Alex is the big winner in the sewing game lately. He needed some more as the last ones I'd made was 2020 . The fabric is a cotton remnant from Spotlight from ages ago. I really liked the bug print and perfect size for these boxers. It's the same pattern Simplicity 9958. This is such a great pattern as it's just two pieces with a fly which I normally close but you could leave it open. It's got full size range for kids and adults. You can just see the clear buttons on the photo above. I bought these labels in Stoff and Stil when in Cologne in 2019 so I'm happy to use it for the first time. I don't like labels in my clothes so I'll only use them when I make something for someone else. I have been cooking still too. I normally make stollen for Christmas but as my sister passed away on 3 December I just didn't feel the love, but on Christmas Eve morning I decided I'm make a small batch. My sister was an amazing cook and she must have been watching over
My friend gave me a box of scraps, actually there are a lot of scraps of some amazing fabric and there was some of this Bubble O' Bill sports fabric. I had just enough to make Alex some togs, using the Jalie 3242 undies pattern I'd used before . It had been a while and Alex was in desperate need for togs. I also cut out a pair of Batman ones too but I don't have a photo yet. I'll edit when I do. I had a bit more of both the Bubble O'Bill and Batman fabric to cut out a pair of togs for his girlfriend but I haven't sewn them up yet. I actually haven't been able to Tetris out the bottoms and looking for maybe a fabric to match with it. Alex was appalled when I suggested they wear them together... "are you serious Mum!"
