Sewing For Boys ~ Review

on September 5 | in Products | by | with 741 Comments

This giveaway is now closed. Thanks!

Shelly Figueroa and Karen LePage, co-owners of the ever-popular Patterns by Figgy’s sewing patterns, created the book I’ve been wishing for ever since my son was born almost six years ago! Their new Sewing For Boys has 24 projects to create a handmade wardrobe, with full-size patterns included for all of the clothing pieces. Everything is in here, from pants and pajamas to jackets, shirts and rompers for the little guys. Sizing goes from three months to seven years, and the clothes take you through all of the seasons (Swim shorts? Check! Coat? Check!)

My son and I eagerly looked through the book when it arrived and he had a huge wish list by the time we were done. I, too, want to make every piece of clothing in the book. Really. Every clothing pattern in the book. They’re all solid designs– Classic, with well thought-out details and clean lines.

Two-In-One Jacket + Little Heartbreaker Pants on the left, Just-Like-Dad Flannel Robe on the right.

Shelly and Karen give great tips throughout the pattern instructions, and construction is easy. As mentioned in the book introduction, while the patterns are categorized by difficulty anyone can sew the items in the book; the patterns are highly accessible and a pleasure to sew.

Short Sleeve Raglan Tee (with Long Sleeves) + Treasure Pocket Pants on the left,
Luka Hoodie + Little Heartbreaker Pants on the right.

Two points I want to emphasize: I really feel the book is a tremendous value. You get quality, full-size patterns to sew up an entire wardrobe appropriate year-round for at least seven years! Also, the book, while a huge BIG deal for those of us who love to sew for the boys in our life, is also completely appropriate for little girls. My daughter is almost one and her wardrobe will benefit for years from this book! I see lots of cute rompers, hoodies, pants and raglan tees in our future.

Goodnight, Sweetheart PJs on the left,
Pauley’s Pullover, Kickin’ Back Sweats + Race Car Playmat on the right.

For now though top on my son’s list was the Two-In-One Jacket (next up: Just-Like-Dad Flannel Robe and Goodnight, Sweetheart PJs for a cozy fall). We got the book right before a packed weekend but with a great pattern and Shelly and Karen’s clear instructions the jacket only took about three hours to cut, sew and model!

I was intimidated by welt pockets but they seemed simple with the guidance in the book (and my son and I felt like they “made” the jacket).

Welt pocket? No problem!

Our version has Dad’s old, felted sweater as the lining and patch pockets on the inside, reused from Grandpa’s old corduroy shirt. Buttons from Great-Great-Grandma’s stash give the jacket an extra little touch of family love. With his name sewn inside he’s ready to greet kindergarten in style.

Ready for fall with some handmade goodness to keep him warm at recess.

    Is it too late to get in on this contest?? I have a 3-year-old son and he LOVES when I sew things for him, but every book I own seems to have mostly girl things. My daughter is cool with that, of course. I would LOVE to have a book of boy basics!! If it’s too late to enter, I understand. πŸ™‚

  28. Julia says:

    I’m in love with this book because when I was five months pregnant and found out I was having a boy, I scoured book stores looking for books full of things to knit, crochet, and sew for him. Unfortunately every time I found something cute it was in the middle of a book with a 2-1 or higher ratio of girl patterns to boy’s. While boy clothes can look cute on girls it doesn’t work the other way around so often.

  29. Kristina says:

    Thanks for brining this book to my attention. I’d love to try these with my little guy!

  30. Karin says:

    I’ve been waiting for a book like this since my son, Roman, was born almost 9 months ago. I can’t WAIT to sew some cute things for him!!!

  31. S J says:

    This book would be wonderful for my grandbabies! It is so hard to find (and afford) handsome patterns for boys of various sizes. This book would fit the bill!

  32. Kate H says:

    I am newish to sewing and just love trying to make stuff for my son. For my first project, I made him some PJ pants which he now wears to preschool so proudly and tells the world that I made them for him. Can’t wait to make some more things for him and would love a copy of this inspiring new book to help me on my way to my next project.

  33. Maggie says:

    I’m so excited for this book!! I have two boys, 6 and 4, as well as my 2yr old nephew. With so many cute patterns out for girls, this book is long overdue. I can’t wait to dig in and make some cool boy clothes!

  34. Jamie says:

    I can’t wait to get this book! I have three awesome boys to sew for!

  35. Stacy says:

    Wow! That book looks awesome! It is so great to get some nice patterns for the boys in our lives! It is so hard to find patterns to sew for my son that he usually ends up getting the short end of the stick. I am definintely going to invest in this book and make him something cute!

  36. I have heard so many positive comments about this book, it is so highly anticipated!

  37. Danella says:

    The patterns look like a lot of fun. I’d be sewing for my three boys.

  38. Sharon says:

    I have TWO little boys I would sew for, especially if it was fast, easy, and cute. I hate all the store clothes for boys with all the skulls, pirates, flames, etc. on them.

  39. tierraazul says:

    Many things to try…as my son is six I had better get started!

  40. Jen V says:

    Yes! I did not know that this book existed. As a sewist and mama to two sweet boys, I am THRILLED. I can’t wait to get a copy, one way or another.

  41. wendy says:

    this looks like an oasis of great boy patterns in a desert of sweet girl clothes.

  42. ~salix~ says:

    I would love this book! More projects to sew for my little Swedish nephews…

  43. EmilyB says:

    With 3 boys this is the book for us! It is hard to find sewing projects just for boys, so it is wonderful to see a book dedicated just to them!

  44. I have two girls who I sew for all the time, but never for my Godson. This book would be such an inspiration to sew for him. He turned 5 last month. Would love to win a copy. Allisen

  45. amy dame says:

    my godson is three and a half, and when he was a baby, i loved sewing for him, but it’s so much harder to find cute patterns now that he’s a kid size, not a toddler size! this book looks so fantastic, i’m itching to get my hands on a copy.

    thanks so much for the chance to win!

  46. Laura Griffin says:

    This book looks awesome! Would love to sew these for my sweetie, just in time for the change in seasons, too!

  47. Susan says:

    My son loves me to sew outfits for him. He would enjoy looking through this as much as I would. Us please.

  48. Megan Harkins says:

    I would LOVE this book so I could sew some things for our son. I’m pretty new to sewing and have mainly been sewing things for our daughter, 4, but I’m really trying to find some ideas for things to make our son, 3 (who is feeling a little left out)

  49. Cat says:

    I am having a boy in a little over a month and would love to be able to sew some stuff for him!

  50. Susan says:

    I have been soooo waiting for this book! I have two boys, one is 2 and the other is nearly five and I love to be creative with my sewing for them but it is sometimes frustrating to see so many girl ideas. At last a book dedicated to boys!! As they truely deserve! Susan

  51. I’d love to win…it would be perfect for my nephews

  52. Stephanie says:

    I will be using the book to sew for Oscar. He is almost 2 1/2. Thanks.

  53. Janet K says:

    I’d love to sew something special for my awesome boy! Like that coat – though I don’t have any apparel sewing experience, so hopefully the book will lead me through some of it!

  54. Erica says:

    I love sewing for boys, and I am so excited that there is a whole book about sewing for boys now!

  55. Sharon says:

    Oh Yippee!! A book for boys! All in one package, this is great!

  56. Ashley says:

    I was actually reading a review on this book yesterday. My first thought was I have to get this for my boys! I have two boys almost 3 and 1. I love the 2 in 1 Jacket and the fact that the book carries them tgrough 7 years old! I also love that is full of cute boy patterns. Thanks for a chance to win this awesome book! Fingers crossed!!

  57. Melissa Evans says:

    I really need to try the jacket pattern. This book is much needed!

  58. Gretchen says:

    Those pants are too sweet! With two little boys to clothe, I’m so over the sweats they wear everyday!! Would be great to have some crafty inspiration.

  59. Liz says:

    Not sure if I’m too late for this but I’m having a boy and couldn’t be more excited to see a book like this!!

  60. Lindsey Herring says:

    I babysit this adorable baby boy during the week. He is ten days older than my little girl. I have had the hardest time finding things to make for boys and this would be PERFECT! His mother always comments on my daughter clothes and really wants me to make him some but being a mother of only a daughter it is hard to get ideas!

  61. Lynnette says:

    It is SO hard to find patterns – especially cool patterns – for little boys. My 2-1/2 year old would love some new clothes sewn by Mama.

  62. Claire says:

    This book looks great and just what I would love to have, just going on maternity leave, my baby boy is due next week. I have recently got out my sewing machine and have been looking for patterns for my new baby boy and my lovely three year old boy. It would be so lovely to make some fab clothes for my boys on a budget, there is so much out there for girls but it feels that sometimes little boys are short changed. Plus I have a real little trend setter in my three year old, the latest is wearing everything back to front- wonder if it will catch on x

  63. Consuelo says:

    Wish this book had come out 7 years ago as my boy is seven right now. I think it would still be used though.

  64. Lorie says:

    I would sew for my two busy boys. They treasure everything I sew for them, and I need new ideas. GREAT book!

  65. Keitha says:

    PICK ME! This book is a breath of fresh air! Oh the things I could create for my son, my nephews and special orders! Isn’t that coat a dream?!!!

  66. Heather F says:

    I have two little boy cousins (one is 3 years and the other is almost 2 months) and a friend who just had a little boy today and I would love to make them some of the adorable things in this book! Thanks so much for the chance to win it!!

  67. Tara says:

    We would spring up to clouds because of happiness if we could win this great book

  68. I would love to win this book. My son gets left out when it comes to sewing things. This would definately make it fun to sew up some cute things he would love.

  69. Tonya says:

    I started sewing when my boys were getting ‘too big’ for Mama made. This book could have changed that!! I have a little foster son who I would LOVE to make all sorts of wonderful items for! Thanks for this opportunity

  70. christy stephenson says:

    Finally sewing projects for boys!!! It is soooooo hard to find cute boys clothes and patterns!!! Would live to win this book!!!

