No Sew Mask
Updated: Nov 12
And here is one for those of you that don't know how to sew at all.
What Are The Best Materials for Making DIY Masks?
What you need is a t shirt, a pair of scissors a ruler a tape measure and a marking pen.
lay your t shirt flat on the table and cut under the armpits from side to side.
Fold this tube in half so that you have a smooth folded side on the left side.You have 2 folded layers. The body of the shirt should be enough for at least 2 or 3 masks.
From the top left corner mark in 14.5cm.
From the top left corner mark down 12.5 cm.
Mark half of the 12.5 cm which is at the 6.25 mark.
From this point draw a straight line across of 14.5 cm. Mark 9.5 cm and draw a line up and down at this point. Draw another 12.5 cm line parallel to the one on the left.
On the line that meets the 9.5 cm mark, measure down 2 cm and from the top left corner draw a line down to the 2 cm mark.
From the 2 cm point draw a half circle as you see it below.
And continue with the half circle down to the bottom of the mask and curve it towards the folded 12.5 cm line.
Draw an oval 1.5 cm in parallel to the outer oval line.
This is what your pattern should look like.
And this is what it looks like after cutting it out. It is still folded.
Open the 2 folded layers out and you now have a double layered mask with ear holes. You could slip a coffee filter between the two layers.
This is what it should look like from the side
And this is what it looks like from the front.
These masks are very quick to make. Make a cardboard pattern and use that to mark on the t shirt.
