By request, my Dollar Store Video Face Mask! This is our favorite 3D Mask, and with the added mods of an all-in-one elastic casing & optional nose bridge, they are our favorite style to sew and wear.
ONE pattern piece, NO center seam, easy to make, and easy to fit ALL noses!
I prefer a wire, but Rob rocks his without one, and it’s still a good seal. I like to add a folded paper towel right inside the mask if I’m going grocery shopping–it’s an easy, tossable filter, that keeps the mask wearable for lighter outdoor exercise.
(Also, I’m not a scientist. I’m a Sewist.)

In the video, I say the long measurement is 4 1/2 inches….while marking it with my ruler at 4 1/4 inches. This is because numbers in almost any form get drunk in my head. Either measurement will be fine–that just gives you a little more real estate from ear to ear. Mahalo to Laura Whittaker for catching that!