  71. Amy says:

    wow!! i’d love to win! i had been eyeing various patterns for my son, but seeing your version of that coat put me over the edge! LOVE it! (in fact i’m “pinning” it!) and i’ve got just the right wool skirt that wants to be reimagined as a toasty car coat. thanks for the chance!

  72. Georgia says:

    I grew up with only girls in my family, and my first born is a boy! That was a surprise. πŸ™‚ I would love to make him some cutie patootie clothes!

  73. Michelle says:

    i would love to win a copy! little boys can be SO hard to sew for!

  74. Fiona says:

    I sewed little things for my boy when he was tiny, but lately it has been a challenge to find suitable patterns. He is nearly three and not wearing very much Mama-made stuff lately, which makes me sad. We are about to move into our first house and I will have a dedicated crafty-sewing room, which I am thrilled about. It would be fab to have a book of inspiring projects for the wee man to christen my crafty space with!

  75. Jesse says:

    This looks like such a fantastic resource for sewing for little boys. I have two boys aged 3 and 6 years old and maybe one more on the way (could be a girl yet). It would be super to stretch my repertoire with some solid patterns for little guys.

  76. keeley says:

    I just gave birth to my third son(no girls), and I keep seeing cute things to sew for girls, but not boys. This would be great!!

  77. Asmita says:

    The book looks lovely. I am still a beginner sewist and this would be right up my alley. I hope i win!

  78. carole whitridge says:

    what a fabulous book – finally. I hope there are more to come!

  79. Wendy says:

    I’d love to use this book to help me in sewing for my 3yo nephew. I make clothes for his 18mo sister fairly often, and he ends up feeling left out.

  80. Marva McKinney says:

    I have 3 grown boys and I wish I had this book when they were young. I love the pants pattern and want to make it for my granddaughter.

  81. Jennifer DeVries says:

    Cool! I need this! I have a son now for whom I’d love to sew, plus two soon to be step-nephews!

  82. Brandy says:

    I have two little boys (1 and 2 yrs) and I would love to make them cute boys clothing! The book looks awesome and would love to get my hands on a copy!

  83. Amanda McEachern says:

    I am so excited about this book. I definitley need it to sew for two boys, two nephews and likely another nephew (given our family’s track record for boys) due soon! Thanks

  84. Julie Rivera says:

    I love have an entire book dedicated to BOYS! I have three boys 6,7,8.

  85. N. Perez says:

    This is amazing and highly needed. I find so much resources for sewing for girls and then a pattern or two for boys shirts and pants. I just wasn’t fair! I would so love to find some cute patterns to sew for my five-year-old handsome boy.

  86. Keri says:

    I would sew something for my son who loves to see what I make/sew/knit, but often says “mom, you make a lot of things for girls….how about you make something for me?” this would be awesome!


  87. Donna S. says:

    Would love this book to sew some things for my 2 1/2 yr old grandson!!

  88. casandra says:

    I am so happy to see a book all about boys. It is about time. I would love to have a copy of this book. I’d sew for my seven year old son. It’s always good to find new things to make for him.

  89. Renee says:

    I’d love love love to have this book. My 4 year old has been wearing Mommy creations for 2 years now. He prefers them over the store bought. He tells people Mommy made it! The button up looks great to me. I’ve been wanting to learn how to make those.

  90. lisap says:

    I have a new baby boy cousin, the first boy in our family in a long time! What great timing (I hope)!

  91. ewebewe says:

    My little man isn’t so little any more but he still thinks it’s cool to have a mom that can make him clothes/things that no one else will have. He is even showing an interest in helping design the next project. I would be ever so happy to have this book.

  92. Kristi says:

    As my husband and I are thinking about starting a family I dream about having a rough and tumble little boy, but have to admit that I would miss dressing a girl in all those cute outfits. With this awesome book, maybe I wouldn’t!

  93. Rachel T. says:

    I’d love to have this book for my son! I see so many great patterns and ideas for girls but not so many for boys.

  94. Shelly says:

    Well, at the moment I’ve only got a girl at home, but I imagine that will change soon enough. Nonetheless, I get tired of sewing girly stuff all the time. I love the boyish jackets, and pants can always be unisex. Not to mention the fact that I have lots of baby showers to attend, for which boy patterns would be very useful!

  95. Gray says:

    I would LOVE to have this book. There is such a shortage of great boys clothing patterns in the world that I’ve just (as a novice) started making my own for my 4 yr old little boy – Ayden. I’m embracing my unemployed status by spending more time and effort on my family and LOVING the results. This book would equip me to make more awesome stuff for my awesome little boy! πŸ™‚

  96. Beth Enniss says:

    I would sew for my two boys, 6 and 2. Boys are the best!

  97. Crystal says:

    I have 3 grandsons and I’m just looking for ideas for pyjamas for them for Christmas. This book looks perfect! Thanks so much for showing your project and sharing the giveaway.

  98. Stephanie says:

    This looks like a great book. I’m expecting my first son in December (after two girls) and I’m happy to see they’re working on great things to sew for boys.

  99. Mary Jo says:

    I have 4 grandsons that actually love anything I make for them.I’ve never used these patterns before but would love to start on any of those projects. The jackets are great. I usually make them all something for Christmas.

  100. Taysha Riggs says:

    I’d make something for my BFF’s twin boys πŸ™‚

  101. Kelli says:

    I have 2 boys to sew for, so this book is right up my alley! I would love to branch out from my boring shorts and pajamas with these inspirational patterns. What a great book!

  102. Carolyn Wood says:

    I would love this to sew for my 2 year old grandson, Arlo.

  103. Mirka says:

    I cant believe there is a book with patterns for boys- Finally! Would love to get my hands on it to start making little things for our upcoming baby. πŸ™‚

  104. Such a terrific book! Can’t wait to make some cool stuff for my friends’ kids! Congrats Shelly!

  105. Nicole says:

    Woohoo. Finally some cool patterns for boys all in one place. I have a little guy who’s wardrobe is definitely in need of updating.

  106. Holly says:

    This book is such a great idea! I started sewing again when I had our daughter because of the abundance of adorable patterns for girls. Our boys (3 of them!) began asking me to sew stuff for them. I’ve done pjs but a book like this would open up a whole new world of sewing for me (for them!).

  107. Kelly M says:

    I have two sons, 2 1/2 & 6 mos. I am so excited for this book. I can only make so many dresses for my friends daughters….I want to make awesome stuff for my boys, too!

  108. Mimi B says:

    I have a little boy incubating as I type this. I am just getting ready to sit down and make him some blankets, burp cloths, and pants. I put this book on my wishlist as soon as I found it!

  109. Kayla says:

    How exciting! I’ve been worried because I’m so used to sewing for my daughter and haven’t found as much to sew for little boys (am expecting in the next few weeks!)This looks perfect πŸ™‚

  110. Shelly says:

    I would sew for my son, would love to win this!

  111. Jens says:

    I’d love to win this book and sew some cute things for my nephew – it’s another book on my wish list now…

  112. Megan says:

    I love the bubble skirt from Figgy! Although as a new sewist, I did find some of the directions a bit vague. But–I managed to figure it out and have made the skirt twice now. It’s so cute!

  113. Juliet says:

    Within a year, four of my friends/family had boys! It’s so hard to find patterns for boys. This book looks amazing!

  114. Joel says:

    I am a dad of two boys! This is the first time I’ve been on your site and obviously the first post I’ve read. I’ve been in contact with the course coordinator @ the local JoAnn’s to try and setup some male oriented sewing 101 classes. Seeing this book, just rekindled my drive to start sewing for my boys! I would first make a pair of pants/trousers with strengthened knees :-). Win or not, I look forward to checking your site regularly!

  115. Kari says:

    Hurrah! I was just lamenting the lack of cool patterns for my boys starting preschool this week! I would promise to try each and every little thing in there. How lovely!

  116. Catherine says:

    I love that this book has stylish clothes that aren’t SOOO trendy. Thanks goodness there aren’t any skulls! πŸ™‚ I’d sew for my two boys and maybe even adapt some of the ideas and sew for my husband. I really really really wish there were more patterns like this for boys. So, I’m joining the throngs of previous praise is saying “Glory, Hallelujah!” for this book.

  117. Kathleen P says:

    Oh, brilliant. My kid needs something to order mom-sewed clothes from.

  118. Marci Girl says:

    Yes, I’m thrilled that there finally is a book just for boys! I would sew for my 3 year old, and for many years to come!

  119. Jen says:

    Thanks for the giveaway! I have a 4 month old boy and would enjoy making some of these projects for him!

  120. Sheryl says:

    I have got to get this book! It looks perfect for my guy! I can always find lots of things to sew for my daughter, but my almost 5 year old seems left out often. And the patterns look awesome!

  121. Finally! Something for my little Bear! My daughter has a closet full of home made clothes and my son (almost 3) is starting to ask for Mommy-Made clothes. I hope I win a copy of the book so my Bear is no longer feels left out…

  122. datcat says:

    While my own boy is too old to benefit from this book, I have two nephews who would benefit for years from it. So far all its been is nappies, nappies, nappies …. but I would love to branch to something no less functional, but still, more stylish.

  123. cindy says:

    Would love to sew for boys!Pick me!

  124. cindy says:

    So cute! Would love to sew for boys!

  125. Bridget says:

    this is great!

  126. Jeanne S says:

    What a beautiful book. It makes me wish my teen boy were still small. Love that jacket and the patient little boy modeling it.

  127. Heather Willis says:

    OMG I would LOVE to win this book. I have a 2 year old son. 2 year old nephew and a 6mo old step-grandson! I could sew my heart out for them!!!

  128. Christie says:

    With 3 boys to sew for, I definitely need all the inspiration I can get; and this book looks like it! Cheers!

  129. Amy says:

    Oops, I mean 5 sisters- I’m one of the girls- 6 girls total πŸ™‚

  130. Amy says:

    I have 8 younger siblings- 3 brothers and 6 sisters… It’s easy to find stuff to sew for little girls, it would be so wonderful to use this book for my little brothers!

