Don’t you love him? (Or her?)
Minion Hooded Towel Tutorial:
- A paper backed iron on fusing
- 1 bath towel (either yellow or blue)
- 1 yellow hand towel (you’ll only use half)
- Small amounts of white and black fabric
- White, black, gray and yellow thread
Cut your hand towel in half horizontally. Then fold under about 3 inches and sew that in place:
Now flip that towel over and we are going to create the face on the back.
Cut out your pieces from the pattern for the face. Then, cut the same pieces from your fusing.
Now, heat up your iron (it doesn’t have to be too hot). Iron the fusing to the backs of your face pieces.
To do this, take your piece of fabric and your piece of matching fusing:
and place the fusing on the back of your fabric with the textured side down. Then iron the smooth side of the fusing for just a few seconds:
now it should have adhered to the back of the fabric:
And iron them in place. This is just to hold them in place. We are going to applique them, but the fusing makes this work so much better. Now when you applique everything will stay where you want it when you sew and your end result will be so much better.
Once everything is sewn where you want it, sew a satin stitch along the outer edges of each piece in coordinating thread:
On this minion towel though we are going to do gray thread around the eye to look like the minion’s goggle.
Once all of those pieces are appliqued in place you will want to sew a satin stitch for the mouth: (I usually go over this a couple of times)
And maybe some hair strands too: (draw these on the towel first if you need help with where to sew)
Now, to finish this Minion hooded towel off, see the basic hooded towel post on my blog for the remaining instructions.
And you’ve got a little Minion. Really, you can go crazy with this and do it with any combination for the face-one eye or two, smiling, frowning, goofy, whatever. Every little Minion is different.
