Easy to Sew Face Masks? 😷 Pleated, Curved, 3D Style Breakdown

Many of us have been busy sewing up face masks / coverings the past few months. I’ve tried making some of the popular styles including the basic pleated mask, pleated mask with a filter pocket, curved fitted mask, and 3D mask. In this video, I share my thoughts on each type of mask style (what I like and don’t like) and why I now prefer to sew 3D masks.

Note: I am not a medical professional and these are non-medical grade face coverings. Do your research when it comes to individual and family safety.

Homemade masks are NOT considered PPE and won’t protect you from contracting disease or illness.
