Fab Finds Friday- Sewing for Boys

12 Jul

I don’t often find the time  to sew, I would like to sew more so that I can improve, but other things just get in the way.

Maybe if I had girls I would sew more as there are so many sweet little dresses, skirts, accessories and knick knacks that you can make for a girl. Often I am not inspired by patterns available for boys. This Friday I am dedicating the post to some great sewing ideas I have found and would actually make for boys!

1. Boys Cargo Pants from Shwin&Shwin

These cargos are just great, so many pockets and the tutorial is so simple and easy to follow. While you are there have a look around, there are many wonderful sewing ideas for kids!

2. Car Play Mat

Car Play MatThis is from the book Sewing for Boys: 24 Projects to Create a Handmade Wardrobebut I think it would be quite possible to make this without a pattern.

3. Dino Tails from Running with Scissors

Another great tutorial. What little boy doesn’t love dinos!

4. Sailboat Pants from Oliver + S.

These guys make great kids patterns, often with a cute vintage feel. I love the button detail of these pants.

5. Upcycled Pyjamas from Mens shirt from Prudent Baby

I love that these are upcycled, and I love the skinny leg on them.

Has this inspired you to run to the sewing machine? I think I will be doing some more sewing for the Minimen in the future after seeing these Fab Finds!

    this is great! I used to sew for my boys so they could have interesting colorful clothes. They are grown now (well, almost) and both still wear lot’s of colors and neat stuff. Keep up the good work:)
