How to: sewing & embroidery tips

Facemasks will be part of our lives for the time being. So we might as well embrace it. Give it your own spin and make something beautiful out of them. I'm happy to help you!

My facemask embroidery designs are based on the CraftPassion sewing pattern. Download your free copy of the pattern and sewing instructions from their website.

Tips for embroidering and sewing your facemask:

  • Use the advised thread colors. We provide color charts with all embroidery designs, you can find them on our website.
  • The first embroidery area is the border of the entire pattern piece without seam allowance. Use a color matching to your fabric for this.
  • After embroidering, iron on some interfacing on the backside of your pattern piece. This way all threads are immediately covered and you add some fixation to your embroidery.
  • Put some pins on the center front seam (on the edge of your embroidery). Do this for both pieces at exactly the same places and make sure the pointy tips are on the embroidered sides. Lay both pieces on top of each other, embroidered sides on the inside, and stick the pins from each side in exactly the same spot on the other side. You will have pins sticking out on both sides. When everything is aligned perfectly secure them, preferably with sewing clips.
  • Baste the center front seam in the seam allowance, check if both sides are aligned correctly.
  • Sew the center front seam exactly on the edge of your embroidery, turn and check if there are no blank spaces visible in the seam. If there are, sew theses parts a little closer to the embroidery.
  • Finish your facemask as described in the sewing instructions by CraftPassion.
