DIY: Face Mask #2 Baby and Toddler

DIY Fabric Face Mask for Baby and Toddler

Based on my basic face mask tutorial, it’s still a 3-layer mask except these are sized down and “baby” features a slightly different construction! It also uses a very thin undershirt for the “filter” layer and make use of scraps from creating the adult mask! You can also create a lighter mask for baby by omitting the “filter” layer entirely.

Toddler and Baby Fabric Face Masks

These come in 3 sizes- Toddler Large (Wraparound), Toddler Small, and Baby (approx. 1yo). For the two smaller sizes, the middle layer is optional. Make sure to choose 100% Cotton or Baby-Safe Fabrics. Make sure Baby Mask is always worn while supervised.

UPDATE: Toddler Large fits a 4.5 year old. Toddler Small fits a 1 year old. Baby doesn’t fit anyone!
