If ya feel like crafting a mask that would actually protect you a little, here's one the cdc recommends.

NOTE: If you click "Back to article" you can read how the testing went and how effective (or not) this mask is compared to mass produced N95 respirators.
That looks like some crazy bondage mask. Shocked
She's content with what she's got.
She looked at my post earlier and made a face that said, "whatever, I look badass."  Cheesy

HA!  I love the ninja mask  Cheesy

but I just wanted to say that you're an awesome big sister and while the mask won't do anything, physically, it eases her mind and that's a big thing.  Kids don't need that kind of stress yet. 

Does hiding hunder a holey blanket while I watch scary movies keep the villian from coming through the screen and getting me?  No.  But it makes me feel better and that's enough for me  Wink (and I can still watch through the holes!)

And, on a crafty note: Awesome little design!!!!  She does look badass!!!!

I'm no scientist, but I don't believe the mask is completely ineffective. If someone sneezed on you, so what if the virus can get through the fabric? It would block some of their sneeze juice. Less direct exposure to sneeze juice seems like less risk of contracting the virus, provided that you then left the crowded area and removed your mask rather than keeping it on breathing through the infected fabric.

Also the mask might be part of a larger frame of mind that keeps you washing your hands more and avoiding touching your face.

I love your mask and I am making a few today!

I dont know how useful they are but I think its a great idea.
I have actually been considering making some masks for myself ( since I live in texas and they say its really bad here )
I was thinking of getting the hardware masks and just having some fun with them.
Bravo too you though. And its great that your sister is happy with it.

Fellow craftster, I'm Mexican and live in Mexico City  Cry Unfortunately the situation is getting worst. I have my mask N95 and I use it on public transportation or where is a little crowded. I only have ONE mask of this kind and right now it's impossible to get another  Sad. I know that the mask made of fabric is not enough against the virus but I made one in order to use at my office, where I'm alone. Tonight I'm going to make another fabric masks for me and my family. The specialist told us that this fabric mask is effective from 10 min to an hour (I really don't know if this is true, please give me some light in this), so if you want to try this kind you have to make several and change it every hour. Take care.

That's why I made it too.  We live in San Antonio and Schertz/Cibolo had documented cases.

I don't think we have documented cases here in my state, but a neighboring state does.  Close enough to make you think about it!

I was wondering, though - what if you were to use some sort of material that was more effective on the side against your face, and then the decorative fabric inside.  I mean, there are super-thin stabilizers for in-between layers, or maybe you could use a thin sort of hepa-type filter type fabric?

I really have no idea what I'm talking about, just throwing out suggestions  Tongue

I was thinking about making more and doubling up the fabric with some interfacing between. :]
