At Home Care

Luly Yang Face Mask

As our community adapts to the Covid-19 pandemic there are steps that we can take to protect ourselves and those around us. The Luly Yang Face Mask can be easily made at home with materials most likely hiding around your home. These masks act as a barrier to the environment and serve as a reminder to avoid touching your face—without using valuable medical-grade face masks needed by local healthcare workers.

How To Make Your Face Mask

We are proud to join Providence's "100 Million Mask Challenge"

From the Puget Sound Business Journal: “You don’t have to be a seamstress or even a sourcing person. Everyone can call someone or reach out. We can do this and everyone can make a difference."

Cotton Fabric: Fabric A

The more densely woven, the better. We have used a plain weave printed cotton but some good substitutes could be a clean cotton  t-shirt, dish towel, or pillow case.

Jersey Interlining: Fabric B

Used as a padding layer in between the outermost and innermost layers. It should be breathable and soft. We have used a suitable cotton jersey much like those found in sweatpants and sweatshirts

Thin Jersey Lining: Fabric C

This should also be breathable, lightweight and soft as it will be the layer touching your skin. We have used a thin, stretchy jersey similar to what you would find in leggings, tank tops, or pajamas.

Tie Loop

Should be soft and stretchy. You can either use a wide hair tie that is already looped for you (test to see that it is wide enough to fit comfortably around your ear leaving a little room for the mask ends), or you can cut strips of the thin jersey lining and tie it in a knot at your desired length.

Wire (Optional)

Placed on the top seam across the nose for better fit. We are using jewelry wire but some good substitutes could be a pipe cleaner or kitchen twist ties.

Protective Filter (Optional)

Using the innermost lining layer, you may create a pocket in your face mask to add an additional protective filter. You can cut the material from coffee filters or vacuum cleaner bags
