Tutorial

 

Supplies:

1. Cotton material with a tight weave equal to a bed sheet, which is one choice. I used dress fabric. Each mask pattern piece requires a 7 inch by 7 inch square of fabric. So you need 4 squares of 7 inch by 7 inch fabric for each mask.

2. Contrasting fabric for outside and inside pieces.

3. At least 25 inches of elastic for a man or woman. This allows for ½ inch overlap to sew shut.

4. Sewing thread. I hand sewed my masks with quilting thread. They can be machine stitched with cotton or polyester sewing thread.

 

Method:

1. Cut 2 masks of outside fabric and 2 masks of inside fabric. Notice that pattern is 7 inches square. Each square of pattern in 1 inch by 1 inch.

2. Working on outside mask, first sew together center seam, good sides facing each other.

3. Working on inside mask, sew together center seam with good sides facing each other.

4. Align masks over each other with good sides facing each other and pin together all edges.

5. Stitch top end together.

6. Stitch bottom end together. Do not stitch sides together – leave free for turning.

7. Turn inside out so good sides of fabric are on outside.

8. Iron carefully along sewn edges to give a smooth appearance.

9. To make casing for elastic: Fold side edges of outside mask ½ inch twice to inside and stitch close to seam. See photo of inside mask.

10. Insert 25 inch length of elastic through one side casing, top to bottom, and continue to other side casing and insert elastic bottom to top.

11.  Overlap edges of elastic ½ inch and stitch together securely.

 

To Wear:

1. Slip mask over head to below face with fabric in front and elastic loops around back of head.

2. Keep lower end elastic around neck while pulling top of mask over nose into a comfortable position. See side view photo.

3. Slide upper loop of elastic above ears and between mid-back of head and crown of head. Adjust to a comfortable position.

That’s it. Stay safe!

 

Alternate to using narrow elastic:

Cut a 40 inch long length of sturdy narrow ribbon, thread through the side casings, and do not sew ends together. Instead keep open ends at top back of head and tie in a bow.

 

Observations:

Wash mask daily. I have 2 masks that I alternate, one to wear and one washed out at night.
