DIY Kids Fabric Face Masks. I have posted a video tutorial in my Youtube Channel on how to sew Colorful fabric Face Masks for Kids and Adults too. | How to Sew Fashion Face Masks for kids. | Face Masks with BIAS TAPE. I show you how to sew two face masks styles. One with bias tape and another one without it. Also I show you how to cut your own bias tape in case you do not have at home. This face mask will have a filter pocket and nose wire pocket. If you need to wash it or if the kids do not like the nose wire, it will be easy to remove it. Since this face mask is fitted on the face, I think it does not need nose support but feel free to add it if you need to.
The Fabric of your choice | I am using 100% COTTON. THE MEASUREMENTS will depend on the size of the PATTERN. For example: If the surrounding of the pattern measure 7”, you will need 4 pieces of 7.5 by 7.5”. If the surrounding of the pattern measure 6”, you will need 4 pieces of 6.5 by 7.5” 2
Seamless kids or baby hair ties. [you may use elastic if you wish]
Bias Tape if you with to sew that style.

Sewing machine, sewing thread, pins, clips, scissors, tape ruler or ruler, washable fabric pen and an iron.

DISCLOSURE: *** this is NOT a medical GRADE face mask***. Is a suggestion of how to sew a Fabric Face Mask. CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies), especially in areas of significant community-based transmission. CDC also advises the use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others. Cloth face coverings fashioned from household items or made at home from common materials at low cost can be used as an additional, voluntary public health measure. Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance. The cloth face coverings recommended are not surgical masks or N-95 respirators. Those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders, as recommended by current CDC guidance.
