    Final Product: What You Will Create

    Preface:
    This project is fun to do and makes bath time safer for baby. Two terrycloth washcloths are used for the project. One is embroidered and then Velcro sewn onto one edge. The cloths are sewn together around the outer edge. The Velcro opening forms a pocket that a bar of soap can be inserted through. Having two layers of cloth, with the soap pocketed inside, makes washing baby easier and safer. The little duck embroidery will amuse baby during bath time.


    Step 1:
    Gather the materials and read through the instructions before beginning. Print out a paper template of the design and color sequence.

    Step 2:
    Decide which cloth you’d like to embroider. Cut out the paper template of the design. If needed, steam the wash cloth to remove wrinkles. Quarter fold the washcloth and lightly crease. Open up the cloth and center the template, aligning the cross hairs with the crease lines; pin the template in place. Hoop the cloth with one layer of poly mesh stabilizer.

    Step 3:
    Load the design on the machine and align the needle to the center of the template. Remove the template and place one piece of water soluble stabilizer on top of the cloth. Start the machine and stitch the design following the color sequence.

    Step 4:
    After the design finishes stitching, remove the fabric from the hoop, trim the excess stabilizer, and steam away the water soluble stabilizer that remains.

    Step 5:
    Next it is time to apply the hook and loop tape. Cut a piece of hook and loop tape the length of the flat area of the cloth - enough to be able to slide a bar of soap through - and trim it in half lengthwise if using the 5/8” hook and loop tape. Lay the cloths wrong side up and the hook and loop tape pieces right side up along the edges as shown. Use the glue stick to run a bead of glue on the wrong side of each hook and loop tape piece (or use pins to secure the tape to the wash cloth binding).

    Step 6:
    Once both pieces have glue, press them into position on the wash cloth binding. Be sure they align across from each other on the cloths; press in place firmly and let the glue dry.

    Step 7:
    Stitch the hook and loop tape sections into place. Stitch along one edge, pivot at the corners, and stitch along the other edge. Do this for both sections.

    Step 8:
    After the hook and loop tape is sewn on, now it is time to sew the cloths together. Matching the cloth wrong sides together, align and secure the hook and loop tape together. Align the remaining cloth edges together and pin.

    Step 9:
    Sew the binding edges of the cloths together first along the outer edge and then back again along the inner edge; be sure not to sew over the hook and loop tape closure.

    Congratulations on completing the “Just Ducky Soap Cloth”! This would be a great bazzar item not to mention doing several for a baby shower gift.
