This face cover for a surgical mask by P&K Handmade on YouTube is very convenient if you want to make something stylish for your mask and extra protection. It’s a new style of face mask that I haven’t seen before, but it’s unique. Also, it’s a great way to use up any extra fabric that you may have around your fabric stash. It’s a cool design, and it looks easy if you follow the tutorial thoroughly. I think you can flip the face mask the other way and wear the pretty face mask cover on the outside. You can use any type of designs for your face mask cover and it’s easily customizable.
- cotton fabric
- surgical mask
- piece of paper
- pencil or marker
- 2 buttons
- needle and thread
- sewing machine
First, fold your surgical face mask in half (hot dog style) and place it in the center of a blank piece of paper. Trace the perimeter of the face mask. Continue to watch P&K Handmade tutorial on YouTube to create the face mask cover pattern and for full instructions.
Next, once the mask face cover is outlined and stitched on all 4 cotton fabric pieces, reverse the fabric right side out. Use an iron to flatten out any seams and lined the tips of the mask cover to sew on the buttons.
Overall, this is an easy surgical cover face mask to follow along with because of the step-by-step instructions. It’s different and I think worth a try because there are many ways to create a face mask or a face mask cover. Sometimes the original surgical face mask doesn’t match with outfits and some people like to be fashionable, so it can be a great alternative.
