On the path

Step 1

  • Lay the t-shirt out and measure
    how much material you need to cover your face from the noise to chin.

Step 2

  • Fold the t-shirt in half
    and then cut the folded area out. This should make a sort of tube.

Step 3

  • Now you can make the front
    of the mask where your face is covered. Measure about 4 inches from one of the
    sides and then make a mark. On the other side you are going to make the straps.
    On the top measure two inches and make a mark, then repeat this on the bottom.
  • Next cut out the middle
    part of the tube, separating the straps. Cut up to the four in mark on the top
    and bottom.
  • Tie a knot with each of the
    straps closest to the face part of the mask. Next make another knot towards the
    end of the straps to secure them.
