Make your own face mask in 12 easy steps!

Back in 2015, if you’d asked us the question ‘Where do you see yourself in five years’ time?’ we’re sure our response wouldn’t have involved fashionable yet functional fabric features for the face, yet here we are. It’s 2020 and, in Melbourne, masks are mandatory.

Watch Fed Square’s very own CEO, Xavier Csar, esteemed leader and resident in-home mask-maker, take you through a step-by-step process on how to make a mask.

What you’ll need

  • Sewing machine – You could also use craft glue or, for the time-rich, an old school needle and thread
  • Feature fabric – This is Melbourne, make it fashionable!
  • Secondary fabric – This can be scraps
  • Scissors
  • Pipe cleaner or thin wire
  • Elastic or thread

Instructions

  1. Cut out x 3 23cm x 18cm rectangular fabric pieces. Use a template… or go rogue!
  2. Overlay your x 3 pieces of fabric ensuring you place your feature piece face-down, on top
  3. Sew a seam along both long edges
  4. Turn the mask inside out (Ie the right way!)
  5. Iron like a pro!
  6. Sew a small tube seam along the top edge for a pipe cleaner/wire
  7. Secure the pipe cleaner/wire in place by sewing a seal around both openings
  8. Sew a double-folded hem along both shorter edges
  9. Create, iron and secure some pleats
  10. Fold and sew a tube seam along both shorter edges
  11. Thread your elastic
  12. Don your mask and wear with a smile… because a smile reaches the eyes!
