Potty Training Panties

These potty training panties have been a life saver over the past 2 weeks. My daughter June all of a sudden decided to use the potty! I had NO idea how to start or how to go about it, she just did it on her own! I am truly blessed. I had heard all about accidents and having to clean the "puddles" off your carpet and such. But I didn't want that to happen! YUCK! So I made these potty training "big girl" panties! A small bit of thin but strong batting and a plastic liner on the bottom to collect spills. They have been AMAZING! She has only had 1 accident and they worked like a charm! If you are potty training or know someone who is, tell them about these! They literally save you from A LOT of cleaning and oopsies! And best yet, they only cost me $6 total, panties and material! Talk about a good price as opposed to pull ups! 


The supplies: 5 Pairs of panties, 1/4 yard thin/strong "quilt" batting, and 1/4 yard decorative plastic like for table cloths. 


Grab a piece of paper to make your pattern.


Trace out the middle and bottom of the panties (like so) to make the accurate measurements - all panties are different.


It should look similar to a  feminine hygiene pad


Trace the pattern with a pencil onto the batting. I kept the batting folded so it was doubled. Then cut out the double layer.


Here is 5 doubled batting "inserts" ready to be sewn.


Do the same to the plastic liner- Trace with the paper pattern you made, and cut out.
Pin to the position you want on the panties and sew. 
* I had to cut down the batting a little bit to keep the plastic overlapping it. 


All sewn and ready to catch any accidents!

  2. Great idea! I wonder if they will work for older kids with bedwetting. I'll have to try and find out!

  3. Love this idea! I usually put panties under pull-ups so I don't have a mess, but they still feel the wetness and want to go in the potty. These are so much better! Thanks for sharing. Hope to see you at True Aim!

  7. A corset is a garment worn to hold and shape the torso into a desired form for aesthetic or medical purposes (either for the length of sporting this item, or with a a lot of lasting result). Both men and women are known to wear corsets, though ladies are more common wearers. Want to be the foremost charming lady with horny body line? This fashion corset will facilitate your create a stunning bust and thin waist.
