How To Make a Soap Saver Shower Mitt

  1. 1. How to: <ul><li>“ scrubber” soap saver shower mitt </li></ul><ul><li>kootoyoo…click & stitch </li></ul>
  2. 2. Step 1: <ul><li>Print & trace the “scrubber” template which can be found here… </li></ul><ul><li>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… </li></ul>
  3. 3. Step 2: <ul><li>Stitch your design. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Step 3: <ul><li>Cut around the mitten shape – add a seam allowance of approx ¼ inch or .5cm. </li></ul><ul><li>Set aside. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Step 4: <ul><li>Using a piece of fabric approximately A4 or letter sized… </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Step 5: <ul><li>Complete the buttonhole. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Step 6: <ul><li>Place your completed embroidered mitten on your work surface as pictured . </li></ul>
  8. 8. Step 7: <ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>The buttonhole should be sitting about 2 inches below the top of the mitten & the other piece of fabric. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Step 7: <ul><li>Pin into position. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Step 8: <ul><li>Flip over your sandwich so that the wrong side of the “scrubber” is facing you. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Step 9: <ul><li>Cut around the mitten shape. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Step 9: <ul><li>Overcast stitch the top of each of the unfinished mitten tops. Obviously your buttonholed piece is already hemmed so leave that one </li></ul>
  13. 13. Step 10: <ul><li>Insert your twisted cord between the right sides of the mitten & pin into position. </li></ul><ul><li>Then machine around the mitten shape using your ¼ inch or .5cm seam allowance. </li></ul>
  14. 14. Step 11: <ul><li>Trim your seams & clip the curves if you like. </li></ul>
  15. 15. Step 12: <ul><li>Fold over the overcast mitten top as pictured. This is to create the casing for the elastic. </li></ul>
  16. 16. Step 13: <ul><li>Machine around the casing. I left a casing about ¾ of an inch or 1.5cm. </li></ul><ul><li>Make sure you leave an opening to feed your elastic through. </li></ul>
  17. 17. Step 14: <ul><li>Turn your mitten in the right way. </li></ul>
  18. 18. Step 16: <ul><li>Your mitten should be looking something like this. </li></ul>
  19. 19. Step 17: <ul><li>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. </li></ul>
  20. 20. Step 18: <ul><li>Using a safety pin feed your elastic through the casing & then machine the two ends together. </li></ul>
  21. 21. Step 19: <ul><li>Stitch your button onto the wrong side of the embroidered piece of your mitten. </li></ul><ul><li>This will conceal all the raw edges & stitching inside the soap pocket. </li></ul>
  22. 22. Step 20: <ul><li>Fill the pocket with soap ends/scraps. </li></ul>
  23. 23. Finished <ul><li>Hang in the shower for everyday use. </li></ul>©kootoyoo 2010 http://
