Sew-Your-Own Fabric Mask!

This is a pattern and instructions only. Finished fabric masks may be available for purchase in my shop, click here.

Want to make a fabric mask? I mashed up a few of my favorite mask patterns to create one that is fitted to your face and has a pleat at the cheeks for a snug fit. The video tutorials show elastic ear loops, but this pattern could easily be made with ties.

I originally made the videos for some friends, so if you are an experienced sewist it's probably way too detailed, but if you haven't sewn much lately, it should help.
And apparently I miss talking to other humans because I talk a lot!

This is my own pattern, so feel free to use it to make masks for personal use or to donate only. Click the links below for printable PDF templates. Print on card stock if possible.

MASK INSTRUCTIONS

1) You'll need: Two coordinating cotton fabrics, template, glue and/or pins, scissors and/or rotary cutter, 2 pieces of 1/4" elastic or ties. Also, an iron and sewing machine.
Elastic Sizes: Try on your mask after Video #3, if it's too tight you'll have to take it out and redo. If its too loose you can fix that afterwards if you want!
Adult Men & Women: about 6.5"
Kids: about 5.5"
Tween: about 5.75"
All sizes are approximate. I usually spend MONTHS testing out sizes, but that wasn't possible!

2) Print and cut out the template you want to use. Use card stock if you have it.

3) Fold your fabric right-sides-together just wide enough for the template. Trace and cut out both fabrics. I like to use washable markers. You'll have 2 pieces of each fabric (4 all together). (*see photo)

4) Sew down the curved "nose" part of each fabric, still right-sides-together. Start at the flat bottom, not at the pointy top. Make sure to back-stitch at the start and end.

Watch the videos for the rest!

*Note - try on your mask at this point to see if you need to adjust the elastic

*Note - I am having more trouble getting these pleats to "stick" with glue, you can also easily fold and sew as you topstitch in the next step. It saves some time!

One size fits most. These should fit snug but not tight.

Please read through the CDC's information on how to use, remove, and wash fabric face masks:
