Another blast from the past, 2007, that was two years after our site had started.  On the former OHC site, this panty tutorial was visited more than 200,000 times.  So we thought it would be a good idea to put it back up again. They are still as fun today as they were then.

These are very simple and easy to make…. They will take you less than an hour if you are already a seamstress.  If not, they should not take you more than about an hour.

2. Take a pair of panties that fit you and draft a pattern (one piece as in the photo below) onto a piece of baking paper.

3. Pin your pattern onto the tshirt material and cut it out (no seam allowance is needed).

4. Cut out an extra piece of tshirt material in the shape of the crotch of the panties.

5. Pin the crotch piece onto the panty piece, wrong sides facing.  Sew the crotch piece onto the panty piece with two rows of zigzag stitching (as in the photo below).

6. Start at one corner and sew the underwear elastic onto the panty piece using the zigzag stitch.  Be careful not to pull the elastic tight, just hold it gently as you sew.

7. When you arrive at a corner, fold the elastic, pivot the needle and continue to sew.

8. Continue to sew until the elastic is sewn onto all edges of the panty piece.

9. Cut four pieces of ribbon and sew them with the machine onto each corner of the panties.

10. Tie ribbons into two bows.

11. If you would like to add the heart, cut out a heart shape and sew it to the outside of the crotch of the panties.

These panties make great gifts for Hen’s nights or girlfriends in needs of some fun. They are also great fun to make in groups as they can be produced quite quickly.
