Pazan Gallery is pleased to help our community during this global health emergency. We have created this how-to video in order to help to "flatten the curb" of the deadly Covid19 virus by demonstrating how people may fashion a homemade face mask using an ordinary fitted bedsheet with or Dollarama elastic bands. The video demonstrates two versions of elastic bands that may be employed if one or the other is not available. To begin please download the PDF file of two size patterns for an adult and children.
These masks are not to protect the wearer but may help the spread of the virus if the wearer is not aware they have been infected. In this video, we used one cotton sheet as well a one linen sheet. These masks are for emergency use only. They are not for healthcare or home care workers. They must be washed with soap and water (or bleach) every 3 hours of use because they can begin to cultivate bacteria inside the humid filled cavity where the person is breathing into. These masks take about 30-45 minutes to make one at at time but you may want to layer the sheets in order to increase production and reduce waste.
Take care and good luck.
