- Load 108 wide fabric on machine. This will be the base for making all your masks. Color is irrelevant because it will end up as the middle layer in your finished product.
- Float 2nd layer face up all the way across your quilt area. Can use 42 wide or 108 wide
- Lay 3rd layer of fabric face down directly on top of 2nd layer
- Secure top 2 layers by basting across top, bottom and down sides
- Draw a Boundary around your maximum quiltable area. Drag pattern to quiltable area and
- Cut 3 rows apart(see dotted line) between stitching -then turn each row right side out to form a tube, iron
- Slice each tube into 9-inch segments
- To make straps, fold one 2.5 inch by 42-inch strip right sides together and sew into a tube
- Turn inside out and iron. (I use a string inside the tube to pull out)
- Cut in half to now have two 24-inch tubes to use as your 2 straps
- Center on side of mask and sew to sides of mask after ironing in 2 pleats to mask
12. Finish by sewing other side of tube to mask and sew all the way to end of tube.
13. Turn inside last quarter inch of strap tube before closing
