COVID-19: How We Can Help

The medical community needs our skills and generosity with regard to making supplies for our precious medical workers. NOTE: The efficacy of these items is not up for discussion at this time. Thank you for understanding.
 
Patterns: I’ve put together a small collection of links to free patterns to make face masks, scrub caps, and hospital gowns.
Donations: These items will be needed in your local area. I do not have general information about where to donate these items. Consider reaching out to local hospitals, nursing homes, care centers or anywhere these items are regularly used – they will all feel the shortage of supplies.
LINKS: All links are included at my Pinterest board here and individually below.

My Top Choices for Free Face Mask Patterns

Face Mask, quick, easy, above average fit, by Tom Bihn– I suspect this has a really good fit due to bias cut/edges, stretching where needed as it meets the face.
Face Mask with ties, to fit over N95 mask, A.B. Mask by a Nurse
– I’ve made dozens of these with elastic ear loops cut to 6.5″. Eliminate ties by sewing right sides together, leave an opening to turn. Then pleat and topstitch to finish.

Free Hospital Gown Patterns for Adult and Child

Free patterns are available later in this post. A nursing care facility is using my free gown pattern to create isolation gowns by extending the sleeve and adding elastic at the wrist.

Note – For quick construction of a bare-bones gown: Sew shoulder seams and skip the Velcro closure. No chest pocket is needed.

The Story Behind the Gown
Friends of quilter Susie Stiving made gowns for her during her from her favorite quilt fabrics for her long hospital stays and the gowns lifted her spirits.
We thought you might like to make a hospital gown for a loved-one. So, we have two free gown patterns available for your use.
Consider making a shawl, wrap or lap sized quilt to go along with the gown for times when a little more warmth is needed.
