  • Cut two 7-1/2″ to 12″ lengths of 1/4″ elastic for mask ear loops.

1/4" White Braided Elastic, 15 yd. Pack Available at Nancy Zieman Productions ShopNZP.com

 

Note From Team Nancy

 

Cut elastic for ear loops at longer lengths – to allow comfort sizing adjustability – when using 1/2″ Elastic Cord Stops! After making a few face masks, you’ll find your desired custom elastic ear loop lengths.

Assemble Mask

  • Pin elastic ear loops 1/4″ inside top and bottom mask edges, along both left and right side seams, as shown.

Note From Team Nancy

 

Begin stitching seam on an anchor cloth (folded fabric scrap). Stitch directly from the anchor cloth onto mask assembly, without cutting threads!

  • Press side seams flat, then press towards mask assembly.

  • Along lower bottom seam, stitch to either side of opening, removing Wonder Clips/Pins as you sew.

Note From Team Nancy

 

Optional: Insert nose strip band, or coated wire, to mask inner top seam allowance. Topstitch around wire to hold in place.

Create Pleats

  • Using a 5-in-1 Sliding Gauge and fabric marking pen, measure and mark 1″ from top and bottom edges – along both left and right edges.
  • Place second markings 1″ inside both top and bottom markings – along both left and right edges.

Note From Team Nancy

 

Optional: For deeper pleats, instead place second markings at 1-1/2″ inside both top and bottom markings – along both left and right edges.

  • Fold mask, meeting markings, and creating pleats. Wonder Clip.

Note From Team Nancy

 

Fold top pleat facing mask tap; and bottom pleat facing mask bottom.

  • Topstitch around all outer mask edges. Use a Stiletto/Awl to assist feeding pleats under presser foot.
  • Topstitch a second time – around all outer mask edges.

Note From Team Nancy

 

Topstitching around outer mask edges also closes opening at lower bottom mask!

Note From Team Nancy

Making adjustable adult face masks is a cinch – with 1/2″ Elastic Cord Stops! Ideal for use with 1/4″ wide elastics, Cord Stops feature a 3/8” oval opening at one edge, and a narrower 1/8” round opening at opposite edge. The oval opening accommodates insertion of elastic, while the round opening grips the elastic!

    I know Nancy has been dead for several years now but I feel with this blog especially you have let the love of sewing she portrayed and in courage’d down.
    She would have never allowed important steps to be forgotten or sacrificed for selling products. Your missing some important instructions and a picture of how to install the elastic. For the eat loops.
    Nancy would have never sacrificed product over education

    Agree with SueAnn. This blog has become an ad first and a tutorial second. Very disappointing..

    I think Nancy would enjoy the blog just the way it is! I learn much from each and every one. I really like them offering kits now. How else would we know what they offer for sale?
