Finding Nemo Swimsuit trunks for Little Bear 2014 by Speattle
I am on a swim suit bender I guess. I made another boy suit today for
my one and only grandson. This is Kwik Sew 2512 (which I believe is
OOP). The I made the 1T in width, but the 2T in length as he is skinny
and tall. The fabric is a poly/cotton blend. I found it on a clearance
table for $3.95 a yard and I only bought a half yard. And bonus it is 60
inches wide, so I have a LOT to make more of these.
The pattern calls for lining and I used just a basic knit white
swimsuit lining. This is the first time I’ve made a lined swimsuit and
it was actually very easy.
Because the trunks were so plain, I used my embroidery machine to put
a little “Finding Nemo” image on the front. He loves all kinds of fish,
so I think it will be a hit.
Update: They fit him well! He wore them to the splash park today on the 4th of July!
