How To Sew A Simple Face Mask Pouch Tutorial
Step #1 – Cut Out Fabric Pieces
With the patchwork ruler and rotatory cutter it will be easier for you to cut out the two pieces (rectangles) you need to make the face mask bag. In case, you don’t have the patchwork ruler and rotatory cutter, you can draw the two rectangles on a piece of paper and cut them out and use them as a pattern.
Step #2 – Sew On Top And Bottom
Lay the big piece of fabric right side down and fold up top and bottom sides 3/8 inch, run you’re sewing machine to make a hem of 1/4″ with straight stitching.
After you make the hem on top and bottom, this piece should look like this. (photo below)
Step #3 – Sew The Tab
Take the fabric rectangle to make the tab with right side facing down, take one side raw edge up to the center and finger press, do the same step with opposite side. Take both folded edges to the center and press, sew on with you’re sewing machine all along the tab with straight stitching on both edges.
Put the tab in the keys ring and fold tab in half, sew on like it’s shown on picture below.
Step #4 – Prepare Pouch
Lay big piece of fabric right side up on your table, and take bottom side up 2 3/4″, place tab in one side like it’s shown on picture below. Pinch two pins.
Step # 5 – Fold Down Top Side.
Fold down top side 1 1/2″, pinch a couple of pins.
Step # 6 – Sew On
Sew on both sides 1/4″ seam with straight stitching and multipurpose presser feet, stitch length can be 2.5 or 3 mm
Step #6 – Set Up Sewing Machine For Overcasting Stitching
As you can see on my sewing machine, overcasting stitching is number 06, I set up this stitching pattern to 2.5 mm length and 3.5 mm width. You need to check up on you’re sewing machine if it comes with overcasting stitching pattern or not, each brand has their own numbers for different stitching patterns.
In case you’re sewing machine doesn’t have overcasting stitching pattern, you can use zigzag stitching.
Step #7 – Overcasting Stitching
Sew on both sides with overcasting stitching. (or zigzag stitching)
Step #8 – Turn Pouch Right Side Out
Now you can turn pouch right side out, punch corners out with your fingers or with a pair of scissors with round point.
