Wearing a face mask has become a part of regular life for many of us during 2020. And throughout the year we've seen many creative and eye-catching DIY face masks from our crafting community!
During the early days of the pandemic, the creativity of crafters and sewists made face masks more available to the many who needed them. And they inspired many of us to DIY face coverings from household materials like sheets, old t-shirts, and more.
Once fabric face masks became more widely available, we continued to see creativity in the creation of more fashionable and comfortable face masks. Savvy creators even made accessories like ear savers to make it easier to wear masks for long periods of time at work or school!
We've gathered our most popular face mask patterns of 2020 to share with you, along with some great face mask accessories, resources, and health reminders for you. We hope you enjoy this list and find some inspiration to make face masks a more practical, comfortable, and maybe even stylish part of your day.

Health Reminders for Face Masks
Remember that face masks are intended to protect yourself and others from catching and spreading COVID-19. So it's important to follow CDC guidelines for making and wearing your face mask. According to the CDC, your mask should:
- Fit snugly around your nose and chin and have no large gaps at the sides
- Be made with breathable fabric (such as cotton)
- Be made with tightly woven fabric (not knitted or crocheted)
- Be made with 2-3 layers of fabric
Find more resources from the CDC here, such as: How to Make Masks, How to Store and Wash Masks, and How to Wear Masks.
