DIY Instructions | Hybrid Mask Frame for Sewing or Stapling

Hybrid cloth frame, brace or fitter for respirators such as FFP2, FFP3, N95, KN95, medical, surgical or procedure masks, with reverse nose pleat for glasses wearers, channels with ear loops and head ties for a a gapless, fogfree and slipfree fit by Iris Luckhaus, to no-sew make or staple yourself with instructions, pattern and template

After the Hybrid Pleated Mask, Hybrid Custom Masks and the Hybrid Boxy Mask, I created a Hybrid Mask Frame – as an alternative for all those who cannot breathe well with Double Masks, yet don’t find a gaplessly fitting, slip-free respirator or surgical mask. Due to a reverse pleat, this Mask Frame fits perfectly – even without nose wire!

DIY Tutorial | Hybrid Boxy Mask Pictorial

Optimized, best, gapless, fog free and stay in place Luckhaus Hybrid Boxy Space Mask like 3D, Origami, Japanese or Octagon, cloth mask, face mask or face covering to sew or make with instructions, cutting pattern and templates, gapless and no fog for glasses wearers, non-slip and breathable thanks to a reverse fold or nose pleat, with nose piece or nose wire, pleats, filter opening and side channels or casings for ear loops or head ties by Iris Luckhaus

In addition to the illustrated instructions for sewing my brand new, not only gaplessly and slip-free fitting, but also very spacious Hybrid Boxy Mask, I have now created a highly detailed step-by-step picture tutorial for beginners!

DIY Instructions | Sewing a Hybrid Boxy Mask

Optimized, best, gapless, fog free and stay in place Luckhaus Hybrid Boxy Space Mask like 3D, Origami, Japanese or Octagon, cloth mask, face mask or face covering to sew or make with instructions, cutting pattern and templates, gapless and no fog for glasses wearers, non-slip and breathable thanks to a reverse fold or nose pleat, with nose piece or nose wire, pleats, filter opening and side channels or casings for ear loops or head ties by Iris Luckhaus

Now that I’ve gone through all the possibilities to customize my original Hybrid Mask for a wide range of face shapes, needs and preferences, I finally created a new cloth mask pattern with an open chin dart (or twisted pleat). Similar to 3D, Boxy, Origami, Japanese or Octagon shapes, which form a square box, the Hybrid Boxy Mask forms a triangular box which does not touch the mouth or nosetip and offers plenty of space for breathing, speaking or singing.

Closing soon | Goodbye, Reusable Mask Co Australia!

Due to personal reasons, my sewing partner Reusable Mask Co Australia is closing their business on October 31st, so if you’d like to own one (or more) of their beautiful masks (recommended by Vogue!), you better order right away! I’m so thankful to Sarah for this amazing collaboration half around the globe, I still adore her masks and truly enjoyed seeing all her adventures and successes in mask making, and I wholeheartedly wish her all the best for the future!

When the abundance became confusing, I’ve turned them into another identification chart, and now the infographics is available at Redbubble and Søciety6, printed on posters, art prints, notebooks, postcards and mugs as pictured below, as well as bags, shirts, pillows, scarves, blankets, covers, stickers and plenty of other products!

DIY Tutorial | Filter Frames for Cloth Masks

Tutorial for the Luckhaus Hybrid Pleated Mask with Filter Frames

Some maskers insert disposable filter materials (e.g. Filti) between the inner and outer layers of reusable cloth masks. For this reason, my Hybrid Mask has a filter opening! This offers the advantage of combining decent fit (through mask pattern) and filter efficiency (through disposable filters), but the disadvantage that filters are often complicated to insert, rarely cover the whole surface and easily slip. For me and my family, double masking, i.e. wearing FFP2 / KN95, surgical or self-stapled, same-pattern filter masks underneath, seems like a better option. Lately though, a lovely mask maker mentioned how complicated double masking is for kids, and I finally had an idea: Filter frames!

Iris Luckhaus Hybrid Mask by Reusable Mask Co Australia

My amazing sewing partner Reusable Masks Co Australia shot a lovely video with beautiful Carmen on how to dress up the Hybrid Cloth Mask with head ties, and another one on how to make ear loops! I could watch them all day long, and I thought they might be useful for my readers too. Great thanks to Sarah for letting me show them!

DIY Instructions | Customized Hybrid Face Masks

Since I first published my pattern for sewing the Hybrid Cloth Mask, which fits gapless (even without nosepiece!) and reliably stays in place, I’ve been asked about adjustments for special shapes and needs. In this post, I introduce a selection of these customized Hybrid patterns, and every now and then (last March 8th, 2021), I add new ones!

