    This is one of those times. :)

    I started to make a T-shirt. It was going to be for my boys to take to a birthday party. I cut out the pieces and dyed them with Meg. 5 pieces went into the dyebath. 5 pieces went into the dryer. Somewhere, somehow, between the dryer and the couch, one piece vanished into thin air. :rolleyes:

    Okay, fine. I wasn't really happy with the color, anyway. I made a different T-shirt for the birthday party, and off they went.

    But then those 4 remaining pieces kept looking at me. Or I kept looking at them. They ARE microwave popcorn butter color yellow/orange. Noticable, to say the least. And I hate to waste the fabric, since I just love border prints.

    Aha! Inspiration strikes! :D

    Pattern is Scarlet's Jaycrackers. Elastic from JA or Hancock's, can't remember. Back tag (which says, MENS UNDERWEAR) from Serena. These are for Josiah, so no model shot--he's too old for that. :)

    It's Scarlet's pattern. :)

    I also like a KS pattern Chococat gave me --2426 maybe? for briefs, or the ottobre boxerbrief pattern. If you look in my gallery at SMamas, you can see some of the KS briefs. They have 2 views, one with the "flap" and one with a plain double front. My boys prefer the no flap version.

    I made my own pattern from cutting up Brianna's old panties to make Eli "bubderwear". It's all one piece. When he was training, I would add a light soaker down the middle, but now that he's a super big boy, he doesn't need that any more. :) ...I can't believe I've been through potty training 6 times, lol.
