Making Masks since March 2020
Shortly after School was canceled in March, it became apparent that our essential employees needed PPE, so I started making masks. It’s been a long couple of months, and hundreds of masks later, I can say that I have dialed in what works for us based on what has worked for others. Below are the patterns that I use for the masks available in PDF to print as needed.
Quick Note: I work with a serger for most projects, this allows me to use less fabric. In order to use these patterns with a sewing machine, you will have to add a 1/4″ allowance to the pattern edges. Triangles on patterns are for the alignment of multiple layers of fabric.
CDC Cloth Face Cover Guidance : This is updated regularly, please read if you intend to make masks for yourself or others.

Directions to Cut 2 fabric of both small and large rectangles are for a single layer window mask recommended with using medical grade fabrics. For a second layer cut 4 of each rectangle. I highly recommend craft clips when working with vinyl to prevent holes and slipping.
