IFL Washable Cotton Face Mask
As part of our COVID Response, we are providing the mask template we have co-designed with IFL Chico as open source DIY instructions.
Our contribution to the “Mass Movement for Making Masks” – a 4 layer cotton mask with filter insert pocket to be worn during essential outings and contact with other persons.

DIY 4Layer Instructions Revision 3
DIY 2Layer Instructions
Rev2 – Old Design (use only if sewing original ppe4scc.org kits distributed before 4/6/20)
This design calls for 4 layers of 100% cotton fabric with bias-sequencing, has a pocket for additional filter insert, elastic wraps around the head, nose bridge for better seal.
Suggestions for improving usage of this mask: use single-use double-sided medical tape to create an entire seal around the face, couple with adequate face shield to deflect direct droplets.
