Homemade Masks

By PaisleyJade - Sunday, August 29, 2021

With New Zealand in lockdown due to Covid and masks being a requirement to wear when out in public, I thought it was high time I had a go at making some myself with the leftover fabric I had at home. 

I'm not the most confident at sewing, apart from soft toys and a few totes, I've never made much else. 

When I came across this easy and free pattern for making masks online I decided to give it a go! 

I found some elastic for sale at my local supermarket, and dug through my fabric container. 

I found this pattern very easy to follow (although I did make a few mistakes along the way) and love having my own set of masks for the family!

Side note, the length for the elastic was a bit tight with the thicker elastic I used, so add a couple more centimeters if needed.