  131. charlotte says:

    I’m so happy there is a book of patterns for boys! It is about time! This book looks awesome.

  132. Charlotte says:

    I have two little boys 2.5 and 4, and one big boy 38. I’m sure I could find something for all of them in this great book. THanks for sharing.

  133. Christi says:

    I’m a new mom of a little boy and am trying to learn how to sew… this book would be such a fun motivation for me to practice new skills and learn more…it looks amazing!

  134. Lori says:

    I’m in love with this book already! The world needs more books like this! And *I* need a book like this! thanks for the giveaway!

  135. mauri says:

    I’ve been oogling over this book. I have a 4.5 yr old son I’ve been dying to make more for- this book will definitely have to find it way to my hands! Thanks for the chance to win it! πŸ™‚

  136. Kate says:

    I love to sew for two little guys, although they keep me so busy I can’t fathom completing a project in a mere three hours πŸ™‚ I have never sewn any by Patterns by Figgy but I have had my eye on the Tee for Two and the Dapper Dillenger patterns for quite some time now…but maybe I should just get the book and have so many more to choose from!

  137. Michelle B. says:

    I have been shopping for a coat for my son, but I think that jacket is just what I’ve been looking for. And 3 hours to make it? I can handle that!

  138. Ann says:

    Ooh, ooh! I have been eagerly awaiting this book! We love Figgy’s board short and tee for two patterns. The sizing is perfect for my slim kids! Can’t wait to do some fall sewing for my boy!

  139. Bree says:

    I really thought it was just me having issues finding cute clothing patterns for boys! Reading replys I see I am not the only one so I feel better I would love to win this I have two boys and this book looks so great to start sewing for them!

  140. angelina says:

    oh please pick me.. i have two boys and no books!

  141. Lesley says:

    This looks fabulous! I have a daughter and two boys. I am always sewing for my daughter, but haven’t seen fun patterns like these for boys. My oldest boy would love to have more things that I’ve made. I can tell that many others are feeling the same! πŸ™‚

  142. Tanja says:

    I would love to sew some of these awesome clothes for my style-conscious Kindergartener! Hopefully I could adapt them for my 9-year-old too. I am so glad that someone has finally published a collection of patterns just for boys! Thank you!

  143. Bronwyn says:

    I’d love this book. I have 1 little boy (nearly 2) and another on the way (due November) and there is such a paucity of boy patterns in comparison to the cute girly things (that are just as inspiring). These actually look COOL, rather than a second thought, like a lot of other boy stuff! Yay for Patterns by Figgy! :o)

  144. jen says:

    I would LOVE to have this book! I don’t have a son (yet) but I do have a lot of little boys in my life! I have such a hard time finding cute projects that I can sew for the boys I know as gifties!

  145. Brittney Short says:

    I’m constantly trying to find cute patterns for things for my son-this book would come in very handy!!!

  146. I have two boys 3.5 & 4.5 and would love to be able to make clothes for them that look professional and not have that handmade look.

  147. Morgan says:

    Yaaaayyyy!!! I have two little sons with years of clothing ahead of them. πŸ™‚

  148. auschick says:

    I’d love to create something for my nephew! And I’m sure my future daughter will benefit too πŸ™‚

  149. Genevieve says:

    I would sew stuff for the most remarkable nevvies in the world!


  150. Jill Dorsey says:

    I’m totally psyched about this book. I just gave birth to my son 2 weeks ago and am dying to make him awesome clothes!

  151. caron says:

    Oh, I would love this book! My little guy is the third born after two girls…need I say more. It would be great to have some patterns just for him. Thanks!

  152. Jessica says:

    I couldn’t be happier for this book. As a mom of three boys and one girl! I have countless books of little girl dress patterns, and a few thrown in patterns for boys. I’ve been stuck making boring pj pants over & over again. So excited for this book, I’d love to win!

  153. Jackie says:

    OMG, Would love to win this book. It is just perfect and a big plus is that I have 4 grandson’s from 4 months to 6 yrs old. They would love to receive clothing made by “Mamie” as I would love to sew some up for them. The book looks to have the greatest patterns, something different than the usual pant & shirt!
    Thanks for the chance to win & whoever wins, hope you have fun making “Cool Kids” clothing!

  154. Betsy M says:

    What cute outfits! My little man’s first birthday is coming up soon – this would be a wonderful “birth day” gift for me.

  155. Jeannie says:

    I haven’t sewn kids clothes since mine were small and now I have a darling new grandson to sew for. I’d love to win the book. Thanks for the offer.

  156. Helene says:

    Having three daughters, all my patterns are for girls. I’m going to have a grandchild in January, and if it’s a boy, I’ll be in trouble. This book looks like it’ll provide me with heaps of great little boy sewing. Just what I’m going to need!

  157. Ramona says:

    How wonderful to finally see a book for boys that is so comprehensive. I have many boys in my life from nephews to friends sons that I love to sew for. I’d to win this book.

  158. Tammy says:

    I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of this fab book! I have two boys and am fairly new to sewing, this book is just what I need!

  159. Anya says:

    Finally!!! Some choices for boys. My son is always asking me to make him things and I’m always stumped – there is such a lack of patterns for boys. I love the coat!

  160. Tina T says:

    It’s so great to see a book of really cute and unique patterns for boys! It’s easy to find things for girls, but i’d love to sew some of these for little nephews, and perhaps my own baby– once we find out what we’re having! πŸ™‚ great giveaway!!!

  161. krystina says:

    That jacket is so cute. And I love the pictures I’ve seen for the robe. Very cute stuff that I’d love to make for my little boy!

  162. Emmalina says:

    This book looks wonderful, it is so great to see a book dedicated to boys!

  163. Chelsea says:

    I would love to finally get a chance to sew for all my friend’s kids who of course happen to be all boys.

  164. Carmen says:

    So awesome! It’s true — now that the book is out, I wonder why it took so long for someone to publish a book of boys’ patterns? Hope a men’s one is soon to come!

  165. Jennifer says:

    My husband says we’re only going to have boys (ha!), so this book would be perfect for when that happens.

  166. Penny says:

    25 years ago my Mom complained about the boring little boy patterns available when sewing for her Grandsons. Now I have my own little Grandson (almost one, but already outgrowing 18 month clothes!)… and the selection is still limited. This book looks like it breaks the boring mold!

  167. Barb B says:

    I have two little nephews who I am sure are tired of getting quilts for gifts. Something to add to their wardrobe that is cool and made by Auntie would be fun for all.

  168. Kat M says:

    I am so excited this book exists! You all have no idea–okay your probably do, but it’s been so frustrating seeing all these cute things to make for my neices, but none for my own little man. so excited!

  169. Kris Garst says:

    I can’t begin to tell you how I need this book- I have three boys ages 7, 4, and 4, and I’m always searching for good boy patterns! There’s so much out there for the girls, but the boys have been seriously neglected. I’m glad someone finally saw that gap!

  170. Elizabeth says:

    I love sewing and this book is what I was waiting for. I’m very grateful to Shelley and Karen for creating this book.

  171. bekah Bills says:

    I am SO excited to have a book full of boys clothes (that can equally be used for girls). It’s about time! I’ve got two sons and a couple of daughters that would benefit from this book. I want to make it all! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  172. pamela says:

    What an awesome book! BOYS!!! I have an 8 year old and an 8 month old, i would love to make all these handsome things for!!!

  173. Lynn says:

    This book looks fantastic! Finally something for the boys!

  174. Kerry says:

    Oh wow! Thanks for the giveaway! πŸ™‚

  175. Brooke says:

    I have a little boy and am wanting to sew more for him so this book would be perfect for me!

  176. Rachel says:

    I’ve got 5 boys-bring it on!!

  177. Jennifer says:

    These are such cute clothes. My little boy would look even cuter in that little jacket!

  178. Caren says:

    Oh my! How exciting! I have 2 boys and I’d love to make some “big boy” stuff for them – growing quick and I don’t have many ideas for non-cute-sy stuff….

  179. Keri says:

    I am so excited about this book. I have a 1 year old boy who deserves just as many handmades as his sister got (and still gets!). Thank you!

  180. Mia says:

    This is great! We need more boy resources like this!!!

  181. Senna North says:

    We’re adopting a boy and I’ve always loved sewing girl clothes, but have never been inspired by boy clothes patterns. . . until now!

  182. Mary M. says:

    I can’t wait to get a copy of this book — that jacket is absolutely wonderful! And the photos of other pieces are super-enticing, too.

  183. Jenny says:

    My son (4 1/2), so often slides up to my sewing table to ask quietly, “who are you sewing that for?” The usual answer involves girls (sister, cousins, neighbor’s niece…). I would love for him to cruise on over and be able to answer, “for YOU!”
    He would light up!

  184. Rachel P. says:

    My boys love when I sew for them. This book would be so handy in communicating with them what they want and what I can do for them!

  185. Very nice! I would love to have this book to sew for my 2 lil’ guys! And that jacket is the first project I’d make, it’s awesome!

    Thanks for the chance!

  186. Sarah H says:

    I would love to win this to use for making clothes for my son….he’s the only boy in the house with 4 sisters {;0) Thank you!

  187. Cassie G says:

    I would love to win. I would sew for my four boys. I love to sew and I am very excited to find cute clothing patterns for boys!

  188. Michelle says:

    I would sew for my newphew Caleb – he is only six months old but I sew so slowly that I need to get started on a cute outfit for his 1st birthday! This book will certainly help!

  189. Debbie says:

    I have a sweet little 4 month old grandson. Ever since he was born, I’ve been looking for cute boy patterns. I would love to win this book!

  190. Angela says:

    I love making things for my nephews and son! Recently I just finished a quilt for my nephew using one of your posts! I just love the way it has turned out. Thanks Sew Mama Sew!

  191. Brianna Byman says:

    I’d make my boys(soon to be 3!) clothes out of here!

  192. Katie says:

    I need to make some clothes for my cute little son!!

