6 Easy and Best face Mask Sewing Projects



So, masks have now become an inevitable part of our lives and according to health experts, we cannot do away with it at least till the middle of next year.


I have been designing, DIYing, and sewing different types of masks for different people, season, and expertise levels. From simple paper towel masks and no-sew masks to stylish scarf masks, I have been enjoying what I have been doing.


There are masks you can make in less than 10 minutes but still highly effective. Most of these masks have filter pockets and nose wire casing to ensure maximum protection possible.


These pockets are all designed in such a way that you can remove the filters and wires for washing purposes.


When I mention my masks, a special mention is required for my hand- sew mask which I have made specifically for those who don’t have a machine or don’t know how to use it. This has been my most famous mask pattern to date.


These DIY mask-making tutorials do not require a high level of expertise. Most of them require just straight line stitches and can be made with your leftover scraps. They are so fun and interesting to sew that you would want to make all of them!


I loved designing and making all of them. What I loved most is that I could make masks and donate them to people who actually need them.
