Pleated pattern with ties, no pocketdownload pattern
- Johns Hopkins Hospital accepts these
- No solids, no blue & white prints
- Ties don't need to be 48" long - you can get away with 44" easily
- The pattern tells you to sew RS together, leaving 1" open to turn right side out.
- If you want to do it this way, leave more like 2-3 inches to turn it back RS out
- But, don't do it this way. Just sew the top and bottom, leaving the side edges raw. They will be encased in the tie/binding in the last step.
- After you have made your pleats - the finished side measurement is 3.5"
- If you have a bias tape making gadget, that will make it a lot easier.
- If you have a binding attachment, that is another way to make it easier.
Fitted pattern with Hair Ties, with pocket
- Youtube Tutorial
- they don't fold the fabric, they cut each piece individually.
- So you only need half the pattern pieces they provide - just cut it on folded fabric
- Hair ties are pretty small, so this mask goes all the way to the ear. I altered this pattern by cutting 1.5" off the piece that goes up against the ear.
- Instead of a hair tie, I can thread any kind of elastic or tie through the channel.
- Works GREAT for ties.
- Not be stretchy enough, or thin enough to work well around the ears
Medical Grade Fabric - UFL Prototype 2
This mask is sewn from a material that is used when sterilizing medical instruments in autoclaves.
I imagine it would also be good to use as filters in cloth facemasks with pockets.
