Favorite Tutorials ~ Clothes for Boys

on August 17 | in Sewing Inspiration | by | with 37 Comments

It’s been a long time since our last Boy Clothes Tutorial Round-Up for Kids’ Clothes Month in 2007! Ellen from the long thread helped us find some current favorites to share with you today. A lot of these would be perfect for little girls too, but we’ll also share a separate series of tutorials for girls tomorrow. Tell us about your favorite tutorial for boys in the comments. What did we miss?!

Slim Slacks by Carrie from This Mama Makes Stuff
Simple Belt for Kids by Nikki from You SEW Girl
Pieced T-Shirt by Charity from Indietutes
Perfect for boys or girls (obviously!).
Toddler Scarf by Juju from Chickpea Sewing Studio
Perfectly adaptable to any age!
Tie Shirts by Emily from saltwater kids
Boy’s Sunhat by Rachel from Clean ~ Lusa Organics
90-Minute Shirt by Dana from Made

We think the number of excellent boy-related clothing tutorials nearly doubled last February with Made by Rae and Made‘s Celebrate the Boy series. You’ll also want to check out all of the “sewn for our boys” goodness in the Flickr pool for some inspiration. Don’t miss it!
