Since the recommendation or requirements that people wear face masks in public, sewers everywhere have been dusting off their machines. Even though there are many patterns for masks, after making hundreds and drafting several patterns, I have designed this pattern for my own use and wanted to share it. I wanted to make the process easy, since many people are making several at a time.
They are available from many places and sold here: Aluminum Strip Nose Bridge Wire for Mask
This pattern has 4 sizes, Child 3-6, Child 7-12, Adult and Adult XL. The adult size is probably good for most adults, but if it's going to be worn over another mask, I included the XL.
Materials - for six masks
½ yard of cotton fabric
4 yards of elastic or 6 yards of ribbon
1¼ of nonwoven lightweight interfacing - optional* (*HeatnBond Non-Woven Fusible in Featherweight, Light or Medium or Pellon 911FF, 931TD, 906F, Bosal Featherweight or Lightweight)
(1) Supply Kit - Includes interfacing, elastic and nose bridges
Purchasing a half yard will yield 6 masks, but a 6” x Width of Fabric strip will yield 2. Each mask requires up to 20-24" of elastic or about 1 yard of ribbon.
