Sewing Projects for Medical Needs

With all that is going on in the world, the sewing community is stepping up and wanting to help medical providers with shortages.

That is all great and inspiring.  But here are a couple tips for those wanting to sewing and help in your own community.

Looking to sew for the medical community you'll need face mask sewing patterns, isolation gowns and more.
This post contains affiliate links to products I recommend.  I do make a portion off any you may purchase.  See full disclosure here.

Start by asking your friends and family in the health care field.  They might personally need something and you can make it.

If that doesn't work, call your local doctors, hospitals and hospice.  I personally think we need to keep it local if we can.  If they are not in need, you don't need to worry about it.

Another option is to check out your own local facebook groups or search for groups like this one called Sewing for Lives.  They put you in contact with actual requests for medical sewing needs.

Or check out Donate Take Action and see if there is a need in your area.

And remember, medical grade masks, gowns and booties are best.  But if there is a shortage the CDC has some guidance on handmade medical sewing projects.

I hope this list will help you in your quest to help.  But just remember the most important thing for you to do is stay safe and stay home.

If you are planning to sew face masks, check out this great post on Why and How to Sew Face Masks from Phat Quarters.  She has a lot of insight on donating, selling and self care in the midst of chaos.

  1. I'm looking for a pattern for the scrub hats. Have you seen one for that? Hopefully a pdf pattern as well if at all possible. Thanks so much for all of the information that you have been providing. It is so very helpful!

    1. Hey Vivian! Just added several scrub hat patterns that I recently found. Hope they help.
