No middle seam

It sure would be nice if the front of the mask was a single piece of fabric without a middle seam. This would allow for much larger patterns and customized placement of design elements.

Sounds like a fun project. Better get one of my cats involved.

I cut out the two inside pieces and sewed them and the nose bendy into a single piece. I then pinned the outside fabric to the piece and cut around the edges.

The new “single front” pattern is quite a bit larger to accommodate for the deflection in front of the mouth.

NOTE: I didn’t get it quite right but I feel this is a good road to travel down. I sewed the front piece a little too close the the back which them acted to push the entire mask against my mouth. It’s possible that the pattern I chose is too small. I will need to experiment more.
