Easy no-sew facemask
Create a pattern

To get started on this incredible no-sew mask, I marked 5.5 inches from the top of an A4 piece of paper. 

Cut on the line


I then cut across the line I had just marked.

I folded my paper in half and then drew a curved mask shape onto one side of the paper. I drew this freehand but you can always use something with curved edges to trace the shape. 

Draw an earhole


I then drew an oval inside the small curved line which represents the earhole in this awesome no-sew mask.

For this DIY, I used solid, non-fraying fabric. I folded the fabric and pinned my pattern with the straight edge along the fold.

  • One layer of fabric isn't enough to protect you and allow you to breath. That would require attaching them.

      Thank you for your comment! The choice of face mask you decide to use is entirely up to you.

    Of course the type you choose to wear for cosmetic reasons is up to you, but the CDC and WHO both recommend 3 layer fabric to protect others, but if you are just trying to be FASHIONABLE this is a great idea:-)
