I have a small face so many masks, scarves; hats are too big for my small head. Mask was easy to sew and will make adjustments so fits a bit smaller.
I received the item that was described.
Great mask pattern!
Best pattern for fit
size is best I have seen
I’ve made 5 masks total. My husband and I are both nurses and with the mask shortage, we are expected to wear our own mask everyday at work. I liked this design because it covered the nose and chin, even while talking.
Started off with a simple proto type first, turned out pretty good!
Planning to make more..now that I know what I'm doing!
Very nice pattern. Easy to follow.
I’ve made 2 for my grandkids, and didn’t get photos.
Thank you so much for designing this pattern!!!! I am a retired R.N, yet I have many nursing pals still working. I have one pal that works in the ICU and is caring for COVID patients every single day. I am also making her some of these DIY masks. My husband even likes the pattern. Thanks again.
I now have 11 patterns for the face masks and can tell you, they are all different. I do not have the one made up from your pattern, but when I do I will send you a picture. I haven't had to make up as many as I had thought I would but it is a nice pattern and we will see how much longer the pandemic lasts. Thanks!!!
Love the mask but can’t get elastic to finish the project.
I made masks of the quick and easy pattern for a good friend and her adult son, her sister and sister's husband, teen aged son and adult son. Both of the adult sons heard my friend's
conversation with me and shouted out that they each wanted masks. The measurments
chart was ingenious. I'm just finishing a blouse and have three
summer dresses to finish. In addition, I have a Mexican top to mend. When I finish the five I'll
be looking for patterns. Thanks. Ann Schlabach.
I have started on my third one and am very pleased.
My only problem is finding elastic. I have ordered from two sources and still have not received so that I can finish my masks.
I needed to make kid size masks. Some adjustments. Worked out well
This was much easier to make Thani thought it would be. Great instructions.
I think the size is a lot big, but I was able to adjust it to fit. Super easy to make though!
Made one for everyone in the family thanks for sharing the pattern
Made several masks for family. Thanks
Made a bunch for friends and family! Thank you!
I haven’t sewn in a long while. I found the instructions to be thorough and easy.
The masks turned out amazing! Thank you!
I ordered the face mask patterned and was very pleased with the instructions that were included. I am generally a visual learner and am definitely not a skilled sewer. But, I was able to follow the pattern and made great fitting masks for my family.
Easy pattern to follow. Made lots of Masks with this pattern.
I made a few masks for the family.
I made 20 masks! I am a beginner sewer and was able to understand all directions, including attaching the chin pocket. To be honest, the first mask did not turn out, but that was my learning curve being new to sewing. I made several different sizes and everyone I sent them to absolutely loves them. I backed each layer of fabric with Pellon interfacing for an increased nonwoven barrier.
Turned out great sent them to family in California
I have made many for my children, grandchildren (it’s hard to find masks for young children) and for friends. I actually altered the pattern to include a wire at the bridge, and to allow me to use hair ties for the ear loops. I ask for a second measurement so that I can make sure the sides extend to
just where the ear meets the face on each side, and then I snip the
hair rubberband and secure it in the seam at each side. (This way, the masks are reversible if washed
before switching sides.) Everyone loves the masks. Thank you so much!
It is fun to make.
I have never received the pattern. I was just wondering today why it was taking to long to get here.
I am very thankful for the patterns...but I have set it aside as I had just finished SEVERAL from a pattern my daughter had sent me.....however, I am anxious to use yours and will let you know when I do. I can't believe how many different ways there are to do them....BUT...this means more people will enjoy and get wonderful use during this crisis. Yours sounds like and interesting company and so I will look forward to being able to "catch" you again. THANKS again, be safe, many blessing and best wishes. Bev Wright
Loved the design. The convenience of getting the pattern downloaded instantly was perfect!!!
Our daughter made us 2 masks using your mask pattern. I liked the way it covered and fit.
I was asked to make masks for our local hospital. So I asked my daughter where she got her pattern and then ordered 2 from you. I sent one to my friend and used mine. I did both the quick one and the face mask. I've used the quick one for children and friends who needed a mask in a hurry.
Beautiful step by step instructions. Very good purchase.
was eary to do
Everywhere around is out of elastic, so I used rubber bands or hair ties!
I had to make over 100 for a employee group, so putting in the chin piece was a little more than I could handle with so many, so I tweeked the pattern a bit to go under the chin in one piece---well, two, but one pattern piece. I did make a few for family members with the chin piece and loved the way they fit. It was good to have the size range.
I had to make the smallest pattern even smaller for my granddaughter. But it turned out fine. I just adjusted the length to her measurements.
Absolutely love this pattern!
I actually used your oblong pattern but I did the sides differently by just overlocking the ends and then putting 2 pleats each end. Nice and neat and I made 55 for my retirement community.
Great pattern. I didn't need to add the chin part...as just the mask pattern fits under the chin to the top of the nose
I have made so many of these for friends and family super easy pattern to follow. Thank you for helping everyone stay safe.
Made these for an assisted living facility....The clients love them...thank you
Made masks for family members just before state order to wear them. Great use of my scrap fabric.
