Default I Can't Find It!

Another mask tutorial that is. Here are the parts I do remember about it.

It was a pleated mask using 3 pieces of fabric, the front piece and 2 lining pieces. The 2 lining pieces were put right sides together and stitched approximately 1 1/2 inches from each side. This leaves an opening in the center of the two pieces.

The the 2 lining pieces were folded so that they right sides out. One piece of lining becomes the top and one piece of lining becomes the bottom piece. The linings are cut two different sizes. Both pieces seamed together now equal the size of the front piece for the mask.

You can easily top stitch along the 2 lining pieces as they lay flat on the machine bed. You don't have to top stitch through a tube type opening.

Here is one tutorial that shows the top-stitching method I am trying to avoid. Yes, I could do it this way.

Do you remember it? I've exhausted my searches so far.

Thank you!

Janie, That one is close. It would be easy to top stitch the pocket edges of two back pieces first. Thanks!

Dunster, That is the one! I had it book marked and even sent to a friend. I liked it as it uses up some left overs from layer cakes. I've made about 30 just from going through the scrap bins. I remembered the technique and the 10 inch pieces.

I kept by-passing it as the pictured mask isn't quite the one I'm making. Thanks again for all of your help!

That is a great video. Much more simple than the ones I have been making. Love having no pleats. Thanks for posting it Dunster.

I made several masks by that video, but I prefer this demo by Bonnie Hunter - https://quiltville.blogspot.com/2020...re-you-go.html. I think having the pleats makes for a better fitting mask. I used the t-shirt strips for ties and like them much better than anything else.

Tee shirt ties! What a game changer. So much faster than making my own bias tape to use for ties. Great post, thanks.
