Face Mask Patterns

This such an awesome collection. I sewed a group of felt monsters for my friend once and they are still my favorite. I sort of wish I had kept them...

The patterns available to use are creative and have a wide range of variety. I have sewn the one hour bag and it is quick and simple. I would sew a lining in the next one I make for more durability. If you need a quick bag for everyday use, this is a bag I would suggest making.

Hi! I sell patterns online for people who like doing DIY stuffs. You donwload the pattern who many times you want at the material of your choice (most common are textiles and paperies) and then DIY your project. I would love to introduce you to my website, send me an e-mail at, because I don't want to make spans! Hope to see you soon! Claire

I'm looking for a pattern to make a large fabric case with dividers to hold essential oil bottles (30-48 bottles)
