Valentine DIY: Embroidered Boxer Shorts

Valentine underwear

I like Valentine’s day to be a little unexpected , a little fun. A simple reminder of how much I love my favorite people. And, well, I think that a pair of embroidered boxer shorts will put a smile on any Valentine’s face. I gave an embroidered pair of white boxers to my husband Peter many years ago and it’s one of the few Valentine gifts we actually still remember.
These are a cinch to make, so no need to panic, there’s plenty of time to make these before February 14!

Embroidered Boxer Shorts

Materials:

DIY Valentine

  • Boxers or briefs? Plaid or plain? (I usually prefer to upcycle my craft supplies, but in this case, definitely new.)
  • Frixion pen or water soluble marker
  • Embroidery floss
  • Needle

To Make:
1- Using a Frixion pen (these marks will erase with the heat of an iron) or a water soluble pen, draw out all kinds of Valentine- inspired hearts, arrows, initials, and symbols of love.

2- Embroider with a simple back stitch (you could certainly get fancy with french knots and lazy daisies, but I fear the recipient may not notice). I used 3 strands of floss and the stitches showed up well.

3- Iron the finished garment (or spritz with water) to remove pen marks, and they are ready for giving.
