Whether by hand or machine, learn how to sew a breathable facemask that doesn’t fog up your glasses. This facemask DIY is quick and easy and can be made from fabric you already have at home.
To make the pattern for this breathable facemask, I folded a piece of paper in half. I then marked 3.2 inches from the bottom of the paper.
Then I drew a 5.2-inch horizontal line from that marking.
Next, I drew a line down to the bottom of the folded paper and then marked a point 1.2 inches from the bottom of that line. I also marked 1.4 inches from the bottom on the other side of the small rectangle.
Next, I marked 1.2 inches on the top line of the rectangle from the edge.
I made sure to write the measurements on my pattern.
I then drew a diagonal line to connect the two points on each side of the corner of the rectangle.
I then drew a second diagonal line connecting the top marking to the marking on the other side of the rectangle. Once I had drawn the line, I drew a curve under it connecting the two points.
I picked up a pair of scissors and cut out the pattern.
In the next step, I folded my piece of fabric over twice to make a smaller square. I placed the pattern on the fabric and cut it out so that I was left with two layers of fabric for the facemask.
I then folded the fabric so that it was right sides together and sewed the short, diagonal lines next to the curve.
Next, I added the elastic ear loops to the facemask. I placed the two fabric layers, right sides together, and then put the elastic in between the layers with the loop facing inward.
I stitched around the edges of the mask, sewing the elastic pieces in place as I stitched. I made sure to leave a small gap in between the elastic ends on one short side so that I could turn the mask.
I turned the mask and neatly sewed closed the small gap. While I was at it, I decided to topstitch around the whole mask.
This easy to make, the breathable facemask is just what I needed! What did you think about this no fog facemask DIY? Share your thoughts in the comments!
