A request from Dr. Dave Muegge, Director, Magers Health & Wellness Center.
Surgical masks are in great demand and cannot be found for purchase on the open market. At Magers, we have started to ask employees and volunteers with sewing skills to make surgical-like masks for us to use. We give these to patients when they come to Magers to wear while in Magers and to take home for cleaning and personal re-use as needed in the future. This enables us to keep Magers as clean of an environment as possible. It helps to protect our patients and our staff. Thanks for considering this request.
Here are patterns, some of which Dr. Muegge’s wife and others have used successfully. Also, if one presses ‘See More’ at the bottom of the patterns, there are some images of the completed masks.
Cut an interface of pellon. You need to add a 3/8 inch seem allowance to the pattern. Cut the same size fabric for all (the one for men) and if you can get or have elastic-cut 8 inch for large, 7 for medium it should work.
Thank you so much for your willingness to help Magers Health and Wellness! You can drop the masks off at Magers Health and Wellness Center on campus or you can mail them to:
