My condolences to you and your family on the loss of your dad.  You dad's hospice did a wonderful and beautiful thing by having the ceremony and creating that piece.  I'm glad to hear it will be displayed.

I don't even do karate kicks in my dreams, tenemus!  I suppose now I'll have to go back to the fabric store.  Darn.  Tongue  I see cozy flannel boxers in my future.  Ahhhhhh.  Thanks for your help and advice!

I've made 9 pairs now, so I rarely have to use the directions.  If I used fabrics that could use the same color of thread, I think I could do 3 an hour!  If I didn't try to watch Flight of the Conchords and have a cocktail while doing it, that is.  Wink  I also gave up on zigzagging the seams and just used pinking shears.

Do you mind me asking your size?  I'm a 6 and wonder if even a boys' L would fit better than the men's S.

Hysterical and very creative ideas for imitating toppings!  Awesome that you even got the boxes!

It's so fun to see everyone's decorations and holiday craftiness!  Some people have a Santa collection to display this time of year, I have a tree collection.  Bottle brush, tinsel, feather, glass, metal, ceramic, wood, plastic, whatnot-over-foam-form, etc.  I don't have a xmas tree, though - no kids, a couple rascally cats, single-gal-on-the-go and all that. 

The green ones (plus Bigfoot for giggles) on top of the piano.

The bottle brush trees with little ball ornaments were crafted by my biggest Tree Enabler.

The white, clear, silver and gold ones on top of the tv cabinet.

The tall silver one with the white balls was crafted by the Tree Enabler, too.

The turquoise, teal and purple ones on my dresser.  The large one was covered with vintage costume jewelry last year, but I think I'll skip it this year just to cut myself some slack.

And the 2 middle-sized trees (ribbon and tinsel in pots) were also crafted by the Tree Enabler, who is also a shoe enabler, by the way.

The large gold one, with teal decorations (inspired by the scrap of fabric that I through around the base last year) that sits on a shelf in a window at the top of my basement stairwell.

The small collection of Kermit the Frog ornaments on top of a mini barrister's cabinet that houses The Kermitage Museum (my Kermit Collection).  Joined by a fancy cat who's yet to fine the perfect holiday home, but I love her and think her red outfit suits the display nicely.

Still working on a way to display all the Star Trek ornaments w/o getting a tree.  There is a long, frustrating story to go with that project, so I think I'll try to figure it out after the holiday and just be ready to go next ear.

Haha!  Your reply reminds me of a friend of mine who's dad actually was a milkman for awhile when he was a kid.  Anyway, I never put the snaps in, because none of his store-bought boxers have snaps, so it seems like he doesn't want them so why bother?  I also omit Step 1 and do all my pressing/pinning of the waist and legs at once, then sew them (Steps 11 and 14), then do the elastic (Steps 12 & 13).

How'd you modify them for a girlie fit?

I know that I already mentioned boxer shorts (and I think someone else did, too), but I wanted to share with this thread the Days of the Week Boxers set I just finished crafting for the ManFlesh.  Warning: while the pics aren't racy, some of the fabric is suggestive in this context.

Whew!  I've just finished a set of Days of the Week Boxers for the ManFlesh for Christmas.  If there's one thing I know well now that I didn't before it's Simplicity pattern 9958.  Hoo boy!  I've now made 9 pairs of those suckers, because making sassy underpants for this guy is addictive.

A close up of the Day tag:

I like how the font and the crude cutting and sewing adds a bit of a retro-name-sewn-in-for-sleep-away-camp feel, even though that was just a happy accident.  The tags are ink jet iron-on transfers.

The set in their box:

Sunday - Thursday:

Tiger Stripe-inside joke (the only flannel pair, the rest are woven cotton prints); Stanley Tape Measures-tee hee; Bones-ahem; Wood-tchk, tchk; Purple Swirls-the most masculine purple I could find that trip (purple is his favorite color).

Friday & Saturday:

Dogs Playing Poker-couldn't pass it up; Heels on Wheels pin-ups-he'd probably prefer a more retro-style pin-up, but I found this first and he'll definitely appreciate the kitsch factor.

And my post wouldn't be complete with out an image of and special thanks to my primary Studio Assistant, Pearl.  Hold that corner of the pattern down, will ya?

I love your amplifier bag, too!  Awesome use of pleather and silver net stuff!

Ah ha!  That is really cute and you've just inspired me!  I've a few Dover Books with the accompanying CD-ROMs and some shrink plastic meant to go through a printer.  My mind is swirling with possibilities.  Thanks for sharing!
