I explored making face masks for my family and have been pleased with the results. Research has shown than wearing a face mask will help protect against COVID-19 but the inclusion of filter material can make them much more effective. From what I've read from professors at Oxford University, suggestions for effective filter material include coffee filters, hoover bags and my personal favourite choice, pantyliners! The advantage of these masks compared to some others is the pocket to insert a filter of your choice. As I can't work at the moment I'm making some masks to sell at £12 each (filter material not included). I can also make smaller masks for children. Get in touch if you're interested. I have had a fair few orders so it's taking about a week or so for me to get new orders made. I'm also happy to share the pattern if you want to make your own. 😊 Take care and stay safe Sarah x #sarahgrantholistictherapies #nethermillsalon #aberdeenshire #tarves #ellon #pitmedden
