This was a Facebook live video I produced for my friends and family. Thought it would be of value for others who are making masks. The pattern is free and has various sizes available.

1. Yardage needed: 1 yard fabric (45” wide) makes up to 10 adult medium masks
2. 20 bias strips of 18” x 1 1/4” to make the ties
3. or use 4 18” strips of grosgrain ribbon since elastic is hard to findMaking the Olson Mask
This one is super easy to make. I’m now using strips of fabric (1 1/4” x 36”) to make my own ties. It takes another 5-7 minutes to do this but when elastic is no where to be found it’s my only option for now.
So far my mom and I have made 150 masks for friends and family. We finally sourced the elastic! I even have 2 different widths: 1/4″ and 5/32″.
We’ve learned so much after making so many masks and watching other videos online.
Be sure to check out Filti face mask filter fabric. Filti Face Mask Material is constructed using a patent-pending Nanofiber technology which is designed to safeguard you and your family from several airborne particles including bacteria and viruses.
If you have a sewing machine and basic skills you can make this mask with no problem. Give it a try. Before you know it you’ll be making some for all of your friends and family who need them.
Watch the video and I’ll show you how simple it is to make this particular mask.
