Materials needed:

  • Fabric (100% cotton is most effective)
  • Fabric Ties
  • Scissors
  • Sewing machine or a needle and thread


  • Measure and cut two pieces of fabric in a rectangle pattern to fit snugly around the face (12” by 6” is standard for adults)
  • Tightly sew both layers together on all edges
  • Cut fabric ties to fit around the ears
  • Sew the ties to the insides of the mask on the smaller edge, repeat on both sides
  • Resew the sides to ensure a tight seal between both pieces of fabric and the earpiece
