The Mask, Part 2

I used a disposable face mask as my model. Out of the package, it measures 7” wide by 3.5” high. When you extend the mask fully, it is still 7”, but now it is 6.5” high. The elastic straps are 6” each.

I insert an aluminum piece along the top and stitch up close to it. That’s what I call the nose bridge. I ordered these from Amazon.

I cut my fabric in a rectangle 8.5” wide x 16” long.

The nose bridge is adjustable, and so far the mask has held up well through several hand washing.

You can also steam iron a mask to spot sanitize it between washings.

The crafters of the world are working to ease us through this pandemic.
