How to create your own face mask


- Face masks: What you need to know

The British public has been advised to wear "face coverings" as part of the Government's Covid-19 recovery strategy.

While health and care workers are required to wear specific types of face masks, the Government advice for the public is to wear scarves or home-made coverings in "an enclosed space where social distancing isn't possible and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet".

Many of us may feel we don't have the skills to create one ourselves, but two video guides have been produced by by and sewing pro Kate Owen which talk you through the process.

Take a look at the video above to find out how to make one without elastic.

Meanwhile, the video below shows you how to put one together if you do happen to have some elastic to hand.
