Now that the CDC recommends wearing a cloth face covering, I have decided we need to design our own DIY styled face masks. There are a lot of great face mask patterns out there, but I always like to put my own creative spin on things. So today I am going live on YouTube to show you how to sew your own fabric face mask.

Our face mask pattern is free to download and everything you need for this project is listed below. You can join me live at 12:00 p.m. PST, or you can watch the video tutorial here later.

Let’s Face (Mask) this Together

If you’re new here, we have been publishing free craft projects on our site every Wednesday for the last few weeks as a way to offer our love and support. Since more and more people are wearing face masks now, we thought you might find it helpful if we showed you how to make your own.

These DIY styled face masks have 7 seams, and I customized mine to not steam up my glasses. I also added some wire to my face mask so it is more fitted. During the live I will be using my sewing machine to make these masks, but you can hand sew them as well. I will also share some tips, including what materials you might have at home that you can use for the nose wire and the elastic around your ears. 

When making your face masks, you can choose a few different fabrics that reflect your personal style. And any extra fabric can be used to make a carrying case — or for another project. For example, I also used this fabric to make these DIY beeswax cloth wraps

When you are ready to make your own fabric face mask, just download the pattern below, cut your fabric, and watch my live video tutorial. If you have any questions about our DIY styled face masks, just comment here or on the video!
