Then cut out the fabric for your mask

Lay the top fabric and the lining with the right sides on top of each other and and stitch the top and the bottom to each other.

Step 5: Ironing

Rotate the fabric.

Iron the seems flat and stitch off the sides on 1mm.

Step 6: Elastic Band

Sorry to say but this design isn't really optimal.
https://makefacemasks.com/ this design will be more usefull as there are less seams exposed.

When you wash it at at least 60°C the Covid19 virus wil be gone. (if there was any)

Question 2 years ago

Why 2 lines on pattern? Is inside line to make a smaller mask for a child?

Answer 2 years ago

The inside lines are stitching lines. To make it smaller for a child you can fold in the middle of the pattern1 cm away so it is less high.

Hi there. I'm sorry to bother you but according to the CDC and WHO, there are no COVID-19 Proof Masks. N95 respirators filter out 98% of airborne bacteria and viruses and vacuum bags are at about 99% but you can't do that with just cotton... claiming that it filters out the virus could get you in some legal trouble as the CDC and WHO are asking people to not claim it even if its N95 or vacuum bags and they're kinda the government. Just trying to save you some trouble and just letting you know. This mask is better than no mask however because it helps you not touch your face. Also, I love the fabric you used. Sorry to be a bother :)

Cotton will not catch the virus. But having at least this is 10000% better than having nothing on your face! Thank you for sharing!

Use pre-washed cotton at 90°C. Than the mask can be used several times.
