Today I'm showing you how to sew an easy reusable face mask with filter pocket.
Over the last couple of weeks I have had an overwhelming amount of people ask me for a printed copy of "how to put on your reusable face mask."
Many of you are learning how to sew easy reusable face masks with filter pockets to donate or sewing them for loved ones. So it only seemed right that I make a printable instruction sheet that you can print off to include with your masks.
Hopefully this will help clear up how to properly put them on to ensure proper fit.

Please feel free to print as many copies as you'd like to include with your masks.
As a registered nurse, I'd like to take this opportunity to thank those of you who are making masks to donate to local hospitals, long term care facilities and anyone who is working on the frontline to combat this terrible pandemic.
Without the gift of your time and resources to make these masks, our safety would be at far greater risk. You ARE appreciated-more than you'll ever know.
If you are interested in learning how to sew these masks, you can watch the full video for that right here.
Some of these links may be affiliate links, you can read my full disclosure HERE.
You do not NEED all of these things to begin sewing. However, most of these things that I will be discussing are listed because I have found that they make my time sewing a lot easier, therefore more enjoyable.
The Q&A video was created after this first video, to help answer some of the common questions I was receiving.

This pattern was created and designed by me for FREE. Please feel free to use this simple reusable mask design to sell your handmade masks or gift to hospitals and or family and friends.
My only ask is that you DO NOT SELL the paper pattern template I made. If you are interested in do so, please contact me so we can discuss.
Any chances I can find this make on etsy?
I love the mask, wonder what material you use for filter that can be inserted
These are good masks! Do you have dimensions for a child's size? Thanks!
Arlene marshack says
Where are the instructionsfor making the maskl. I see the video and you only have instructions for putting on the mask
The Child sized mask is 9" x 7". Follow the same instructions to put together.
In the Q&A video I did, I discussed filter options that the general public is using to place in homemade masks. I can't make any statements towards their effectiveness, only to inform of what others are using.
-coffee filters (most popular)
-HEPA vac filters (deconstructed)
-Furnace filters (deconstructed)
-Blue shop towels
Again, I don't know how effective these items are.
Hope this helps, Brie
I'm sorry. I dont currently have any for sale. Ive been making them for donation only to the hospital I work at.
The post is called the same thing but doesn't contain the "Q&A" bit. If you look at this post, you'll see the instructions as well as the video. The q&a was done to answer the hundreds of questions I received about this particular mask style.
Did you need some help with this pattern Carlo? How can I help you?
