Peekaboo Bum Pants Tutorial

Peekaboo Bum Pants Tutorial

Who doesn’t love an epic cloth diaper? My idea for Peekaboo Bum Pants started when I fell in love with all the pretty cloth diaper prints. My daughter was born in October, so leaving her in just a diaper all winter wasn’t an option. I saw someone on Facebook make a post about the idea of these pants, then decided it was the perfect solution for us. After many trial runs and failed attempts I believe I have found the perfect hack to any ‘Bum Pants’ pattern.

Things you will need:

  • Ruler
  • Sewing Machine
  • Scissors
  • Favorite ‘Grow With Me Bum Pants’ pattern
  • Piece of paper
  • Fabric
  • Fabric Marker

Step 1:

Instead of cutting one front and one back of your pants pattern, cut 2 fronts.

Step 2:

Find something round that is approximately 4″ across. I found a small food container was the perfect size. If you do not have anything this size you can cut a 4″ circle out of paper. Center and trace the circle on one of your ‘pant fronts’, this will now be the back piece.

Step 3:

Cut about 1/4″ inside your circle.

Step 4:

Zigzag stitch all the way around the circle. It may look kind of floppy at this point, but that is good!

Step 5:

Fold over the edge of your circle 1/4″ towards the inside of the pants and straight stitch all the way around the circle.

Step 6:

Finish your pants by following the rest of your pattern.

Note: DO NOT use the ‘Bum Circle’ pattern piece as the circle for this tutorial. It is much larger than needed and will not work. Photo for reference.

Note: If you are doing the smaller sizes of pants I would size down the circle by 1″
