Scoodie in The Hoodie

August 25th, 2011

Today’s the big day… my project day at camp for Lizzy’s 1001 Peeps Summer Camp! This year I’m making a scoodie (scarf + hoodie) to go along with my last year’s Dragon Slayer Satchel. This year my project is Scoodie in The Hoodie - scarf + hoodie all rolled into one, and fabric can be purchased at Sew,Mama,Sew!  Yardage will yield: one adult 12″ or one large kiddie 10″ and one small 8″ or medium 9″ kiddie sized Scoodie’s. Mix and match.
Scoodie in The Hoodie

1 yard outer fabric
1 yard liner fabric
10″ strip for prairie points

1. Cut six 4″ and six 5″ squares for prairie points. For each square, fold over (wrong sides together) diagonally, and press. Fold over diagonally again, and press. 4″ prairie points are for small and medium kiddie Scoodies, and 5″ prairie points are for adult and large kiddie Scoodies.

2. Lay out your yardage of outer fabric, fold wrong sides together selvedge to selvedge.

3. Cutting on the length, cut two 12″ units and two 8″ units. Repeat with liner fabric. *For a kiddie medium size, cut your fabrics in 9″ strips, kiddie large size cut in 10″ strips, so on and so forth, and tell two friends and they’ll tell two friends

4. Pin two 12″ units at an end (to from one long 2 yard strip). Watch your directional print, and pin rooftops at the top. Repeat with liner fabric, and 8″ units.

5. Place 3 prairie points to each end of the strip, and layer outer and liner units, right sides together with the prairie points tucked neatly inside. Pin.

6. Leave about a 3″ opening (between red and green pins in photo) for turning about an inch from the center seam, and stitch around all four sides.

Trim corners off, turn and press.

Fold unit over in half on center, outer side together. Measure the length of the your center seam, and that will be your side seam’s stitching length to form the hoodie.

Stitch a ⅛” seam from the hoodie’s tip/pointy part to your marked point. Your stitching will also close your turning opening.

Go forth and live the scoodie life.

    Pretty! Love the fabric you used. Should get hold of some (o:
    I’ll make the small one for my Scoodie (Bibi).

  2. The fabulous Sarah@PingsAndNeedles allegedly said:

    that is wonderful (you look like a wizardess!)

    This is a great project. I’m going to make one of these darlins just for me … I’m an umbrellaphobe which isn’t great for rainy UK! (inconsiderate people + pointy spokes make me angry) I always wear wider scarves so that I can be-hood myself.

    Now, if our rioters had been wearing these maybe they would have just been milling about complimenting each other on fabric choice and straight seams, rather than looting and burning.

    (I know it’s a serious issue, but sometimes you just gotta let go of the things you can’t do anything about)

    Anyway, I’m going to start the trend in Brighton …


  3. The fabulous Starry allegedly said:

    Ooh I am definitely a hood person but you can’t have a hood on all your clothes and you also don’t want to be mistaken for a looter xD. I should definitely make one of these, so pretty!

  4. The fabulous Laura Jane allegedly said:

    Lol! This is such a cute project :-) You look very dashing in your hood; fit to fight trolls, orks, and british chavs alike.

  5. The fabulous Cindy allegedly said:

    Monica!! My Hero!!!! You’ve done it yet again. I LOVE this!! I will definitely be making one of these. It will be GREAT for my long walks up the side walk to my office. Why they ever designed the building they way they did is beyond my pea brain, but we call it the walk of death. You’re lucky to make it to the door in the freezing Iowa winters and in the summer, you loose about 10 lbs just walking from your car to the door with the sun pounding down and sucking every bit of moisture out of you. Hhhhmmm….I guess loosing the 10 lbs is something I shouldn’t complain about. LOL But at least I know this winter I’ll be warm and stylin with my Scoodie! :o)

  6. The fabulous DianeP allegedly said:

    Loved the Scoodie - what a great idea and stylish too!

    I think a little Monster gift card holder would look great sewn on the bottom near the prairie points.

    Good job Monica - you look cute in your Scoodie and your puppy does too!

  7. The fabulous Heather allegedly said:

    Okay that is too cute, you are too :) I may have to make some of these for the kids! They’d love them.

  8. The fabulous mn2nm allegedly said:

    I LOVE this! What a fantastic idea. I definitely need a scoodie or two. Maybe with a nice minkee lining for winter? Thanks for sharing it with us!

  9. The fabulous Megan allegedly said:

    Definitely adding this to my “back to school” project pile. The kidlets will LOVE these!

  10. The fabulous Ruth Fidino allegedly said:

    Love the idea of using minkee for the lining. Perfect for winter walks along the river. Oooooh I’m gonna be styling.

  11. The fabulous VickiT allegedly said:

    That is just too stinkin’ adorable. Thank you.

  12. The fabulous Amy allegedly said:

    Adorable! And looks easy too. I am soooo ready for an easier sewing project. Thanks again for sharing with us, Monica.

