IKEA joins the fight + 6 DIY face mask you can make now

1 Share

DIY face mask tutorials including a no-sew and origami version.

Kudos to IKEA for producing face masks and other protective gear for hospitals.

The yellow and blue joins a growing list of companies branching out of their normal business areas to help meet equipment shortages in the fight against coronavirus.

Having started off with masks for staff in China in early stages of the pandemic, the Swedish group is working with several suppliers to ramp up output of masks for health workers, as well as hand sanitizers, visors and single-use aprons.

The first batches for European healthcare facilities are in transit, Henrik Elm, global supply manager at brand owner Inter IKEA Group, which is in charge of supply, told Reuters.

Several other companies are also working to help address an acute shortage of medical supplies, with vacuum cleaner company Dyson making ventilators, fashion group Armani producing medical overalls and spirits brand Ricard donating alcohol for sanitizers.

In the meantime, we’re now learning that any mask is better than no mask.

But supplies are running low in many places. If you can’t get your hands on N95 or surgical face masks, try making some DIY ones.

CDC recommends wearing face masks, even cloth masks, in public areas where other social distancing measures may be difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies). See CDC recommendations on homemade cloth coverings.

Here are a few DIY face mask tutorials to get you started:

No Sew Pleated Fabric Face Mask
Origami HEPA filter mask
DIY Flu mask
Won’t fog up your glasses face mask
Face mask with filter pocket, no pleats
HEPA filter mask + cotton mask

DIY a face mask and wear it when you go out.

Better yet, stay home and stay safe.

The Teeny Tiny How-to Film Festival

1 Share


Years ago, I watched a short video of a 4-year-old little girl teaching the viewer how to juggle one shoe. She was SO charming and funny and so totally herself… and it reminded me that we ALL know how to do stuff. We all have something to teach!

And then I thought of all of us at home- sequestered and feeling wobbly + also getting creative and wanting to connect. And so the Teeny Tiny How-to Film Festival was born!

Here’s the invitation:
Record a 60-second video of yourself teaching the world how to do something, anything!

Ideas for things you can teach us:

  • How to do your favorite dance  move.
  • How to eat chocolate.
  • How to flirt.
  • How to draw a goat.
  • How to be curious.
  • How to make coffee.
  • How to convince someone to hire you.
  • How to carry something on your head.
  • How to feed a fish.
  • How to do a tik tok video.
  • How to let go.
  • How to cry.
  • How to be kinder to yourself.

You ready? Just tag me @andreascher on either Instagram or Facebook + hashtag #teenytinyhowtofilmfestival

What cool thing do you know how to do?
What silly thing could you teach us in 60 seconds?

Surreal Drone Tour of a Pandemic-Emptied San Francisco

1 Share

This is a short drone tour of San Francisco with the shelter-in-place order in effect — it looks abandoned. Fisherman’s Wharf, downtown, Market Street, the Haight — I think I saw like 8 people total during the whole video. Heartening to see that people are taking shelter-in-place seriously.
