Turn bandana over.

Add elastics at about 1/3 of the way in on each side.

Where you place your elastics is flexible depending on the size of your bandana and the size of the head this mask will be used for.

Make folds at the elastics, folding the fabric in towards the center.

This folded area will be the side of the mask touching your face.

The other side is the exposed side – as seen in the next photo.

The bonus of the design of the bandana face mask is that there is also room for expansion.

The way the folds are done, the front of the mask can be expanded to fit a larger face.
