|I like to sew children's elastic waist shorts, but it's not always easy for them (or me) to tell front from back. Sure, I could sew in one of my garment labels, but labels can irritate tender skin.
When my now 10 yr old son was little, I used the M memory of my trusty Pfaff 7570 to store the letters 'B-A-C-K'. Tonight, I made a pair for my 4 yr. old stepgrandson and found the letters still there. If only my memory worked as well!
It's sewn to the inside casing allowance before casing is turned down. In addition, the child learns to recognize the word 'back'.
Another idea is to sew one non-hoop embroidery motif to the back like this elephant. Photo blurred but you get the idea. I also added the elephant to the lower pocket area. Looks a little like a designer logo.
