If you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen the mask we recently posted. To make this face mask, you do not have to have a sewing machine, you can hand sew it. This is not a medical mask but it will remind you not to touch your face, and will prevent you from sharing/getting larger droplets.
What you will need:
- A Pretty/Fun material (for the front)
- Plain material (for the back)
- A layer of felt / other filter material (if you have)
- Sewing Cotton/Thread
- Flat or Round Elastic / Hair Ties / String
- Sewing Machine or Sewing Needles
First we need a template. There are lots of templates online, but we liked the ones shared by Craft Passion. We have included the main templates below:
You will need to cut out 2 of main fabric template in your pretty material and 2 of your lining fabric in your plain material (we decided to do 4 for a double lining). You will then need to sew it all together. We found this awesome online tutorial (below) showing how to make it step by step.
Tip/Idea: Before sewing the ends closed, we cut out a layer of felt in the shape of the mask and inserted it in between our three layers for a bit more protection.
And you are done! We would love to see your masks ♥ Share them in the comments below.
