DIY Custom Face Mask For Children


Now that the people have been advised and some states required to wear face masks when out in public, I started making masks for my children. The basic 2-layer pleated masks work great for me and my older kids, but for my 4 year old not so much. His nose would become exposed no matter how I adjusted the straps. It seemed the bridge of his little nose wasn't large enough to keep the face mask up so I made a custom one with a peak at the center and a nose bridge piece. This passed the jump and run test and solved the problem. Now at this time my children haven't had to go out in public, but when they do I'll be prepared as Georgia transitions into opening back up. The grocery stores in my community require everyone to wear a face mask when shopping and this will most likely be where they come into contact with people (closer than 6ft).  I personally believe they HELP (not prevent) against spreading infection and getting infection.

Disclaimer: Not for children under the age of 2. Do not leave a child unattended with a face mask. The straps should not be tight enough to restrict breathing.  Children should only wear when necessary and not for long amounts of time. Contact your doctor if necessary and follow these CDC guidelines for masks and children. ***These DO not prevent disease or infection. 


 Free pattern here: Print or copy the measurements to draft your own.  Sew center front of both main and liner right sides together (1/4" seam allowance).


Clip curve and press down seam allowances. Pin front and back right sides together and stitch top and bottom edges. 


Clip curve and flip right sides out, press. Cut a 4.5" piece of pipe cleaner. Insert through opening and center at top and pin into place. 


Topstitch 1/4" seam allowance or less to encase the pipe cleaner from end to end. Stitch the sides of the pipe cleaner  as well to keep it from shifting. This should create a nose bridge. 

Topstitch the bottom edge as well.


Serge or zig zag stitch sides to prevent fraying. Press over 1/2" to wrong side and stitch just along the edge to create a casing for the straps. 


Insert straps or elastic. I'm using strips of jersey cut in 1" strips x 20" and pulled to create "string." You can use elastic loops or other fabric straps. Be mindful of children at all times with anything tied around their nose and mouth. Elastic and jersey string is advisable for children as they can pull it on and off if necessary.

  21. It is said that low quality content does not rank but how do we know our content is low quality or not because to know the quality several tools are used but it can’t be found clearly. And where it should be used in a blog inside or outside too when the matter come to promotion, there is also needed to manage content outside so in this respect, when the matter come to write a content for the promotion of the blog then we should use original content only instead of used content.
