The GO! DIY Face Mask features three shapes for the outside of the mask, the lining and strip for fabric ties. The curved design helps the mask fit securely and comfortably over the nose and mouth, and comes in three sizes, small/child, medium/women and large/men. Note that each size is a separate die and must be purchased separately. The mask is simple to sew following our free directions.
*Please note that the CDC does not consider homemade masks personal protective equipment (PPE) and will only be used by professionals as mask covers or when no other alternative is available.

How to Die Cut DIY Face Mask Shapes:
For best cutting results, position fabric on the lengthwise grain (straight of grain) as it goes under the roller.
- Outer Face Unit: Cut 6-7/8" x 7-3/8" rectangles. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut five outer face units across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 25 outer face units.
- Inner Face Unit: Cut 6-3/8" x 7-3/8" rectangles. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut five inner face units across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 25 inner face units.
- Strip: Cut 14" x 1-1/2" rectangles. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut 26 strips across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 52 strips.
- Cut so much more fabric in less time.
- Get accurate cuts every time -- No slipping rulers or mistakes
- Easiest to use -- Simply place die on cutter, then fabric and cutting mat on top
- Save fabric with Two Tone Foam -- Get more out of your fabric by placing it only over the shape you want to cut.
- Safe to use -- No blades come anywhere near your fingers
- With some fabrics, after cutting, a thread or two will remain where die blades meet. Snip threads with scissors.
- Blades on some dies are positioned at an angle. Align fabric to edge of shape, not edge of die board.
- Use good quality fabric to reduce fabric stretch.
- It's always a good idea to test cut one shape before cutting many shapes to ensure fabric orientation is correct.
