Learn to DIY 2 Simple No-Sew Masks
Tools and Materials:
To make this incredible no-sew mask you can use any pair of leggings or stretchy T-shirt sleeves. I decided to use this pair of leggings and started by cutting a section out of the leg.
Next, I made sure the piece I had cut was straight by snipping off any extra fabric sticking out.
I then folded in the raw edges at the top and bottom of my piece of fabric.
It was then time to move on to earloops. I cut a long strip of fabric from a knit fabric t-shirt. Since there is no elastic used in this face mask, it’s great to use stretchy fabric for the earloops. I folded my strip in half and cut at the fold so that I would have two strips of fabric.
I took my strip and fed it through the side of my piece of fabric. Once it was through I pulled, gathering the mask fabric and tied a knot at the two ends, creating an ear loop.
I pulled the loop so that the knot would be in between the mask fabric. This would keep my ears feeling comfortable and add to the aesthetic of the mask. I repeated this on the other side to make a second earloop for this awesome mask.
This mask was so simple and easy to make and is just so comfy! I love it! You can also insert a filter inside the mask before you wear it.
For this next no-sew, no elastic mask I cut the mid-leg from a pair of stretchy leggings.
Next, I cut two slits on each side of the fabric and folded the top bits of the fabric inwards.
I double folded the fabric flaps on each side and made small incisions so that I would have a few holes on either side of the mask.
It was then time to thread through some more stretchy fabric. I made sure the flaps were folded once over and thread another strip of T-shirt through the holes.
I then tied a knot at the end of each strip to create earloops.
For the final step, feel free to place a filter inside the mask for a little extra protection.
I just love that I can make a mask without doing any sewing! What other no-sew mask ideas do you have? Let me know in the comments below!
