How To Make A Face Covering [HOW-TO] 16/07/2020

From this Friday, the UK government have said that we should all be wearing a face covering when we go out shopping, it will be mandatory….as in, we HAVE TO, or we’ll get a fine. of £100.00. 

So, we thought we’d show you how you can make them at home so you can put your own spin on them:-

Whether you’ve run out of things to do, or didn’t quite get around to ordering a face mask online, we’ve got you. We’re pretty sure face mask/coverings are going to be around for a long time; we’ve got to wear them to help to protect ourselves and our loved ones after all, so check out the resources below:-

This is straight from the Government Website: HOW TO MAKE A CLOTH FACE COVERING

Now here’s one from the BBC about how to make a face covering from a bandana…

If you’re sewing skills aren’t quite up to it (and let’s face it, a lot of ours aren’t!), have a look at this No Sew Face Mask Youtube Tutorial:-

Even ASOS are on the hype, whether you fancy checking out their range of face coverings or are inspired to create your own, head over to their blog post for more details (give the image below a click)

So you’ve made your mask, here’s how to wear it (we know it’s a little basic, but you’d be amazed at how some people have been wearing their masks!) 

So, whether we like it or not, face coverings are about to be a huge thing. It’s rumoured that they’re going to overtake trainers as statement pieces; and why wouldn’t they? You can go as crazy or as muted as you want with them, you can make them as understated or as stand-out as you need. And we’re stuck with them, let’s make the best of them! If you have the money to snatch an own-brand, you do it, but if you don’t, you hold onto your unique face covering. You never know how much it will be worth once you’ve hit your career stride and finished KC!

We know, we know, you already know this.  But just in case you don’t (safety first folks), we thought we’d explain WHY you should wear a face mask, WHY you should remember to put one in your pocket or your bag.

  • Coronavirus is spread when droplets are sprayed into the air when infected people talk, cough or sneeze. Those droplets can then fall on surfaces.
  • Face masks stop the spread of viral droplets when you sneeze or cough 
  • Homemade cloth face coverings can help reduce the spread from people who are contagious but have no symptoms or are yet to develop symptoms. This is called asymptomatic or presymptomatic transmission.
  • Not only does a face covering offer some protection to those around you, it also protects you. 

We’re all in this together, we all need to look after each other. If you make (or have made) a mask, tag us in a photo, #TeamKCFaceCovering, we’d love to see how creative you guys get! And you never know, we may have our own KC face coverings in production as we speak…

And just in case you need some inspiration, take a look at what some other people have gone and done with their face coverings:-
