Free Pattern - DIY Dust Mask with Nose Wire

Winter in my place means dry and dusty. It's time to make dust mask again. This time I share how to make surgical mask type. It's super duper easy.



All you need is :
- 2 pieces of fabrics - 7.5" W x 6" H
 (Kids Size : - 6” W x  5.5” H)
(widen and lengthen as needed)
- 2 pieces of binding strip - 1.75" w x 5" H
- 10" Long Elastic Cord

  Although cloth face mask may not be as effective as N95 mask in filtering fine dust, but it is better than nothing. I'd suggest to add a layer of folded tissue paper when you wear the mask, which I believe can screen as much as 75% of dust particles, according to THIS report. I'd suggest to use tight woven fabric for better result.




I'd also suggest to wash the cloth mask everyday after your use it. It's always better to make a few, especially if you're highly allergic to dust and pollen. I hope this little bit of information will be helpful for you.

Pattern Update : Added instruction for adding nose wire, as follows:



Adding Nose Wire :


I use twist and tie as nose wire, it works like a charm.  To add nose wire, BEFORE making the Pleats,  sew one  line 1/4 Inch away from one of the long edge, approx 5” long and centred. 



Cut twist and tie approx 5” long (or as needed) and insert it in the tube line you just created. 


 Stitch both end of the tube to prevent the wire from sliding off. 


And now you have surgical mask with nose wire that can properly fit. 


I hope this helps, let me know if you have any questions.
