Face Mask with Filter Pocket

Face Mask with Filter Pocket

Face mask I am sewing with a filter pocket and using bias tape I made as the ties (or you can use ribbon). I like this pattern the best because of the secure fit, the filter pocket is the same size as the mask and the pattern was developed by consulting with a hospital employee.

Fabrics & Filters

Fabrics & Filters

Discover the best fabric to use to make a face mask. Plus what can you use to make a filter? This is how I discovered that reusable grocery bags can be used as filters (the material is similar to that used to make masks)

Ear Savers made with Cricut

I am making these Ear Savers from plastic school folders for my brother who has to wear a mask all day at work.

How to make bias tape from fabric. This is the best option to secure your face mask after I explored using elastic, hair ties and ribbon. Fabric is the easiest material to obtain (if you don’t have it, start cutting up tablecloths or bedding like duvet covers), it gives your face mask a more secure fit (it’s adjustable) and it resolves the issue of any discomfort due to elastic going over your ears.

✂️DIY Face Masks: Fabrics & Filters

by Freebies4Mom on May 5, 2020 4:04 pm

✂️DIY Face Masks: Fabrics & FiltersI like this post by Jennifer Maker that helps you determine the best fabric for your DIY Face Mask and it also talks about filter fabrics. After reading it, I decided to switch from using a 30 MERV air filter as filter fabric to using fabric-like reusable grocery bags. I’m simply cutting up the resuable grocery bags I have and inserting them into the cotton face masks I am sewing.

Be sure to checkout my DIY Face Mask Resources post that rounds up everything I’ve shared to help you make your own face masks (with or without a sewing machine).
