I’ve been making masks all week for family members and others I know who needs them. They are easy to make and completely adjustable to any size you need. Click Here for the pdf pattern for this fitted mask.
What you will need:
- Fitted Mask PDF Pattern – https://www.nikad1977.com/product/fitted-mask-pdf-pattern/
- Cloth fabric, I used fat quarters which are 100% cotton
- 1/4″ elastic – Cut 2 5 inch pieces
- Beading wire – https://amzn.to/2RbPg2S
- Heat n Bond fusible interfacing – https://amzn.to/2Rd2MDE
Cut 4 pieces of the pattern and 2 pieces of the interfacing. Iron the interfacing on 2 of the pieces of fabric.
Sew the front curve of each set of pieces with wrong sides facing up.
Iron the seam down the center.
Place one end of the first piece of elastic on one edge of the fabric and pin it. Take the other side and pin it down the bottom of that same piece of fabric and pin it. Place the other side of the fabric on top and pin. Make sure the elastic is on the inside of the 2 pieces of fabric and not on the outside. Refer to the video above for visual instructions.
Repeat this step on the other side then pin the rest of the 2 pieces together and sew. Leave a space open on one side so you can turn the fabric right side out.
Before you turn the fabric right side out place the beading wire piece on top of the curve, pin and sew a zig-zag stitch around the wire to keep in place. Turn the fabric right side out. Fold in the fabric with the opening is then iron flat. Continue ironing the rest of the fabric as well
Finally, topstitch around the entire mask making sure when you get around to the beading wire you sew underneath. This not only will create a casing keeping the wire in place. It will also save your sewing needle from breaking.
