Wearing a mask for hours while at work, many health professionals say the elastic ear loops hurts their ears. Is this you too? Here are 2 ways to save your ears!
- With a shoelace
- With t-shirt ties
With A Shoelace
Purchase a 45 or 54-inch shoelace and follow the pictorial instructions above, left to right.
With T-Shirt Ties
A few points to remember when making t-shirt ties:
- Knit fabrics don’t fray and when pulled it will curl. The curl encloses the tie and you don’t have to sew it like you would woven fabrics.
- Cut 21 inch wide strips 30” long, then pull the strips to stretch the fabric.
- How you cut the ties is important if you want the right side of the fabric showing. Cutting along the bottom of a t-shirt will expose the wrong side of the fabric. If you are using a plain color fabric, the cut won’t matter.
