Cloth Mask Tutorial

Time required: 1-2 hours

Our Brother Sews Ambassadors, Laura Pifer has created a quick and easy tutorial for making your own masks using supplies you most likely already have at home. Check it out below to whip up some masks in no time for everyone in your family. And if you find yourself with a little extra time and materials, maybe you can make additional ones for people who might need them. We hope you enjoy this project and that it brings you comfort during this uncertain time.

Materials and supplies

  • Tightly woven cotton: other alternatives (Batik, cotton duck)
  • 1/4″ – 1/8″ elastic
  • Alternative options: Knit jersey cut in strips, self-made fabric straps, or bias tape
  • Sewing Machine: I’m using the Brother SE1900
  • Basic cutting and sewing notions
