I’m going to kick off this post with a disclaimer. Homemade face masks are not medical-grade. They are not designed or intended to mitigate, prevent, treat, diagnose or cure any disease or health condition.
I am also linking you up to the World Health Organization for information on how and when to use a mask. It is up to you to make an informed decision on behalf of your family.
You will also need to add some sort of filter behind the mask and this design includes a pocket.

This pleated mask is easy to sew with your sewing machine.
It includes a pocket on the back so you can add in a filter for extra filtration.
The pattern is easy to follow and shows you how to use elastic, binding, tape or ribbon to secure the mask to your face.
There are also optional instructions for shaping the mask around your nose.
