We have all seen in the news the recent demand for personal protective equipment (PPE), and in particular face masks for the general public. The benefits of wearing a mask to protect yourself and others have been highlighted and although not yet compulsory, many people may feel more confident in public places when wearing one. It has also been suggested that as the lockdown eases, it may be advisable to start wearing a mask whilst out and about, either at work or on public transport where social distancing is not entirely within your control.
To help curb the spread of Coronavirus, we have designed an embroidery file for a face mask that can easily be stitched on your embroidery machine. A simple mask can be an effective way to contain the droplets that can spray into the air when talking, coughing or sneezing.
DST, PES and EMB file formats, compatible with most embroidery machine software, are free to download here: https://www.madeira.co.uk/dstfiles/
Please follow the washing instructions for the backings and any other fabrics you may choose to use.
Have some fun with different fabrics and embroidery to personalise your mask!
This mask design is for personal use only, it is not a medical product or personal protective equipment. If you want to use the design for medical purposes, please clarify the material requirements with the client.
While there is evidence that wearing a non-surgical face mask might help stop the spread of the virus, it is no substitute for other important COVID-19 prevention protocols, such as handwashing and social distancing.
