How to give a perfect cut to fabric for a face mask?

This facemask requires minimum material, but the technique I am going to show you would give you the ideal shape according to your face. Above all, it will cover your whole face exactly like WHO guidelines. Further, it will make the least chance to enter germs through. It has a slight curve under the eye area and extremely convenient for the people who wear spectacles. Material required

  • Two pieces of fabric (cotton recommended) 6 inches
  • Two pieces of elastic for one face mask 8-10 inches
  • Straight sewing pins
  • Matching thread
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Sewing machine

Step 1

Take an A4 size sheet. It could be printed or plain up to your choice. Fold that paper horizontally once and vertically once. What do you get after these folds? You will get straight and equal measures of both sides with accuracy. Place the paper horizontally in front of you and place a scale at the center crease you just made. Make a 4 cm upward line and 4 cm downward line from the center of the sheet. In addition, the picture below illustrates it clearly.


Then we will draw a 26 cm line from the center of the paper, 13 cm both sides. If you want to make it for large size (L) make the horizontal line, 28 cm long, and the vertical line 10 cm. Name the vertical line X and the horizontal line Y.

Step 2

Produce a line on X 8 cm long and upward and 7.5 cm long downward and mark its end. Make two parallel lines of 13 cm at both ends of the X line to make a rectangle.

Step 3

Now mark two points on the upper parallel line from the center. One is 2 cm away from the center and the other 5 cm away from the center. Remember, draw these points on both sides. The next step is simple. Join 2 cm away points from the center to the 4 cm point on the X line to form a triangle. It will be the space created for the nose.


Step 4

Make another 4 cm point away from the center on both sides on the bottom line of the rectangle. Join them again to 4cm point and make a triangle for the chin. It is illustrated below in the picture.


Step 5

Lastly, mark two points on a vertical line from the center a 3.5 cm long on the upper side and 2.5 cm long on the downside. Mark them on the left as well as the right side. Join the below point to the bottom triangle that is for the chin. The upper side is slightly different.


Step 6

The upper horizontal parallel line has a second point that is 5 cm away from the center. After that, produce that point 3.5 cm downward and connect it with the vertical line upper point shown below.  For more details subscribe to our web portals. 


Step 7

Seam allowance an important tip

A seam allowance plays a divine role. To clarify its a margin to keep for the stitch to appear without disturbing our actual measurements.

So, I make a 0.8 cm seam allowance and outline my whole facemask pattern with a 0.8 cm boundary. After that extract the facemask, with the seam allowance that is the outer boundary of the facemask.

Step 8

Another major proceeding is to make a filter pocket. For that, you have to make that is to trace the former extracted pattern on another paper, but you will keep it 3cm less in width from both sides.


Moreover, the purpose of this decrease is to make an opening for the filters. Make the seam allowance boundary for again for the filter pocket side and, the perfect DIY face mask cut is ready in size M.
