Make your own face mask

“How to make a face mask?” is the most googled question right now and for good reason. Since the introduction of mandatory face coverings in Metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire, there’s no better time to put your sewing skills to good use.

The Victoria Department of Health have put together instructions for how to make a reusable cloth mask,  find them here.

Some things to remember:
  • Make sure the mask fits your face correctly
  • If your mask becomes damp, you will need to change it.
  • Try not to touch your mask whilst wearing it
  • Wash your mask before re-using
If you'd prefer to let the experts do it for you, masks are also available from Amcal and Better Home.
