My 2nd Attempt at a DIY Face Mask to my 25th

Below is the video I based my face mask on, but I used a sewing machine.

2nd Face Mask Attempt

My second attempt went better. I went off the video. It works much better. On one fir me a guy, size in the video seemed small on the width, to me on the first try. (Show my steps below)

My 2nd Attempt at a DIY Face Mask to my 25th - This time I used a video to try to make DIY Face Mask. #DIYFaceMask

So we increased the size of the material some and it worked better. so my third one, green mask worked great for the width to me.

Instead of 8×15 inches, the 10×15 inches worked.

Also note, cotton is the best material used for face mask. Plus you can wash it these face mask to keep them clean! I recommend you wash them often. That is why you should have yourself several face mask.

But with mask some modifications are gonna need to be done. It fit me good, my wife needed less elastic, had to tack it in some and it fit.

Pleats I do covered are for forming around the face. Plus it still leaves a slit in the back if you need to place a filter in there.

They get better as I made more! So practice makes better! I wouldn’t say practice makes perfect, but no one is perfect but Jesus Christ.

Below I show the steps I took to make these face mask. Plus, I share more of the ones I made.

Step 1

Team work helps. One person do sewing part. Other do folding and ironing. I did sewing part. My wife did the cutting, folding and ironing.

Fold in half. Since we did 10” we sewed in 4 inches in. Leave the middle section. (You use this to turn right side out).

Step 2

Iron flat flaps of the center and lay fabric like below.

Step 3

Tack elastic in the corners. I did a diagonal. Do this for all 4 corners. Note only do the Corners!

Step 4

Then sew both sides. Do not sew the elastic on the sides tuck it inside so it won’t get sewed in the middle area. Do it on both sides.

11th to 23rd Face Mask!

I made 12 of these masks below. So these are Masks 11 to 23! Btw a yard and half of that fabric, I was able to yield 13 masks with scrap material left. One the 13th I used two scraps and sewed them together. Don’t forget to allow a split to turn right side out. So that’s 8 to 9 mask in a yard and 4 to 5 mask in half a yard.

Btw, I think this Jesus Face Mask is my favorite!

My Jesus Mask I made, I made 13 of these.
My Jesus Mask I made, I made 12 of these. Plus I ended up making another one using 2 scrap material to make a 13th after I made my 25th.

My 25th Face Mask Made

My 25th mask is below. I can do a total of 9. I got one yard. As you can see the more I do, better they get. Learning as you go.

This is my 25h Mask I made.

Fabric to make Mask

If I try others or make more masks. I will share the ones I make. Here is the Fabric I have left, some of which I already used. I will make another post with the masks I make.

I’d say each mask so far seemed to cost just under $2-3 to make. (Fabric, Thread and Elastic). People are selling these for $10 or more. I think more than $10 is too much, in my opinion. They don’t seem to take too long to make either.

Here is material I have left to make more mask. I am looking forward to making more for our self and other people.

Mine may not be perfect, but they work!
