Trula is here today to share a tutorial for a button fly trouser, a detail that can make garments for boys really special. You’ll find this technique will work with most any boys pant pattern!
I know you’ll love this tutorial for a messenger bag from Vanessa of Punkin Patterns! The grommet and stitching details really make this bag look professional and I think this bag would work for boys of ALL ages!
