DIY sewing tutorial on how to make a face mask using your Cricut Maker to cut out your fabric.
With everything going on in the world I wanted to share how I made DIY face masks for myself and my family. I used my Cricut Maker to cut out fabric for the face masks. This made the process much simpler and efficient when making a large amount.
Once I made the first mask I was able to set up an assembly line and create an efficient process for making masks. Check out the video below or Cricut’s blog for the full tutorial.
