DIY Face Fitted Mask Tutorials with Free Pattern
Hi All! Thank you for visiting my blog!
I've posted Handmade Mask Tutorials recently. I hope it was helpful. Some of my friends showed their handmade masks made by following my tutorials! Their masks were super cute!!
This time, I'm sharing different style of mask. I think you've noticed there are two types of fabric masks basically. One is pleated one. The other fits face like a cup. Actually I don't know how it's called...So I call it Face fitted mask for now...
It has space inside of mask. So your lips are not touching a mask. And even without nose wire, I don't have a problem of my glasses fogging up!
It's super easy to sew. But you got cut fabrics out by pattern. That's it.
Try either one or both! ( Pleats mask, Fit mask) I use both types.
If you don't have a sewing machine, You can sew by hand.
Fit Mask Pattern
I wrote both centimeters and inches. Before using this patterns, Please make sure measurement is in actual size.
*These patterns includes seams ( 3/8 inches)
PDF PATTERN For Women and Teens
PDF PATTERN For Men
Materials you need...
Approximately 2 pieces of 9" x 7" (12" x 7" for men's size) Fabric (Cotton)
( Outside and Inside or Both same fabric)
2 pieces of approximately 7"-7.5" Elastic ( For men's mask, 8- 8.5" elastic)
Before you start
( you can skip this process)
Soak the cloth in water, lightly wring out the water and iron. (It will dry soon.)
*This process prevents the fabric from shrinking during washing.
*If you're making masks for yourself or families and using fabrics from used clothing, it's already washed several times before. So you don't need this process.
Cut four of pattern out of cotton (cut 2 together, twice)
*In this tutorials, I used same fabrics for outer layer and inner layer.
Match two pieces of cotton right sides together, and sew the outer curve using 3/8” seam allowance. Repeat with remaining two pieces.
Open pieces and press both seam allowances to the right.
*It's easy if you pull the fabric with other hand while ironing.
Now you have 2 pieces of a outside panel and an inside panel.
Put together right side inside. Take elastics and place on the side. (Have 1/2 inches space inside from the upper and bottom line edge)
Pin and sew around the exterior of the mask, leaving a small opening at the bottom of the mask between the center front seam and corner.
Sew 2-3 times on elastic edge. But be careful not to sew other part of elastic together...
Cut the corner
Turn mask right side out and press.
Match the center of outer and inner layer and pin.
Stitch down the seam about 1/4" from the seam.
Top stitch around the mask, closing the hole at the bottom in the process.
As soon as I get ready. I'll list the finished piece.
Thank you for reading!
Stay safe and healthy!