  193. Leah says:

    My 3 year old son needs the Treasure Pants for his rock and berry collections!

  194. Tam says:

    I have four boys and have been waiting ages for this book. I’ve done capes and pajama pants and would like to branch out.

  195. Amanda says:

    I don’t have any kids of my own, but I love to sew for my nieces, nephews, and friends. Unfortunately, I can never find great projects for the little guys. This would be perfect.

  196. Lennye says:

    Finally, a book for boys! I’ve been wanting to see one of these for a few years.

  197. Becky says:

    I have been waiting and waiting for this book for so long! And I love the small details you mentioned, like the linings and pocket details that make the sewing still interesting. This book is already on my to-buy list, but maybe I’ll luck out and win it instead.

  198. silver says:

    I have two children. My daughter doesn’t care for anything I make her. My son loves when I sew for him. This book would be a fabulous addition to my sewing collection!

  199. lynn says:

    oh my! finally! i am one of those folks who has been waiting for a book like this! i would start at the beginning and sew everything for my boy=it might take some time but i would do it! it’s hard to find a focus on the boy and i am so ready to get my paws on this book! thank you.

  200. Faith says:

    I would love a copy! It sounds fantastic!

  201. Tiff says:

    How exciting!
    I have two little boys who would love some handmade things, as they seem to miss out when I’m making presents for others!

  202. Tong says:

    3 of my friends just had new babies and they are all boys! I think this book would be perfect as I’m really looking to make some more handmade gifts for them other than the usual baby quilts and bibs!

  203. Leila says:

    I’ve been in search of something like this. We have a wedding to go to in October and I just can’t find anything to sew up for my 3yo. My husband wants me to make clothes for our son but we can’t seem to find anything we both like. This book is changing it all. I can already see it. I also know that my son loves color and the pants with the different fabric patterns is gonna be his favorite.

  204. Ana says:

    Oh yes please, I’d love to win a copy of this book! My little boy is nearly 7 months old so a book like this would really set us up for a good few years to come. And we really do need MORE BOOKS FOR BOYS!!!

  205. rachael says:

    yay for great boy patterns! i’ve been looking for these since friends just had twin boys last month πŸ™‚

  206. Mary P. says:

    I sew for my two sons, or at least I try. I have one sewing pattern book for boys but it is in japanese, so it is quite tricky for me. I am soooo happy to finally have a book I will understand 100% and with so many cute ideas for my little rascals. I really hope I win.
    Thanks for the chance πŸ™‚

  207. Lauranie says:

    I will ABSOLUTELY have this book!! Thanks for the chance to win it…but mainly for bringing it to my attention! I always count on SMS for the letting me know about the latest and greatest πŸ™‚

  208. lisa says:

    i have to guys in my house…it would be nice that i can make them something from “mama’s room”. the girls get all the fun. great book!

  209. Leigh says:

    Due to have a boy any minute now and would love to make him some clothes!

  210. Love little boys and love to sew for them. Raised 3 boys and now need to start sewing for little boy grandchildren. First project would be the plaid jacket.

  211. bwilliams says:

    As a Nana to 5 (6 in Dec) boys, this book would be a godsend. There are LOTS of books re sewing for girls. But like the fashion industry, the sewing market seems to think girls are the only ones who like to look good or who appreciate handmade love. I have made pants and shorts for the boys, but that is the limit so far. Asi get older find myself with more time on my hands and with the desire to create things for my family rather than buying things for them. I am also looking for ways repurpose fabrics. My last sewing project was using a pair of his shorts as a pattern for reversible pants for the youngest GS made from thrifted men’s shirts. When they came from the machine and we had him try them on, he refused to take them off. They are his favorites cause Nana made them. I would love to be able to create more of these special clothes/memories.

  212. Lynne Burnia says:

    At last! I started sewing for my oldest boy, who is now 29, continued with my younger son, now 21 and still have a hard time finding cute boy items for my youngest who is 5. Thank you!

  213. Renee says:

    Yay, an awesome book just for boys. I have always had trouble finding great patterns for my little boy.

  214. sorabeni says:

    That’s what I’ve been waiting for!!!

  215. Diana says:

    I’d love to add this book to my library and use it to make my grandson some neat clothes!!

  216. Nicole says:

    Hooray… finally something just for the boys! I’m pretty sure my 2-year-old boy would love to finally have something else than the usual pants and shirts (the only thing that I could sew for him) in his wardrobe…:D

  217. nessa says:

    Wow – I have been waiting for a book like this! My godson Wolfe is 15 months old, and he’s had to ‘make do’ with lots of handknits, silkscreened and appliqued shirts, and patchwork pants (aka “fancypants”) up to now. I could get a LOT of mileage out of a book like this!

  218. dian says:

    what a great book and a great opportunity from your site! i’ll be glad to have a copy. my son is 2 years old and i’ll have another baby boy in less than 3 months. i’m a beginner and need to practice more in sewing. i love to make kid’s wear, they’re cute, quick and easy to make. my current projects mostly for girls and sadly i’ve only made 2 pants and a vest for my son πŸ™ i want to make more for him and his little brother. so this book is really what i need!

  219. Hannah says:

    I would LOVE a copy of this book. I have one boy and three girls and can always sew something for the girls. I am always on the look out for boy patterns. I can’t wait to sew for my boy!

  220. Alison says:

    This book looks great! I would be sewing for my little boy and for my daughter, too.
    aliben7 (at) gmail (dot) com

  221. Debra L says:

    This books looks fabulous for all the little boys in your life!

  222. Sharyn says:

    yep- my boys feel left out of the void too! Their sister (who is in the middle) get much more handmade clothes than them!!
    Finally a way to stop the jealousy- and they can flip through and choose what they wish. EASY!

  223. KeriCan says:

    Drafted some pants for my 2 yo from an old pair, but would love an actual pattern for the 10 yo. This book looks fun!

  224. Donna C says:

    yeah, a book for boys! Grandson Bauer needs some new clothes!

  225. Tina L. says:

    My latest grand son was born August 27 and it would be fun to sew for him and his older brother and cousin. The book would be well used by this grandma.

  226. stacey says:

    soo cute! i’ve been looking for a cute PJ pattern like the one shown here! can’t wait to make these for my son! (and my daughter while i’m at it!)

  227. Mika says:

    Figgy patterns are so awesome to work with. I have been able to make some easy and adorable basics for my boy (and girl), and I’m sure this book is mind-blowing. Sewing books specializing in boy’s clothing are too few and far between in my opinion!

  228. Nora says:

    I would sew for every little boy I know. I wish I had this when my son was little. It was so fun to dress him in the sweet clothes I found for him, see his adorable little legs in his summer shorts and his little jackets in winter. I’m getting a new sewing machine this week and plan to sew, sew, sew.

  229. Christy says:

    Finally! I think my boys are getting smothered with all the pillowcases and quilts I’ve made. What else has there been to make for boys that is actually cute?

  230. Hannah says:

    OMdoubleGoodness! I am so freakin’ excited about this Sewing For Boys book! I can’t tell you how many things I’ve made for me sweetest little sweet pea daughter but I can easily count the items that I’ve made for my rock-lovin, puddle-jumpin’ handsome son. I’d need to make him some attractive and active clothing!

  231. Alana says:

    I am really excited about this book! I will be sewing for the young boys in my family and two of my good friends just had boys.

  232. Joelle says:

    oooh, i would LOVE to win this book … if not, it’s going on my christmas list for/from my mom! πŸ˜‰

  233. Mama Lusco says:

    Looks like a great book! I wish there were more patterns for big boys, too.

  234. Nichole P says:

    I love classic looks for boys and I keep making skirts and dresses for my daughter because of a lack of cute outfits to make for my son. I’d love to have a go-to book of patterns for him.

  235. Becca says:

    I would love a copy of this book!! I’d sew for my sweet little 8 week old! I’m very excited to check this book out!

  236. ashley says:

    I would love to peruse this book because we welcomed a sweet baby boy into our family last Wednesday after having two girls! It is easy to find fun new projects to sew for them, but when I heard the dr say it’s a boy in the delivery room, my first thought was that I have no idea how to make clothes for boys!!

  237. Melanie says:

    My beautiful 3 year old boy is sandwiched between two gorgeous sisters who wear more handmade than him purely because of a lack of cool boys patterns (and a glut of amazing girls patterns!!). I would absolutely love to sit with him and have him choose some “big boy” clothes for Mama to make for him!! Thanks for the chance!

  238. Sherry J says:

    wow , what a cool book. perfect for my grandsons. now i can sew for them too.

  239. Bethany says:

    I’m excited to see what the book offers in patterns!

  240. carrie says:

    I would sew a fall jacket for my son. I love the plaid one featured here!

  241. Jams says:

    I’d sew for my nephews and my daughter. Honestly, I love the stylenof these clothes and would love to see my little girl in so many of these patterns!

  242. Mariel W says:

    I’m always making things for my daughter, it would be so fun to make things for my son too!

  243. Heather C says:

    I get so discouraged when I look at commercial patterns and there are a ton of cute options for girls and hardly any for boys! I love the idea of using old clothes of my husbands to sew for my son!

  244. I have a 14 month old boy and I just started sewing this year and I would love to be able to make some cute things for him. I also have 2 nephews that I would love to make a few things for also and lots of friends with little boys.

  245. Anna K says:

    This book fulfills the need for a book regarding sewing for boys. The patterns look absolutely gorgeous. I would sew clothes for the adopted son of a very close friend. I think that it would rekindle my desire to sew clothes, something I haven’t done for too many years.
    Thanks for the opportunity

  246. Heather L says:

    This book looks great! Though I have 2 girls, 7 of the 8 moms close to me who were pregnant this year had boys…that’s a lot of boy sewing!

  247. Chris Vanderstoep says:

    I have a three year old son, and am SOOO excited to see this book! I have been sewing for almost two years now, and have so much trouble finding cute patterns for boys. This one rocks!!! :o)

  248. Bethany C says:

    I would love to use this to make things for a friend of mine who has boys, as well as some rompers for my little girl.

