How to make DIY Scarf Face Mask
To make this scarf face mask, you will need a just couple of things.
Supplies and tools
- fabric – 2x 20 inches square – cotton (tightly woven, prewashed) – e.g. this cherry blossom
- 1/16″ round elastic (preferable), 1/8″ or 1/4″ flat elastic, you can also use ties instead of elastic
- matching thread
- scissors (or rotary cutter and a cutting mat)
- ruler or measuring tape
- iron and ironing board
- sewing clips or pins
- sewing machine (a simple machine will do just fine, or you can even hand sew this, although admittedly it will take you more time)
Fabric tip: I recommend using two fabrics that are different in color if you want to be able to easily discern the front and the back.

DIY Scarf Mask VIDEO TUTORIAL
Before you do anything, wash the fabrics thoroughly and iron them.
STEP 1: Mark the fabric
Start by putting one piece of fabric over the other, right sides on each other, aligning their edges. Then find the center of the fabric and mark it. After that, use a ruler to draw a line from one corner to the other, going through the center marking.
STEP 2: Transfer pattern
Place the pattern on top of the diagonal line you’ve just drawn, matching the centers of both and trace around the pattern using a fabric marker
STEP 3: Cut out the fabric
Along the lines you just finished drawing, so that you get a piece of fabric that looks like a big arrowhead.
STEP 4: Set the earloops
Open up one layer of fabric on the small rectangle. Mark the middle of the shorter, slightly curved edges of the rectangle that looks like a volcano.
Put one piece of elastic on top of the fabric so that it forms a semicircle, connecting the mark and the normal corner of the rectangle, the one without a curve. Make sure that the elastic is on the inside of the fabric, not outside. Repeat on both sides.
Put the fabric piece you opened up earlier back over the straps and pin in place.
STEP 5: Sew around
Sew all around the edges using a 1/4 inch seam allowance, leaving a two-inch opening to turn the thing inside-out.
STEP 6: Clip the corners
Clip all corners and notch the curved parts
STEP 7: Turn inside out
Turn the whole thing inside out through the opening you left.. Use a point turner or something pointy such as your scissors to push the corners out
STEP 8: Press
Press well with an iron
STEP 9: Finish the scarf face mask
Sew the opening shut using a matching thread. Iron everything one last time so that it’s nice and flat.
That’s it your scarf face mask is ready!
