This weeks Challenge: Something to make sewing easier (Rejected)
Best laid plans and all.. I had intended to make something to make sewing easier this week, the plan was a Chair Bag for the back of my sewing chair (You can find the free pattern here).
But Mr 2 is starting to toilet train and needed some training pants, so Tooshies it was, Tooshies are a nappy cover but also perfect for toilet training pants!
If they are made as per the pattern the small panel at the front ends up upside down but with a quick little change the front panel can face the right way up. Take your pattern and mark one line along the dotted pattern join line, mark another line 1 cm below it as shown in the photo. ( Below if you have the back end at the top)
Cut your back panel to the bottom line, turn your pattern piece around and cut the front panel to the top line. Attach these two pieces together by facing right sides together and overlocking.
If you’d like you can then fold the overlocked seam to one side and top stitch it in place. Then follow the instructions in the pattern to complete.
The little monster had stolen one pair from my sewing desk before I’d finished the other pair so I will be making a few more of these in the coming weeks.
Happy Sewing xx
