Fabric Face Mask with Window

Here is the video tutorial on my YOUTUBE CHANNEL.


1] Cut the fabric

a] Fold the 2 pieces of fabric in half, place the pattern on top, secure it with pins and make sure you place the side where it says fold on the folded  fabric and cut. [You may cut the two pieces at once or one by one]

b] I start cutting on the window area

c] Make little cuts on the corners like it shows on the pattern.

d] Cut all around. Make sure not to cut on the folder area.

2] Prepare the fabric for sewing:

a] Place the two layers together with the design inside.

b] fol the hems around the window and Iron.

c] Same process on both layers.

d] Place the clear vinyl on top of the window on one side and secure it with the Hear and Bond strips. This process makes it easy to sew the clear vinyl. (if you do not have heat and bond, you may secure it with clips]

e] Place them one by one and iron them around the window. [Make sure not to iron on top of the paper. Lift the paper on the side first to continue ironing the next one].

5] Inserting the elastic:

You may use regular elastic, hair ties or any similar. I am using Farmyarn elastic. If you wish to order, visit my shop at to order. Ships from Texas to US only.

I am using elastic stoppers or lockers to make it adjustable. You can find these ones on

6] Finishing touches
