The very lovely + talented Penny from Sewtakeahike shared her undies pattern with us all. There have been so many fun + funny undies popping up everywhere - if you are on instagram, take a look at #sewtakeahikeundies.
I copied the undies-template into a couple different sizes, then made little plastic templates so I could work out some fun fussy-cuts for all my undies. Originally, I was going to make some zip-pouches for travelling, but then I decided I wanted to sew all the undies into just a couple of bags which I can use more often ... oh, the possibilities ...
Once again, I turned to Jeni's fabulous lined-drawstring-bag tutorial. I've made two undies-bags for me - one with two undies, and one with four. Let the undies-a-thon begin.

|[undies for those bah humbug! days ... wish I had more of this fabric, it was a scrap-pressie from someone, I just can't remember who!]|
|[I LOVE this cat! So wish I'd bought more of this fabric]|
|[for those days where you are feeling secretly superior ... ]|
|[time to spruce up ... ]|
And here are way too many pics of the bags ... I followed Jeni's instructions, except for a specific size - I sewed a 'front piece' and then worked out my lining measurements based on that.
|[mug + pencils for size-reference ... how much are you loving the Kate Spade mug ... yep, me too]|

|[the back - Violet Craft Waterfront Park on top, Denyse Schmidt Chicopee on the bottom - love them both]|

I don't even think my undies-obsession is over ... I have the templates stashed away ready to make some more, once I've ticked a few other things off my to-do list. Hope you all have a very happy weekend. xoxo cat
