One Tie Face Mask Tutorial – No Elastic, No Interfacing, No Bias Tape – Family Sizing

With supplies and resources scarce, and with traveling to stores discouraged, I wanted to make a face mask that required as few specialty supplies as possible.

I decided to make a face mask with ties instead. The ties can be made with 1.25 inches (by width of fabric) strip of cotton fabric. It also only has a single tie in the back for easier wear.

Thanks to my mom and her fabulous testing of face masks, she gave me dimensions for face masks of multiple sizes.

Pocket (Gift Card) Pouch

With the fabric I had left over from the Toilet Paper Drawstring bag, I wanted to make another little project. A gift card pouch seemed perfect!

I had enough fabric to make the pouch in two sizes.

The smaller pouch is perfect for gift cards, and the larger pouch can hold items that are a little longer.

They are super easy to make, 1/10 on the difficulty scale. They don’t take much fabric, they’re very fast, and make great gifts!

Quick Overview:

Toilet Paper Drawstring Bag

As I was contemplating what my next sewing project would be, I couldn’t help thinking about what is on everyone’s minds at present. Toilet paper.

Yes, it is a rare and precious commodity nowadays. So! What to do…

Well, if you feel the need to travel with your toilet paper so you are prepared for those “just in case” moments, here is a little drawstring bag that is perfect to carry it!

Of course, you don’t need to use your drawstring bag to tote around your toilet paper, it can carry a whole lot of different things, but the toilet paper sure fits nice!

This is a great little project to practice sewing curved pieces to straight pieces. It doesn’t take a lot of fabric and it is quick.
