Tools and materials:

- 22 centimeters of elastic (about 9 inches)
- Sewing machine
It’s been hard to get creative in quarantine, especially with fashion. But this simple scarf facemask is Covid friendly and looks amazing. Wear this facemask to stand out in the crowd!
Take a disposable facemask and fold it in half. Then, place it on some paper and trace an outline. Remember to leave about a centimeter of space above and below for the seams, and five centimeters behind.
Draw a small curve on the top and cut out your pattern (following the curve). Finally, cut out your fabric (two sides).
Take your two pieces of fabric and place them right sides together. Then, cut out two new pieces of fabric following the original pattern with three centimeters taken off the back.
Align both pairs of fabric right sides together and sew along the front.
Next, hem the lining by folding the sides in and sewing. Once that is done, attach the lining to the facemask. Place the lining on the facemask, right sides together, and sew the top and bottom edges.
Pull the mask through to turn in right side out and hem the sides. Double fold the sides until it meets the lining and then sew closed - do not attach it to the lining.
Pin a safety pin through your elastic and push it through the hem of your mask. Repeat on the other side. Next, tie the ends of the elastic to form a strap.
Take a 50cm x 50cm (20 inches) piece of fabric and hem and sew the edges. Next, fold the fabric over to form an uneven triangle. Cut across the top to separate the two triangles. Place the triangles right sides together and sew across the top.
Sew a top stitch across the top of the triangles. Next, fold the triangle in half to find and mark the center. Place the center of the bottom edge of the mask on the marked center of the triangle and sew them together.
