Fight the hungry undies!


Since my 2.5 year old niece has been solely in undies for a while now her mother (my sister) and I have noticed that wedgies seem to be a pretty regular occurrence. 

Exhibit A

Now these aren't cheap undies, just regular store bought ones.

After seeing a blog post on the So Zo blog about some awesome undies she saw in berlin like these:

They looked so cute and colourful and VERY comfy. So I felt inspired to replicate something similar for little S. I have ordered some organic australian made jersey to use for the front and back piece and will use some 4-way-stretch interlock for around the hips and legs that will them feel more like comfy yoga pants then tight undies. 

Here is my first attempt at self drafted undies.

Very cute and according to S, very comfy. Clearly as here she is not wearing anything else! The best bonus though, no wedgies!

I will leave you with this final comparison. 

Tutorial for self drafting kids undies coming soon... As soon as I finish classes for the semester.

I am now back from my holiday in Darwin visiting family. Here are some picture updates

It was raining when we flew out of Brisbane.

 We had a great time on an Adelaide river cruise
seeing some wild crocs jump (this big guy was 5m)

 We went to crocosaurus,

and hung out with some cool crocs.

And lizards.

And baby turtles (Ashlee's favourite)

Some top-deck snakes.

It was a great week away with lots of quality time with family and our little niece.

SPECIAL UPDATE! We got home and picked up our little baby Geo. He is a fantastic little guy. We are still getting used to the new routine and sleepless nights (good practice for when we have a really baby). More photos to come!
