The best mask

Not only is this pattern download free, it is an absolute delight to make. Sensible clear instructions that result in a very neatly finished super quick make.

Folded mask patter

The mask was easy to make, and a really good fit for me. It’s the only mask pattern I will make from now on. Thanks for the great pattern.

Best pattern out there!! (Panel Version)

I've tried 3 face mask patterns prior to this one and this pattern by far has the best fit for my small face! The instructions in the video were really clear and I love the variety of fastening options. 😃
I'll definitely make more in the near future!

Impressed so far

Download worked fine and all looks good. I have watched the video and imressed with so much information. Not used yet as already have enough mask for now but wanted to have a pattern for when I am ready.

Many thanks for efficient service and follow up.

Leanne Silver (Swanson, NZ)
Best pattern

I’ve tried a few different patterns but have had best results with the shaped one from Twig and Tale. Easy to insert a nose piece and fits really well. The clarity of the instruction is amazing

Wonderful fit

I've been making masks with this pattern since last year and the fit is great. And the tutorial makes it super simple for everyone to make them. They have the same detailed text with pics as all T&T patterns. Thank you for sharing this one for free

Diane McPhail (Epping, AU)
excellent patterns and instructions with tips and suggestions

These are excellent patterns but the difference between twig and tale and other sites is the clear and helpful instructions. I especially liked the suggestions for ties and elastics and careful note of how to insert a nose wire.

Sheryl McFarlane (Hamilton, NZ)
Love love love the shaped mask pattern

I’ve made the shaped mask 7 times now, fiddling around with the pattern to get a good fit to wear with glasses, & came back to the original pattern with an inserted nose wire in the top seam. I steal the wire out of the medical disposable ones I sometimes have to wear. And I use the ear loops from them as well. The black one is fine wool & so soft! Masks to look at in the street are now a ’thing’

Hilary Thomas (Atlanta, US)
The perfect mask pattern!

The pattern is easy to follow and makes a great comfortable mask! I've tried other patterns but this one is by far my favorite!

Sue (Palmerston North, NZ)

Fantastic pattern which produces a comfortable mask. I'm a novice sewer & have been able to produce lots of masks for family. I would highly recommend this pattern to everyone.