Love the ease of this pattern I was able to make hundreds to donate to essential medical works.
Some how I didn't realize there was an actual chin cup. This is a unique feature and a great idea. However sewing over the chin area is difficult. There is sometimes a gap where the two layers meet, turning the mask inside out and resewing means less time sewing.
I am an experienced sewer and still have a difficult time sewing the chin layers.
unfortunately, although the pattern is great, our local fabric stores are limiting people to 1 yard of fabric per trip. evidently people are buying bolts of fabric & reselling by the 12” square.... for huge money. and i cant find elastic anywhere ....i can make strings to tie but not very useful in hospital situations.
i m actually going to BigLots tomoro to see if i can find cotten sheets for outer & kitchen tea towels that i can cut up & use for lining.
it is a strange new world out there . now. not very nice
Protecting one loved one at a time!
Made both styles and was very happy with both. Thought the shaped ones fitted better
This was easy to follow directions been making them to donate.
Helped my nursing home with the shortage of masks! Loved the pattern, very easy to follow.
I added floral wire across the nose. Everybody I made them for loves them. They report very comfortable on a long shift.
I made the fitted one for myself and it was just fine.
Have not received it!

The girls at the convalescent hospital loved them
Made several masks for myself and friends. They loved it too.
Love you products.
Whenever my friends see me wearing my mask, they ask me to make them one.
It’s hard to make more since the stores here are all out of elastic material. It was easy to make.
Easy to sew and easy to adjust to different size faces. Made these for my two RN daughters who work in critical care at a large hospital.
Easy to follow instructions.
I’m not that good ...haven’t done any sewing for some years..don’t have much material..tried flannel but it’s to thick
I get a lot of compliments when I wear my mask. I've also been making them for a pastor friend's wife who is a nurse. They love them! I've also lost count of how many times I've shared a link back here because everyone loves THIS mask!
Made these for grandsons, age 3 & 5. The oldest said it was his ninja mask for it's easy to get him to wear it.
Better than some mask patterns, but haven’t made enough of them to have a realistic sense of what they should turn out like
Made 70 of these to give away free to healthcare workers! Thank you! Awesome pattern!
I have made six masks so far for family and they are extremely grateful.
Good job and design
This pattern was perfect for my project. I was asked to make masks for local hospitals and it was so quick and easy! I was able to sew over 60 masks in less than a week.
I have made and am making them and giving them away . Some people insist on paying so I ask them to donate to Dudes and Divas -my church’s dance program for adults with disabilities.
This is a very comfortable mask. Everyone I have given one to loves them.
These masks are quick and easy to make up. I think a filter pocket would be a good addition to the pattern, however right now every mask is a wonderful thing to make for self and others, and even a simple two layer mask makes a difference.
I love the mask with the chin strap. It fits well but seems to be a bit long so I just adjust at the bottom when I cut it out. It fits well and I think does a great job of securing the mask all around.
I made the “fitted” version and yes it takes more time and effort so as to get the seams/rounded edges right, but the “adult” size is spot on. I measured my face the way the instructions say to, and I’d be a child size. Hm? Anyway the adult fits me right. My first attempt I wasn’t happy with the gaps it left over the bridge of the nose, so second time around (shown) I put a pipe cleaner in the top edge’s top-stitch and BAM beautiful!! I’d highly recommend the pipe cleaner trick. Cool pattern!

The simple pleated mask is fine but this one offers better coverage and stays in place well. Maybe I missed it but I would have appreciated some guidance with the length of elastic ~ easier for me to use that than deal with ties. I did figure it out and it turned out quite well. Thanks!
Great fit, really protective mask. Fairly easy to do, like the adjustable elastic.
Cut the pattern, watched the video and was able to construct a number of these! I loved your tutorial will be watching your page for new items to create! The pattern runs large in my opinion.
These masks will make a difference for people!
That was my motivation for doing them.
It was very easy to follow
Good pattern. I did end up pleating the "germ" mask, seemed to fit face better. All my family and neighbors/friends got at least one mask, sometimes 2. I made 50. People were grateful.
I am making more for the hospital. Thanks for your help.
I have made over 200 as of date and donated them to hospitals, health care and friends and family!!!!
I made some with elastic ties and some with fabric. I have so many orders for these, I can't keep up. Thanks for the pattern. The directions were easy to follow and it all went together perfect. I've made about 30 so far.
making face masks for protection for employees against virus
My 85 year old mother and I made both designs. Works up pretty quickly!
Love it.....how it goes under the chin. I have a thin face so had to make it tighter.
I thought it was an easy pattern.
Love the directions
The Germ Free mask pattern was easy to follow and it was easy to sew. I am not a seamstress and I made six of them for family members that are at risk for the virus.
I made over 175 masks for family, friends and our local hospice facility as well as my brother in-laws construction crews. Everyone loves them. This was an easy and quick pattern. Thank you
I actually made the adult mask and it was way too big as you can see. My daughter is an ER nurse and it swallowed her. She is giving to a male nurse and I tried the child but found it a little small for her. Will try the in between size. I like the chin coverage.
This mask was super easy to make! We made a bunch for our work colleagues who were unable to purchase masks anywhere!