  13. The fabulous Jennifer allegedly said:

    Cracks me up! You look much happier than the dog to be sporting this ensemble. ;-)

  14. The fabulous pam allegedly said:

    I’m going to have to start hating you if you can’t just cut back a bit on how darn clever you are. Darnit. Pace yourself. xo???

    And omg how cute is the your sweet dog living the life?

  15. The fabulous Kristyne allegedly said:

    HILARIOUS! The expression on your puppers’ face … “When is she going to take this thing off me? I’m not auditioning for Merlin or Gandalph, am I?”

    You, on the other hand, look like you’re ready to brew a big batch of crafting love potion. :)

  16. The fabulous Tabitha O. allegedly said:

    wow I blinked and I saw gandalf for a minute there lol NOT that I am comparing you to an old man but that you look quite fetchingly magical because didn’t everyone have a bit of a crush on gandalf?!

  17. The fabulous KZK allegedly said:

    That is TOTALLY cool! I must make one. Some. Christmas presents!
    My Siberian Huskies would like to know what you bribed your Golden with to get her/him to pose so nicely. :)

  18. The fabulous Teresa allegedly said:

    Ohhh, I think I am going to try this, but I’ll add a perpendicular seam in the back so that the hood doesn’t poke. That always makes me want to a tad postal, knowing it’s sticking straight out from the back of my head.

  19. The fabulous pat sloan allegedly said:

    do the 2 of you have matching ones?? How ADORABLE!

  20. The fabulous Heather allegedly said:

    How fun is this? I think I need to make them for my kids and my dog!

  21. The fabulous ina allegedly said:

    The picture of the dog was priceless…

  22. The fabulous Katie allegedly said:

    I love the gnomie-ness of this! I;m making one tonight!

  23. The fabulous Mary Ann allegedly said:

    So cute and just last Sunday my sweet 3 yr old granddaughter told me she loved hoodies! Just today I got yards of 1001 Peeps but its for her purple quilt. Sigh…she moved to a big girl bed 2 weeks ago.

  24. The fabulous Amanda Elizabeth allegedly said:

    o m g. tomorrow I’m getting up extra early to make this!!!! I have like, NO yardage (strictly fq kinda gal) but if I don’t make this like, NOW I’m going to implode!!!! Why are you the cutest EVER???

  25. The fabulous Kat allegedly said:

    OMG, I wish you could have heard my sheer enthusiasm as I realized the possibilities…
    My bf may not speak to me for a couple hours. He may or may not have thought a relative died…

  26. The fabulous Bellgirl allegedly said:

    Inspired! I love your cozy-eared canine model ;)

  29. The fabulous Christina allegedly said:

    Oh how sweet! How did I not know you had a golden?!? Her(?) coloring is so much like my Casey’s was. Obviously I don’t pay close enough attention. :)

  30. The fabulous Thimbleanna allegedly said:

    You’re a funny girl Ms. Monica! That’s too cute. Now, if you’ll make one in Red, you’ll look just like that little girl and maybe a big bad wolf will chase you — which, I’m sure, would be very fun and exciting!

  31. The fabulous Karin allegedly said:

    Leave it to you to come up with something so cute! And you look adorable. :)

  32. The fabulous vicki allegedly said:

    THAT is adorable–and so are you! I like your first “model” too–tres chic!!

  34. The fabulous QBee - Mary Ann allegedly said:

    Beautiful doggie looks put out to have his/her dignity toyed with. You, on the other hand, look cute and Happy, Ms. H.Z. Your idea is cute and clever, which seems reduntant to talk about when it comes to your designs.

  35. The fabulous Mary Anne Drury allegedly said:

    I just LOVE that dog !! AND his Scoodie !!! What a BRILLIANT IDEA !!!

  36. The fabulous Megan allegedly said:

    You are BEE_OO_TI_FUL!!! I’m thinking I might need one of these! I read your ‘profile’ in APNQ and you are too cool for words! We chatted about you down at Center Diamond and we all decided you were QUEEN OF ASTORIA!!!! Thanks for the ‘tute’…

  37. The fabulous Kristin J allegedly said:

  41. The fabulous Katy allegedly said:

    how the heck did I miss this? I want that dog in a scoodie. Please send him over right away.

  42. The fabulous Wrennette allegedly said:

    You dear dear soul. You have the most wonderful ideas and are always so generous to share. As with many others who have written…I have been in need of ‘just the right thing’ and this dear Monica is IT. We are older…and not very ‘mobile’…and this is perfect for myself and my dear Mommie. Her 89th is in November and she is going to get an everyday model and a Christmas model. If I am able I will make her a Fall/Autumn one. So, if you find yourself in….Solano County…..this Winter keep your eye out for two little ladies walking side by side with canes…proudly displaying their new HOODIES a la Monica.
    Thankyou once again for your generous spirit.

  43. The fabulous Stephanie allegedly said:

    Great tutorial! So cute!! My son was just running around the house with a long piece of fabric from stash making his on version of this. He would be thrilled if I actually made this with a hood.

Farting around with needle & thread and then blogging about it.
