Toddler Potty Training Pants Sewing Tutorial and Free Pattern in Three Sizes


The Pattern

This pattern comes in three sizes. The small size fits approximately 18-24 months.

 The medium is approximately a 2T/3T. It is about 1 inch wider through the side panels and about ½” taller than the 18 month size.

 The large size is approximately 3T/4T. It is 1” wider through the side panels and 1” wider through the tummy panel (a total of 2” wider), 1” taller, and the soaker pad is wider and taller than the 18 month size. The width between the legs is the same on all sizes as well as the height of the waistbands and leg bands.

The sizes correspond to my children’s trainers and underwear that I have purchased from the store.

Honey Whole Wheat Sugar Cookies {recipe} with No Sugar

I have gestational diabetes (which I control only with diet) when I am pregnant and my four year old kept begging me for "roll out cookies" (he loves using the cookie cutters to cut out cookies). I transformed my unhealthy sugar laiden sugar cookie recipe into a whole food healthy version. And my family actually prefers this new honey whole wheat sugar cookies; they actually have flavor instead of just being "sweet" like regular sugar cookies! Also, I can have a couple without my blood sugar going too high. Both are wins in my book so I thought I would share the recipe with you.
