2. Now lay your identical pieces back on top of one another, pin and sew together the front and back pieces to create the front and back pieces of your boxers.




3. Now put your two pieces right sides on top of one another and sew your sides together.



4. Next, attach the crotch making sure to fold down the seam line when you're sewing.



5. Then turn your boxers right side out and add a seam to the leg-hole.



6. Now for the front flap, you're going to fold it over evenly and sew down both sides. Then take the flap from the other side and add a simple hem down its side.




7. One done, tuck it under and connect both pieces on the bottom and the top.





8. Next, you'll want to create a casing for your elastic. Do this by using the elastic as a guide around the waist of your shorts. Make sure you line up your front flaps evenly and sew together.



9. Now feed your elastic through the front of the boxers by using a bobby pin or safety pin. Sew the ends of your elastic together and tuck it into the casing.



10. Last, you'll sew closed your casing, add your Anti-valentine's day stencil and you're ready to rock! (Check our Extras page for more anti-valentine's day and other stencils)
