Captain Underpants!!!

Have you read these books?



I must admit that I've read one... I just had to see what the rage was about... and they are REALLY funny + I LOVE kids books.

Some of my favorite authors:
Roald Dahl
Judy Blume
J.K. Rowling- I just PPVed The Half Blood Prince last night!
and a new favorite.... Rick Riordan
I've only read about half of the first Percy Jackson book, but I LOVE it and I'm so thrilled it's gonna be a movie!

Anyways.... pretty much everyone in my family is an avid reader (my Mom COULD NOT keep me in enough books when I was a kid- everyone thought I was such a nerd in middle school... especially when I was carrying around BIG books like 'Gone with the Wind') hahhahahha.... my husband still thinks I'm a nerd for how much I read.

well, my cousin, Ty, loves this series- Captain Underpants... I mean- LOVES!
So, my cousin asked me to make him some Captain Underpants pajamas for Christmas.
It was one of only three things he asked for and he's 9- so the pressure was on.

I wanted to make them as literal as possible, so I took this picture from the book and went for it. I'm so happy with how they came out. I wish I had a better picture- but this is all I've got.




I just used the Easy Fit Pants Pattern from YCMT for the pants and cut out the shape of the undies. Then took that as a pattern, added seam allowances, and cut that out of the white. I also added bias strips of the white to make the seams of the undies and hand embroidered the black lines on the undies. A flesh colored flannel for the shirt and little black buttons for the nipples... ha... one of Ty's favorite parts and then made the little cape. I got some help from Ashley on how to transfer the image to the fabric and she suggested some iron on transfers. So that's what I did- printed off the picture of the book and ironed it on to the cape- VIOLA- Captain Underpants P.J's.

I made the Rock Star ones for my other cousin Tanner, who plays the guitar and loves to sing. It wasn't nearly as fun to make as Ty's, but I like how it turned out and so did Tanner.





Again, I used the easy fit pants and bought the RTW shirt from Wal-Mart. I just cut out and wonder undered the letters the old fashioned way and then embroidered the microphone with this file from Planet Applique. I love how the microphone turned out! The Rock Star design was a freebie from sewforum from a member in the Netherlands.

And here they are in action on Christmas morning!





Aren't my cousins from Georgia cute!
