Sew You Had a Boy

Sewing Projects for Boys

 

We’re very excited to be launching a series of posts for 2013 focusing on Sewing for Boys!

Join us on the first Thursday of the month for a guest post/special feature of a blog we’ve found inspiring boy sewing on.

The second Thursday of the month will feature a pattern review- because, let’s face it, great boy patterns are hard to find!

And the third Thursday of the month, come by for a fun boy tutorial! We will share a free pattern or technique to add something great to your little guy’s closet.
