5 free DIY face mask patterns and tutorials

Now it is recommended all people to wear face masks in public not only to protect from coronavirus but also slow the spread of coronavirus. Homemade masks are not as effective as surgical masks but they are better than nothing when there is difficulty in finding surgical face masks. As long as you use 100 % cotton and thick fabric with two lines covering your mouth and nose, they will be protective and preventive for daily use when you go to the supermarket or take your dog out  for a walk. It is a good idea to make a few masks so that you can switch them occasionally and wash them.

Are you ready to make your own mask? There are several ways of making a DIY face mask. Here I collected a bunch of free fabric face mask patterns. You can choose one of them and start making your DIY face mask.

hunter's star quilt pattern and tutorial

Hello, everybody. Today's project is making hunter's star quilt in a super easy way.The original hunter's star quilt was designed with diamond shapes but now we are able to create the same look with half square triangle units and square patches.

Hunter's star quilt  may seem confusing due to its layout. Each quilt block is actually a combination of four different patchwork sections which are rotated and then joined for a larger quilt block. When the blocks are sewn together, a secondary design emerges.

This is the first time I made a hunter's star quilt and I pretty liked it.I also prepared a tutorial for those who would also like to make one. In this tutorial, I have tried to make it as simple as possible with easy-to-follow steps and clear instructions. I hope you make use of it and enjoy it.
I used two fabrics for this hunter's star quilt pattern; one is dark and one is light. With the use of two fabrics it will be less confusing.

Here we go!
