DIY Face Mask Pattern | How To Sew A Face Mask

To help our families stay safe and protect from the Covid19 virus, the CDC is recommending wearing protective face mask coverings.  Here's an easy to sew face mask pattern I've been making


There are many face mask patterns around, but I've found this one the easiest to sew.  It takes about 10 minutes from cutting the fabric to finished product. I've seen them selling on Etsy for about $15.00

Some are no sew face mask patterns, others are folding face mask patterns.

I had some leftover material from when I sewed all the clothing for my granddaughter when she had a hip dysplasia operation in Boston one summer and was in a full body cast.  Spica Cast clothing is difficult to find, so I brought out my Janome sewing machine and took it to task.


Here's some of the face masks I made from a pattern I found on Tianas Closet blog.  She's a pattern designer located in Canada.

I used hair ties for the ear attachments.

I made about 20 for family and friends.  They were made out of cotton fabric for easy breathing.  Some were lined with fleece.  The masks for the boys and adult males I used black cotton fabric.

This face mask pattern comes in 3 sizes - Adult Female, Adult Male and Child. There's a link at Tianas Closet for a PDF pattern that you can download for free.
