How to sew a medical mask for half an hour
We have two weeks to walk in masks and gloves, these are the rules. And for the absence of such uniforms in public places promise to finish. If you still do not have a fashionable and beautiful multi-part mask, then it’s not necessary to buy – it’s time to do it yourself! Many fabrics do not need, we checked.

The latter became very popular, mainly due to the fact that he knows how to keep the shape and very pleasant to the face.
