    Quick and Easy Mask Tutorial

    The mask tutorial can be viewed here: . It's pretty self-explanatory, just follow the steps as shown in the video. To enlarge the mask, I cut the fabric 9.5" x 14.5". The elastic is 7". Finished mask photos below:

    I love all the 'oragami' masks that come out from Japan. I happen to have that fabric in my stash, I just looked at it the other day.

        Hmmm. I just might have to give this one a try. It looks simple enough. I do need to make a few more masks for myself since it looks like we're going to wearing them for a long time. Thanks for sharing the video link.

          Looks easy, but I'm wondering would you need to re-iron the folds after every wash?

            Good point. Maybe safety pin it and put in a net bag so it doesn't get that distorted?

            These look like there is some breathing room compared to the muzzle (lol) looking ones.

            I hand wash pleated masks and iron them to help hold their shape. I'll do the same with these.

          Since your pics aren't showing up, did you like the style, comfortable?

            Thanks for the video Myrna, I can't use the ear loops, but will make this as is, then I just make a elastic head band extender with buttons so it goes around the neck instead of the ears. Did anyone notice the machine she used? there's no foot pedal, it's on the machine itself!!

            There are moments which mark your life, moments when you realize nothing will ever be the same. And time is divided into two parts, Before this and After this

              I don't know what happened to the pics. Yes, it was comfortable. It fits me better over the nose and under the chin than the pleated masks and doesn't slip down as much.

                I will make one of these today.

                Note: I made one of these this morning and the nose wasn’t right for me or Jeff. As cute as they are and fun to make I have to pass on this pattern. Everyone’s face is different and we can’t all wear the same mask. They are great if you have the right face for that design. Quick, easy and fun to make.

                  I made 2 of these this afternoon. I wasn't too pleased with the way the top, over the nose, piece fit. The jury is out on this one. I'll wear them a while before I decide. It was a lot of bulk to sew through, esp. over the elastic, etc. On the 2nd one I made, the left a wider opening for turning it right side out & put it in the center, rather than at the corner. That seemed to work better.

                      this is the one I made. didn't use directions, just sewed it up. used twisty ties over nose area but forgot to put pleat in sides until done. but did it then. fits well over nose and sides near ears and goes under chin. I've seen so many masks on t.v. that hardly fit at all. mostly disposal ones. they are better than none though.
