Make a template. Be sure to think of your seam allowances. (Tip, fold paper in half and draw 1/2 the mask. Symmetry Simplified!) Find some old jeans to use. Fold the jeans so that right sides are together. Pin on your template.
Cut out the template!!
Reuse the template. Pin on light batting and cut it out. Then trim it down so it is slightly smaller in size.
On the right side, pin in your ribbons. DD's mask uses two 16 inch ribbons. (Boy is she lucky to have a mom who shares her good ribbon!!)
Baste. Then pin in all the ends so when you sew the entire project, you down sew in the ribbon. The "sandwich" should be: denim with right sides together (ribbons in the middle) and batting on top. Sew around, leaving space at the top to turn your mask. Grade layers and then clip curves.
Turn your mask right side out. Use a slip stitch to sew the top edge. This is DD's first time hand sewing!!
