i caught cal patch over on craftstylish showing how to whip up some comfy undies all on your own today. the best part of these panties - they are made from an old t-shirt! yes, these would be some damn comfy undies. at this rate my hubby is not going to have any clothes left in his closet.

so go take a second look at those t-shirts in your closet and instead of wearing another pair of tight, wedgie giving undies, why not make yourself a pair to fit your measurements?

  1. I don't think I have the energy to make my own unmentionables. They are awfully cute though.

  2. i made a few pairs of my own a few years ago, but I could not figure out the trick to the edging. I'll look at these, try some for myself, then make some mini ones for natasha!

  3. I'd love to make them myself, I just tried yesterday to make a pair and went ok but not perfect. Still learning.
