So Tool Boy is almost 2 and a half years old now and I've got potty training on the brain! I bought this great pattern for Ditto Daddy boxers to start sewing up some training pants. These are the cutest things ever! They look like Daddy's boxers but have a soaker pad in them that you can snap in when needed, and then when they are trained, leave it out and wear the boxers as underwear! How clever! I bought the boy and girl patterns so I could sew some up for Little Miss as well.
These are neat since you can customize the absorbency for day or night and have different levels of absorbent soakers for the same underwear just by changing the soaker pad. The soaker pad can be backed with water resistant PUL to help keep clothes a little dryer in case of accidents. They can be made from cotton knit to really look and feel like underwear, or to give some extra wetness protection, the outer layer can be fleece or wool.
I have made a few pair now and am very pleased with how they are coming together!
These a cute pair of the Boxer Briefs in cotton knit Fighter Jet print.
A couple pair of all fleece Dry Nights Ditto Daddy Boxers with double inserts. These are for nighttime or for just getting started with training when the accidents are often!
And of course, an action shot! Here is Tool Boy in his ChooChoo boxer style training pants! He really thinks he is a big boy now!
