(Pocket) in lining fabric.

Step Two:

Sew the Template A, two main fabric pieces, placed right sides together and sew along
the curve. Sew the Template A, lining fabric pieces, placed right sides together and
sew along the curve. Sew the Template B, pocket pieces, placed right sides together
and sew along the curve.

Step Three: How to create a pocket.

Take the Template B (pocket) and iron the side edges of the pocket template over .25”
twice. Then topstitch the edges. Zigzag stitch over the curved stitch in the center.

Or serge the side edges of the pocket. Then fold and iron the serged edges and
topstitch the edge. Serge over the curved stitch in the center.

Step Four: Sewing the mask


templates altogether.

Layer the mask fabric pieces in


this order. Place lining right
side up, then Template B right
side up, and finally the main
fabric wrong side up. Match
the center seams first, then pin
center to the sides of the
mask.

Step Five: Sew the top and


bottom of the mask.

Sew .25” from the top curve of


the mask and the straight edge
along the bottom of the mask.
Clip the curve with pinking
sheers. If you do not have
pinking sheers small cuts along
the curved edges would help.
Make sure you do not cut the
stitching.

Step Six: Flip!

Take all the pins out and flip


the mask right side out using
one of the raw, side edges.
Make sure Template B (the
pocket) is in front of Template
A (lining). Press the mask flat,
then fold the raw edges .5”
inside and finally iron the side
edges. Fold the mask in half to
make sure the mask is
symmetrical.

Step Seven: Adjustable ear-straps!

Take the tapestry needle and thread


one elastic piece through two pony
beads.

Then separate the pony beads and


thread the elastic back through the
bead that is furthest from the threaded
needle.

Pull the elastic so the strap is


symmetrical.

Step 8: Pin and topstitch!

Pin one of the ear straps to the


side edge of the mask. Placing the
elastic and the top and bottom
corners of the mask. Repeat on
the opposite side. Topstitch the
side edges twice.

Finally, topstitch the top curve and


bottom edge of the face mask to
complete your project!
