What can you do when you do not have a mask.
It is hard to find a mask these days and people who has allergies need to find temporary solutions. I see people use a mask made out of paper towels and coffee filters. It might work, but I think this handkerchief mask and Pajama Pants Mask are very practical and easy to make. The best thing is no sewing needed.

Using mask is not common thing in US.
The mask is usually white and not fashionable. But if you choose the fabric you like and be creative, the mask can be a cool item.
Choose the fabric for the mask
If you do not have a handkerchief, you can just use any fabric about 50cmx50cm.
The Most important thing is the air flow. If you choose the fabric does not have good air flow, you might have trouble breathing. But if it is too thin, the dust will come through. If you are going to use 100% cotton fabric like T-shirts, 2 or 3 layers could be good probably.
Check if you can breath easily before you start making.
