I’ve heard you say it! “We need BOY stuff!” There are so many adorable patterns out there for little girls, but where are the cool, fun, adorable projects to make for the little MEN in our lives?
If you’ve ever thought, yelled, or angrily typed anything like what I’ve written above, this book really IS what you need! There are hats, shirts, pants, pjs, a really cute coat, and lots more, too.
Shelly Figureoa and Karen LePage, the designers behind Patterns by Figgy’s offer up a fabulous collection of full outfits for boys ages newborn to 7. Readers will delight in the fresh, modern styling that is the signature of Patterns by Figgys. In addition to contemporary styling, readers will also find that every piece of clothing in the photos is a pattern from the book. Aside from footwear, no commercially produced clothing appears in the photos.
24 sewing projects are offered in 6 themed chapters which cover all the seasons of the year, and include fun travel accessories and toys.
Most of the projects included in the book are garments. Included in the book are full-sized sewing patterns with detailed, illustrated instructions for each project. Sewing for Boys offers a solid foundation of garments; constructed to be comfortable as worn and durable to be handed down in the future.
