When you can't "STAY GNOME" wear a face mask! 


As many of you may know, the CDC has put out a recommendation to wear cloth face coverings in public for your essential outings and other close contact with those not living in your home in an effort to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.  There is also a HUGE need for these handmade cloth face masks to be donated to long term care centers, vet clinics, hospitals, and more! Now is your opportunity to give back to your local community in a big way during this pandemic by making a handful of face masks to donate.  

We wanted to give back to all of our faithful followers and provide you with an easy 10-step tutorial that takes you through the process of making a DIY fabric face mask with a bonus nurse/medical professional gnome face mask tutorial. This tutorial is intended for beginning level sewers and we think it is even easier than our gnome pattern! We welcome you to print, pin, and share this pattern!

Please realize that handmade fabric face masks do not replace CDC recommendations for social distancing and will NOT prevent you from contracting the COVID-19 virus. Homemade masks are simply another small layer of protection for you and those around you to help prevent the spread of the virus.
