Free Printable Care and Details Tag for Cloth Face Masks during the Coronavirus Pandemic

This tag is to be used with cloth face masks that are intended for the general public to wear in nonclinical settings. Please be sure you are following the most updated guidelines when sewing your masks that you are donating or selling.

Handmade Cloth Masks should be made using two layers of quilters cotton with a thicker tighter weave. Please be transparent and use a disclaimer that your product in the Etsy Marketplace is not designed or intended to mitigate, prevent, treat, diagnose or cure any disease or health condition.

CDC guidelines as of April 3, 2020 regarding handmade cloth masks

“It is critical to emphasize that maintaining 6-feet social distancing remains important to slowing the spread of the virus. CDC is additionally advising the use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others.”

Things to remember when making cloth face masks

  • Use 2 layers of 100% cotton fabric that is tightly woven, it is recommended to have at least 180 thread count or higher.
  • If using a thinner cotton fabric, still use 2 layers but include a pocket for a filter or an internal layer of flannel.

Rectangle Tags are also included in the free tag printables for those who do not have a hang tag punch

Cloth Face Mask Patterns

I found a few different patterns that work great for donations and personal use. Below are two videos that I found very helpful and are similar to many of the patterns that hospitals are requesting. Please be sure to check with the place where you are donating to find out if they have a specific pattern they want you to follow before making and sending in your donations.

UPDATE: The Pattern that I use for most of my masks is from Craft Passion the pattern is easy to follow and has a good fit. I have been using Bernat Maker Home Dec Yarn for the ties and they work great. I purchased mine on Amazon but you can buy at Michaels or Joann online too.

The Craft Passion Pattern is a free pattern online.

I also added thank you note cards that can be used with larger hospital/medical facility donations

I also made a few using the tutorial found on the Black Squirrel Fabrics website. I made a few slight modifications as I used t-shirt fabric ties instead of elastic, but for the most part this is the same as the one shown in the tutorial. Black Squirrel is also sending free fabric and materials to make your own masks to donate to medical workers.

I made a special tag that can be used with donations for medical workers. The tag includes check boxes for filter pocket or N95 mask cover.

And Please remember when making masks for the general public, masks should be used only as an “additive” to social distancing, not a substitute.

    Thank you so much for sharing these! They are all wonderful! I’m curious if they’re customizable at all? I love the Thank You Bear and wanted to use him along with the Cloth Face Mask Insert and the Rectangle Tag. Is it possible to do that in any way?

  5. Gayle Kominar says:

    Wow, what a wonderful find! Thanks so very much for making these available for free. The files print beautifully, and look so professional. To date i have donated 50 masks, to my local YMCA that distributes them to various organizations in need. I love that the care labels are available to package with the masks.

    I have purchased another of your printables from your Etsy shop, I am sure i will be back again and again. Once more , thankyou.

    Thank you so much! I am offering one free mask to each person and then charging them for masks after that in order to try and cover the costs of supplies. These are so helpful in keeping costs low, as well as saving me time so that I can focus on making masks. Thank you!
