Free fitted face mask sewing pattern

The easiest way to build a free fitted face mask pattern taking into individual anatomical features. It is also very handy for making a kids face mask out of fabric.

Warning:

This pattern is for making non-medical masks. I cannot give you advice on regulatory issues related to face masks. For information on how to select, use and maintain a non-medical mask, please consult the World Health Organization’s page on masks or your local authority.

To construct the free face mask pattern you will need:

  • piece of paper;
  • pencil;
  • line;
  • the person for whom you are sewing the mask.

Building the homemade face mask pattern

  1. Ask the person for whom you are sewing the mask to put their face to a sheet of paper and trace the profile carefully. Mark the position of the ear.

The pattern is ready, you need to cut it out.

How to sew a fabric homemade fitted face mask

To make the mask you will need:

  • Dense fabric for the outside (e.g. corduroy);
  • natural, soft fabric for the inside (e.g. chintz);
  • thin elastic band or thin ties;
  • sewing machine, thread, safety pins, hook or thick needle.

If you don’t have a sewing machine, the mask can be sewn by hand, a needle will be needed.

  1. Cut two mirrored pieces from heavy fabric and two from thin fabric. Leave an allowance of 1 cm at all seams. And on the side for folding 2.5 cm on the top pieces and 2 cm on the inside pieces.
