1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crocheted Batman Underpants on: March 13, 2013 12:03:55 AM
A friend of mine recently found out that I crocheted, and asked me if I could make him some underpants.  He's going to Vegas with a bunch of guys, and thinks it will be a hilarious joke to come out of his room wearing them one day, pretending he didn't know anyone else was there.  I warned him that they'd be gappy, and he asked that I make them extra tight to really maximize the gross-out factor.  Haha.  

I didn't have any men's undies on hand to model them after, so I bought a pattern and used a Batman chart I found online



And of course I had to try them on......



I wasn't happy with the waistband, it didn't have any snap to it (once it stretched out, it stayed stretched out) and the flap made it really bulky.  If I ever make these again, I'll definitely modify that, but overall, it was a fun project that worked up really fast!

My apologies to his Vegas buddies.

I never did post pics of what I sent to boystress, so here it is:  A short-sleeved cardigan with a headband for the new baby, hats for baby and big sister, and a butterfly mobile.  I also sent some Dora crayons and colouring books.

I received my package from the most amazing angel of all time, Rhymesworange!!  My nephew, little Nickolas Christopher, was born 2 weeks ago, so the timing couldn't have been better.

First off, a quilt!!



My sister absolutely loves the colours, it looks so good in the nursery.

And then, as if that wasn't enough...



A crocheted viking hat, a knit cap with hand-made felt patch, and red converse booties!!  His auntie Rachel is a big Whovian nerd, so you'd better believe he'll be getting a little blue pinstripe suit when he grows into the shoes.



A triumphant fist-pump of delight over his cool new hat

Thank you so much, Rhymesworange, you totally spoiled Nickolas, and his momma and I are sososo grateful!!!

This board went so quiet!  Is anyone out there? 

I love, love, LOVE the Dr Who stuff!  I'd put that in my own room. Haha

I know my partner received some time ago, so I'll try to post pictures soon.  I took them with my mum's camera because mine was acting up, so I'll ask her to email them tomorrow.

Eeeek! I hope it doesn't take that long, or the baby will have outgrown her presents!

I sent nearly a month ago, hopefully it won't take too much longer to get to Australia!!

The packages so far are great!  That quilt is gorgeous.

The past few weeks have been insanely busy here, so I apologize for not being more active on this board, but I have been crafting my little heart out on my swap items!  I sent yesterday, but now comes the hard part... Waiting for my partner to receive!!  I'm way too excited to find out if she likes her package. 

Boystress, your poor ankle!  I hope you're okay... I wish I had read this before I sent, I'd have added a little get well present.

Reading about 10+ lb babies makes me extremely grateful that it's my sister who's expecting, and not me.  Haha
