OSL Reusable Mask Design

Accessible design is better design. Considering the needs of healthcare workers and people with disabilities during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are creating a multi-purpose design to DIY reusable fabric masks and plastic mask covers. Our design tutorial aims to inform the current need of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) design innovation as well as to raise awareness on available alternatives that people can make at home. Additionally, we use the tools from our adaptive sewing toolkit Hack•ability to make crafting easier for people of all abilities.

To DIY the masks at home, you can download and print the patterns & instruction below:
