My boxers were made from fabric with cute little cars. I thought you might like to see how I cut up the underpants to make myself a couple of fat quarters of fabric (at least) to add to my stash.
First thing to do is cut off the waist band.
Maybe you can think of something to make out of it. I thought of a belt....add a D-ring perhaps. Let me know if you come up with something cute.
I used scissors to cut along the seams to dismantle the boxers. That seemed quicker than using a rotary cutter.
Using a seam ripper to remove the hem will only take about 6 minutes and will give you several more inches of fabric. Press the hem out once you "frog stitch" (rippit, rippit....get it?)
A pair of boxers in shreds..........................
........can produce quite a bit of fabric!
Fold it up real pretty and tie the package with one of the seams. No one will ever know what "shop" you purchased your new fabric from!
Liberty of London..........ready for my next project!
