How To Make a Soap Saver Shower Mitt How To Make a Soap Saver Shower Mitt Presentation Transcript

  • How to:
    • “ scrubber” soap saver shower mitt
    • kootoyoo…click & stitch
  • Step 1:
    • Print & trace the “scrubber” template which can be found here… http://www.flickr.com/photos/15238151@N02/4397968734/
    • You also need to have some ready made twisted cord (or ribbon). If you’d like to make co-ordinating twisted cord you can find the “how to” here… http://www.feelingstitchy.com/2010/02/embroidery-homework-twisted-cord.html
  • Step 2:
    • Stitch your design.
  • Step 3:
    • Cut around the mitten shape – add a seam allowance of approx ¼ inch or .5cm.
    • Set aside.
  • Step 4:
    • Using a piece of fabric approximately A4 or letter sized…
    • Double hem & make a buttonhole in the centre of the hem. This is a great way to practice buttonholes as you’re not in danger of wrecking a finished project.
  • Step 5:
    • Complete the buttonhole.
  • Step 6:
    • Place your completed embroidered mitten on your work surface as pictured .
  • Step 7:
    • Place a piece of A4/letter sized fabric on top of the mitten so that you have right sides facing (make sure you line up the top of the mitten & the top of the fabric) & then your buttonholed piece of fabric on top.
    • The buttonhole should be sitting about 2 inches below the top of the mitten & the other piece of fabric.
  • Step 7:
    • Pin into position.
  • Step 8:
    • Flip over your sandwich so that the wrong side of the “scrubber” is facing you.
  • Step 9:
    • Cut around the mitten shape.
  • Step 9:
    • Overcast stitch the top of each of the unfinished mitten tops. Obviously your buttonholed piece is already hemmed so leave that one
  • Step 10:
    • Insert your twisted cord between the right sides of the mitten & pin into position.
    • Then machine around the mitten shape using your ¼ inch or .5cm seam allowance.
  • Step 11:
    • Trim your seams & clip the curves if you like.
  • Step 12:
    • Fold over the overcast mitten top as pictured. This is to create the casing for the elastic.
  • Step 13:
    • Machine around the casing. I left a casing about ¾ of an inch or 1.5cm.
    • Make sure you leave an opening to feed your elastic through.
  • Step 14:
    • Turn your mitten in the right way.
  • Step 16:
    • Your mitten should be looking something like this.
  • Step 17:
    • Cut your elastic so that it fits comfortably around your wrist. Remember to add a bit extra so that you can sew the ends together.
  • Step 18:
    • Using a safety pin feed your elastic through the casing & then machine the two ends together.
  • Step 19:
    • Stitch your button onto the wrong side of the embroidered piece of your mitten.
    • This will conceal all the raw edges & stitching inside the soap pocket.
  • Step 20:
    • Fill the pocket with soap ends/scraps.
  • Finished
    • Hang in the shower for everyday use.
