FREE FACE MASK INSTRUCTIONS
This is a free resource for the home crafter, below are step by step instructions to assist you in creating your free face mask.
We have made three patterns which can be downloaded free. Please click on the buttons above to download your pattern. The patterns available are Men’s, Women’s / Teenager & Kids.
1. Fabric for front of mask 14” X 7”. You could consider up cycling your pre washed favorite old shirt.
2. Filter material 10” X 5”. We are using 4 oz Wadding. You can use whatever is to hand, possibly a piece of toweling material.
3. Fabric for the rear of mask 14” X 6”. We are using Poly Cotton. We have also used a pre washed T Shirt material.
4. Elastic cord depending on the size of head 12”-18”. If you do not have this to hand you could use twine, cord, ribbon, even an old shoe lace. Remember to check your length as these will not stretch & will have to be tied.
1. Sewing machine or you can hand sew?
2. Chalk, marker, pencil, pen or anything which you can mark the material with.
3. Scissors or cutting wheel.
4. Pins, to pin pattern to fabric when marking & cutting, not essential.
1. Download & open the PDF free mask pattern in the size required.
2. Print the pattern out. N.B. Make sure that you select print to ACTUAL Size. Once printed check that the rectangle at the top of the page is 2” wide.
3. Add a seam allowance to your
pattern. This can be done by sellotaping two pens together & tracing the
pattern. At the flat part of the pattern we add 1” this makes it easy to fold
in the last step. You do not have to do this but it can be quite difficult to
get this fold nice & neat if not.
5. On your next piece of front material flip the pattern over & repeat step 4. You have both front facing pieces cut now.
6. Next mark out and cut the lining material, I am using the same here as the front. Draw your ¼” seam allowance front, top & bottom. We do not need a seam allowance at the back.
Congratulations! Your mask is finished.
