Learn how to make bias tape using fabric in this video that my friend Melinda shared with me. It’s a great alternative to elastic or ribbon to secure your handmade face mask. It’s simply a matter of cutting your fabric, ironing it and then sewing it!

I made my first face mask using this face mask pattern with a filter pocket and I tried using elastic ear loops to secure it to my face. But I didn’t like the way the mask fit and it made me realize that ties would allow a more secure fit and make the face mask more adjustable.

So I’m now making bias tape to use as ties to secure the face masks that I make because I have plenty of fabric!
