Use the following steps to become a Corona Fighter and start stitching face masks to help our community.
Step 1 – Sign up (now closed)
We have been extremely humbled by the tremendous outpouring of support from volunteers such as yourself. Due to the overwhelming number of volunteers that have already signed up, we have currently stopped accepting volunteers!
Step 2 – Receive Mask Kit to Sew With Filter Pockets or Make Your Own ( 25 masks per kit)
Receive a Mask Kit with enough material for 25 masks. Each mask requires the following materials. Feel free to use a thread of any colour! Each kit will need its elastic cut to 7.5″
If you would like to make your own kit and masks, please find below the measurements for each mask.
100% Cotton sheets – 9″x 16″
Metal wire (for nose piece) – 5″
Elastic pieces (ear loops) – 7.5″
Step 3 – Stitch the Masks
We are fortunate to have two patterns one with filter pockets and one without. Our original pattern still exists at the bottom of page with the materials and instructional video
We have recently switched to adding filter pockets which are designed for use with material in 25 mask kits.
Optional: When you’re done making each mask, feel free to sign the corner with your name, or the #Stitch4Corona tag, or a short message to let the person wearing it that you send your regards!
Step 4 – Return the Stitched Masks
Get in touch with your contact person to let them know that you’ve finished stitching the masks. They will either pick them up from your doorstep, or ask you to drop them off at a drop-off location!
Step 5 – Take a picture!
Once you are done, if you want, take a picture of your hard work and send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org to be featured on our website. Or you can always post it to any social media site by using the hashtag #stitch4corona.
Original Design of Masks with Instructions for No Filter Pockets
Use our instructional video to stitch together the masks without filter pockets. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us! Remember to take lots of pictures while making the masks and put them on social media for the world to see. Use the tag #Stitch4Corona to engage our community and get an even larger group working towards this cause!
