How do you tie a knot on the side of your shirt?
I generally like to knot my t-shirts on the side – so position your pull where you want the knot to end up. Twist the material you pulled through the circle you made with your thumb and index finger. Wrap the twisted material around your index and middle fingers. Pull through to form a knot.
How long should T-shirt ties be for masks?
For the purpose of a face mask, I recommend cutting 1.5″ and 2″ strips depending on how you’re going to use it. If you treat it like bias binding (which I will show in the tutorial below) then you want 2″. If you are going to thread it through a casing, then 1.5″ is fine.
How long are ties on face masks?
This tie should be about 36 inches long, as measured from where it is sewn into the side of the mask. approximately 16” extends from each upper and lower edge of mask.
