HOW TO MAKE A BAG POUCH FOR YOUR DIRTY & CLEAN MASKS 

EASY SEW WALLET DESIGN with FREE PATTERN 

Dirty reusable Masks are a problem that fabric mask wearers are dealing with so today as part of the Stay Safe series, I am introducing you to an easy wallet pouch for you to put your dirty or clean mask inside while travelling to the shops etc.

Not everyone has access to clip machines/tools or confidence to sew a buttonhole or zip, so this easy pattern is for everyone to be able to enjoy and create for your family and friends by using a slot mechanism and basic sew design.

DIY Supplies

  • Printer
  • Free PDF Printable Pattern at bottom of the post (for personal use only)

Step by Step Beginner Vinyl Easy Wallet Picture Tutorial

INSTRUCTIONS
  • Print your Free Pattern on A4 size paper, 100% scale
  • Cut out the Paper Pattern
  • Place your paper pattern on top of the plastic fabric
  • Mark around the pattern onto the plastic with a thin marker
  • Cut with sharp scissors around the edge of the pattern
  • Cut the slot line on the inside of the template with a craft knife or fold over and cut with scissors 
  • Fold vinyl over and clip the sides together with clothes pegs or small clamps. Do not pin Vinyl as you will leave holes
  • Sew a straight long length line along each side edge (I use 3.5) & do a small backstitch at the beginning and end
  • If you are hand sewing then use a sharp thin needle
  • Cut loose thread for a clean finish at each end
  • If you would like a way to attach to the outside of your bag, cut a small slot line in one of the corners of the wallet. If you have a leather hole punch, you can also use this
  • Join two keyring loops together creating one ring at the bottom and one ring at the top. Leave one chain in the centre of both rings
  • Hook the ring through the corner slit
  • Alternatively, you can use a metal snap hook or a carabiner to hook to your bag.
  • Place your mask inside 
When placing a worn mask inside, take the mask off from your ear, fold over from the inside, making sure you do not touch the outside of the mask. Slide into the case.
  • Fold over the top wallet section and hook in the slots
Wash your mask holder after every use, you can do this by wiping down with a germ remover wipe or spray. Check the brands packaging or instructions to ensure it will kill COVID 19 germs as some do not say this.

Make a few vinyl pouches at a time so you always have one available if you are moving around to different places throughout the day and need to change your fabric mask often.
TIP - Mark the front of your mask wallet with CLEAN & DIRTY, so you will always know which one is fresh to wear
I hope you love this easy sewing project design as much as I do. Please use the design for personal use only and not reproduce for profit. I work hard on my templates and offer them for Free for the craft community. If my patterns continue to get resold and profits made from them I will have to start offering my free templates as email subscription only which I do not want to do. Thanks for understanding 💗
