16 Face Coverings to Sew

We all need to protect ourselves in these times, but masks can be difficult to come by as the demand for them rises. If you need to get out of the house, but don't have access to a mask this collection has 16 Face Coverings to Sew which you can use as easy alternatives to keep you and your family safe. 

While these are not approved PPE, any face covering is better than no face covering in these times as they can protect both you and others. This collection contains 16 different alternative face coverings you can try out depending on your access to materials and needs.

Whether a scarf, headband, or bandana works best for you, you can convert all of these tutorials easily with just a little creativity into being the perfect face covering. All of these face coverings double as accessories so you can wear them beyond your need for a face covering as well!

Scarf Face Covering Ideas

Scarves are one of the best alternative options for a face mask. These different DIY scarves are super easy to make and can be used as a fashion statement or secured over your face for a quick and easy face covering. As you're using these scarves to keep yourself safe thicker fabric is recommended and can be easily put in all these designs to create an even stronger barrier. While not as effective as a real mask these will definitely do the trick!

Headband Face Covering Ideas

Another great alternative face covering option is to use one of these headband tutorials and slightly alter it. These headbands include athletic, fashionable, and winter styles which can all be converted into a face covering if you need one. They are incredibly simple to make and can be easily adjustable to work as a face mask. All you need to do is to use more fabric (and slightly thicker fabric) when creating the headband and it now has a double function as a functional headband and face covering. 

Miscellaneous Face Covering Ideas

These four styles range from kids bandanas to dog bandanas to bibs, and to buffs. While slightly unconventional and less usable in everyday life than the previous options all of these projects all work great for face coverings. Each one offers different wearability and depending on your access to materials you can choose which one works best for you. Simply adjust the size of the projects to fit your face (or whomever you are sewing for) and you'll have a brand new face covering in only a few steps.
