Pleating Jig For Face Masks And Sewing, Jig/Pleat. With Four Rows For Extra Flexibility In The Mask, Thank You To All Mask Makers!
The trickiest part in sewing face mask patterns such as the Deaconess and Pocket Mask is the pleats. This tool folds the pleats for you. Place the part with the measure lines on a sewing table, with the measuring lines furthest from you. Lay down your fabric and line the top edge with one of the lines. You'll need to experiment to discover which line works best for your pattern.
Place the other jig on top. Align the fins. Use your fingers to hold the bottom jig on the top corners and use your thumbs to push the top jig in, creating folds in the fabric. If the folds are too high or too low, try a different measuring line.
At this point, I use my hands to straighten the folds a little. Then I scoot both layers of the jig to one side of the fabric while I iron the other side. Then I repeat on the other side. You can either keep the fabric in the jig while you sew it, remove the jig and pin/clip the folds, or remove the jig, press the fabric with the iron, and sew without pins or clips. I usually do the third option