Tips & Tricks | Mask Tying Techniques Infographic

Infographics about mask tying techniques, showing by the example of the hybrid cloth or fabric mask or face covering pattern several ways to fasten a community mask, cloth mask or fabric face mask with ear straps, elastics or head ties and knots, pony beards or cord stoppers and bun or ponytail, by Iris Luckhaus

If you take a closer look, there are so many ways to attach a face mask to your ears or head! After looking into masks in great detail over the past couple of weeks and having all these little sketches for mask tying techniques on my desk, I finally drew an infographic that shows all the different ways to tie a cloth mask with ear bands or head ties.

DIY Tutorial | Hybrid Cloth Mask Pictorial

Optimized, gapless, fog free and stay in place hybrid mask, makeshift mask, cloth mask, face mask or face covering for glasses, DIY self-sewing with instructions, pattern and template on fabric with nose wire or nose piece, filter opening and drawstring channel for ears loops and head ties by Iris Luckhaus

Since I first published pattern and instructions for my Hybrid Cloth Mask, which fits gapless yet roomy and reliably stays in place, I’ve been asked about making a detail tutorial for beginners and visual learners, but as a video needs at least 2-3 quiet days and a picture tutorial was possible to just make inbetween, I decided to go with that for now!

DIY Instructions | Sewing a Hybrid Cloth Mask

Optimized hybrid cloth mask, fabric mask, mouth-nose mask, face mask or face covering, gapless and fog-free for glasses, to sew DIY with instructions, pattern and template with nose piece or nose wire, filter opening and drawstring channel for ear loops or head ties by Iris Luckhaus

For my own production, I optimized the pattern and manufacture of the cloth mask, to make it fit gapless and fog-free around nose, cheeks and chin and reliably stay in place, so it doesn’t slide up the eyes or down the nose. Individual parts such as wire, filter and ties are very easy to replace, plus the mask is quick and simple to sew, wash and iron.

Anthology | Lily Lux Coloring Sheet at Malbogen

Ausmalbarer Malbogen mit Lily Lux an einem stürmischen Herbsttag beim Flug mit einem Lenkdrachen

A couple of years ago, I created a colouring sheet for the wonderful Malbogen Blog, right after a storm almost stole my scarf and when Lily Lux was longing for new adventures The special thing about it is that it can not only be used for colouring in, but due to some open space, you can even draw your own ideas! Maybe coloring in, painting on, and making up your own little trip with the wind might help you feel a little less locked up at home. Have a good flight!

DIY Instructions | Hybrid Mask Frame for Sewing or Stapling

Hybrid cloth frame, brace or fitter for respirators such as FFP2, FFP3, N95, KN95, medical, surgical or procedure masks, with reverse nose pleat for glasses wearers, channels with ear loops and head ties for a a gapless, fogfree and slipfree fit by Iris Luckhaus, to no-sew make or staple yourself with instructions, pattern and template

After the Hybrid Pleated Mask, Hybrid Custom Masks and the Hybrid Boxy Mask, I created a Hybrid Mask Frame – as an alternative for all those who cannot breathe well with Double Masks, yet don’t find a gaplessly fitting, slip-free respirator or surgical mask. Due to a reverse pleat, this Mask Frame fits perfectly – even without nose wire!

In addition to the illustrated instructions for sewing my brand new, not only gaplessly and slip-free fitting, but also very spacious Hybrid Boxy Mask, I have now created a highly detailed step-by-step picture tutorial for beginners!

DIY Instructions | Sewing a Hybrid Boxy Mask

Optimized, best, gapless, fog free and stay in place Luckhaus Hybrid Boxy Space Mask like 3D, Origami, Japanese or Octagon, cloth mask, face mask or face covering to sew or make with instructions, cutting pattern and templates, gapless and no fog for glasses wearers, non-slip and breathable thanks to a reverse fold or nose pleat, with nose piece or nose wire, pleats, filter opening and side channels or casings for ear loops or head ties by Iris Luckhaus

Now that I’ve gone through all the possibilities to customize my original Hybrid Mask for a wide range of face shapes, needs and preferences, I finally created a new cloth mask pattern with an open chin dart (or twisted pleat). Similar to 3D, Boxy, Origami, Japanese or Octagon shapes, which form a square box, the Hybrid Boxy Mask forms a triangular box which does not touch the mouth or nosetip and offers plenty of space for breathing, speaking or singing.

