Discover how to make a Do It Yourself kid face mask with a complimentary sewing pattern. This face mask PDF pattern has ear loops and a neck band so that it can’t be lost.
In my state kids are needed to wear face masks to go back to school with adjusted schedules. I recognized that kids are going to quickly and rapidly lose their masks if they are not linked to them even when they take them off.
I produced a face mask PDF sewing pattern that has ear loops and it has a neck band. The ear loops are the most convenient way to keep the mask up in the ideal location without having anything review the hair. The neck band has a velcro closure so it’s simple to put on and take off, however if the mask is pulled down to eat or consume it spends time the neck.
There was a lot of thought that entered into this mask. The face part is a curved style for the finest shape, and it’s to be made with 2 layers of quilting cotton.
The neck band is made with cotton spandex for comfort and stretch. The velcro makes altering sizes easy in addition to getting it on and off. The ear loops are truly soft cotton spandex.
The mask will just remain on the neck when it’s not being used.
The pattern comes in sizes 3-6 years and 7-10 years. It’s very adjustable. My two children will be wearing and sharing the smaller sized size, and the velcro makes this possible. My kid will be using the larger size.
