Because the demand for face masks is tremendously high, and still to this date it is hard to buy them, I came up with an easy no-sew make of a face mask.
How to make a sterile no-sew face mask easy

This face mask is absolutely easy to make, it is sterile and breathable.
The only thing you need is:
- 4×4 sterile Gauze Pads
- elastic band thin (2 x approx. 6 inches long)
- needle and scissors
We had this First Aid Variety Pack at home which contains 10 sterile Gauze Pads.
Here is a link to similar gauze pads and the thin elastic band if you don’t have anything at home:
Use the 3 x 3″ pads for kids, 4 x 4″ for adults.
Check if you have Gauze Pads at home already, then there is no need to buy them.
This is how to make a sterile face mask:
Get your material and open up the Gauze Pad out of the cover
Unfold the pad once
Get your elastic band on the needle and stick it through the gauze pad. (If your elastic band is thicker make a small hole into the gauze pad and you can pull the band thru).
In the middle of the pad, insert the needle about 1/2 inch from the rim and pull it through. You need about 6 inches of elastic band on each side.
You can either leave the face mask as is, fold the two corners inside or cut the corners off. Whatever you feel is best for you.
The main features about this face mask is that it is sterile, you can breath well and it is an easy and fast make for the whole family.
Don’t wear fancy fabric face masks and keep them on your face for days. These pads are cheap and sterile and the rubber band is reusable.
Throw the face mask out after wearing and get another pad.
You don’t need a pattern to make them. The only thing you need is the gauze pad, thin elastic band and a needle. Cut the edges off if they bother you and you are good to go.

The corners of this face mask are cut off.
This face mask covers your nose and your mouth and is very comfortable to wear. No sweating or heavy breathing or bad smell if you wear this face mask.
So if you want a sterile face mask to wear during the times you have to wear a mask, make this easy and cheap face mask yourself. I made this in 5 minutes.
