I was going to post something encouraging and supportive about the fab job you did on the maternity pants... until I linked to your husband's blog.

Hi.La.Ri.Ous.

Thanks for the laugh. Smiley

@ClouDesign - I cut up an old pair of undies and traced around each pattern piece. Smiley

Took me a few goes to get exactly the right fit but it's worth experimenting.

As they say, toile, toile and toile again... have fun. Smiley

...out of some old T-shirts, lycra (cotton elastane) for the waist band and some fold-over elastic that I had left over from making nappies.

THEY ARE SO COMFY

I've just made another pair where I worked out how to include a double-layered gusset with the entire seam enclosed.

I think I'm hooked!!

19  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Commissioned quilt.... disaster saved!! on: June 30, 2011 07:48:57 PM
It could have been a disaster....

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=381774.0

But now it's finished. And I AM SO RELIEVED. And pleased with how it turned out.

This is a slightly-larger-than-cot-sized quilt, 54"x43", backed with an upcycled thrift sheet and quilted with random wavy lines using my walking foot. There are a few too many areas where the fabric in the patchwork has shifted with the quilting, because I realised, too late, that my basting spray was out of date and no longer sticky enough to hold all the layers in place properly. Lesson learned for next time!!

C&C welcome. X
