What You Will Need

  • Cricut Maker
  • fabric
  • fabric grip mat
  • brayer
  • tweezers optional


  • Start by adding the fabric to a fabric grip mat. You will want to put this face down if you are using the fabric pen for marking your pattern. You should cut your fabric to fit on the mat.

  • Press the fabric down really well. I like to use a brayer for this.

  • I chose to mark my pieces with the washable fabric pen but you can turn this option off before you cut.

  • Once the cut is done, remove the mat from your Cricut machine. With the fabric grip mat, you want to make sure not to touch the adhesive with your hands.

  • First, pull away the excess fabric.

  • Then remove your pattern pieces. I like to use tweezers for this portion so I do not touch the mat but this is optional. Now that your pattern pieces are cut, it is time to sew your Cricut face masks.
