This round of Celebrate the BOY has been phenomenally fun! I’ve had a great time sharing this series of posts with you, and getting the chance to collaborate with the ever-talented and amazing Dana over at MADE is always a wonderful experience!!! I hope you’ve enjoyed following along and sewing for your own boys! You’ve posted your projects in our Celebrate the BOY flickr group, and that’s been really cool to watch; so many cool projects and ideas in that group. Feel free to keep adding your projects throughout the year. I love checking in to see what everyone is making!

Here’s a quick look at the clothes I made this year for Elliot:


Seeing everything I made for this series all together in one place is v. satisfying. Just so you know, I didn’t sew and photograph all of this stuff just in the last two weeks (that would be insane!). I worked on most of these in January and early February so that I would have time to blog about them during Celebrate the BOY. I even started planning a little in December, picking out fabrics and such. It’s so fun to plot and plan with Dana and decide how and when things will run (even if I *say* I want to just post every other day but then inevitably end up posting daily. Oops! It helps that Dana is a fellow overachiever…YAY!).

Here are the links to each individual post:

    Thank you to you and Dana! I had a blast, and my son’s wardrobe is so much better off for it! I lost some steam in week 2, but I learned a bunch and feel inspired to try some new projects. You and Dana rocked it — I’m sure it was so much work. Thank you!!
