Ever since I moved my sewing studio to my mom's - and sew there often - my mother has taken up the craft more. Yesterday she finished some underwear for my son. Cute? You decide:
You can turn any little piece of fabric into high-quality underwear for a boy. Yes, that's a real front placket (sewn shut, though). Yes, these are five-paneled boxers with the cute butt panel.
The Timberlane Press "First Choice" boxer pattern meets the definition of a great sewing pattern - replete with well-described techniques, tips, and thorough diagrams. Even a beginning stitcher would enjoy these. They have an adult version that is my husband's favorite-ever boxer.
Nels loves them. Natch.
see the mundane life of a housewife.

Very cute! That's great that you're inspiring you mom to sew more. One of my first few projects was boxers for DH -- maybe I should make him a couple more before he gets back from his business trip. Of course I need him to be here physically to put in the elastic.. I'm just contemplating the goofy fabrics I could make them out of.

Cute boxers and model. Sewing is contagious as my DS recently asked for a sewing machine. She is in her early 50's and has never mentioned sewing before I sent her some embroidered (by me) T-shirts. Now, she wants to learn to sew. Up until now, only my mom and I sewed.

|Those are cute little boxers! I've used that pattern and I struggled with the elastic somewhat awful. I loved the finished look though. Did you move all of your sewing stuff to your moms? Does she live close to you?||