  249. Jamie says:

    I would love some inspiration on sewing for the boys in my life. I always have a stash of girl’s things made and ready for gifting, but I end up buying a box of Legos or whatever for the boys. A 2-in-1 Jacket would be so much better!

  250. Dorian says:

    I’d love to win this for my baby boy who NEVER fits into anything store bought. He is a tiny little piece of baby and everything is either to short, too wide! I’d love to be able to know how to make things for him that actually fit and look great! Thanks for thte chance πŸ™‚

  251. Sarah says:

    Well, I have not one but THREE boys. I love sewing for them, it’s totally rare to find really truely cute boy patterns for different ages.

  252. Lissa says:

    Oh how I would love to win this. I have three sons and little money. It’s so frustrating trying to make unisex patterns look boyish! There IS difference! Welt pocket craving!

  253. Zena says:

    I too have three little boys (all under 4) and I love to sew for them, but how many pairs of cute pyjammies does a little guy need?! This book looks amazing, just the inspiration I need to sew them a gorgeous wardrobe! Thanks x

  254. Shawna says:

    I’m so putting this on my wishlist! We just had a baby boy last December. Before that, I didn’t really care as we had 2 girls, but now I am finding a severe lack of boys patterns that I love!

  255. Stephanie W says:

    I am so thrilled that you introduced this book to me!! I went shopping for my 9 month old son tonight as he needs some warmer clothes, but can’t wear anything with fleece or polyester as he has eczema. I had a hard time finding things I like and thought I should just sew him some things instead, if only I could find some patterns. This is perfect! Thank you for the chance to enter and possibly even win!

  256. Jamie says:

    My son gets so sick and tired of hearing that I’m making something for his sisters AGAIN. He would LOVE it if I won this book and could start making some great things JUST FOR HIM!! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  257. Nikki says:

    I rarely enter giveaways because it seems like such a long shot, but I cannot resist at least trying for this one, I am so excited there is a book for boys!!! I have two little girls and one little boy and have been on the hunt for cute stuff to sew for him. YES! πŸ™‚

  258. Erin says:

    This looks like a great book! Cute boy clothes! Woo hoo!
    Thanks SMS for the chance to win!

  259. AP says:

    It really goes up to 7-years-old? Wow! Sewing for boys is tough when you don’t feel comfortable creating your own patterns, so this would be a great addition to the sewing books I’ve been collecting. I fear my son will outgrow some of the projects I want to do before I get a chance to make them. This one looks like it has some great projects.

  260. Sue D says:

    I have already raised 4 boys but now I have a grandson to sew for.

  261. Brandi Hart says:

    I’m so happy to see a book of boy’s clothes that look like boy’s clothes. I’d sew for my nephew and some friends’ boys. Maybe I’ll have a boy to sew for one day.

  262. Trish says:

    I already sew for my little 3 year old guy, but I could use some fresh ideas.

  263. Linda says:

    Oh my gosh! You don’t know how happy I am to know there’s a book of boy stuff! All of a sudden, I have three grandsons who are now ages 9 months, 15 months, and 22 months! And being a sew-er since the late 60s, I’d be all over making things for my little guys. Thanks so much for the chance to win.

  264. rachel says:

    I’d love to have this to sew for my little guy…and my bigger guy!

  265. knitsewreadlove says:

    If my gut is right, I’ll be having a boy in 9 short weeks, and there are only little girl patterns around this house! And if I’m wrong, my best friend has one sweet little boy already and another one on the way; I’d love to gift this to her as well! She is actually the one who introduced me to patterns by Figgy’s… I’ve adapted some (technically) boy patterns for my very girly little girl, and though I haven’t sewn any yet, I’m looking forward to it!

  266. Emmmylizzzy says:

    Even though I have a girl, and am pregnant with girl #2, there are just so many patterns that I love in here that would be great for girls as well! And I can finally have a go-to book for handmade presents for boys!

  267. Ginger says:

    This books sound great. As a Mom to boys I always feel that boys get slighted in the pattern department. I can’t wait to get my hand on this book.

  268. Megan says:

    This book looks fantastic! I would love to make some of these patterns for my son!

  269. Addy says:

    I’d love to win this book! I’d sew for my son (and daughter) and probably make gifts too.

  270. EmmaNadine says:

    I have a four year old boy who would love for his momma to finally have things to sew for him!

  271. Monica Gee says:

    I would die to have this book! I have a house full of boys and just found out our new baby due in Jan is a boy too! Need this book!

  272. jessica w. says:

    I don’t have any boys of my own,but I love sewing items for friends or for showers!

  273. Diana says:

    Oh MY!!!! I am expecting our first little one in December, and we just found out he’s a boy–I can only imagine how much fun I would have choosing fabrics to go with the patterns in this book! I was so excited when it showed up on the blog, and I just might go and buy the book if I don’t win…although I’m picky about what I spend my sewing cash on πŸ™‚ Thanks for letting us know about this great book!

  274. Sonya says:

    I have a five year old boy and have never found a pattern for him that I liked. I really like that Corduroy Jacket. I would like to make that for him for the fall. Very cute.

  275. Mamima says:

    It’s really nice to have all these wonderful things for a boy in one book. I know a three year old boy who would be very happy for wear cloths sewed by his parents.

  276. Kristen says:

    I have been waiting for this book since I heard about it! Can’t wait to get it and start sewing for my almost 3 year old little boy!

  277. Jen S says:

    I’m so excited about this book! My son keeps begging for me to make him something besides bags and hats. Hurray! Thanks for the chance to win a copy!

  278. megan says:

    LOVE to sew for my little man and 2 nephews!

  279. Amber H says:

    I’m actually pretty excited about this.. I finally have a boy to sew for.. he’s almost 5 months old! I’ve sewn clothes for my girls, but have yet to sew some for him.

  280. Teresa says:

    Wow I am SO glad I came across this link. We have a little one on the way and due any minute now! The patterns start at 3 months you say, perfect timing. Honestly, even if I don’t win the give-away (fingers crossed that we will though n_n) we are so buying this for our little guy.

  281. Beth T says:

    What a great book. I’d love to share this with my niece, who just welcomed another cute son.

  282. April says:

    I am so glad there is finally more cute stuff for boys! I’d sew for my son, my great nephew and a friend that is pregnant for a little boy due in October.

  283. Gina G says:

    I’m having a boy in December and this book is definitely on my wish list. Now I can’t say that there aren’t any crafty boy books out there.

  284. Catherine says:

    I saw a promo for this book a few months ago and promptly put it on my wish list on amazon. I’m looking forward to finally checking this out!

  285. ooo i have two little boys and would love this! thanks for the chance to win!!

  286. Marianne says:

    I’d sew for my (soon to be) THREE boys! And/or share with my mother, who would love to sew for them too.

  287. AnnaPK says:

    I want this book!!!!! I have a 2 year old son and a newborn son so we would get tons of use out of this book! The jacket you made your son is beautiful- er I mean handsome!!! πŸ™‚

  288. Tina C. says:

    HOORAY! my 2 monkeys will wear anything I make for them. i’m relishing this since their father hardly likes anything i make for him so i’ve quit doing that.

  289. Willow Fodor says:

    These patterns look wonderful. I have two special boys and I am always looking for things to sew for them.

  290. Janelle says:

    Oh my gosh – SO excited. I have 3 boys: 13, 6, and 1 (next week). After searching (often in vane) for really classic boy’s clothes, and even more so for sewing patterns beyond PJs I would LOVE to have one of these books. My girls regularly get new customized things from me – I know the boys would feel really special to get their own creative clothes.

  291. Andrea. says:

    I’m so excited for a sewing book for boys! I only have a nephew right now and need projects for him

  292. Kelly says:

    THis looks like a lovely book! I have FIVE little boys who would absolutely love it if I sewed them something to wear — I’ve sewn art kits, felt play mats, and Halloween costumes for them, but never actual clothes they could wear to school. Pick me! πŸ™‚

  293. Beth says:

    I’m always making cute twirly skirts and fun ruffles for my daughter, but my little bug is left out of the fun. How great to have classic designs for boys all in one book.

  294. Alicia says:

    omgoodness!!!!! It’s about time our boys get some love! My little Gabriel is15 mo old and could get a ton of use from this! That jacket is too stinkin cute! Man I wish they had had more geared towered boys when my Levi was here. I am so excited and eager to get my hands on this just in time for fall!!

  295. Shana Putnam says:

    Oh I am thrilled that the book is all for boys. I would definitely use it to sew awesome stuff for my son Blaze. Thank you for the chance.

  296. Alex says:

    Would love to win this book! It is so hard to find good boys’ clothing patterns and this looks like it fits the bill perfectly!

  297. Tawny says:

    Of course I’d sew for my little boy. I actually love sewing for him because he sincerely loves everything I make for him. No “Mom this isn’t the right colour” or “Mom I won’t wear these pants” ever from that boy. He’s my #1 fan πŸ˜€ I’d love to have more patterns for him.

  298. Denise says:

    Right now I’m sewing some reversible fall pants for my little one who’ll be 9 months in a few days. I’ve been able to cobble together a collection of go-to patterns for baby boys, and would love to have a book that doesn’t have 90% dresses in it! It looks perfect.

  299. Audrey says:

    Cute stuff!

  300. Michelle H says:

    I have a little boy who I would love to sew for! I always find great patterns for my nieces online but it’s tough to find cute boy stuff for my son.

  301. Diane Kwak says:

    I just started sewing with a hand-me-down machine, and am smitten! I did notice that most of the stuff I’ve been looking into sewing has been for my 2 girls, while my son seems to get more neglected. Would love a copy of the book for boys! Please pick me! πŸ™‚

  302. Shannon C says:

    So excited that there is finally a book for boys! I feel like all the cute patterns out there are for girls’ clothes. I would love love this book to sew some fun new clothes for my 2 little boys; I promise to share it also with my mother-in-law who now has 4 grandsons to sew for!

