Cut out two pieces from the patterned cotton and two pieces from the plain cotton using the pattern template.
Machine sew along the front curve of the patterned cotton attaching the two pieces together, seam allowance 1/2 cm. Repeat on the plain cotton. Trim excess fabric on the seam allowance.
Place the patterned and plain sides of the face mask right sides together. Machine sew around the circumference, leaving a 4 cm space un-sewn on the left hand side of the mask. Trim away excess material.
Turn the face mask right side out.
Press the face mask with a warm iron.
Fold over a 3/4 cm of material on both sides of the mask and machine sew in place. Cut the elastic in half and pop through the fold. Hand sew the ends of the elastic together and move the sewn sections inside the folded material.
