DIY Face Masks

Make your own DIY face masks from a choice of different sites with free patterns and tutorials for you to follow.

This post is updated regularly, adding new diy mask patterns and tutorials as they are published, so you have a bigger choice to choose from!!

There is a huge shortage of face masks due to the Corona Virus outbreak. This puts everyone in a much more vulnerable position. We have been told that home made DIY face masks are no good and cannot protect you from the spread of Covid-19.

However, if you are anything like me, I prefer to wear a mask when I have to buy essential food from the supermarket.

At least it is better than nothing.

And the way things are going, medical staff have started making their own masks out of shear fear of not having anything at all! Whether you want to wear a mask or not is up to you.

The mask projects below are not there to replace medical grade masks but should give basic, barrier protection, which is better than nothing!

Sew a Family of Slippers

Sew a Family of Slippers

Sew a Family of Slippers -

Sew a collection of booties and slippers for everyone in your family with this free pattern which you can download here. (Download File 1 and File 2)

Years ago (2005!) I was a contributor for a very well respected sewing magazine in the UK called Sewing World.

In this edition, I designed and made these soft and cosy slippers and booties for the whole family.

Sizes included in the pattern are: 0-6 months, 6-12 months, 12-18 months, junior 8-12, adult 5-8.

Make this adorable gingham pair for baby or teddy!

Cosy Toes Tutorial - Little red booties -

If you have a spare hour and want something cute to create with your scraps, make a pair or two of these adorable booties! For the rest of the family, we will call them ‘slippers’! Everyone will love them…from babies, to tots, to mums and dads, even grans and granddads too!

I know it’s still early in the year, but it’s never too late to start thinking about handmade Christmas gifts. Or make them for your craft stall! The pattern is super easy and the tutorial is in step-by-step format and easy to follow.

Make a cute bunny pair!

When printing off your pdf all-in-one tutorial & pattern, you will see that the pattern needs to be enlarged by 166% on a photocopier. You can do this by using a printer that allows you to make photocopies. Most printers allow you to make copies these days! You should be able to change the copy size before you copy them. 

Make an entire collection for the family!