DIY Tutorial | Filter Frames for Cloth Masks

Tutorial for the Luckhaus Hybrid Pleated Mask with Filter Frames

Some maskers insert disposable filter materials (e.g. Filti) between the inner and outer layers of reusable cloth masks. For this reason, my Hybrid Mask has a filter opening! This offers the advantage of combining decent fit (through mask pattern) and filter efficiency (through disposable filters), but the disadvantage that filters are often complicated to insert, rarely cover the whole surface and easily slip. For me and my family, double masking, i.e. wearing FFP2 / KN95, surgical or self-stapled, same-pattern filter masks underneath, seems like a better option. Lately though, a lovely mask maker mentioned how complicated double masking is for kids, and I finally had an idea: Filter frames!

My amazing sewing partner Reusable Masks Co Australia shot a lovely video with beautiful Carmen on how to dress up the Hybrid Cloth Mask with head ties, and another one on how to make ear loops! I could watch them all day long, and I thought they might be useful for my readers too. Great thanks to Sarah for letting me show them!

DIY Instructions | Customized Hybrid Face Masks

ptimierte Hybrid-Maske, Behelfsmaske, Alltagsmaske, Stoffmaske, Mund-Nase-Maske oder Mund-Nase-Bedeckung zum selber Nähen nach Anleitung, Schnittmuster und Schablone, passt lückenlos und rutscht nicht dank Rückwärtsfalte für Brillenträger, Nasenbügel, Filteröffnung und Tunnelzug für Ohrgummis oder Kopfbändel von Iris Luckhaus

Since I first published my pattern for sewing the Hybrid Cloth Mask, which fits gapless (even without nosepiece!) and reliably stays in place, I’ve been asked about adjustments for special shapes and needs. In this post, I introduce a selection of these customized Hybrid patterns, and every now and then (last March 8th, 2021), I add new ones!

Tips & Tricks | Mask Tying Techniques Infographic

Infographics about mask tying techniques, showing by the example of the hybrid cloth or fabric mask or face covering pattern several ways to fasten a community mask, cloth mask or fabric face mask with ear straps, elastics or head ties and knots, pony beards or cord stoppers and bun or ponytail, by Iris Luckhaus

If you take a closer look, there are so many ways to attach a face mask to your ears or head! After looking into masks in great detail over the past couple of weeks and having all these little sketches for mask tying techniques on my desk, I finally drew an infographic that shows all the different ways to tie a cloth mask with ear bands or head ties.

DIY Tutorial | Hybrid Cloth Mask Pictorial

Optimized, gapless, fog free and stay in place hybrid mask, makeshift mask, cloth mask, face mask or face covering for glasses, DIY self-sewing with instructions, pattern and template on fabric with nose wire or nose piece, filter opening and drawstring channel for ears loops and head ties by Iris Luckhaus

Since I first published pattern and instructions for my Hybrid Cloth Mask, which fits gapless yet roomy and reliably stays in place, I’ve been asked about making a detail tutorial for beginners and visual learners, but as a video needs at least 2-3 quiet days and a picture tutorial was possible to just make inbetween, I decided to go with that for now!

DIY Instructions | Sewing a Hybrid Cloth Mask

Optimized hybrid cloth mask, fabric mask, mouth-nose mask, face mask or face covering, gapless and fog-free for glasses, to sew DIY with instructions, pattern and template with nose piece or nose wire, filter opening and drawstring channel for ear loops or head ties by Iris Luckhaus

For my own production, I optimized the pattern and manufacture of the cloth mask, to make it fit gapless and fog-free around nose, cheeks and chin and reliably stay in place, so it doesn’t slide up the eyes or down the nose. Individual parts such as wire, filter and ties are very easy to replace, plus the mask is quick and simple to sew, wash and iron.

Anthology | Lily Lux Coloring Sheet at Malbogen

Ausmalbarer Malbogen mit Lily Lux an einem stürmischen Herbsttag beim Flug mit einem Lenkdrachen

A couple of years ago, I created a colouring sheet for the wonderful Malbogen Blog, right after a storm almost stole my scarf and when Lily Lux was longing for new adventures The special thing about it is that it can not only be used for colouring in, but due to some open space, you can even draw your own ideas! Maybe coloring in, painting on, and making up your own little trip with the wind might help you feel a little less locked up at home. Have a good flight!

I just finished illustrating the outside of a collapsible cardboard house (ca. 20 x 20 cm) for the Wuppertaler Stadsparkasse. This little house will be used to describe renovations and refurbishings of an old house, and why those make sense. It has an old, unrefurbished side and another that is all new and shiny, fully refurbished, and both contain typical details.

If you’re painting the sheet, you’re welcome to upload and leave a comment!
