As the government is recommending that we all wear masks, we’ve turned out minds to sewing them! Big Community Sew has lots of simple patterns, hints and tips for making masks.

Why not think about making them for friends or family, or joining a community group to help make masks for people and communities who can’t make their own.

The best bit is that these masks are reusable and can be washed, and help to reduce some of the strain on the provision of PPE where it’s needed most.