  303. Shannah says:

    Please enter me, too! So many little boys coming to my friends, and I’m so excited to see these wonderful outfits!

  304. erika luke says:

    YAY! even if i don’t win this book, i will have to order it from sms!!

    SO discouraging to flip through pattern books and see ONE or two patterns for boys – the same romper and pj pants and everything else for girls!!!

    HOORAY!!! for figgy’s!!

  305. Liane says:

    Excited to find some great patterns for my 3 boys!

  306. Maya says:

    I have two boys–aged 7 and 3, so I’d definitely be sewing for them! Even better, my 7 yo has started doing some sewing himself so maybe he’d use the book to do some sewing for himself.

  307. Laura L. says:

    Such a great book! I’d love to sew for my two nephews. Thanks for the giveaway.

  308. Liz says:

    What a great idea! I’ve always had a hard time finding cute useful patterns for my boys (2.5 year old twins) and now expecting another boy in March I definitely will get use out of this book. Not only am I apparently only good at making boys but so are all of my friends. I have 5 non family members who have boys under the age of 3 so honestly if I don’t win it I will probably be buying it eventually. Thanks for the awesome site and awesome opportunity!

  309. Wow, I wasn’t even aware this book came out! Thanks so much SMS for bringing this out! Of course I’d love to win a copy, but if I don’t I see myself purchasing it for sure!

  310. Mary says:

    I would love to use this book to sew for my grandson Colt. Girls are easy to sew for, but things for boys are not so easy to find.

  311. R Carter says:

    Finally! How exciting to have a book just for boys! I would make anything and everything in this book for my 4 y/o who wants to know why IO only sew for Leah! Cause it’s easier ofcourse! And because I’m a sewing newbie and its just safer to start with girls…anything looks cute on girls, right? I do have a little stack of boys fabric just waiting to be cut into!

  312. Sally says:

    This book is so awesome that members of my family pre-ordered copies which they lovingly devoured the day it was available! Full disclosure: my son is one of the cuties who modeled. But the instructions are well-written and clear, the designs are innovative and awesome, yet easy to execute! Love it!!!

  313. Fenna says:

    would love to be able to sew some of these for my 2 boys!!!!

  314. shugkz says:

    what a great idea for a book. Having raised 2 sons, and having 3 grandsons to sew for now, I could really put this book to some good use!

  315. Krystal says:

    Yea for boys!! I have a little boy and just started sewing and there are very few things out there for our sweet boys! I’m excited to try some new patterns!

  316. Lins says:

    How cool this book is just for boys! I struggle with what to sew for them, girls are so much easier! I would be using it to sew for my new little guy Elijah due Oct 4th!

  317. Debbie Laney says:

    You can never find little boy patterns. I would love to have some patterns to make for for grandson.

  318. Dana McKenzie says:

    This looks great. It is lovely to see a book just for boys. Pity my son is too old for these clothes, but I have a nephew who I sew for who would look adorable in the two in one jacket. Thanks for the review and a chance to win.

  319. Donna S. says:

    I would love to have this book to sew some things for my grandson!!

  320. Crunchy Con Mommy says:

    I’d sew for my 2 year old son. I’ve bought a few patterns for clothes for him but haven’t tried them yet (just got a sewing machine for my birthday!) and I’m excited by the prospect of a whole BOOK of things to make him!

  321. Leigh Anne says:

    I have 2 boys and haven’t really sewn anything for them cuz I can never find anything cute πŸ™‚

  322. Kris says:

    It is so nice to see a book for boys that goes beyond the infant stage! My 4 yr old could pick out a few things, I’m sure.

  323. Christa says:

    I have a brand new baby boy and I am very excited about an entire book of projects to sew for him.

  324. Christine says:

    Oh please, select me! I have two little boys, aged 2 and 3 yrs. Since I always felt that patterns for boys are rare (and often outfashioned) I would love to own the book and sew some cute clothes for my boys. And with 4-5 years to come until they get 7, I might do all of them! So, thanks for featuring the book, it looks great! And thanks for the chance to win!

  325. Brigette says:

    Very cute book.

  326. Brittany R says:

    I’m due with my first – a little boy!- in November and would love to grab this book and find more things so make for him! It’s definitely a book for the Christmas list!

  327. Lisa g says:

    I have lots of nephews I’d be sewing for!

  328. Julie says:

    It always seems so hard to find cute patterns for boys! These looks like simple patterns that would be fun to try! I would love a chance to win the book!

  329. Amanda says:

    I’ve been looking forward to this book for a while. I love the patterns and the fabric choices are inspirational. I’d like to make most of the patterns in this book for my two little guys! Thanks!

  330. R Carter says:

    I’ve only been sewing for a short while, but have definitely not made ANYTHING boy yet! not even a pillow cover! Yikes. Now I feel a little bad. My four year old boy is always asking when I’m going to make something for him. So I went out and bought a few yards of different fabrics. Now to find something to make with them! This book will just be awesome!

  331. Laura says:

    I’m so happy to see something other than shorts, camp shirts and rompers for boys! I’ll probably buy a copy if I don’t win!

  332. Cinnamon says:

    Yes, yes, yes! Must have!

  333. Anna says:

    I’m about to have a baby boy and have looked around a lot for cute boy clothing patterns. They’re around, but hard to find. I love sewing for my daughter, and am looking forward to sewing for this little guy! Store-bought boys clothes can be so boring.

    Great review!

  334. sharon says:

    This book sounds great. Thanks for entering me!

  335. Leah says:

    I’ve been looking forward to this book. I have one boy and 6 girls and am always looking for cute boy patterns. I would love to win it.

  336. Katrina H says:

    Finally! there are so many books and patterns for girls clothing, it’s hard to find a boys things! Great book!

  337. brittney b says:

    This book looks awesome. I have a 22month old boy and another baby ont the way. I love sewing and look all the time to find cute stuff to sew for my little man this book would be perfect for making him a fall wardrobe.

  338. Jillian says:

    Love it! I was just explaining this lack of boy patterns to my husband and his response was: oh, so the clothing disparity starts early! (Don’t get him started on the uneven distribution of our local Gap.) Well we’ve got twin nephews showing up this winter and we’ve got to find a solution!

  339. Katie says:

    This book looks amazing. I have two boys to sew for, one the right size for this book. It seems my girls get most of my handmade clothing, this would be great to give more to my boys.

  340. Millie says:

    I sew for my 3 girls and one boy….poor boy sometimes gets forgotten! This book looks fab!

  341. Sara says:

    I have a son who I’d love to sew more things for. I’m frequently making stuff for his little sister, and would love some patterns to make special things for him, too.

  342. Kristine says:

    Wow, this is so exciting! I have 4 boys and this would just be so fun to finally sew for my kids!!

  343. Tami says:

    Boy patterns that are cute? AWESOME! I have two boys of my own. 6 year old K-man, and 2 yea old Little-C. I’ve made them a few things, but their little girl friends benefit WAY more from my sewing than they do. I would LOVE to spoil them with some ‘made by mom’ goods. It would be awesome to win…but if I don’t I think I’ll be getting the book anyhow! – Thanks for the review.

  344. An says:

    The two-in-one-jacket is my favorite too! Such a cute jacket! The two little boys in my life would look great in ‘sewing for boys’clothes. I love Patterns by FiggyÒ€ℒs, I think I will adore this book.

  345. Leslie O says:

    I have five sons and have always been frustrated that there was never anything good to sew for them. I have made lots of pajamas, and definitely lots of super hero costumes, but that book looks like it will go way beyond capes!

  346. Liz says:

    I would love this!! I have 2 little boys who would love me t sew them some clothing !

  347. Anna O says:

    Very awesome! That’s going on my Xmas wishlist. πŸ™‚

  348. Byrney says:

    I would sew for my 2 boys as I am always sewing for my little girl. A book dedicated to boys is so fab, thanks for the chance.

  349. Sandy says:

    Wow wish I had this book 40+ years ago to sew for my son. He was always tall and thin; had to take darts in the waist of his pants. It will now be easy to sew for his twin sons who are tall.

  350. lee says:

    I would love to sew for my nephews! thanks!

  351. kathyh says:

    I don’t currently have any boys to sew for. My own son is 21 now and wants things like chalk bags for rock climbing. I made up countless patterns off of store-bought clothing for him as he was growing up because the big four pattern companies were awful in their sizing. I must have made half a dozen camo pants/ponchos in different sizes as he grew. I am excited to see that sewing for boys is getting more press time.
    BTW, I love how you did the jacket for your son – re-purposing items that spell family. My own children loved it when I did this.

  352. Aubrey says:

    I have one sweet son, Judah, who I’d love to be able to sew more clothes for!! So, so excited there is finally a book for boys!

  353. Filipa says:

    For girls it’s easier. Lots of patterns and tutorials, but for boys… So happy to know about the book. Congratulations! It will be very helpful.
    My nephews will be thrilled, always complaining that the girls always get the good stuff!

  354. kim schmidt says:

    Wonderful to see a book out for the boys in our lives! I’d be making stuff for my nephews all the time if I won a copy!

  355. naty says:

    I really want this book! I have a little boy in my life and I would love to do everything in the book. Thanks for the giveaway!

  356. Christy says:

    I always make things for my daughter, and my son gets neglected! This would give me a great starting-point to making things for him.

  357. Melissa says:

    Thanks for the review. This definitely looks like a great book. As a mom of a little boy, I can attest to how hard it is to find good boy patterns, and a whole book full is unheard of. That coat is adorable, and you did a great job. I can’t believe it only took 3 hours start to finish!

  358. Sandryte says:

    I would definitely use this book for my little boy’s wardrobe!

  359. bree says:

    Lovely, my Beau would love me to sew him something from this book!

  360. Amy says:

    I have 2 little boys that I would love to sew for!

  361. Alli says:

    How fantastic! I have two baby boys (my two-year-old is still a baby to me :D), so it would be fantastic to have a book of stuff to sew for them. Thanks for the giveaway!

