Children's Face Masks

Talli has been having to wear a mask when she goes out in public because of the risks of catching H1N1. We are almost out of the box of Kimberly-Clark Pediatric Masks and are having trouble locating more. I called a number of local pharmacies and they don't carry them at all. The vendors on have significantly increased their prices.

Another mom told me about It's My Heart, a non-profit for congenital heart defects. They have directions on their website to make a face mask. From reading that I have done, it is recommended that the weave of the fabric to be tight & layered and the masks are washed between uses and when they are soiled.

There is a link in my link list sewing directions.
