Teddy wears cloth nappies. He has a big bum. He needs pants. Using this video tutorial from the excellent website RookieMoms, I made him some from an old t-shirt of Keith's. Actually, I buggered up the steps a little bit, and checking out their sources, I might go with this tutorial from redcurrant next time.
This old Nelson Mandela shirt is super soft. I tried to feature the text but my brain doesn't work that way. It's upside down.
Still, they are very light and great for summer, and even though I did a bodgy job, I think I know where I went wrong. Am I causing pain to you good and decent seamstresses out there with my loose threads and my twisted elastic? Does it help you to know that I am a little bit ashamed? A little ashamed. BUT a little proud, too. ..cause I made them - as Ivy would say - all by my own.
