None of these patterns are surgical grade which I feel is important to note. These are face mask patterns you can make for personal use or to sell or give to your friends and family.
Face Mask use
While these face masks are not of surgical grade they will help deter the dispersion of mucus and water droplet particles that occur during coughing, sneezing and talking. DIY face masks and face shields have become increasingly popular and requested by some employers.
Homemade face coverings
Homemade face masks should fit securely to head with ear loops and allow for easy breathing. They should be made of linen or cotton preferably two layers. A face mask should be changed as soon as it becomes damp or dirty and should maintain shape after washing and drying.
Non-medical face masks should not be shared. Face coverings should not be placed on children under the age of two. Homemade face coverings should not be made of plastic or non-breathable materials. Ensure that the DIY face mask pattern you use does not impair your vision, breathing or regular tasks.

Mask washing & care instructions
Homemade DIY facial masks should be washed in a warm water cycle with regular fabric detergent and then placed in the dryer. Ensure that your face mask has not shrunk or changed shape or developed holes before your next use. Please note that homemade masks are not sterile or of surgical grade protection.
DO NOT place your homemade facial protection in the microwave as it has a metal nose piece and can result in burns and damage to both the microwave and yourself. Placing your mask in the microwave does not sterilize the mask. Simply wash and dry in a regular household laundry machine.
