1/4 inch and 1/8 inch elastic quality demonstration is in this video by me, Sandy Eulitt. I am a longtime sewist and I discuss what to look for in quality elastic for face masks. I demonstrate the quality of the elastic and show it used on three different face masks I made. I made face masks for my mom, Dr. sister, and healthcare workers using the Improved CDC pattern which can be found here: http://www.catscraftsandlaughs.com/2020/03/21/improved-cdc-mask-pattern/.
The improved CDC face mask pattern was created to accomplish a couple things:
- Ability to add a filter, if desired, for more protection
- How to sew a face mask more quickly by using a serger
