How to make your own headband for PPE or homemade masks.
As several of my friends work in the care sector, I am aware that it is very uncomfortable wearing a face mask for long periods of time, so I decided to make some comfortable, buttoned, headbands to improve their days/nights. I wanted to use products which were easily available to me, in fabrics which suited their wearers. This design works well with fabrics from our stash of cottons. While they are quick and easy to make, I have had great feedback from everyone I’ve gifted them to.
You will need:
- 1 piece of fabric – 5”- 6” x 14” (13cm-15cm x 36cm)
- 1 piece of fabric – 2¾” x 11” (7cm x 28cm)
- 1 elastic 1” x 7” (2.5cm x 18cm)
- 2 large buttons
