For those who want to make the superior fitting and very comfortable Valami face mask and didn’t get a chance to snag the free pattern while it lived on the Valami website, click below to download it. The pattern (version 2.0) was last updated in June 2020.

  1. Thank you for this excellent pattern. I made a LOT of these, including about six dozen in camo/khaki fabric for my local National Guard (who couldn’t get any masks early in the pandemic and were super grateful). I really appreciated a pattern that spoke my language and that was easy to reproduce in vast quantities. All my friends received these and it remains the most comfortable and tightest sealing mask they have. Thank you again for the assist. Now back to more fun sewing! -Susan

  2. Thank you for giving us this. It means the opportunity to be safe, if (God forbid) we need to return to this.

  3. Thanks for a great pattern, Ami. I customized the size on mine a bit and it was so comfortable. The ear loops on regular masks drove me nuts so this was the perfect solution.

  5. Ami and Valli,

    I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate the time and effort that you put into this project! I’ve made masks of all sizes and shapes in the past year, and yours is outstanding. I’ll be sure to save the pattern and watch the videos again!

    Thanks, Donna Schmidt

  6. Thank you so much for providing us with this pattern. I had tried a few others early in the pandemic, but once I saw your pattern, I never made any other kind! I supplied at least 6 for each member of my family, grandchildren included, my mother and several others in her care facility, friends, people who needed dressy versions for a wedding, serious business patterns for job interviews, ….. Everyone said that the fit and comfort level was much better than anything else they had tried.
    Thanks again for your generosity in distributing this excellent service.
