Kid and child-sized face mask cloth patterns (with instructions)
COVID-19 has defined 2020. It is important to continue to wear our masks to keep each other safe. Kids might not want to wear a mask and will have a hard time wearing a mask, but making them the right size and shape helps. Many kids struggle with having the mask touch their face too tightly.
In this post, we focus specifically on instructions on how to make a comfortable children’s mask that has a ‘beak’ which keeps the fabric off the child’s face. Do you want more kids’ mask patterns from Printerfriend.Ly? Check out this post.
