A small quilt and a whole lot of Underwear

Can you tell I am not much into titles? Or posting ... apparently- I am so behind on posting... yada yada yada... 

I made this little guy for fun. I really wanted to try the whole triangle thing. But not enough to want to do something huge. So this is another scrap quilt. I just used what I had on hand, minus the backing. I am not even sure what the end dimensions were... Guessing somewhere in the 30x40 inch area. 
 It was a lot of fun but if I did it bigger the  triangles could not be this small! 
 It found a home with an adorable new little boy and his family. 

So underwear... I can not believe how expensive and cheap feeling kids underwear is (at least what I found) Add to that I do not want cartoon graphics all over them... really... I know I am so boring! 
So when Susan from Crafterhours posted about making her girls underwear I decided to go ahead and try it out. 
The pattern is from Kitschycoo and  I am very happy with how easily they came together and  the fit looks like it should be very comfortable. 

2.5 yards of Jersey knit made 11 pairs of underwear and 2 oliver and s dresses in size 12-18 months. That is roughly $28 in material (including the underwear pattern which goes to size 6).
Not sure that this will be helpful to any of you, but there it is. 


  1. Super cute undies! Love that pattern and your "boring" (but super cute) versions! -Susan

  2. I like your triangles! I had fun making mine. The underwear are a good idea! They look soft and comfy! I wonder though if they will get spoiled by awesome comfy undies and you'll have to make them for the rest of your life! LOL!
