Face masks are a part of our lives right now, whether we like them or not. While we don’t really have a choice to wear them or not, we do have a choice to wear environmentally friendly, reusable, cute face masks! We made step by step GIF tutorials for four different kinds of face masks, including two styles for those who have sewing machines and fabric, pins, etc. (see here for sewing style one and style two) and two styles for those who don’t know how to sew and don’t have anything around except an old t-shirt (see no-sew style one or style two). So whether you’re a master sewer or have no clue how to sew, you can make your very own reusable face mask at home. Clear an afternoon in your busy schedule (lol) and get making!
Face mask 1 (sewing)
The first face mask is easy for anyone with a basic knowledge of sewing (by hand or with sewing machine) to make. This mask requires fabric (cotton is best), elastic, scissors, pins or pegs, an iron, a piece of paper, a pen and a sewing machine or a needle and thread. It will take around 15 minutes to make. Have a look at the tutorial that explains how to make this mask.
Face mask 2 (sewing)
The second face mask is also simple to make for anyone who knows how to sew. However, this mask has pleats (folds) on the sides that allow the mask to expand over your face. This mask requires the same materials as the mask above: fabric (cotton), elastic, scissors, pins or pegs, a piece of paper, a pen and a sewing machine or a needle and thread. An iron is optional. This mask will take around 15 minutes to complete. Check out the tutorial to make this mask.
Face mask 3 (no sewing)
The third face mask is perfect for those who don’t know how to sew, or don’t have the materials to sew one. All that is required for making this mask is a t-shirt (slightly stretchy fabric like a cotton/polyester blend is good), scissors and a ruler. It will take about 5 minutes to make. See the tutorial to make this easy mask.
Face mask 4 (no sewing)
The fourth face mask is very simple to make. All you need is a t-shirt (stretchy fabric is good), scissors and a ruler. This mask takes around 5 minutes to make, check out the tutorial to see how to make it.
