Step 1: Pictures of Supplies
Step 2: Trace Pattern and Cut
-Trace pattern on to fabric. Make sure you are tracking on the recommended seam allowance line.
-Mark the horizontal lines.
Step 3: Folding Example
-This pattern is folded into pleats
-You want to fold and touch the lines by color. If you did not print in color. Fold and touch the lines with dashes between them.
-This will be done on the fabric panel cut out in the previous step. Pictures of pattern above is a visual guide.
Step 4: Fold Pattern
-Fold the first pleat on the fabric and sew on the dashed line. This will be the center of the fold on the wrong side of the fabric.
-Sew as close as you can to the edge.
Step 5: Repeat Previous Step
-Repeat the previous step for the other two fold lines.
-Sew on the dashed lines on the wrong side of the fabric.
Step 6: Fold Pleats
-Fold the Pleats flat and tack stitch as close as you can to the edge. This will secure the pleats down.
Step 7: Iron
-Iron the pleats.
Step 8: Add Elastic
-Cut 2 12 inch pieces of elastic.
-Place .25 inches away from top and bottom edges.
-Tack stitch into position.
Step 9: Add Bias Tape
-Add bias tape to the sides first.
-You can use already made bias tape or make your own.
Step 10: Add Bias Tape + Nose Adjustment
-Add the bias tape to the top and bottom edges.
-Place the nose adjustment in the center of the top edge. Sew over the nose adjustment with the bias tape.
-You can use a twist tie for the nose adjustment. You just need bendable metal that will hold its postilion and adjust to your nose.
Step 11: Making Bias Tape
-Use a bias tape making kit to match your face mask fabric.
-Pick the size folder.
-Cut bias tape strips to the size of folder.
-Pull bias tape strip though folder and iron as it comes out the other end.
-When completed you can add the bias tape in the same order as the previous steps.
Step 12: Finished!
-Tack stitch corners to prevent the bias tape from dethreading and your face mask is complete!
