Handstitching Tools & Accessories

Stitched Face Mask Kit


This kit will make the Covid face mask shown, with fabric left over for another small project. It contains preprinted fabric, two balls of sashiko thread, one leather sashiko needle, and a pack of two sashiko needles. Simply thread your needle and stitch the design, then rinse out the printed markings, cut out and sew up the mask.

The mask pattern is not included. You can find the template for the one shown here.

Notes you should read!

You don't have to stitch the entire design, as you can see, I didn't 😀 The print washes away completely so it is your choice. Also, I folded the plain half of the fabric included to the back of the printed fabric and stitched through both layers. Then instead of lining the mask I turned the raw edges under and hemmed them. The fabric is absorbent and quite comfortable to breath in.  I have been hand washing and wearing this mask for several weeks, I find it more comfortable to my skin than most, perhaps because it is good quality cotton.
