Easy upcycled face mask using a pair of leggings
I was so impressed when my daughter made this easy upcycled face mask from a pair of leggings that I wanted to share it with all of you! This pattern will fit a small adult’s face (the elastic is a little tight on me!) or a child.
Firstly, take a pair of child’s leggings, ideally ones that have been outgrown or are never worn.
Cut off the legs so you have about 22cm of fabric.
Pin a 2cm hem each side.
Sew the hems. You can use running stitch or backstitch or whip stitch if you don’t want the stitches to show. Make sure you leave a good sized channel to thread the elastic through.
Cut c.23cm of elastic and thread it through the channel. Tie a knot. Repeat for the other side and voila you have a facemask!
