Thanks!  Spiderman would be AWESOME!  I've been trying to find Ninja fabric, but haven't had any luck at all.  Between pairs I've bought, modified and made from scratch he's been given 13 pairs and may be pretty much set for underwear, though.  Darn it!  I've some more ideas!

Those two new ones are GENIUS!  I hope I get one of those Bind-it-Alls soon, because ever since this topic started I've been seeing things in terms of book covers!

Thanks lolacat and Queen of Fools! 

I've not met another tree person before.  Wee!  I'd love to see yours if you have photos. I have all kinds of ideas for crafting some more, but never seem to get to it.  Perhaps sometime during 2008?

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.

tenesmus:

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?

Thanks!

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.
