Everybody this is julie from designs by juju and i have finally gone around to to doing a hooded towel tutorial video for you and today ive just made cute put a towel for my grandson charlie. Im going to see him tomorrow and this is a little lion from one of our picot sets. And what i love about the method that i prefer that i this is the reason i wanted to do this is its a little different than some others out there is that the inside of your hood is lined.
So you dont use some methods will cut a hand towel. And happen will make two hoods. I use one whole hand towel to make a whole hood and well show you how to do it.
And so it and so both so that its all self lined that way your applique once youve sewn on your applique with your embroidery machine and have lined you dont have the back of it here to like scratch a little kids head and its all closed up and professional and then it when i had to show you how to attach it its done neatly see. If david. If you can scroll in a a little bit like in a french seam there and everything looks nice and finished and professional here.
So it just gets a nice finished look and your little kids grandkids customers kids whoever you making these for will love it im going to show you with the supplies that were going to use and then just whip up another hand towel applique and we will get going. Its really quick. Its really easy if you can sew a straight line you can do this and even if you cant sew.
A straight line you can do this i know a lot of people get scared to make new projects and get scared to to try something and dont because i get scared all the time. And i do it so so can you lets go okay so to make the hoodie towel. All youre gonna need to do is choose a bath towel and im kind of using a fancier one i got it at target because im doing another one for charlie told.
You im going to see him tomorrow so heres your bath towel. Just the standard size and then a hand towel. I got i love the room essentials ones from target.
Because theyre expensive. And they have these bright really bright like cheery colors. The only thing i really want to find is like a really bright red.
But well get there so you just need a hand towel and a bath towel and youre going to need your thread and pick out an embroidery design. And if youre looking for animal pkers or monster peakers or i have like spring stuff and easter stuff on our website. We have a whole hoodie towel category.
So lets see my desk. Cute oh youre gonna need some pins. Okay just to pin.
Some things together youll need a marker or something and a ruler. So lets im sorry this is a mess. But hashtag perfectly imperfect.
So you lets need a ruler for some things. A rotary cutter. Thats it so lets get going okay.
So we have hoped our towel. Make sure that youre hoping it so that the right side is up make sure that you dont make that mistake ask me how i know so the tags underneath. I had folded the towel in half before i hoped it and mark the centers just to make sure that i got it centered and i have on the back.
Theres a piece of no show. Mesh and then i also put a piece of tearaway over it so that i had the edge of the towel. Showing here.
So that when we line it up on the machine you can kind of guide you know move it down on your machine screen and guide. So that the pker will be kind of close to the edge here. So im going to take this pins out.
And i want to put some water soluble stabilizer. Because its always good to use that this is a film. Its like solving here and i buy it by the roll from all stitch.
Comm and it comes in these eight inch perforated sheets. So i will just lay this down over the design. And i wall carefully music pin.
It on three sides. Because i dont want it down here. Because they dont want the machine to go over a pen.
But if i know that if im doing it on each side here were good im going to use probably one of the 8×8 designs you can use five by seven four by four actually whatever you want i like i like to kind of fill. My hoop. This is a nine by nine brother allied hoop for my multi needle.
And that kind of i like that size. But thats just me so. Lets see i could even put a couple pins down here on each side to really secure this down.
Some people prefer to float their towels. You can do that i dont like floating and i dont personally recommend it but that doesnt mean. Its not right i just dont like it i kind of have my hoping technique down.
And this is what works for me. See you do what works for you so now im going to take this to the machine.
And im going to be stitching out a cute duck to be yellow and orange and i think itll look cute with this bath towel. Okay okay. So we have everything is hooped and i have just put this on my machine.
And im using my multi needle. But it doesnt matter you can use your single needle is just as good you might have your whole thing depending on your machine might be rotated because of the design. But so just make sure the orientation is correct with your towel and such if youre on a single needle machine and now were going to make sure you dont have to work on the edit screen of your embroidery machine okay so this is a baby lock machine your brother machine baby lock.
If thats what youre using might look similar. But every machine should have an edit screen and all i want to do this is centered in your hoop. And so what i want to do is im going to move this down about a half an inch or.
So and maybe just maybe to about 055. I think i did it earlier and then for mine. You can usually has like a trace function.
So. My machine is going to kind of just kind of move and show me where everythings gonna stitch. And if you see what this is gonna do just giving me an idea and im watching it from the side.
And im gonna want to move the design down a little bit more so lets keep going just a little bit more goodness. Gracious okay. Alright lets trace it again i just want to get my i want to get the design stitching out close to the bottom of the towel.
But not too close to the edge. And im gonna need to go a little more so youre gonna fuss with this until you get it just right okay. So i have moved this down in my hoop.
Just close to an inch. And that is perfect for me for where i have this hooped. Lets say you bring the camera you can see a little bit of the stabilizer here.
