Hyak and Huckleberry Sew Along Day 4
Welcome to day 4 of the Hyak and Huckleberry Sew Along! If you are just joining us, scroll to the bottom for how to join in and to see our schedule. Yesterday we sewed our welt pockets. Today, we are going to attach the hood, cuffs and bands.
Before we get to the the hood, band and cuffs, I want to take a step back towards yesterday’s post. There were some comments about wishing there was a video for the zipper. I don’t know why I didn’t think to do one! Soooo, better late then never, here is a video explaining how to install the invisible zipper.
Now, back to today’s work! Can we love on the button for a moment? The button detail on the hood is a great opportunity to have some fun! I picked a large chunky button that mimics the planets on my fabric.
When you attach your button, make sure to do it before you attach the hood to the body of your shirt. You want to go in between the hood lining and main fabric and hide those stitches!
For the loop, I used a strip of the same cotton lycra I used for the faux piping. I just cut a narrow strip, about 3/4″ wide and pulled so it curled in on itself and attached.
For my cuffs, I went with a fun stripe fabric. Because, why not. LOL
After you have your cuffs, band and hood attached, you have a completed hoodie!
