Kids face mask

Kids face mask
Make a kids face mask to protect your children. To make a home-made children's face mask, use this DIY face mask tutorial to build an individual pattern for a face of any size. The mask, made to individual sizes, has the best fit to the face. You can draw funny pictures on a mask or use a bright fabric so that children enjoy wearing such a kids face mask. The elastic band can be replaced with fabric ties. This reusable mask must be changed frequently; for disinfection, wash it with antibacterial powder and iron it with a hot iron and steam.

28. Try a pattern on a piece of fabric - cut out two parts of the pattern and sew along the middle seam, adding +1 cm to the allowances. Try it to the face and adjust the pattern. Also add about 3 mm to the pattern on the top and bottom sides (the mask will decrease when sewing), and add 1 cm to the allowances along the contours, 2 cm to the allowances on the sides.