  362. Being a mom of boys this is absolutely awesome! There are tons of things for girls, but look at those adorable things for boys!

  363. Michelle says:

    With 4 boys of my own and 8 nephews I could sure put this book to good use! πŸ™‚ Thank you so much for offering!

  364. Dawn says:

    I would sew for my grandson’s age 4 and 7. I love the plaid jacket.

  365. Mary says:

    Wow I am so excited to sew for my boy. I’ve made big butt baby pants for him and he’s now nearly 2 so I need to move on to some new projects and this book would be ideal, especially as he has 2 big sisters and he can’t wear their hand-me-downs! I’ve not used any patterns by Figgy’s but hear great things about them.
    thanks for the chance to win.

  366. Katy says:

    I work in a quilt shop and if I had a dime for every mother or grandmother of boys that say, “there just isn’t as many cute things for boys as there is for girls” I would be a rich woman. I have a 2 year old son and 3 nephews under the age of 4. If my grandparents were still alive, they would have 18 great-grandsons out of 21 great-grandchildren. I think the scales are tipped ;).

  367. Delores Wagg says:

    Book looks awesome! I have two grandsons and a new grandbaby arriving soon – which may, indeed, be a third boy!! Would be great to have a book of MODERN, CUTE patterns.
    Thanks for the chance.

  368. Karin B. says:

    With 2 boys (and 4 nephews) I am always looking for boys patterns! So glad this has come out … can’t want to see a copy πŸ™‚

  369. Becca says:

    Yay! All devoted to boys! This is what I need. I have 2 boys and would love to sew for them.



  370. Syl says:

    As a momma of two little boys & little spare time for making my own designs I am THRILLED about the publication of this book! I’d love to win a copy, sure, but it’s definitely ending up on my shelf regardless! Thanks for sharing your work with us, ladies!

  371. Clodagh says:

    I have three boys, 2 of which complain I sew too much for my daughter. This book is well needed in my house. Thanks

  372. Kelly says:

    I’ve been looking for cute items to sew for my son and I cant seem to find much. Looking forward to this book. Thanks!

  373. thewench says:

    It’s about time we had an awesome boy sewing book… I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy somehow.

    I love the little jacket there, and think he will look amazing when he heads to Kindergarten this year… well done on reusing fabrics too – it always makes me happy to see things not going to waste!

  374. Laura W. says:

    Thanks for the chance to win! I have a little boy named Henry so he “needs” a Henry shirt, and those Treasure pants are adorable.

  375. Beth Laske-Miller says:

    I would LOVE to sew more for my son! Store-bought stuff rarely fits, and he has a wacky, offbeat personality, so custom clothing would be great for him!

  376. Christina G. says:

    How exciting! My boys are 3 & 5 and I adore sewing for them. They love helping me pick patterns and material and my older one wants to learn to sew. This book would be perfect for us all. I think I’d make that awesome jacket first!

  377. Cecily says:

    What a wonderful resource. I’ve also been waiting for this. I’ve got three boys in the age-range for the book, and they all could stand some new, well-made clothes.

  378. Steph says:

    I only have girls but I do have 6 nephews that I would love to sew for I just can’t seem to find things for them like I can the girls. I would really love to win this giveaway.

  379. ………………………………………

  380. rebecca says:

    I have three little boys and I gotta say that this book looks wonderful! And as a bonus, it looks like most of these patterns would translate really well into girl’s clothes, which my daughter would love too! Thanks

  381. Liz says:

    Can’t wait to see this book in person. As a mom to a girl and a boy, I always felt a little bummed that I could make a whole wardrobe for my daughter but couldn’t find the right pattern to make my son anything. Looks like this book will fit the bill nicely!

  382. Michelle Cammack says:

    I would sew for my son! He is a few weeks shy of his 1st birthday and I hate that it is so hard to find cute boy things. I think this would be amazing and would really help me enhance his wardrobe!

  383. Cova says:

    I would love to win a copy but I surely won’t, so I’ll have to buy it.

  384. Florence says:

    Three hours to cut, sew & model sounds amazing. I’ve been so excited about this book.

  385. Kim C says:

    Why was this not done before? Finally! I have 2 grand sons, so this would be a welcome addition! Thank you so much for the great pics and review!

  386. ani says:

    oh, this is gorgeous! i would love a copy of this book. i’m sure my son would, too.

  387. Stacey says:

    Oh, how I’d love to win one of these books. I’m so jazzed over the fact that there is FINALLY a book of patterns for BOY clothing. I always say I’m going to sew for my three boys but then I chicken out because I don’t have a pattern. I love the fact that this book has great pictures so you can see just what you’re making.

  388. katie says:

    i have three wonderful boys, still dreaming of a girl, there are so few boys patterns and ideas out there. i am always looking for patterns for them and their friends. it seems the only boy patterns are for costumes. would love to have this book.

  389. Narelle says:

    Please pick me!!! I have this on hold at our library…and they don’t even have it yet LOL I would love to win a copy!!! I have 2 sons to sew for πŸ™‚

  390. katie says:

    i’d love having some cute patterns to sew for my little boy! he’ll be growing into those sizes in no time!

  391. Mandy says:

    Man, am I glad to see this book. I sew for my two boys and this would be a VERY welcome addition. Hope I win this one.

  392. Allie says:

    Yes please! So want this one for projects for my little boy.

  393. Sara says:

    With a 5 year old little guy and another boy on the way, this would be a fabulous addition to my sewing library (understatement!). Giveaway winner or not, this book will soon be mine…

  394. Angel Holland says:

    I have a nephew who is about to turn three, and I never know what to make for him! My two nieces are so easy to sew for – frilly fun skirts, dolls, anything! The boys are always the challenge.

  395. mamacharm says:

    yes please! i have a new boy to sew for and it’s head scratching hard to find likeable boy patterns. would love to go through this book.

  396. Lorraine says:

    My son would look so cute in these clothes. There are never enough boy patterns, so I would love this book!

  397. Rebekah says:

    This would be awesome and so very well used.

  398. Sofia Lung says:

    I would sew for my lil boy and his best friend. I hope to have 4 boys so I really want this book!!

  399. Kendra says:

    I’ve been sewing for my 2 girls for years, but just had a baby boy 2 months ago. How I would love to have a little guidance so I can confidently sew for him, too.

  400. Melinda says:

    I just finished sewing up another trinket keeper for my other nephew for his birthday. This was a fantastic tutorial SMS had posted in the past for boys. I’d love more ideas for gifts for my nephews and this book looks perfect for that!

  401. Martha says:

    I’ve got a 4-year-old who LOVES projects I sew for him. I was really hoping for a girl for my second pregnancy so that I could finally make all the beautiful patterns/crafts I see everywhere! Oh well, baby number 2 is a boy and books like this ease the disappointment a bit πŸ˜‰

  402. Valerie says:

    I have 4 boys. 3 of them are still small enough to wear the patterns in this book!

  403. Heather says:

    Considering I have 3 boys (7,4,&1) I would definitely be sewing for them. How lovely to have a whole book of stuff to sew for boys.

  404. Sonja says:

    I would sew for my son who just turned three. It’s so frustrating to find so many cute girl patterns but nearly none for boys – this books is awesome!

  405. VickiT says:

    This book looks just awesome. Definitely one that was very needed. There are so many books about cute little girl things but very few about boys. My first Grandson was just born last week and I know I’d be thrilled to have this book and know I’ll be making things from it very soon. Thank you for such a great review. I love the little pajamas you showed. Super cute.

  406. StaceyN says:

    OMG!!! That book would be wonderful! My husband and I were trying for years to get pregnant and I’m now almost 22 weeks pregnant with a boy! I’ve been looking online for cute boy stuff to sew and I tend to see SO much more girl stuff. haha This book looks amazing. <3

  407. dorothy says:

    I have been waiting and waiting for this book to come out. I have two little boys of my own (18 mos and 3 1/2) and a new nephew on the way. I can’t wait to try these patterns.

  408. nopinkhere says:

    I love their patterns and I NEED this book! I’m so glad it goes up to size 7.

  409. Amanda says:

    This is so exciting! I have a feeling I’ll want to make everything in the book, too. Now we just more cute non-garish fabrics for boys…

  410. Martha says:

    Wow. Finally, nice boy patterns that are tasteful.

  411. Lauren says:


    I’ve have been experiencing intense crafters guilt on behalf of my son- his big sister has so many cute things I’ve made her! But it’s not all my fault- there are so many more projects out there for girls (patterns, tutorials, toys, fabrics…).

  412. BeccaMcK says:

    Please pick me. I am a mother of two boys who is sick of seeing all the adorable clothes books for girls (although I do have 4 adorable nieces that benefit from these.) I would love to be able to make my little guys something other than elastic waist pants. Great idea and so happy to see someone has been listening to our requests for more cute boy patterns.

  413. Wendy says:

    This is a must have, even if I don’t win it! I just gave birth to my son 3 weeks ago. He has two older sisters that I’ve been sewing for since they were born. I’m wracking my brain about what to make for him with some of the cute “boy” fabric I have, and I keep coming up blank! Pick me!

  414. MollyP says:

    Love it! So excited to see a boy-based book that is way more practical and cool than cutesy. Thanks!

  415. Rachel says:

    I have two little boys at home who I LOVE to sew for! This book looks amazing with some great patterns in it I would love to try!!

  416. Elizabetg says:

    Oh my goodness! I will likely buy this book even if I don’t win! Thanks for the inspiration! My son will benefit from those great jackets!

  417. bianca says:

    I am pregnant with a boy and would love this book! I sew tons for my daughter, but get stuck when it comes to boys. The patterns in this book look awesome and creative. Thanks for the chance to win!

  418. Aurélie says:

    Oh, how I would love to win this book! I haven’t got children of my own yet, but I would finally have some patterns for all my friends’ and colleagues’ boys! What an amazing give-away!

