We’re headed into another weekend and whether sewing is on your to-do list or not, I’m betting face masks are going to trickle into your weekend in one way or another. I’m hoping this complete list of mask making options will be just the resource you need.
Maybe you’ve sewn hundreds of masks and are looking for fresh supplies or maybe you have finally decided that it’s time to venture out into the world and you’d like to make a mask for you or a family member. Here you will find links to all of the sew and no sew masks that I have created, as well as video instructions, supply links, and related sewing tutorials.
Sewn Mask Options
Serger Mask – this one is super fast to sew, but it does require a serger. You can use elastic, knit, or any type of strips for the ties. It does not have a filter pocket. It is washable.
Face Mask with Filter Pocket – This is sewn on a regular sewing machine. You can use knit strips or elastic for the ties. It does have a pocket for a filter. You can use knit, quilting cotton, or flannel for this mask.
No Sew Mask Options
No Sew Mask from T-shirt – this is a really fast option. No sewing required. This mask has ties that tie around the back of the head. There is a pocket in the way it is folded where you can add a filter. It is washable.
No Sew Mask from Leggings – this option is great when you have smaller pieces of knit material. There is a free pattern to download. The mask fits over the ears and is double-layered so that a filter can be inserted in between the two layers. It is washable.
Ear-Saving Button Bands – these take seconds to make. Adjust the elastic length to fit the particular mask being worn. Requires 1/2″ elastic or stretchy fabric scrap. Great scrap buster.
Supply and Pattern Roundup – Links to tons of in stock supplies such as elastic, filters, fabric, and basic sewing supplies. Links to other pattern shapes and sizes included as well.
