With the reopening of places like Disney Springs and Universal Orlando’s CityWalk requiring guests to wear face coverings, I thought I’d share an easy, no-sew mask that I found on the Cricut website that you can make with something you have in your closet…a t-shirt!!!
How to Make a No-Sew T-Shirt Mask Perfect for the Theme Parks
What you’ll need:
- Mask pattern (for adults & for kids)
- A t-shirt
- Pins (optional)
No-Sew T-Shirt Mask Directions:
Step 1: Cut out the appropriate size mask template for your project.
Step 2: Fold your t-shirt in half down the center of the garment. Do not use the side seams.
Step 3: Layout the t-shirt on a flat surface and smooth out the wrinkles by hand.
Step 4: Plan out where you would like to cut from the t-shirt.
Tip: With the proper planning, you can get quite a few masks from each t-shirt!
Step 5: Place your mask template along the fold of the t-shirt.
Tip: Using straight pins to secure your pattern to the t-shirt can make cutting your pattern out easier.
Step 6: Use scissors to cut around the pattern.
Tip: Don’t stress about making the cuts perfectly at first, because it’s super easy to go back and clean-up any areas.
Step 7: To cut the slits, fold the fabric & template so that the slits can be cut easily.
Tip: Use smaller scissors for a more precise cut.
Step 8: If you chose to use pins, take them out before removing the pattern, and unfolding the fabric.
Step 9: At each slit, gently tug on the fabric on the outside of the slit to stretch out the material. Repeat for each slit.
Step 10: Wear your mask and enjoy your time outside!
How to Wear Your No-Sew T-Shirt Mask:
- Fold the top edge of both layers down about .5″ (1.3 cm) and bring to your face, with the inner layer against your face, holding by the top loops on both sides.
- Loop the top slits over your ears on each side.
- Bring the bottom slits up to loop over your ears on each side.
- Adjust the fit as necessary.
What do you think??? They’re so easy to make and super lightweight!
