Materials:

face mask pattern

thin waterproof fabric for the outer layer (use an umbrella)

thin cotton fabric for the inner layer

lightweight interfacing for the inner layer

elastic

thin flexible wire (I used garden twist ties
)

fabric scissors

craft scissors or pliers

quilting clips

sewing machine

pressing iron

serger
(optional)

tool for pushing corners
Directions:

Cut the outer fabric, the inner fabric and the interfacing as per your pattern size.
Make the layers

Get the outer fabric piece and create the 3 pleats by matching the colored marks and pressing the folds down. For example, match mark A with second mark A, press the pleat down with your fingers and clip in place with a quilting clip. Repeat for all marks on one side then repeat the steps for the other side.

Bring the outer piece to your sewing machine and sew down the sides with 1/4" allowance.

Press the pleats with your pressing iron on a low setting so the waterproof fabric doesn't melt.

Grab the inner fabric and interface it then repeat the steps for the pleats highlighted above.
Insert the wire

Hem both the outer and inner fabric along the top by double folding the fabric in 1/4" and sewing as close to the edge of the hem as possible.

Grab the wire and measure apiece that is about 1/2" smaller than the top of the outer layer. Cut and insert the wire in the hem casing of the outer layer.
Cut the elastics

Measure the elastics. You will need two pieces of elastic, one longer that will hold the top of the mask and one shorter for the bottom of the mask. The top elastic will go around your head through the back so measure starting from one cheekbone to the other, going around the back of your head, then cut the elastic a little shorter than that measurement. For the bottom elastic, sharlottebouniol27@gmail.com 01 Apr 2020

this one will go around your neck so measure starting from one angle of your jaw to the other, going through the back of your head, then cut the elastic a little shorter than that measurement. Make sure your entire head fits through this second elastic. You don't want the elastics too loose but also not too tight as you need to fit your head through the gaps but also need the elastics to hold the mask tight on your face.
Assemble the pieces together

Place the outer layer wrong side up and top with the inner layer right side up.

Sandwich the ends of the top and bottom elastics between the sides of the fabrics.

Clip with quilting clips and sew down the sides and the bottom with a seam allowance that is a little over 1/4", pivoting at corners Serge the raw edges or do a zigzag stitch (or pick your favorite way of finishing seams from this tutorial
)
Finish the mask

Turn the fabrics right side out and push the corners outwith a blunt tool.

Give the mask a last press then you can add an extra layer of tissue paper between the outer and inner layer. This is optional and if you think your mask is think enough and provides enough protection you can skip this step and sew the 2 layers together along the top too, keeping the wire away from the sewing machine needle.
