When I ordered my first Girl Charlee KnitFix I added some extras to my order so I wouldn't have to pay for shipping. I would much rather spend that $12 on some more fabric. Some of the fabric I bought were these half yard knits. I thought it would be enough to make something for my grandson so I picked out some fabrics he would like not really knowing what I would make with them. A half yard would be enough to make a t-shirt with. I decided to make a t-shirt with a Stretch & Sew Pattern from the 70's that I got at the auction several months ago. I was pleased to discover that there was enough fabric left to make a pair of briefs to match. The brief pattern came from The Little One Yard Wonder Book. The first pair I make was the olive with the fawns and I made the size 4/5 thinking that would be plenty big enough for a 2 year old to grow into. He is not quite potty trained yet. Even though I could get the briefs on him they were a bit tight. I think I should have chose a bigger size partly because the fabric I used was not very stretchy. And little man has pretty hefty thighs. But he liked his Deer Underwear and T-Shirt.
The olive set turned out so cute and sewed up so easily I decided to make some more. This time I used this triangle print that also had some deer in the print. I made the briefs in the next bigger size and I used the pattern for the tank top from the Little One Yard Wonder Book. I think these turned out even cuter than the first set. I like the way the buck ended up on the front of the briefs. I couldn't really plan it that way because I was working with only a half yard of fabric so I had to fit the pieces on there wherever they would fit.
