Step 1: Define: "Underwear"

Picture of Define:  "Underwear"
"Underwear" in this Instructable is limited to Tasty Pasties (upper) and Smartie Pants (bottom)

Research has uncovered the following...

- Pasties (sing. 'pastie') are adhesive coverings applied to reveal as much breast as possible without being entirely topless.

- a G-string (or gee-string) is a type of underwear that covers the genitals, passes between the buttocks, and is attached to a band around the hips.

While a G-string it can be worn as underwear by both men and women it is not clear as to whether Pasties are limited to just one sex.

To please both sides of the aisle, Tasty Pasties and Smartie Pants have been crafted with the needs of the uni-sex underwearer in mind.

Step 2: Gather Materials

Picture of Gather Materials
Tastie Pasties and Smartie Pants requires:

- 8 oz bag of Conversational Hearts
- 6 oz bag of Smarties Candies
- a dozen soft chewy type of candy (Tootsie Rolls, Starbursts, Taffy)
- Waxed Paper
- Saran Wrap or Baggies
- Rolling Pin
- Cookie Cutter
- Microwave
- Drill with smallest available drill bit
- 9 needles with a thin eye, threaded.

Step 3: Creating the Pastie (sing.) or Pasties (pl.)

Working with no more than 2 piece of chewy candy at a time, unwrap and microwave on a sheet of waxed paper for a maximum of 5-10 seconds.

Gently lift from waxed paper and place softened candy between saran wrap. Roll it out to create a smooth surface about 1/4" thick. Trim out design with cookie cutter and set aside on a sheet of saran wrap.

Repeat process, cutting out several decorations. Scraps can be reheated to form additional decorations

Arrange as desired, warm slightly and place a sheet of saran wrap over your design and slightly flatten so all decorations meld together.

Add a Converational Heart to the center by tacking it on to the pastie with a dab of overheated scrap.

I am so gonna make these for the hubbyman.  Um... yeah, I'll be the one wearing them, not him...
PS they can stick a little too well to skin, so assistance in removal is a good thing.  A little warm water to keep it PG.

If I ever had to eat "underwear", these would be the ones.

WOW!!! This is incredibly original! (If you ever use your model again, you might consider a white background -- but then again, maybe your model wanted to be invisible? I wish I had seen this a week ago -- It would have made a terrific gag (and I mean GAG!) gift for my single female friends. I plan on buying some hearts 90% off after V-Day so they are super stale for next year's project. Who says you can't have fun on Valentine's day if you don't have love???? This is definitely a winning craft!

It refreshing - and sort of scary - to see this streak in you! LOL!
So wrong, lol! Could make for a fun Valentine's Day, though :)

Yeah, I figure not everyone celebrates VD the same way.

Terrific idea as long as your partner isn't on a diet. I would recommend a Brazilian wax as step #1.

Great idea...looking forward to your Instructable on giving yourself a Brazillian wax!
