Please read below: Many patterns for homemade DIY face masks call for some type of wire to use on the nose area so you can gently fold it to fit the bridge of your nose and help reduce air gaps. Some wires, like thin twist ties or pipe cleaners, may not hold in place very well. A lot of DIYers have turned to coffee ties because they have double wires and are plastic.
Many sewers are using THIS coffee bag tin tie.
We are sewing them onto our masks with our sewing machine, as shown in one of the example photos. It can also be sewn between the two pieces of your fabric to hide it.
We have not hand sewn these, but we received a tip from a customer that she prefers a denim needle.
Our family has chosen a free pattern from Suay LA (google it) which uses shop towels as the base material. The shape is comfortable and has a chin gusset for better fit. You can use her free pattern or choose any pattern available that appeals to you. A pattern is NOT included with this order of coffee ties.