So thats how ive hoped this and i moved the design down about an inch and that way i know that the bottom is going to stitch out just you know about a half an inch or so above the edge of the towel and youre gonna have to depending on your machine. Youre gonna have to decide what the right setting is for you. But that is the right setting for me okay.
So our design is finished on the machine. And as you can see here. I forgot to move the design down closer to the edge of the towel after i went through that whole thing.
But im going to use it and finish this hoodie towel. Because charlie wont know the difference. But yeah you might want to just remember to move it down more i think it would look cuter.
But i still think its going to be adorable okay so im just gonna unpin. This and take everything out of the hoop and remove my stabilizers. There.
We go this salty r. That im using the water soluble. Its great because it just keeps the stitches from sinking into a pile fabric and lets pop this out.
And i had used the mesh and the tearaway. So i am going to just get this hair away off and carefully poke a little hole. There i always like to be extra careful just to get it going i cant believe i forgot to move that down actually i can because ive kind of been doing stuff like that all week since my granddaughter lucys been born and ive been like i dont know why since im not the one was in sleep.
Its her mom. But okay there we go and i had used some spray adhesive to put my stabilizer on so hold on im just going to grab some scissors. Were just going to carefully cut this away leaving about a half an inch.
All the way around this is all going to be enclosed. If you had used just tearaway thats fine because this is all going to be hidden. Were making this lined and the whole back of this design is going to be inside the lining.
So it will not be shown. So now we are all ready and were going to go on to the next step okay so now we are going to construct our hood. Youre going to want it having to your left your applique face up youre going to fold your towel in half with the applique on the inside or right sides together.
And we really want to line this up the best. We can so these edges down. Here.
I want the corners and this to be lined up and i want to smooth it out so im just going to take a couple pins down here to kind of just hold that in place on each bottom edge. And ill show you why in just a moment okay and make sure that like any bubbles are out so we want to have it as smooth as possible. Im just going to pin.
This here and then if you measure ive got a um. Im gonna use a marker. I i mean you could should use a probably a fabric marker.
Im actually im not using a fabric marker. But its all hidden anyway so it really doesnt matter.
But if you measure your towel. It should be 16 inches wide okay so what youre going to want to do is come to the top and just kind of make a mark up here at the 8 inch. Mark and then come down at the bottom and line.
It up and make a mark here at the 8 inch mark. Its not really then youre just going to want to draw mark those line those up and draw a line down the center. This is like a brush marker.
And its just gonna its just gonna help you guide your sewing. Because were going to be sewing down this center line. Okay and this is whats going to make our self lined hood just want to double check make sure that thats at the 8 inches.
And it is because that line is not easy to see see if i but i am going to put some pins that its because oh there we go that actually this works better. Its not that easy to see because its such a dark towel. But thats already so you can see that much better for this video at least you zoom in a little bit just can you see that okay.
Jake okay. My son. Jake is doing this for me.
So. I am going to just pin here kind of on each side so that the fabric does not shift. When im stitching down the center and there we go you dont need a bunch maybe like five.
So were going to go to the machine. And were gonna do a little backstitch here. And im just going to stitch down a straight line a back stitch at the end.
And lets head to the machine okay so im just going to start here. And i want to do a couple of back stitches. And youre just going to stitch down the straight line and just remove your pins as you go i didnt iron my towel and all that you might want to but for the purposes of this video.
I was just i just want to get this done to give to charlie tomorrow and then when you get to these little bumps here just go slow. Its gonna be fine you might want to adjust the presser foot setting to backstitch a little there you go so now you can take these pins out. Here.
And now you have stitched that together hold on im going to hit pin myself. There you go you stitch that down okay. So now were going to turn the towel inside out the hood.
So all youre going to do is kind of flip this through okay. And then youre going to pull this part here and just kind of poke it out and i wish that that had been moved down. But it didnt so and then you can fuss with it which were going to do in a minute to get it all just so.
But we pulled it through and as you can see its can you see this jake. Its lined on the inside the way we pulled it through so what were going to do now is im going to go back to this has got some puckers here because i wasnt that careful sorry im going to go back. And were gonna get this all lined up together and pinned neatly and stitch this together to make it have a nice finish okay so were going to want to pin the edges claw neatly together and then stitch this all closed.
So im going to start on one side here and im going to line them up. And im just going to line up the edge and just do this like every few inches. All the way around and youll see that it all lines up.
So let me do this here. Because we want to close this up and have it look all nice and professional and secure and my son actually thinks this is adorable it takes a lot to impress him so im pretty happy about good almost done okay all right so you can see this is pretty much to the edge. Were going to be doing some trimming after i have done the sewing you know explain that to you when we come back lets go to the machine and stitch.
