Together, we make a difference.
The crafting community has come together like never before. Within the last two weeks, we’ve seen hundreds of thousands of face masks cut on Cricut machines alone. We see you making for your friends, your family, the healthcare frontline, and essential workers in your community.
So here’s our humble invitation for makers everywhere:
Let’s make 2 million masks together!
Every mask counts toward the greater goal – to beat this thing together. Because here’s something we believe: When we all make together, we make all things possible.
To help realize this goal, we’ll be donating Cricut Maker machines and fabric to over 150 makers making a difference in their community.
Making an impact for essential workers
See how Cricut member Jessica O’Brien is making hundreds of personalized masks in her community.
Mobilizing masks for the front line
See how Sergeant Dan Thomas put a call out to his community to support local police officers with face masks.
Ready to make? Start here.
If you have a Cricut cutting machine, you’ll find several free face mask projects in Design Space for every skill level (including a no-sew design) – and use materials you probably already have at home, like a T-shirt.
You can cut these face mask patterns with fabric on your Cricut Maker or use your Cricut Explore machine to create a paper template.
If you’re a Cricut Explore machine owner and cutting multiple masks out of a paper template, you can tell us how many masks you’ve made.
