In order to share out more so that you can sew your own washable and reusable face mask, I made the pattern into 3 sizes, small kids (around the age of 3-6, young kids (7-12) and Teenage & Adult. Not recommended for baby. It is not medical rated but good enough to filter out those haze particles and bad smell.
Before you begin sewing, it would be ideal if you pre-wash all textures before sewing, and wash it again preceding wearing it. Right now, utilized knitting weight cotton on the two layers, which is adequate for fundamental filtration. Moreover, I sewed some in cotton wool as the coating as well, the filtration is far superior yet not prescribed for little children as it may be somewhat hard for them to breath through appropriately.
Aside from wearing it on a murky day, the face cover would be useful for the motorcyclists, bicyclists and whoever needs to go on a substantial traffic street. Fumes gas from engine vehicles is even hazardous and undesirable! Likewise, you can utilize it on your days off, to forestall spreading the viruses by means of your respiratory release.

Instructions for Type A: Normal face mask
- STEP 1:
Fold the main fabric into halve with the wrong side facing each other, pin the paper pattern onto the double-layered fabric. Cut the fabric with 1/4″ allowance, except the ear side. Cut the fabric at the ear side with 1″ seam allowance (1.5″ if you are using t-shirt yarn as the head tie).
Insert the tracing paper between the layer, trace sewing lines with tracing wheel.
Remove pins and paper pattern, get set to sew.
NOTE: If you are using templates that already have seam allowances included, you do not need to add any more seam allowance. The same applies to the lining in the next step.
- STEP 2:
Repeat the same as the main fabric, except the ear side seam allowance. Cut the fabric at the ear side with zero seam allowance.
- STEP 3:
Turn the face mask main piece with right side facing each other, sew the centerline of the face mask.
- STEP 4:
Clip curve along with the seam allowance, be careful and don’t accidentally clip on the stitches.
- STEP 5:
Press seam allowance to one side, topstitch near to the seam line on the side where the seam allowance is.
- STEP 6:
Repeat the sewing on the lining part.
- STEP 7:
Flip the lining and place onto the main face mask, align the center seam line, pin and sew the top and bottom lines.
- STEP 8:
Turn the face mask right side out. Press seam neatly and topstitch near the edge.
- STEP 9:
This is how it looks like from the inside at this stage. The main fabric of the side ear area is longer than the lining piece. This is going to be the pocket of the elastic band.
- STEP 10
Fold in 1/4″ at the raw edge of the side ear, fold again so that the first fold edge is 1/4″ from the lining raw edge. Sew a straight line down, don’t forget to perform a few back stitches to lock the thread end.
- STEP 11:
Measure and cut the length of the elastic band needed (usually around 6″-8″ depending on the size of the face).
Insert the elastic band through the pocket and tie a dead knot to the ends.
- STEP 12:
Repeat the same to the other side. Pull the elastic band until the knots are hidden in the pocket.
Wear and breathe normally!
