1. Measure the face from the tip of the nose to the ear.
2. Draw a horizontal line of the same length.
3. Measure the face from the bridge of the nose to the chin, going a little under it.
4. Draw as in the picture a vertical line of this length.
5. Draw the rectangle.
6. Measure the nose from the bridge of the nose to the tip of the nose.
7. Mark from the top side this length and draw a horizontal line.
8. To the right of the drawn line, mark 3 cm up and down as in the picture, this will be the side of the mask.
9. Measure your face from the bridge of the nose to the ear.
10. Draw a line of this length from the point where the pencil is in the picture. Tilt it up to touch the top side of the rectangle.
11. Measure your face from the chin to the ear.
12. Draw a line of this length from the point where the pencil is in the picture. Tilt it down until it touches the bottom side of the rectangle.
13. Connect the dots as in the picture.
14. Edit the lines: bend the top line down from the left side (place for the eye), round off the rest as in the picture.
15. Check the result.
16. Add allowances. You can also add an additional about 0.3 cm along the contours of the mask, as it will become slightly smaller when stapling.
17. For a two-layer mask, cut 4 pieces for the mask. Make a multi-layer mask from different fabrics for better protection.
18. Fold two pieces with the front sides and sew the middle seam. Repeat with other 2 pieces. You will get two parts of the mask.
19. Cut allowances to 0.5 cm, make cuts in uneven places, not reaching the seam 2-3 mm.
20. Iron the seam on all sides.
21. Fold the mask parts with front sides.
22. Connect with needles or threads and sew on THREE sides, leaving one small side free to twist.
23. Cut allowances up to 0.5 cm, in uneven places make cuts, not reaching the seam 2-3 mm.
24. Turn out the mask through the side.
25. Use a long thin object to make the corners even.
26. Iron the mask along the contours.
27. Tuck in the allowances of the side and connect with needles or threads.
28. Stitch the mask along the contour 1-2 mm from the edge.
29. Fold the sides of the mask inwards by 1 cm and sew, leaving place for the elastic band.
30. Put the elastic on, try the mask on the face, tighten the elastic knots.
31. Hide the knots inside the mask if you want.
32. You got a handmade face mask.
