent alternative to medical masks if you don’t have access to them.

The CDC is recommending everyone wear a mask that covers nose and mouth when in public areas.
The CDC is recommending everyone wear a mask that covers nose and mouth when in public areas.

What Do I Need to Consider in a Homemade Mask?


First, the mask should have a snug fit. They should be secured with ties or elastic ear loops and should have multiple layers of fabrics to stop contaminated aerosol from penetrating it. More importantly, the mask shouldn’t restrict breathing and should be able to be laundered or machine-dried without damaging it.

While homemade masks are not as effective as surgical or N95 masks, they can help in slowing the spread of infection. Are you looking to make your own masks? Here’s how you can start.

Find quality bargains on some of our best fabric designs and materials! You will find rock bottom pricing for more than half the price.

The Materials


  • ✓ A suitable fabric
  • ✓ Lightweight fusible interfacing
  • ✓ ¼ inch elastic bands
  • ✓ Needle and thread
  • ✓ Scissors

Fabrics That Go can provide you with everything you need to complete your DIY Masks. Please Contact us for questions, to place an order, make an appointment, or a FREE Quote.

Step-by-Step


Step 1:

Cut both fabric and interfacing to 12 x 9 inches

Step 2:

Iron interfacing to fabric

Step 3:

Fold fabric in half with interacting on the outside

Step 4:

Cut two pieces of elastic bands, 7 inches long each

Step 5:

Sew ¼ inch from the edge of the material, pinning them down and leaving a 2-inch gap in the center

Step 6:

On the material, sew the elastic bands on each corner inside the material, pinning to keep them in place

Step 7:

Mark locations of pleat lines and add pins on both sides

Step 8:

Create three pleats by folding them and sew around the entire perimeter of the mask to hold them in place, and then close the 2-inch gap

 

Lastly, be sure to test out your new mask to see if it’s breathable. 

 

With homemade masks, you can help slow the infection, considering you’re using the right fabrics.

Donating Masks


If you’re making masks at home for yourself, family, and friends-  why not consider donating some to local Tucson frontliners?

Because homemade masks are not medical grade, they will not be worn by providers directly caring for COVID-19 patients, nor in procedure rooms or isolation areas, where only Banner-approved personal protective equipment must be worn.

How it Works

All comfort masks are welcome, but they must be made from a material that can be laundered. Donated masks will be professionally laundered by Prestige Cleaners, which has generously donated its services, before being given to staff and patients. After receiving a clean mask, staff and patients will be advised to personally launder their masks daily.

INSTRUCTIONS: Place homemade masks in a box, bag or container in your car’s trunk labeled “homemade masks” with the quantity enclosed (no need to individually bag or package each mask). Please place any other items for donation in a separate box or container. Park, remain in your car with the windows up and call 520.694.9180 upon arrival. Pop your trunk and a staff member wearing gloves and a mask will retrieve your donated items and leave a donation form in your trunk for you to complete and return via email in order to obtain a donation receipt.

Tucson Area Donations of Masks, Medical Supplies and PPE

How Southwest Culture Has Become Mainstream

During the craziness of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is helpful to take your mind off the chaos by stirring up some creativity. Now that you are confined to activities within your home, you finally have time to focus on the design and functionality of your household, along with a deep spring cleaning.

Explore different styles that you have always admired, but never had the chance to exemplify in the style of your home. Today, we explore the beauty of Southwestern Patterns in fabrics that can be used around the house.

Fabrics That Go is based in Tucson, Arizona- where Southwestern Culture is a lifestyle. Southwestern culture is influenced by the desert, warm sunsets, cactus & succulents, Native American Art, and more! 

In fact, Southwestern culture has gained mainstream recognition worldwide, with customers all over the world seeking unique Southwestern fabrics.

The Roots of Southwestern Culture


The Pueblo, Navajo, and Apache tribes have had a rich artistic history. These tribes, specifically the Navajo, produced beautifully designed woven blankets that later evolved into rugs.

Textiles with a Southewestern flair came later in the 19th century, with those crafted by different tribes featuring distinguishable traits. Most of them incorporated strong geometric shapes that are easily recognizable today.

The Appeal of the American Southwest


As a result of the Native American tribes in the area, American Southwest culture borrows heavily from Native art and motifs, inspired by nature and faith among the natives. The role of Southwest culture in the United States runs deep, and has even oozed out onto numerous communities outside of the United States, who have been captivated by the richness of the unique style. From imagery of cactus, sandstone palettes to spiritually-inspired arts and patterns, it’s no surprise that many have embraced Southwestern culture.

Southwestern Decor is trending on platforms such as Pinterest or Houzz, among other design applications and establishments. Home decorators are finding the Southwestern decor feels minimalist but not at all sterile or underdone. It is not necessary to go full Southwestern to take advantage of the aesthetic; plenty of pieces would fit seamlessly into your home, regardless of what decor profile you already have going on. Southwestern fabrics can add a splash of personality, with an upholstered accent chair, pillows, or even curtains.

Find quality bargains on some of our best fabric designs and materials! You will find rock bottom pricing for more than half the price.

Modern-Day Southwestern Designs


Take a look at an array of Southwestern fabrics from Fabrics That Go, to see how Southwestern culture can fit your home’s design. These range from the familiar geometric patterns stemming from Native American designs to more stylized depictions of the American Southwest- from deserts, native flora and fauna, and others.

If you’re looking for that Southwestern aesthetic for the project that you can work on during quarantine, Fabrics That Go has you covered.

Welcome Your Family For Thanksgiving With These Decorating Tips

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, you’ll want to make sure that your home is decorated in a way that makes your home cozy and ready to welcome the family. Here are a few tips to get your home holiday ready.

TABLE RUNNER OR TABLE CLOTH


The best way to begin decorating is by starting with the base of your table - table cloths and/or table runners. This is an easy way to spruce up an older table, especially if your table is showing signs of wear. If you can’t find the right pattern or color to match your home, this is a simple DIY project that doesn’t require a lot of sewing! Once you’ve laid down your runner or tablecloth, add some pumpkins or greenery to get in the festive spirit.

Add some Arizona Flavor by choosing Southwestern fabrics! Shop at Fabrics That Go and get 10-50% off thousands of fabrics! Southwestern & Outdoor Included!

DINNER NAPKINS


You don’t have to be skilled at folding napkins to make your table look elegant. A simple fold with decorative touches make it look just as nice! Think about tucking the silverware into the napkin to keep everything in one spot, or tie the napkin with twine and greenery to match the rest of the decor on the table. You can also add a name tag on top of the napkins to give it a personalized touch.

COZY THROWS & PILLOWS


Make sure to have plenty of comfy pillows & throw blankets around for when the weather cools down and the family begins to get chilly.

Choose neutral fabric for simplistic style, or get adventurous and pick a unique pattern to make a statement. Come in to Fabrics That Go for any style!

All of these decor ideas can be purchased at many home decor stores, but you can accomplish a more unique and customized home just as easily with a little time and a little bit of sewing. If you’re having trouble finding the right fabric for these projects, the store Fabrics That Go in Tucson, Arizona specializes in everything to do with DIY projects.
