Face Mask keychain holder VIDEO TUTORIAL
STEP 1: Prepare the pattern for use
Download the pattern and print it out at 100% on US letter paper (no scaling). The pattern has two parts, one for the bag and the other for the loop holder.
Cut out any excess paper, and your pattern will be ready for action.
STEP 2: Cut out the fabric
Fold the main fabric in half and place the pattern on the fold. Cut out the fabric according to the bigger pattern piece.
Cut out the loop holder according to the smaller pattern piece.
TIP: Wash the fabric thoroughly and press it flat with your iron before you start sewing. This will prevent the fabric from shrinking or deforming later on when you wash it for the first time.
STEP 3: Prepare the main fabric piece
Lay the larger fabric piece so that the wrong side is up. Transfer the fold lines on both sides of the fabric. Fold twice according to the fold lines and pin.
Repeat the same process on the other short edge.
STEP 4: Prepare the loop holder
Lay the small fabric piece so that its wrong side is up. Fold it in half lengthwise and press with your iron.
Unfold the fabric piece and fold again, but this time, up to the crease in the middle. Fold towards the crease from the top and bottom. Press flat.
To finish it up, fold once more in half lengthwise, and press flat. You will get a small fabric strap with four layers. Pin.
STEP 5: Sew
Make a stitch along the two folded edges on the bigger fabric piece.Finish the raw edges with a zig zag stitch.
Make a stitch across the small fabric piece as well.
STEP 6: Prepare the face mask holder for sewing
Lay the bigger fabric piece so that its right side is up. Transfer the loop holder placement from the pattern or just fold one of its shorter edges towards the right side for about 2 inches, and press flat with your iron.
Put the smaller fabric piece inside the fold, next to the crease. Align one of its short edges with the long edge of the bigger fabric piece. Secure everything with pins or clips.
Now fold the other short side of the bigger fabric piece, aligning its edge with the edge of the small fabric piece on the inside of the fold.
Secure everything with pins or clips.
STEP 7: Sew
Make a stitch along both short edges of the face mask keyring pouch. Backstitch at the beginning and the end of your seams, as well as over the top and bottom flaps
STEP 8: Finish the mask holder DIY
Clip the corners at an angle with scissors. Turn the face mask pouch inside-out through the opening. Push out the corners with your fingers or with a blunt end of a pencil.
Press everything flat on the ironing board.
Your face mask keyring holder is now complete!
You can attach a keychain ring to the pouch and hook it to your bag or pocket. Insert your favorite face mask inside and you are all set!

What a great idea! I have had forgotten my masks too and I agree a pouch is perfect not only to hold but also as a reminder. I don’t have a sewing machine. Do you think this can be done by hand?
