I found a cloth pull up training pants tutorial on youtube *Updated with pics in #16*

I haven't been to "these parts" in a while, been busy doing photography and had to devote most of my time to that and have had little time to sew...BUT my youngest has been interested in potty learning and wants undies somethin' fierce, he is just not quite ready for big boy undies yet and I dread buying pull ups...I first searched here for patterns and didn't really find what I was looking for...the "Antsy Pants" really look the most like pull ups to me so I was looking for something like that, knowing I can whip it up likidy split! While on youtube I stumbled upon a gal who loaded a 4 part tutorial on how to make a cloth pull up...and this is definitely for you visual learners...she records every step and explains it all very well...I think I am going to make mine a pocket version when I make mine, (I may even use some cotton knit at the sides instead of the elastic and gathering elastic since knit has good stretch to it and I can find an old Tshirt to make that even easier) but this gives the general idea and measurements for a 2-3T

at the end of each video she has a link to the next video, there are 4 total
here's part one to get you started and just follow the links at the end to get to the other parts...

forgive me if someone else has already posted this, but I did search the craft section before posting and pretty sue it hasn't been posted...

I also found this, although it is not a tutorial it is a simple project...store bought undies with sewn in layers and even PUL on the bottom of the sewn in soaker to help against leaks!

Tip: don't use Joann cheap clear elastic! Most of mine ripped right off when I pulled on them to sew

Tomarrow's project? Dig through all my sewing tupperwares and find the REAL lastin!
