Free Pattern : Pleated Mask with Filter Pocket


Thank you so much for your overwhelmed response to my mask tutorial/pattern. That was a pretty simple one. Many asked me to make a pleated mask with a pocket for a filter which is very necessary especially during this COVID19 Pandemic. 




In the past few days I've been making masks (with and without filter) for family, friends, and people around me. Masks are not available now and hence people resort in fabric masks. I'm very touched reading so many stories of our sewing community come together and donating masks to the hospital. I am donating a few to a nursing home near my house, they have been a great help for us for years. It's time to show our support to those who are on the front line.

UPDATE

I got a few questions regarding the pocket esp from beginners, so here's the easier way to do it. I just use a screenshot here, which I hope clear enough. I already updated the file in the shops, so if you download it on 27th March at 10PM IST you should get the new one. If not, feel free to download again or simply save the photos here:



Feel free to email me if you have any doubts :)

I hope this pattern will be beneficial for you all. I will try to add video as soon as I get time to edit it. meanwhile,you can simply click the button below and download the pattern. 





Thank you for stopping by & take care!

  1. What are people using for filters? Any tips or hints?

    I heard coffee filters but don't know specifics. Also a square of "shop towel"

    1. I purchased a HEPA filter vac bag. The talk one and then you can cut to size and have replacements or the blue shop paper towels can work. The HEPA filter is a little heavy in my masks and makes it hard to do any work or west for long periods of time.

  4. I love your tutorial for the easier pocket method! The only thing that I'm having trouble with is making the mask lay flat on my face. When I put it on, there are noticeable gaps between the mask and my cheeks. Any tips to fix this?

    1. Did you use the nose wire? The nose wire supposed to be press to the nose so it will reduce the gap.

  5. I know I’m probably being a little stupid here, but how do you use the tie to hold it in place on your face?
