How to make a comfortable face mask – video tutorial

My previous face mask tutorial uses ear loops and I find them a bit comfortable after a while. So this time I’m using bias tape instead.

How to make a face mask with bias tape

You can use store bought bias tape or make your own. I made my own so I could choose my own print.

Fabric collections

The fabrics are 100% organic cotton which is great if you’re wearing them against your skin. I really love these collections.

If you don’t have a printer, you can download my face mask guide (PDF) to get the details on how far apart to make the folds.

My book Turnabout Patchwork

“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.
