Hi!  It’s Jen Belnap from The Smitten Chicken.  We headed back to school this month.  It felt like years since we have been in school!  At the top of our list of school supplies were MASKS!

Back to School Mask

Thermoweb has the BEST Sew-in Interfacing to use with mask construction.  I had to use it to make our masks!

Would you like to make a mask?  Or two or three?  Here are the supplies I used:

HeatnBond Sew-In Interfacing

Mint Confetti Cotton from Riley Blake

Mint Aurifil Thread

Olfa Rotary Cutter

Oliso Iron

1/4″ Elastic

Sewing Machine


Print the Pattern

I used Lorrie’s pattern for my face mask, which can be found here.  Print out her templates which include multiple sizes.  I used the small adult, which was perfect for my high schooler.  Follow the tutorial for construction.

I did a few things differently from the tutorial.  I have a tendency to change patterns…a lot!

I used the HeatnBond Sew-in Interfacing for the ‘lining.’  The Sew-in Interfacing is 9 inches wide by 6 yards.  This size was so helpful!  I wasn’t dealing with large amounts of interfacing for such a small project.  And you can get 25 masks made with this interfacing package!  Amazing!  This will come in handy throughout the school year as we continue to lose our masks!

This pattern makes a three-layer mask.  There is also a pocket for a filter if needs be.

This was for sure not what we had anticipated as our back to school.  But with everything in 2020, we have learned to roll with the punches.  And look super cute in our new mint mask!

Thanks for following along today!  If you would like to see more of what I’m up to, check out my blog, Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest accounts!

Chirp Out!

Jen
