Here’s a complete list of the patterns for the Face Mask with a Filter Pocket and Nose Adjustment downloadable in JPG.
All the patterns are drawn to fit the scale of DIN A4 sheet. If you’re US-based or have a paper scale similar to the US, the recommendation is to print at 120% although I find that it works a bit differently for everyone, someone is OK with the European scale, most use 120 and one reader said 140%.
The seam allowance of 0,5 cm is included, however, the mask is pretty large and you can make the seam allowance up to 1 cm.

Would be nice if the pattern sides had the lengths & widths marked in inches or centimeters. It does show an inch square & a cm square but what does that have to do with the pattern size????
The squares allow you to make sure the pattern is being printed the correct size. For example, the 1″ square should measure 1″ on a side on the printed page. If not, adjust the printed size in the print options of your printer software. That may be found under “Page Setup”.
If you cannot get the printer software to adjust the printed size, you can draw a small grid of squares over the printed pattern. Draw a larger properly scaled up grid and copy the pattern into the larger grid freehand.
The 1” square is a check to see if your printer printed the pattern to scale. I had to increase my print size to 140 for the square to equal 1”. It depends on your printer. Good luck!
Thank you so very much for sharing this pattern! What I like about it most is that it creates a fitted mask (rather than a rectangular pleated one), yet there are NO curves in the pattern! Much more user-friendly to sewing newbies, and I’m teaching my daughter how to sew.
Thank you also for adding the 1″ square scale so I know the size the pattern should print out. To add to the above comments, I saved the file as .PDF and printed out at 130% on a Brother laser printer. At that scale, the 1″ square on the mask pattern aligned perfectly with a precise Omnigrid quilters’ ruler.
Thank you so much Sally! I’m glad I could help and your comment is also very helpful regarding the printing. I’ll be adding new mask tutorials tomorrow.
