How to Sew Face Mask Ear Savers - Tutorial Tuesday

If you are getting annoyed by the elastic on your face mask bugging your ears, I might have a solution for you. Today's Tutorial Tuesday uses one piece of fabric and a couple buttons to help relieve the ear irritation.

Along with your regular sewing supplies, for this project you will need:
*5" x 8" piece of fabric. Do you need fabric? I've just put a whole bunch of 9”x 14” pieces of cotton fabric from my stash on eBay. Check them out here!  Lots of fat quarters (measures approx. 18" x 22") are on there, too. 
*2 buttons measuring 3/4" or larger

Just like all my mask measurements, since we all have different head and face sizes be sure to check the size and fit out before making a ton of them!

You can find the directions right here:

As usual, stay safe out there!
