Fashion KN95 Cover




Introduction: Fashion KN95 Cover

About: Github site for DIY projects.

KN95 face mask and the equivalent are starting to become mandatory. Even in places where KN95 masks are not required, there is a push to ask people to double up on their cloth masks.

Bonus: This can be used over a surgical type mask to: act as a mask brace (by helping to push down the sides) and increase filtration.

WHY make this ....

  • KN95 face mask are BORING!
  • Double elastic around the ears: (a) looks silly and (b) is uncomfortable.
  • Surgical masks can have large opening on the sides.
  • Wearing a medical mask seems scary, but a homemade mask is friendly.

So, if you want safety and fashion then this is for you.

This is a simplified 4 layer Diamond Fitted Facemask. BUT, only make ONE piece of the "Diamond Fitted Facemask" (1-3 layers total) and then add a button hole on each side.

The button hole allows us to use the elastic on the KN95 face-mask to hold this Fashion cover on.

FYI: Blue surgical masks:

If using to cover a blue surgical mask, make sure you have at least one layer that is tightly woven/filtering (but breathable!). Example of tightly woven/filtering: cotton cloth or NWPP (e.g. "cloth like" plastic grocery bags).

The goal is to have at MINIMUM 4-5 layers of filtering total. Blue surgical masks give you 3 layers, this cover should give you another 1-2 layers.


  • (1-3) Easy Breathing pieces of cloths ~ 6 x 8 inches
    • (The KN95 provides our protection, this gives us back our humanity!)
    • If the fashion cloth is really thin (like what is shown), use a second cloth for the shape. Otherwise it will be hard to find when you wash it.

Step 1: Trace Out the Pattern Onto a Piece of Cloth

Trace out the pattern on a piece of cloth. Shown is a NWPP material.

Step 2: Pin the Fashion Fabric to the Outline Cloth

Pin one piece of fashionable fabric to the outlined cloth.

I used a serger machine with a knife, but you could do this with a sewing machine.

Finished Edges: (Right Masks)

  • Pin fabric wrong side out.

Un-Finished Edges (Left Masks)

    • Pin fabric right side out.

          Step 3: Sew Long Top Edge and Sides

          Sew one NWPP to one cloth piece.

          Sew along the long top edge and the two sides.

          Finished Edge (Right Image)

          • Flip the cloths right out.
          • Follow rest of instructions.

          Step 4: Fold in Half

          • Fold the fabric in half so the the cotton/silk cloth is on the INSIDE.
          • SEW: the two remaining edges together.

          Step 5: Add Button Hole

          Add a button hole on each side of the mask to that the elastic can go through.

          I made the biggest (~1.5 inches) button hole I could make.

          Congratulations: You are Done!
