I sew loves my babies. So I couldn't resist buying them this cool knit Marvel heroes material...especially since it was on the $3.47 and below spot the bolt table before Hancock started the going out of business sale. That's a sad story in itself.
Any way, I had no idea what I would make other than pjs. They have plenty of those so that wasn't really an option. Last night, I got frustrated with the idea of my potty training champion only having 5 pairs of underwear. We threw away many pairs during the potty training struggle. This caused us to have to wash his clothes more frequently than every 7 days. I didn't want to go to the store either. Then, my mind said "If I can make underwear, why buy it?" That's all the motivation I needed!
Off to Internet land for help. Landed on Craftsy and found the MBJM Speedy Pants pattern. It's a PDF pattern for briefs and boxer briefs from sizes 6 months to 12 years. I made the briefs in size 2 years. The first pair took 2 hours because I had to read the pattern over and over, piece the pattern together, and over analyze the whole process. But, the second pair only took 30 minutes. This pattern is so easy and quick. They fit the little guy perfectly. Oh and they are super cute. I'll be making the boxer briefs, too.
My baby made me feel so good about making these. When he realized what I was making, he said, "Mom, are you making me underwear? That's awesome Mom. You're the best!" So, you better believe Mom is looking for more cute fabrics to make this cute little undies. Ummmm... how many pair are too many?
Until next time, Smooches!
