In celebration of a Packer playoff win, I sewed up a football tee for my little guy. You can use this tutorial to add a fun stripe detail to any of your little guy’s (or girl’s) shirts. Depending on the application, you can use it to make something more sporty or preppy, whatever your preference.
I FINALLY ordered a copy of Sewing for Boys. It was a little like Christmas morning when it got here. I sewed up this shirt using the Raw Edge Raglan pattern size 4/5.
A common boy sewing complaint (and I’ve made it too) is that boy sewing is just so much more involved then girl sewing. You can whip up a cute girl’s dress in no time, but boy sewing involves more waistbands and other techniques without as much wow factor at the end. May I suggest to you the raglan tee? The sewing technique is very similar to a girl’s peasant dress. It sews up just as fast and is really easy to add fun details to.
