If you love craft projects where you get to make something unique, you will love this peek-a-boo sublimated hoodie! I am going to show you how to make your own custom hoodies step-by-step in this blog post.
I am obsessed with how nice this sublimated hoodie turned out. Plus, making it was a lot of fun, so I wanted to share the process with you here.
When thinking about how I wanted the hoodie to look, I knew I wanted it to have something a little extra special. So, for added design, I decided to add a peek-a-boo design inside the hood with a sublimated pattern, and I love how it turned out!
Then, on the front of the hoodie, I put my logo and added a design to the hoodie’s front pocket (or the kangaroo pocket).
Because I used a blank white pullover hoodie, the design’s colors really stand out. They look just as awesome in person as they do in these photos!
And, as it turns out, my girls also really liked the sublimated hoodie, so I made one for each of them as well!
I also decided to do this as a sublimation project instead of using heat transfer vinyl because of the long-lasting graphics you get when you do sublimation.

What You Need To Make The Peek-A-Boo Sublimated Hoodie
To make the hoodie itself, you will need these materials.
- Blank Polyester Hoodie – you can choose whatever color you want, but I do recommend using a light color so your design can stand out! I also recommend using polyester material over cotton to get the best results.
- Heat Tape
- Butcher Paper
- Lint Roller
Since this is a sublimation project, you will need the following tools.
- Sublimation Printer (like the Epson ET-8550 or the Sawgrass SG 500)
- Sublimation Ink (also known as sublimation dye)
- Heat Press
How To Create A Design For Your Own Peek-A-Boo Sublimated Hoodie
I created my own design for this hoodie centered around the Color Me Crafty brand. But you’ll want to create your own awesome design!
You could do so many cool things with this peek-a-book sublimated hoodie concept. For example, you could create a pattern with dinosaurs for a young boy or butterflies for a young girl. You could add names or quotes to the front.
The possibilities are endless!
I recommend brainstorming some ideas before you make your own great designs.
Then, make your patterns and text SVG files using your favorite design software.
When making the design, remember that you need two large sublimation prints for this project. Mine were both 11×17.
