Step 1: Print Pattern above and cut out.
Step 2: Pin pattern to fabric and cut out the fabric pieces (4 pieces per mask).
Step 3: Pin two pieces right side together and sew along curve about 1/8 seam allowance. Repeat with another set.
Step 4: Unfold so that the sewn curve is in the middle. Pin two sets right side together and sew along the long sides allow about 1/8 seam allowance.
Step 5: Turn inside out. Tuck short sides in at about 5/8 seam allowance and iron.
Step 6: Cut about 11 inches of elastic.
Step 7: Place elastic in the tucked seam about 5/8 inches deep. Sew a 3/8 seam allowance and then again at 1/8 seam allowance.
Step 8: Trim threads
