Traditional Scarf + Contour Mask
Additional Sewing Tips for Each Step:
Mask and scarf cut 2 of fabric
- My scarf measurements – 60″x13″ I chose to cut my fabric on the crosswise grain. I wanted to use the raw selvage edge for the fringe look. To measure the length of your scarf, loosely drape the measuring tape with one complete loop loosely around your neck. Cut your fabric to your desired length. Make sure to cut a small notch at the top of each scarf center front. Follow along with step one shown below.
- Match up the center front of your mask with the center front notch as shown in step 2 below.
- Measure the elastic to fit comfortably around your ears. Complete step 3 as shown below.
- Start at the top edge of the scarf sewing all along the length, and around the outer edge of the mask. Continuing along the other side of the scarf. Sew straight across the bottom edge leaving the sides open. Now entering through the side opening, pull the mask and scarf right side out. Press and stitch down the remaining sides.
Step 1: Sew each center front seam on your mask and press
Step 3: Place the elastic for the mask facing inward and pin before sewing
Step 2: Pin the bottom of the mask along the top center front of scarf
Step 4: Pin and sew along the top edge of the scarf and top edge of the mask
Step 5: Continue sewing along the bottom edge leaving sides open to turn your scarf right side out, then press.
Triangle Scarf + Pleated Mask
First, create your pleated mask using the tutorial here.
The scarf itself is a simple 25″ square. I frayed the edges a bit, like I show in this tutorial. Rather than folding the square into a perfect triangle though, I recommend folding it a little less than halfway so you have a longer layer and a shorter layer like you see to the left here.
Pin the bottom edge of your mask along the top fold of your scarf. Unfold and stitch, securing the mask onto the scarf.
Refold your scarf and it’s ready to wear! Whenever you don’t need your mask, you can tuck it inside and wear your scarf like a normal winter accessory!
