How to make kids pleated face mask, first what I did I decided to make my own print, I copy a print off the internet, and now I’m going to use my heat press machine. I’m using heat transfer paper that works on cotton, by using my inkjet printer, to print out the print on the heat transfer paper. Click on the link where are you can buy my face mask pattern. What this pattern does, it give you the flexibility to also do embroidery, and to use your own design. I will show you step-by-step how to sew a face mask for kids and how to make one. You don’t need the expensive embroidery machine or a expensive heat press machine because it’s so simple to apply design on the pattern. You can also use whatever fabric you want, the possibility is endless. Also I have a video where you can also watch how I sew it together and made it. I made two different pattern, one is face cover and the other pattern is pleated, it also come in Adult size and kids.
First I print out my design, on a heat transfer paper, on my white fabric. Then I’m going to use that fabric to make my pleated face mask for kids.
I’m going to place the pattern on my fabric and cut the piece out.
Now I’m gonna take my scissors and snip at the seam allowance to place my notches.
Now I’m going to place the pattern on the fabric to cut out the interlining fabric
I am going to take my scissors and snip at the seams to create notches
Now I’m going to place the nose wire, cover it with the seam allowance, top this stitch quarter of an inch
Now you gonna tops stitch it with the nose wire inside 1/4 of an inch
Now you’re going to fold it 1/4 of an inch and is this stitch it
Now what you’re going to do is fold the fab in pleats, Easy way to do it is to use Clips or to iron, if you don’t have clips ironed it, if you don’t want to use an iron use pins, on the potter I have written the word fold, so you would know where to fold it
Now you’re going to place the two fabrics together and at the bottom part of the mask. You are going to top stitch 1/4 of an inch
you going to take the elastic, measure it 10 inches, and then you’re going to tie it in the knot, it should measure 4 or 4 1/2 inches depending on the elastic
Now you gonna take your seam allowance on the side of the mask, and you’re going to topstitch stitch it 3/8 of an inch, you’re going to cover the knot of the elastic and sew, it’s better if you use the clips to hold the knot while you sew
Now you’re going to back stitch it before you start and back stitch when you finish sewing and you will repeat the steps on the other side
Now you’re all done! Congratulations, you have completed your face mask for kids.
