Since the outbreak of the recent pandemic virus, I have been refining and improvising this face mask pattern to include all the features that needed to fight against the spread of the disease. One of the features includes adding a slot or pocket for filter media to make the face mask more effective.
Secondly, a nose clamp aka nose wire is added at the top edge of the face mask to provide a better seal at the nose bridge area. Thirdly, due to shortages of elastic band and also due to the comfort of the wearability, head tie made out of shoelace and t-shirt yarn are recommended to use here. Fourthly, a sewing video is made for a better view of the sewing process. You may read through the following dated updates for the details that have been made to this pattern, some large and some little tweaks to perfect the pattern.
I am glad to receive emails and comments from all channels, they are telling me that many hospitals and local authorities have asked their people to sew from the Craft Passion face mask pattern because it gives great coverage and seal. I hope my humble little effort and the face mask pattern does make a huge difference to the world. Lastly, not forgetting to thank you for sewing face masks and donate to those who needed it, you are all godsend angels.

After gathering all the info and pick up which is essential, I have made a face mask sewing video tutorial and it is embedded in this section click to jump straight to the video.
In this face mask sewing video, I have included the detail on how to cut and sew the face mask with a pocket for the filter media. Besides, there is additional 2 new info I have added to the video: a sleeve on the top edge of the face mask for a removal nose wire, and, using a cotton shoelace as the head tie, as shown in the picture below.
The face mask design itself has a very good seal along the face, however, some may still find that fogging happened to their glasses when they breathe. In order to make the face mask sealed even better, a nose wire is added in as optional. Choice of nose wire? In fact, any wire that can be bent and stay in shape is a good choice as the nose wire, for example, twist ties, florist wire, gardening wires, hardware wire of gauge around You may also twist multiple strands of thin wires to make a stronger nose wire.
I personally like pipe cleaner as it also has some cushioning from its chenille stem. I agreed that elastic loops really hurt the ears after a long hour of wearing. It will hurt less if they are not pulling so tight but the face mask will not be tight enough to seal on the edges. Hence, either wearing the elastic bands across the back of the head or using a cotton cord head tie will solve the problem.
T-Shirt Yarn will be perfect too if you have a few t-shirts to cut out from. View the tutorial on how to cut a T-shirt to make T-Shirt Yarn.
