Sewing Headbands to relieve Facemask ear pain in Healthcare workers



This is a tutorial about how to help our healthcare workers get relief from ear pain as a result of wearing face masks. This is a simple headband with buttons on them that the face mask ear straps hook into. You can even modify this and simply purchase headbands at the store and sew buttons onto them, if you feel you cannot create the headband yourself but can sew a button.

This project is two levels of difficulty: Easy, and SUPER-easy and could provide a great deal of relief for our hard-working healthcare workers!

The material you need is:
- Jersey-knit or soft, stretchy material
- Two medium-sized buttons

Stay safe and keep healthy!

    Thank you! I have a friend in the medical field and she asked me if I could make some for her and I am fairly new to sewing and told her I’d have to look it up to see if it was something I could do. It looks super easy and nothing complicated so I’m happy to have found this so I can help her out! Thanks again!

    What size buttons are best to use?

    Can you do a hand sewing version? Trying to help a friend who doesn’t know how to sew but wants to make these since she’s a nurse. 🙏

    How do you know where to sew the buttons? Measurements? Thanks

    You can also use a big paperclip! We made a video with a lot cheap options!

    It would help to have cutting dimensions for the fabric.

    I’m new to sewing. What stitch would you use for this to allow the fabric to stretch?
