Handmade Embroidered Face Mask for Adults | FREE FLOWER PATTERN – part 2: Lavender Embroidery

In my previous post, I have written about why do I think wearing face masks is a good thing and material list that I prepared for my face mask. this post I will write how to embroider face mask for adults. I have tried this mask on kids and it is too big for them – please, make them smaller because kids need proper protection in these times. I will show my process of creating my embroidery face mask for adults in a few steps.

Step 1: Print and transfer the pattern

You can print the free pattern and cut it out (FREE pattern for printing is available at the bottom of the post). I draw the outline of masks on my chosen material. I have cut out 2 pieces of fabric. If your fabric has inside and outside face, please, be careful, and make sure that you cut it out correctly. You will transfer the pattern to the right side of the fabric because this will be visible side.

I took the first fabric, put it right face up, made small punction marks on the paper, after that, I use a  white roller pen that is visible on my white material and made marks on cloth. It took the template off and connected the dots.

Step 2: Attach face mask material to the hoop with organza

I have chosen my threads, hoop and attache organza inside the hoop. be careful – organza must be inserted very firmly, when I tap on organza inside my hoop it feels almost like a little drum. I used pins to secure my face mask to organza. Another possibility is to sew the cloth directly to organza.

Step 3: Embroider the Lavender pattern

For stems, I used split stitch in green colour. HERE is a good split stitch tutorial.

I embroidered Lavender flower using French knots and in 2 shades of violet colours (check my material list HERE). HERE you can find a very useful french knot tutorial.

Repeat this process on the second part of the face mask. I have embroidered my Lavender with two colours and tried to do similar on my second half. Both sides are unique and I really like how they turned out.

Step 4: Secure embroidery and cut it out

Every embroidery that will be washed several times needs to be protected. I secure embroidery on the backside because this part will be inside our mask and it will not be visible. I used PVA glue and a brush to apply it on the backside of my embroidery.

NOTE: test your PVA glue, before you use it for securing embroidery. It is very important that it is transparent after it dries.

Conclusion – our embroidery is finished

I hope you have enjoyed our first Lavender embroidery together. If you have any questions, please, let me know in the comments and I will reply as soon as I can. I will soon post part 3, where I will show you sewing of face masks for adults.

If you will try it yourself, please, let me know in the comments how do you like your end result (FREE pattern for printing is available at the bottom of post). You can also leave in comments if you wish that I share another pattern or show how to embroider another flower.

Stay healthy,

  1. Hello Vansa, it’s really a nice site you have here and I have to admit I’m glad to be learning about the making process of embodiment. The idea of me getting to learn about it is the fact that I can make it own business’s out of it and in my own design as I’ve really loved making my own craft always. Thanks for sharing
