Join me for a step by step tutorial on how to sew a medical face mask with filter pocket and nose wire. This fitted fabric face mask gives great coverage and is very comfortable.
Make sure to check with your local hospital for guidelines on what kind of masks they need and if they are accepting donations.
Please note, I am making no claims as to the effectiveness of these masks. These masks will not prevent you from catching a respiratory illness. For up to date info and guidelines, look at the CDC website.

Do you have written instruction for the “HOW TO SEW A MEDICAL FACE MASK WITH FILTER POCKET AND NOSE WIRE” mask? I am not sure if I printed the pattern the correct size, do you have some basic measurements I can check the size?
Hi I would like pattern for adult fitted face mask. With filter and nose pocket. I can’t seem to down load off your site.
Patty Mc Clintock says
Thank you so much for sharing all your mask videos. I just made fitted mask , it fits me prefect . But how about for guys? Do you think it would fit? Or do we need to make a little bigger? If so how much bigger do you think? God Bless, Patty
Can the face masks with nose wire be washed in washing machine?
Thanks for the pattern and great video. One nitpick: If you layer the three pieces in this orientation, you end up with the inside layer with the wrong side toward your face (the main fabric, not the filter pocket). For a solid fabric this doesn’t matter much, but with a print it does – just doesn’t look as nice.

I would like to get the pattern please and thank you for sharing. My daughter is a 👩⚕️ Nurse working in Florida Hospital in Orlando. As you know of the shortages of medical Supplies. She only get 1 mask for a 12hr shift, so I want to help, not only for her but for the rest of them too. Praying for all of them and thanking God for people like you! Stay safe❤️
Thank you so much for your generosity and talent. I am making the last mask you shared. My Grandson is working and not being provided enough masks. I realize you must be so busy, when you have a little time, could you post the measurements for the latest mask? cannot download at this time. God bless, stay healthy and safe.

I like your videos on diy masks.
Do you have dimensions for the medical mask with nose wire and filter pocket.
Also do you have a location where wires can be purchased
Hilda Norwalk says
Thank you for this tutorial. I have been watching for hours & this looks simple enough to make. Do you have written instuctions for this DIY Fitted mask w/pocket & Nose wire? How long did you cut the elastic for each side of mask?
Irene Mayfield says
How do you get the fitted mask pattern?
What are seam allowences on the fitted, adult, and child mask?
Your videos are very good and I want to try to make all three.
Thanks for sharing.

How do you clean the masks?
Love your posts and videos .. very helpful. Thanks. Question for you: I found the fitted mask to be too small …perhaps my printer is off! What should the dimensions be on the printed paper for the thin part (I can measure.) Also, what is your seam allowance? 1/4; 1/2/ 5/8? Thanks ..
Elsa Gonzalez says
Just wanted to say thanks for posting these videos but specifically the pattern. My printer broke and it was easy to take paper put over screen and trace. I will watch the video over and over until it sinks in. Gracias.
I’m so glad it was helpful!! Stay safe!!
