Mask Tutorial

Mask Pattern

  • Cut 2 poly/cotton pieces for the top layer
  • Cut two cotton pieces for the liner

  • Sew centre seams of each set
    • Use ¼ inch elastic, cut two 15cm pieces
    • Sew elastic to the corners of the top layer to create ear loops

      • Right sides together, and with the elastic sandwiched inside, sew top and liner layers together. IMPORTANT leave 4 inches open at the bottom so you can turn the mask right side out. 
        • Cut 10cm of padded gardeners wire
        • Centre wire at the top of the mask
        • Using zigzag stitch sew wire onto the top of the mask

        • Turn mask right side out
        • Top stitch around mask, make sure to turn raw edges on bottom inward as you go.
        • Congratulations you made a mask! Please note these masks are not medical grade, but can be used to help prevent the spread of disease.
