Introduction: Adjustable No-Sew Mask
This is a simple and easy mask you can make with a cotton shirt. It includes adjustable straps and no sewing is required.
- Cotton T-Shirt
- Sharp Scissors
- Bobby or Safety Pin
- Hot Glue (optional)
Step 1: Begin Laying Your T-Shirt on a Flat Surface
Cut a 6in x 8in square, starting at the bottom of the shirt
Step 2: Your Mask Pieces
After you have cut out the square, use the remainder of the fabric to cut two long strips of fabric that are approximately 10-12in. Once you have cut the square you should notice that the side with the bottom hem now has a hollow tunnel running horizontally
Step 3: Pull
Next, take the two long strips of fabric and pull on them to stretch them out
Step 4: Securing the Second Side of the Mask
There are two methods of securing the second side of the mask
- If you have glue, fold the fabric 1in. down and glue the raw edge to the fabric
- If you don't have glue, cut small holes down the fabric, leaving at least ½ in. between the holes
Step 5: Finishing the Mask
Finally, secure the previously made fabric strips to either a bobby or safety pin and thread through the other side of the mask
- If you glued the side of mask, it will need to be thread through the tunnel
- If you cut holes, simply thread the strip through the holes as shown in the second picture
