マトリョシカ Hoodie Tutorial

Hey, everyone~. Even though I had said in comment replies on my dance cover of “マトリョシカ” that I wasn’t going to make a hoodie tutorial… I decided that I might as well since I was going to make another hoodie anyway. (^_^”)> I hope this helps those who wanted to make one (though I also recommend watching the tutorials that are on YouTube~)!

 

Materials needed:
Hoodie
Hole punch
Scissors
Elmer’s glue (or hot glue)
White fabric, Black fabric (and any other color you want to use)
Black permanent marker
Pencil

1. Draw two circles on the white fabric for the eyes. I made mine a little bigger than the bottom of a yogurt container, but you can make them any size you want.

2. Cut the white circles out.

3. Draw large black circles on the eye pieces with your permanent marker and fill them in, or cut out two black circles that are slightly smaller than the white circles and glue them to the center of the white pieces.

4. Draw out a shape for one side of the mouth on the white fabric. Outline the shape with your permanent marker.

5. Draw in the teeth, then color in the rest of the space.

6. Cut the mouth shape out, then lay it face down on the white fabric. Trace the piece, then repeat the previous step.

7. Use the hole punch to make the dots that go around the eyes. I recommend using black dots for light-colored hoodies and white dots for dark-colored hoodies, but you can use any colors you want. (You can also make any shape you want, I suppose, such as lines or triangles instead of dots.)

8. Glue one side of the mouth to your hood. I had the top of the mouth a little over halfway down the hood. Do the same on the other side of the hood.

9. Place the eye so that it is centered from the top of the hood to the top of the mouth and from the front of the hood to the back, then glue it down. Do the same on the other side of the hood.

10. Glue half of the dots around one eye, keeping them evenly spaced, then use the other half of the dots around the other eye.

I actually chose a black hoodie to match one of my “Matryoshka” keychains~. ^_^

So… there it is. It didn’t turn out as well as my red hoodie. orz I tried to make the eyes the same size as the red one, but I forgot that the black hoodie is smaller than the red one, so the eyes look too big. (^_^”)> Also, I made the teeth smaller on the black one… meh. Anyway, I hope this was at least a bit helpful… (^_^”)> Thanks for reading!

    that was a great tutorial althought im not sure about the marker thing.Does it fade or go on the other fabric after you wash your hoodie ?

    • Surimu-chan Says:

      Thanks~! ^_^ I’m not sure about the marker either, actually. I’ve only worn the hoodie a few times for short amounts of time, so it hasn’t needed to be washed. If you’re worried about it, you could use black fabric for the eyes and mouth and cut out teeth from the white fabric, or maybe you could try some sort of paint… (^_^”)> Thanks for reading~!

  3. Lauren Says:

  4. Sam Says:

    your amazing, your hoodies are perfect and the dance covers

  5. maddy Says:

    What kind of fabric do you use for the eyes and mouth? And does the elmer’s glue hold well enough that they don’t fall off occasionally? Thanks!

    • Surimu-chan Says:

      I used plain cotton fabric (the fabric quarters (21″ x 18″ I think) that you can buy at craft stores; I think they’re usually used for quilts). The Elmer’s glue has been working just fine for me, but I hardly ever wear my “Matryoshka” hoodies, so I don’t know how well it would hold under heavy use. (^_^”)> I hope that helps!

  6. Mitsukuni Says:

    Omg i ❤ (heart) you I wanted to do this jacket long time ago

  7. Rin Kokushibyou Says:

    Does it say on well? Even when washed?

    • Surimu-chan Says:

      I’m not quite sure; I’ve only worn the hoodie a few times for short amounts of time, so it hasn’t needed to be washed. (^_^”)> If you’re worried about it, you can try using a stronger glue~.

    Thank you so very much! We’ve made three hoodies so far, and one was a gift for my best friend (whos a Rin Kagamine cosplayer) she loved it, and your tutorials are awesome. Every time we’ve learned a dance, we learned it from your tutorials! Keep on being awesome!

    Love,

    • Surimu-chan Says:

      You’re very welcome! I’m so glad you like my tutorials~! =D Thanks very much for watching my videos and checking out my blog (and I apologize for taking so long to reply to this! m(_ _)m). ^__^

  9. akchan24 Says:

    Will the fabric fall off if the jacket is washed?

    • Surimu-chan Says:

      I’m not sure if it will or not; I haven’t worn my hoodie much (and, when I did, it was only for a few minutes at a time), so it’s never gotten dirty enough to need washing. If you’re worried about the fabric falling off, you could try using a stronger glue, I suppose. (^_^”)> You could also try washing it on “Delicate” or hand-washing it.

    Actually, I did a couple with my friend, and we used acrylic paint on the plain jackets, and I think it looked a bit nicer… But you have to be more careful! It’s really durable too! You need to make a stencil thingy tho… This tutorial isn’t too bad tho!

    • Surimu-chan Says:

      I’m sure acrylic does look much better, but I had originally planned on taking the face off my hoodie when I was done with the dance so I could use the plain hoodie for something else. (^_^”)> I ended up leaving it on after all… orz Thanks for writing!

  11. Mīmumasutā Says:

    thanks for the tutorial… the hoodie might just be a halloween costume

  12. June Meechamnan Says:

    this isn’t about the this but if i wanted to do the dance this bye my self which way do i start off dancing? at 0:14 in your video which way would i start??

    • Surimu-chan Says:

      Hello~! Sorry for the late reply! m(_ _)m As for doing this dance by yourself, I would probably recommend learning the red part, though I would also recommend that you face the camera/front as much as possible. To do so, you would need to either not turn around when the red side turns, or you could do a full spin so that you’re facing the front again. Of course, it’s perfectly fine to learn either part, and it’s also perfectly fine to go ahead and turn around even if you’re dancing by yourself, but those were just a couple of suggestions. (^_^”)> I hope that helps! Thanks for writing~.

  13. Olivia Says:

    Hey
    How would you learn the dance at such a fast pace ?
    I know there are endless tutorials and slowed down versions , but when I do it with the original song , its really hard
    Thanks

    • Surimu-chan Says:

      It really does come down to practicing a little at a time. (^__^”)> Once you have a few moves learned, just keep doing those few until you can do them faster, then keep adding on a few more moves. I know many people who try to learn dances (not just this one) will always try to practice the entire dance all the way through each time, but I’ve found that breaking it up really does help me to learn it at whatever speed. I’m not sure if that helps, but I hope it does! Thanks for writing~! ^__^
