One of the latest is from @Mb_Fit_2, and it’s become quite popular as it takes combines the leftovers of a commercial mask with any cloth you have on hand for an easy-to-make reusable mask.

As the above pictures show, you simply cut off the ear and end portions of a standard sickness mask, and then folding your preferred fabric into a secured middle portion through the ear-strings. While the method is dependent on having a standard mask already on hand, it can come on handy for those reaching the end of their supply and allows for some customization options and the ability to substitute a reusable material.
