Hi!! So FINALLY i finnished this tutorial!
Here it iiiis!
Okay so I decided I wont make a tut on how to make the hoodie itself (since I noticed I suck badly at
tutorial making) but don't worry, it's a basic hoodie! I took one of my fav Puma hoodies and drafted a
pattern. It's simple.
As for the horns and hood lining, here's the tuts.
You will need : big enough scraps of your hoodie
stuffing (whatever works for you is fine, i used old coat linning)
sewing machine (of course you could do it by hand, just make sure you sew it strongly)
Needle and thread (to sew the finnished horns on hood)
material for the linning
First things first: the horns. Why not the lining? Keep on reading and you'll see!
Draw a pattern if you're not confortable with cutting it out raw from the material, but this step is optional.
Step two (if you made the pattern) use it! Pin the pattern to your material and cut!
Step three: do as my drawings say.
Step four: Flip your horns on the right side. Take your stuffing and, yes, you guessed it, stuff the horns!
Step five: the most frustrating, hard step in this hole project : sewing the horns on the hood..*cringe*
. Okay but this is the most importent thing so here we go, take a deep breath! Oh but wait, if you are good
at sewing by hand, this is going to be like cake for you, eh, lol!
the tricky part is to sew it so the tread wont show. The thing is you have to fold the material at the end so
when you sew, the seam wont show because it will be underneath. Yes, this is very hard to explain. It's
like when you make a stuffed animal, you have to leave a gap to stuff it, right? Well when you close the seam,
it's exactly the same thing you have to do to sew on the horns! Ouf, that was hard to explain!
So far so good? I hope so! Now on to the hood lining!
Now, the reason for the linning was mostly because after I finnished sewing the horns, I could see the hem
in the inside of the hood where the linning is supposed to be. If that wouldn't of happened, I would have left
it "linningless" because usually we sew linning before we sew the hood on the hoodie. But anyways, it's
doable the other way around.
So first of all, take the same mesurements you used to make the hood by itself (i can't tell you exactly
because it might vary from one hoodie to the next). Basically what you do is sew a second hood but with
the linning material you chose. This is slightly harder to sew on when you've already sewn the hood on the
hoodie! So is you haven't started yet, I, if I were you, would consider doing this before. But i'll explain how I
did it in case some of you made the same mistake as me!
Let's pretend my paper is your linning.
Fold the material at the end:
And then sew it on where i am pointing:
You have to sew all around (logically!!)
Okay so now, after struggulling trought the understanding of my tutorial, you should get I nice final product!!
If there are many unclear explanations, please pm me! Don't be shy!
Eek! There's full of unwanted spaces in this post! Uuhg! To lazy to fix it! anyways ...lol
Cya guys later!
