Thanks for your Fabric Face Mask Sewing Pattern advice. I love your tips and guide. But people should know that a fabric mask would be very dangerous if the fabric very low quality and louse. You must use the higher quality fabric for making the face mask to prevent covid-19. I have seen the higher quality non woven face mask making fabric on https://www.testextextile.com/product/face-mask-material
