Learn how to make boy’s swim trunks using two unique Simplicity sewing patterns and the Cricut Maker. The cutting machine cuts your summer sewing project!
Summer is coming, and it’s time to think about swimsuits! I love sewing swimsuits for both boys and girls.
SUPPLIES NEEDED: – board short fabric – swimsuit lining – cricut maker – cricut washable fabric pen
Before you get started and gather all your supplies check sizing and measurements on the pattern to make sure it will fit your child.
After measuring to make sure the pattern will fit, prepare the pieces of fabric by cutting them to the size recommended in the instructions.
Set up your Cricut Maker with your phone or computer. Place the first piece of fabric face down on the 12×24 fabric cutting mat.
Use the Cricut Maker to cut out all the pieces. You should have two waistband pieces, two fronts, two backs, and two lining pieces.
With right sides together and a straight stitch sew the inseams of the front and back pieces together. Finish the edges.
