It’s time for another roundup from the wonderful collection of photos in the Celebrate the Boy Flickr Pool. Please please share yours, too! Today’s theme is…STRIPES! Here’s my second rule when it comes to sewing boy clothes:
I feel like the addition of stripes automatically makes clothing 100% more interesting. Thin stripes, bold stripes, contrast stripes, understated stripes? I love them all. The Show your Stripes Turtleneck is one of many striped tees I’ve made for Elliot (there’re a couple more in this post). They’re always a hit. Striped fabric is pretty easy to find (or make! check out Dana’s DIY-fabric post here!), which is definitely a plus when it come to sewing for boys.

The Geranium Dress sewing pattern has only been around since just before Christmas, so I’m really amazed at the number of beautiful little dresses that you’ve already posted in the flickr pools. Check out these cuties!
I love the contrast in on these two. See how the polkadot lining is such a playful compliment to the elephants on the bodice? And the green flutter sleeves in the middle make a great trim for the whimsical little girls in the print.
And what little girl doesn’t need a polkadot dress? I ask you.
These two are just…
Some of you have let your imaginations run wild with amazing modifications, like this pink hoodie blogged by beginwithb.
Look at this adorable dress!!! Notes from Monica are here.
It’s great to see all these kiddos romping around in their hand-made tees!
Just popping in from Texas today to show off a few lovelies from the photo pools! The Washi Dress Photo Pool is overflowing with awesome renditions of the Washi Dress sewing pattern. Here’s a selection from a few of you who have opted to make the tunic version of the dress. By shortening the skirt, it becomes a versatile top that’s flattering to a great range of figures.
I was most impressed by how well these tunics fit all these ladies. Each clearly took the time and attention to tailor their Washis to fit their own proportions…
The first photo is perfectly whimsical (upper left). I love it when it’s so clear that a kid is comfortable just dancing on a wall in her dress! The colors look amazing against the flower garden in the background. Also: POCKETS!? So great.
Cherie was inspired by the film Fantastic Mr. Fox in her take on this pattern for the Film Petit series (lower left). If you want to see…
I can’t tell you how much fun it is to watch your Washi Dresses pop up in the Washi Dress photo pool. It’s been just over a month since I released the pattern and WOW you have been doing so many fun things with this pattern. There’s scoop-neck versions, classic versions, facings-on-the-outside versions (which is actually what I had in mind when I first designed this dress, so that’s fun to see!), sleeves, and more. Enough talk, let’s take a look some of the Washi loveliness you’ve been dreaming up…
My Elliot starts kindergarten next week. WAAAAAH! Unbelieveable. With back-to-school season here, I thought we should take a peek at all the great backpacks that people have been making with my Toddler Backpack pattern. The original pattern was intended for preschool-aged children, 2-5ish (hence the name, “toddler”), but has since been updated to include easy instructions for enlarging it for a school-aged child so it can accommodate the normal 8.5×11″ sized notebooks and handouts and whatnot. At the top of my current To Sew List is a school-sized one for E. Only time will tell if this backpack actually materializes by the first day of kindergarten or not.
Hey everyone, it’s time for a totally awesome photo roundup! Here’s just a small sampling of what you have been making, via the Rae Made Me Do It Flickr pool:
Lots of great Flashback Tee variations have been popping up, including many that are short-sleeved. If you haven’t seen my tutorial on how to turn the Flashback Tee into a short-sleeved tee, be sure to check it out. And you also absolutely must check out this tutorial on how…
Here’s another fantastic way for your boy to take his toys along to the restaurant, park, or grandma’s, a folding playmat bag. This cute playmat has buildings and streets and features a storage pocket, a strap…
I love looking at the Celebrate the Boy photo pool. I lose hours looking around at all the great stuff you guys are making for the boys in your life. After last week’s dragon slipper tutorial and this week’s monsters I started looking for some monsters and dinosaurs and dragons in the pool. Here’s just a few favorites:
1. 1, 2. Perched above the rocky shore, 3. Monster Snow Hat, 4. Monster Baby, Ottobre 1/10, #6, 5. Tissue Monster, 6. dragon sweater, 7. Yo Gabba Gabba Inspired Fleece Appliqués – Muno, 8. Transformers Pillow Tee Monster, 9.…
