oh hi! so, i feel a little funny creating this post about some underwear i made for my kid. but i’m doing it anyway, i think because it may have less to do with underwear, and everything to do with the fact that i made something! i consider sewing my job (the best job), but it means that i don’t often take the time to make things that stay in our own home.

i know i could have gone out to any old place and bought underwear, but girl’s underthings are strange – they don’t ever seem to fit well and it’s hard to get away from those licenced characters we all love so much. plus, i’d rather spend an hour in front of my sewing machine than an hour at, um, any shopping place. anyway, i have lots of scrap knit fabric around (and i thrifted some pieces just for the prints), found this pattern (i am always happy to buy patterns, especially printable ones. i would much rather support someone who has already figured it out than take the frustrating time to do it myself), and gave it a try. i made a very big deal about these when they were done because i think they are amazing and want a whole bunch for myself. and they actually get worn! hugely satisfying.

these are so easy, no serger required – a definite recommend…

    Those are the most awesome kids underpants I’ve ever seen. Just might have to try that pattern out myself. Thanks for the idea!
