While shopping in Salvation Army yesterday, I came across an adorable tie-dye t-shirt in the kids section that read "Peace Love & Koalas - Cleveland Metroparks Zoo". Of course it was way too small to fit me in it's original form, I brought it home and grabbed a pair of underwear that fit (didn't bother cutting them up as they're fairly new) and traced a pattern from them on some newspaper. After placing the patterns how I wanted them I cut out the general shape, once I seamed everything I grabbed some black micro stretchknit from my stash and cut enough for the waist and leg bands. I didn't bother using any elastic as  the knit provides enough stretch without becoming too loose. I would have liked to have serged all the seams for a cleaner finish but trying to thread my serger with woolly nylon thread was proving to be too much of a pain so I used my sewing machine instead and put it on the stretch knit stitch. They're not perfect, but all in all I'm pretty pleased. It's the first pair of underwear that I've made for myself that actually fit! Now if only I had time to make more... Cheesy

C&C Welcome!  Kiss