This together okay so ive got this on the machine. And i want to make sure that ive got my edges lined up and jake can you see my fingernail is i want to try to stitch as close to this ribbed edging here as possible so you dont have to worry about this this thicker bottom part cuz. Were going to be trimming that off so ive put my machine put it underneath there and im going to lower the presser foot.
And do a couple of back stitches. And were just going to get going you see im keeping it close to those edges. And you want to kind of just make sure that nothing gets caught underneath.
Ive got my edges right up against each other so were just keeping that close to the edges. Almost there music just take it slow. Its not really difficult at all and i am no seamstress.
So if i can do it anybody can all right my dear here we go all right im gonna back stitch. There we go and im gonna just remove it from the machine and now we have stitched those edges all nice together and you have a lined hood and now were gonna go back and were gonna be trimming off some of this length and ill explain why okay so have you might have noticed in some other hoodie tell us that youve seen that the hood. Theres this hood and then it kind of hangs this length here and then attaches to the bath towel.
I personally dont care for that look but this length here is dependent i guess on the size of the child. Its going to be wearing the towel. So the one that i the sample.
I made i cut off about three inches. Because its going to be for charlie now. I put one of those with the shorter length here on my 6 4.
Husband with a big head and i mean. It worked so if it fit his head a sixth floor man you know 300 pounds then its gonna fit any kid up to ten years old you know so and i dont know i mean 12 13.
Even a teenager so but youre a preference here. How much you cut up i cut off here with a rotary cutter about about three inches or so. And just be careful and going to use a lot of pressure here on the edges.
There. And there is your hood okay. So you have a natural center.
Here. Because its stitched together okay so now were going to attach the hood to the bath towel okay so now we have the bath towel. Were going to attach the hood to it the first thing we want to do is just fold at the towel and a half and find your scent her so im going to take a pin and just mark my center.
Here now when you lay the towel down to attach the hood. You want to make sure that the tags are going to be away from you in one of the corners face down. So heres my tags underneath here okay.
And im going to lay my towel down on the floor. And the right side of the towel is up and the tags are underneath in that left corner over there were going to be making like a french seam here so what i want to do you have to edge this kind of this edge here of your towel. This rough edge.
You want to put this line. The center up with the center of your towel about a half an inch or so in okay then were going to pin the edge of the towel. All the way to your bath towel and i need to get my pins okay.
Its gonna pin it down youve laid down so remember this is the towel. Its right side up. Youve got your hood upside down with the point of the hood facing away from you you just want to pin your hood down to the towel.
Were gonna get this all enclosed and youre gonna love it because its all gonna be nice and finished just make sure everythings pinned and secured and flat now when we stitch jake make sure you get in a little closer were going to stitch about like 1 2. Inch seam allowance straight down here to the towel. So lets go the machine okay so actually instead of a half inch.
I want you to do about just use the edge of the presser foot maybe about a little bit more than a quarter of an inch. This doesnt have to be exact okay. But ill show you what were gonna do backstitch a couple stitches and were just gonna stitch this down to your doubt towel lets sound you hear is my pedal.
Im putting the pedal to the metal. So okay. What ive done is ive ive worked on my whoa whoa.
My the pressure foot. It is a little bit less pressure and that way the towel glides under it easier depending on how much of a seam allowance youve left here you may or may not trim. So im gonna do a backup of backstages.
Okay now were done okay so weve stitched the hood to the towel. And we have all this excess here. So what were going to do is.
When you flip the towel up you can in case. Those raw edges. You see this here.
Weve got your raw edges. And youve got your excess towel. And were just going to flip it up and im just going to take this straight underneath.
So im actually gonna put it to my sewing setting all right lets flip this up and what we want to do is we want to make sure to kind of pull it all nice and neat we want to kind of hold it taut and im gonna sew slowly. Im gonna take a couple of back stitches here okay i went to sew as close to that white edge as i can holding this up. And weve got the raw edges.
Here are being hidden and just do a little bit at a time and this is just making a really nice professional finish almost done i dont like sewing with my embroidery arm on i dont know why i did. But some people love it i dont but i was too lazy to take it off okay back stitch a couple and we are done so our hooded towel is finished youve got the self lined hood here so you dont have the back of the applique scratching. The childs head.
Youve got the edges are sewn nicely together here. And then youve got this all attached nicely the raw edges are all enclosed. Youve got your french seam here on the back.
And this is all just attached. And its just a very nice professional look. Im not a seamstress so im sure its not perfect.
If youre a seamstress. Then youre probably not even watching this video. So but for those of you that needed a video and wanted to know how to make it thats how you do it.
Its really simple you can see all right heaven. Im not gonna ill do a different video unfolding it. But you can see that the tags are on the inside.
So you can cut those off or whatever and the child can wrap the towel around them. And its just really cute and i love to just this ill describe tell from target. But i think charlie will love his ducky hoodie.
