No Sew, Easy Face Mask :DIY



Wow!.. I can not believe how many awesome face mask tutorials are out there. People are so very creative.

Please, Do your own Research on Masks and whether or not you should wear one.

I have been  asked by so many people about face masks and with the new suggestion that we wear them when we have to venture out of the house. You can make a mask  comfortable to wear, easy to wash and out of something you most likely already have. 

Do not place these on children under the age of  2 years old,  or who cannot remove their mask on their own. It is not safe to obstruct their air flow  or anyone's air flow who is  having difficulty breathing. 
 
 I did a little research on the best material to use if you do not have a surgical grade mask,
HERE are the top 3.
1. Vacuum cleaner bag
2.  Dish towel
3. A Cotton Tee shirt.

Look no further I have a tee shirt, I Create No Sew designs,. This project  seems like it is just up my ally.
I spent  the greater part of yesterday cutting , drawing and making all different kinds of shapes and sizes of masks. I wanted a mask that fit the face comfortably and no gaps. This shape was the one I landed on . This mask  is also two layers, another suggestion  they made.


This is all a voluntary suggestion, Please do your research on masks and whether or not you should wear them.  Critical Thinking on everything.     I hope this helps some of you. Now you can make your own mask and feel just a tiny bit safer when you head out.

I would like to make one very strong suggestion.  When Washing these masks I would  hand wash them then dry them on a flat surface If you do this the shape of the mask will be preserved. .
 Make one in every color for every day.  


Stay Safe!
 Love to you all!

Things you need

  • Tee Shirt
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Paper

  • These are the dimensions for a female face.
  • Adjust to the size of the face. 


  •  Fold the paper in half 
  • Cut out


  •  It should look something like this

  


  • Cut a strip of  the tee shirt about 5 inches wide


  • If there is a hem cut that off.

  •  Fold the piece in half.


  • Place the pattern on the folded seam
  • Trace it out.

  • Cut out the pattern
  • Extend the ties out to the end of the shirt.


  •  Cut off the folded seam

  •  Open the mask up


  • Stretch out the ear ties just a little  


  • Tie the two pieces together 
  • Trick : Tie the ties close to the bottom,  that way the knot is behind the ear lobe.

  • Make some in a couple of different colors.


Let me know if you make one and if it works for you.
I gave mine a trial run this morning going to the store. 
Super comfy, which was one of my main goals.

  14. I have made over 3 dozen masks in various patterns; this is the first no sew. I just need one measurement. How wide should the mask be before the straps begin? It’s hard to tell from your stretch, maybe 6” (3” folded)?

    1. 3 inches is about right. You can always tweak it to fit different faces.:) so sorry my website has been having issues and i am just seeing all my comments.
