Home-made masks

I found a pattern that I like. I happen to have fabric from sheets leftover from making my own weighted blanket covers. So, I'm using different sheets for the outside and inside. The first one I made, I also used fusible interfacing on one layer. Once made, I wore it almost an hour and I was having a LOT of trouble breathing. It just didn't allow the air through. I've just been using the two layers of sheet fabric (cotton) for mine. Rather than elastic (since I didn't have any of the very thin kind), I chose a pattern where I cut a 1 3/4" wide strip 41" long, folded in half (pressed), opened and folded each edge toward the center (not quite) and pressed, then folded in half again. It's non-bias tape. I binds the top and bottom edges and also serves as ties.
