Underpants! Tee-Hee

I got  a tiny bit of sewing done this week.  I volunteered to be a test sewer for kitschycoo's newest pattern.  Which just so happened to be kid's underwear.  This is convenient timing as my daughter is constantly running out of clean chones.  

I dug through my stash of knits and and bag of t-shirts to re-con.  I found this super cute pear knit and a paw print knit to use.  The pattern works up really quickly and only takes about 15 min to sew up!  Here are the three pairs I made (two for the girl and one for the boy):



  My daughter adored the pear pair and insisted on wearing them right away.  The paw prints however were not her favorite because "they have black on them and I do not like black."  (She is super girly and thinks black is a "boy" color.)   I like the fuller coverage on these.  They are more like boy shorts and are age appropriate for a 6 year old.   Perfect for under skirts!

The boy was not as impressed with his.  He is still not really potty trained and I think he found it odd to not be wearing a diaper.  I do like the fit of these so I will probably be making more as we start to get him fully potty trained.

I just had to make them a matching pair, it was too cute not to!

As we were finishing up the pictures, my husband walks in from work and gives us the oddest look.  He then pretends to dial (I hope!) child services, and I hear him say, "No, this time, the pants are completely off."  :D

Oh my gosh I am in LOVE, absolutely in love with that pear print. It is probably one of the cutest things I've seen! (Oh, and nice underoo's!)

Super cute! You could make a dress/skirt with matching panties!

Haha! Your husband sounds like he has a fantastic sense of humor!

I love the cut of those! It looks so comfy. I would wear them myself lol. I agree with your daughter that the paws were just not girlie enough, but I too am kind of a girly girl - ESPECIALLY when it comes to my panties!
