GoldStar Tool’s COVID-19 Response

The latest recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advise everyone to wear a face mask, especially in places where it may be difficult to follow and maintain social distancing guidelines, such as the grocery store or the pharmacy. 

Since this recommendation came out, people all over the world have been coming up with creative ways to make and sew their own masks. 

At GoldStar Tool, we are taking the threat of COVID-19 seriously and prioritizing all equipment and supplies we sell to create face masks and other protective clothing and gear.

DIY Non-Surgical Masks

Due to the short supply of masks, the CDC is recommending people not use the N95 masks, but instead rely on homemade masks so that much-needed medical supplies are prioritized to where they are needed most. 

Reason to Make Your Own

How to Sew Your Own DIY Face Mask

The items you need to sew this DIY version of a non-surgical face mask, include elastic, 100% tightly woven cotton, pins, and a sewing machine. 

Face Mask Supplies: 


  1. Stack your two squares of cotton fabric.
  2. Take the long sides of your fabric and fold ½ inch and stitch, leave enough room on one end for boning.
  3. On the short sides of your fabric, fold ½ inch and stitch, leaving a large enough hole for the elastic.
  4. Thread your boning through one of the longer hems. This will be the top of the mask, and the boning will sit over the bridge of your nose.
  5. Thread your elastic through the shorter hems on both sides.  
  6. Tie, or sew, the ends of the elastic together to make a loop. 
  7. To make the mask fit your face, tuck the knots inside the hem and pull the elastic until the covering fits your face. Stitch the corners of the mask, securing the elastic to the fabric, to keep the shape of the mask.
