Okey, here's the promised tut to my hihatin ^^
it's stupidly simple really, though I don't know if you'll get my instructions ^^
okey, start off with two pieces of fabric like this. (okey, my lines aren't really stright, but they're supposed to be. All but the side ones of course, seeing as the top is 80 cm and the bottom only 50 =)
My fabric is two-couloured, light grey on what I used as the inside, and dark on the outside, incase you wonder why it keep changing colours =)
sew them both together on the 80 cm sides. (of course you might realise now you could've started out with a diamond-shaped size like this from the begging and you're very right. I just happened to have a square pieces of fabric, and not a long one.
You'll have to excuse my cat, she's everywhere all the time.
fold it in half along the long side sides and sew the sleeves together from the edge and about 55 cm in towards the middle on each side.
Cut a hole on one of the sides like this (this will be the front)
Hem the edges on the front and back. Since I had this two-coloured fabric I choose to hem the inside out, rather than folding the inside in like usually, to get the light grey detail all around.
Cut two squares the size 25x25 cm and sew them together like a tube. Then fold the ends of the tube towards the middle, like on the picture.
Fold the ends once more towards the middle to create the wrist-parts.
Tuck the sleeves of the hihatin inside this wrist-circle-thingies and sew them on. (this might be a bit tricky on the machine, depending on the thickness of the fabric and stuff, so you might have to do this by hand. On my white one I managed on the machine, but not on this one.
Now, sew some kind of closing-thing in the front of your liking. I just made little loops and pulled a cord through it.
And now.. you're done =) doesn't it feel way to easy?
Mine is quite big cause that's the way I like them, so you could make it smaller if you wish.
and here's the final result =)
and if you ever make some yourself, I'd love to see them! post post post ^^
