DIY Masks

New recommendations suggest wearing masks. There are some initiatives and tutorials out there. What’s your favorite? Who’s built her/his own fancy mask already?

Got some unfancy ones built by my mom. She used the fabric that was intended to do baby clothes for my sisters unborn child. Now I walk around with little dwarfs on my face :slight_smile: :mask: :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

Not DIY but produced in Germany: my friends from nat-2 started producing masks! I just ordered!
