Easy To Sew Kids Medical Mask

"Since I first posted my tutorial for sewing an easy medical mask, I’ve received lots of questions about how to make one sized for kids. So here it is – a simple tutorial for sewing a kid’s mask. It's easy to make and once you make one, you can make several. Great for kids returning to school and needing to wear mask throughout the day. Also easy to be laundered. Make them in your child's favorite prints!"

Materials List

  • 2 pieces of narrow elastic, each measuring 6.5″ in length
  • cotton fabric
  • sewing machine


  1. Cut 2 pieces of cotton fabric, each measuring 7″ x 6.5″. I used a bright pattern for the outside and black for the inside. It’s best to use different colors for front and back so children can easily know how to wear it.

  2. With right sides together, stitch a straight seam down each of the two longer edges, as shown below. Trim seam.

  3. Turn the mask right side out and press.

  4. Next, fold the side edges towards the inside of the mask, as shown below, then press flat.

  5. Fold two pleats into the mask, then press.

  6. Insert the ends of the elastic into the side at the top and bottom and pin; pin both the elastic and the pleats in place. Then stitch side seams. For extra reinforcement, stitch along the seam a second time. Repeat this process for the other side.

  7. And that’s it! A cute little kid’s mask in a custom print. This part was easy… but you’re on your own in making your child keep it on! And in these crazy Covid times, I wish you luck.
