Nathalie M. Dionne is the owner of the sewing workshop Culottées. For several years, she repairs and makes clothes. She also shares this passion by facilitating workshops, making with young people. The Mag asked him to suggest to us a pattern of a mask to be achievable at home. The preparation is simple, you can sew it to hand for those who do not have a mill at sewing.

You will need:

  • Fabrics (preferably cotton, linen, shirts and pajamas can be recycled)
  • Elasticated band of a width of less than 5 mm
  • Thread, needle or sewing machine.

The steps:

1) Cut a rectangle of 25 cm x 40cm

2) Bend 2 cm from the narrow sides (25 cm) and press with the iron

3) Fold the top and bottom about 10 cm towards the center, so that the edges folded to overlap

4) Fold the long sides (40 cm) in 2 cm and pressing with the iron. Fold another fold about 1 cm by hiding the edge not finished inside. Press with the iron and pin.

5) machine stitch close to the folded edge or sew by hand with hidden stitches. It repeats on the other side. We will, therefore, have created the scenes for the elastic.

6) For the elastic, use a small elastic plate of less than 5 mm and a length of 20 cm. Here, one can also use the alternative bands t-shirts. One size in the width direction of the t-shirt strips of 1/2 cm. Stretched, they will curl on itself and become a bungee cord. Then, with a safety pin, slip the elastic in the hem. Once past it, we still have to adjust behind the ears.
