1] Download the FREE Daisy Multifacetica Face Mask PATTERNS HERE, print ACTUAL SIZE/letter size and cut them.
2] Cut the fabric using the FREE PATTERNS:
A] First cut the front layer using the two 7 x 7” pieces of fabric,
B] Cut the pocket or back layers using the two pices of 7 x 8” . For these layers we need to fold the two pieces of fabric in two and also fold the pattern on the thick line.
C] Cut the filter material
3] Prepare the fabric to sew:
A] Get pieces we cut for the front layer and put them together with the right side inside then, place the filter material one on top and one bottom. Secure it with clips or pins and sew on the Curbed area. Leaving a 1 cm or 3/8” seam allowance.
B] Get the other two cut pieces for the pocket/back layers and put them together, secure them with pins or clips and sew on the curbed area.
Curbed areas already sewn. If you wish, you may zigzag or if you have a serger machine, you may serge it.
4] Place the two layers together with the stitches facing out, secure it with pins or clips and sew top and bottom leaving a 1cm or 3/8” seam allowance.
5] Turn it inside out, accommodate, iron and topstitch top and bottom leaving a 1/8” seam allowance. [or the seam allowance of your choice]
6] Fold the sides to insert the elastic of your choice and sew them. The free pattern already has the lines where you may fold. You may fold once or twice. Since I serged it, I am only folding once and hiding the ends inside the pocket.
7] Sew the wire pocket for nose support: Prepare half of a pipe cleaner and fold the ends so it is not pointy in the face mask. Next, top stitch again on top leaving a 1cm or 3/8 seam allowance. Make sure to sew only on top of the pocket area and leaving the sides open to insert or remove the wire before washing.

DISCLOSURE: *** this is NOT medical GRADE face mask***. It is a suggestion of how to sew THE VERY BEST homemade fabric Face Mask with filter pocket. 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.
