So today I'm going to talk knickers 'cos I mentioned in one of my posts about how I bought a kit and then went on to make three pairs of knickers in a week!
There are lots of patterns out there - some for using cotton, some for using jersey, some free, some not. I spent ages looking at patterns and decided that I really wanted one that used cotton fabric, as I have so much of it! I eventually settled on the Trixie Lixie pattern
- I really liked the shape of the knickers and there were some good reviews so I bought a kit so that I had everything needed.
I ordered it one day and it arrived the next - brilliant! After tracing and cutting out my pattern it only took an hour or so to make my first pair of knickers.

And the last couple of pairs took even less. These are a seriously quick satisfaction project needing only 1FQ of fabric and a couple of metres of knicker elastic. I've been posting my pics on Instagram and lots of people seemed interested and it got me thinking........ how would you like to do a Valentines Knicker Swap?!
What do you think? Sound like fun? I've spoken with Trixie Lixie and they loved the idea and have very kindly offered to sponsor the swap so there'll be prizes and everything! Let me know if you'd like to play and I'll post more details soon........
