How to Make a Simple Face Mask Pouch
It appears that Face masks are going to be a part of our immediate future so I thought I might as well make a pouch for mine and share it with you. I keep stuffing them in my purse where they get mangled and bungled up. So I thought this little pouch I can attach to my purse would solve the problem. It is a super simple beginner project that requires just two fat quarters of fabric to make. Anyone with beginner sewing skills can make this project in about 15 minutes or so.
I used some remnants that I had on hand for this project but fat quarters would be perfect. You can get fat quarters just about anywhere, JOANN Fabric & Craft Stores, Hobby Lobby, or Fabric.com would be perfect.