  419. Penny Lutz says:

    My almost 6 year old son always wishes I would sew clothes for him and not just his sister. His items have been limited to Halloween costumes. I would love to have this book so he could pick out his own style!

  420. Carla G says:

    I would be sewing for my twin boys. I’m always looking for patterns/ideas for something new for them. This book look awesome ~ I would love to win a copy! πŸ™‚

  421. Cynthia says:

    A whole book of patterns for boys?? Yes, please! That jacket is adorable.

  422. Hilary says:

    I love the jacket in your photos. My 4yo is about to outgrown his plaid fall jacket and I would definitely make him a new one…

  423. Amy says:

    This is amazing!

    So many of my friends and family are having baby boys. It would be so nice to have a book full of ideas for these little cuties πŸ™‚

  424. Alicia says:

    I would just love to sew my little guy clothes from this book! I’m so tired of the same old dinosaur, robot, etc clothes you find in stores. I have such fun sewing for my little girl and I need some ideas and inspiration for sewing for my boy.

  425. Kylie C says:

    My sister just had a baby boy, the first little one in the family in 15 years. I’m a crafter and it’s been so difficult to find boy things to create- tutorial list always have dozens of skirts and dresses but only one or two boy outfits. I’m so glad to find this book. Thank you for the review.

  426. Kim says:

    This book is at the top of my wish list! I love PBF patterns for my little guy? Thanks for the chance to win!

  427. Gill says:

    At last – some cool patterns for my boys!!

  428. Helen Gillis says:

    Great book!! I would sew for my grand-daughter, Anna. I think she would look great in the Two-in-One jacket.

  429. Annie says:

    I would LOVE having this book. No, I NEED this book…as it is so difficult to find good patterns for little guys. I love making things for my one and only little grandson, and this would be a huge help! The plaid coat you made is awesome, btw. πŸ™‚

  430. Ann says:

    Looks like a great book for my three sons and even something for their sister in there.

  431. Rebecca says:

    I’d love to get some more ideas of what to sew for my little guy!

  432. Alma says:

    i have two boys, & i love sewing for them, i wish that book, it’s amazing & their patterns so beautiful

  433. Lindsey M. says:

    I would definitely start by making something for my son bbut my nephews would benefit too. This book looks awesome!

  434. Deirdre says:

    Ooh, I’d love to have this book for my almost-6-year-old and my new little guy coming in December. As it is, their sister gets all the cute stuff!

  435. Vanessa says:

    I have 2 cutie-boo little boys, ages 4, and 15 months, and I’m always looking for good sewing patterns for them!

  436. Jen says:

    I need to get this book! I have two little boys and am looking forward to making the Treasure Pocket Pants and the Two-In-One Jacket for them both!

  437. Danielle K. says:

    I would love to sew clothes for my little toddler. Those pictures are so cute!

  438. Jennifer Odom says:

    Hooray! It’s so hard to find cute boy stuff to sew, this book looks great. I’ll be sewing for my son, especially that cute jacket.

  439. JLWhite says:

    I know that I am not alone here… this Mom of 3 boys is THRILLED to see this book arriving. We love to create for our family, and am happy to have some new boyish patterns to choose from!

  440. Nichole says:

    absolutely amazing!! My kindergartener would definitely benifit from this book!!

  441. Mindy says:

    I’m sooo glad this book is out! I have five g-daughters who I love sewing for, but finding something to sew for my three g- sons is much harder. I’ve done rompers for the little ones, but the five year old is past that point. I really like that some of these patterns would be good for beginners. Although I love to sew I’m not supper accomplished yet, and with eight grands I try to stick to simple stuff so I can make each of them something without it taking forever to do so.

    I really love this site! I am always inspired by visiting here!

  442. JJ says:

    Yay for sewing books for boy clothes! It’s about time…I’d be sewing for my son.

  443. Samina says:

    I’m delighted to see your review of this book. I’d love to win a copy, but I’m definitely buying one if I don’t. My little guy is 3 & he’d look adorable in the clothes in it.

  444. joyfulT says:

    I would love this book! I have a 6 month old boy, and clothes, even on clearance, are dang expensive!

  445. Glenys says:

    I would sew for my nephew. He’s so cute!

  446. Hannah says:

    Oh finally, something for boys. I love sewing kids clothes but its been hard to find really creative and boyish fabrics and clothing. Love the chance for some ideas.

  447. Kirsten says:

    I can hardly wait to make the treasure pocket pants and use a cute print down the side. I have two boys, 2 and almost 5, and they need the cute stuff from this book!

  448. Ange says:

    After sewing so much for my daughter, I would love some inspiration to get started on sewing for my 3 boys. This book looks great

  449. Katrina says:

    Unfortunately my two boys (3 1/2 yrs and 7 mo) get passed up all the time for me to sew for my daughter and niece….there are so many cute, quick ideas for girls, and for boys, it has been lacking….so would definitely enjoy taking some time to sew for my little guys. I love what I can see so far!

  450. Finally! A book for boys! I would love to sew something special for my nephew from this book.

  451. KellyS says:

    I would make something for my twin 2 year old boys. I have a little girl due here any day and I want to be able to make cute clothes for my boys too.

  452. Jen says:

    Wow! This looks like a fantastic book! I would definitely make things for my boy.

  453. marin says:

    i would sew for my 3 boys! how wonderful to finally find a book like this!

  454. JoyS says:

    This is lovely clothing and I would love to make some — especially the plaid jacket. But, let me be honest — I’d like this to use for my daughter. We find that boy clothing is often more comfortable than that for girls. Especially the pants and shirts. It seems more practical and just fits her better! I’d love to use this for her!

  455. Brandy says:

    I love this! I struggle coming up with wearable projects for my son. The blogworld is full of projects for girls. Boys are harder to come by!

  456. Jen says:

    These patterns look great! They look like clothes my son would actually wear AND enjoy. πŸ™‚

  457. Amy says:

    I love this book! I have been looking for a really good book of patterns/ideas for boys.
    My 3-year-old son, Vaughn, is a fiery and adorable little red-haired boy. I would be sewing cute stuff for him, especially since he is at the age of constant & rapid growing. I will be sure to share lots of pictures of him modeling the outfits if I win the book.

  458. Westin's Mom says:

    I am so happy to see this book! I have a 6m old and the patterns go up to 7, so I’ll get many years of use from it!

  459. Amanda says:

    What a beautiful book and your jacket came our spectacularly! So inspiring. I have three little boys so this book would get a lot of use at our house!

  460. twelve30 says:

    I’ve been sewing for the grandgirls for a couple of years now and now there is a grandson in the picture. I would love to have more choices of things to make for boys & this book has some great ideas. Thanks so much for a chance to win.

  461. Sara O says:

    Oh my god, I want this book! I have a little boy and a surprise on the way and I can never find (cool) patterns for boys! I’m always wanting to make my son clothes….thanks for the chance! I might just buy this book anyway if I don’t win. πŸ˜€

  462. Mary Beth says:

    Wow! What a great find! Our daughter has given us our first 2 grandsons. The boys are 2 months and 14 months. It seems like most of the patterns in the pattern catalogs are for girls. It’s great to see something for boys.

  463. Kasey says:

    I have two busy boys, and am thrilled to find a book to help me stitch more for them than just simple elastic-waist pants!

  464. Kristie says:

    I’d definitely sew my son the little heartbreaker pants first. Then the jacket and the henry shirt. So many great options. If I don’t win the book, I’ll have to buy it. Good patterns for boys are hard to find. Thanks!

  465. Ellen says:

    My little grandson will be 4 later this month. I’d love to sew some of the great designs in this book for him. Thanks for the giveaway contest.

  466. Clothdragon says:

    I only discovered Patterns by Figgy with this book, so I’d love to win a book and try out patterns before I end up buying out the site.

  467. Hilary says:

    Oh, I love adorable boys things and have been so excited for this book. I’d be sewing these for my four year old boy, and also for my lovely nephews.

  468. Ana V says:

    Looks like a great book! I’d sew for my little girl, who just turned 1, and for any siblings that may come, of course!

  469. Kimberly says:

    This book fills a huge void in the sewing industry. Thank you to Shelly and Karen for it. I would love to have this so I can see up some fun stuff for my 3 year old son. Thanks for the giveaway!

  470. Sarah Lorde says:

    I’d sew for my son. There are always such cute clothes for girls. Would be nice to be able to make cute clothes for my son.

  471. Carol Frey says:

    I’ve been waiting and waiting fo rthis book to come out! I have two boys (1 and 3), and am always sad that there are so few patterns and ideas for boys’ clothes, when thereare so many adorable things for little girls. Boys are finally getting to feel the love!

  472. AmandaL says:

    I’m hoping there are some bigger sizes here, too! my 4 y.o. is as big as a 6 year old, and i want to sew something for him before he gets to the point where he’s too cool to wear it, you know? πŸ™‚ so excited for this book, nonetheless. good gifting possibilities!

  473. I only have one boy, so I’m so very happy that this book is done, the coat it’s so incredible.

    I hope to get lucky.

  474. Melanie says:

    I’d love to win Karen and shelly’s book! The tee for two pattern they have is very nice, so I’m sure they’ve done a good job here.

  475. Rebecca says:

    I would LOVE to have this book!! After 3 daughters, our last baby (who is now 15 months) is a BOY!! I need a little (okay, a lot) of help with sewing for him! Thanks for the giveaway πŸ™‚

  476. Where has this book been all my little sewing life!?! I’m in love with these patterns! My son is just now to the BOY sizes and he would look like such a stud in these clothes! Pick Me! Pick Me!

  477. anne says:

    i hope i’m not commenting too late to get in on the giveaway! i have two boys who’ll be turning one next month, and i’d love to do more sewing for them! this book would be terrific!

  478. ste says:

    I have a five month old baby boy and also a nephew who is 4 that I’d love to find fun patterns to sew for! This is exciting!

  479. Joanne says:

    I love this book and Patterns by Figgy. I love sewing for my 2 year old son.

  480. Charity says:

    I would love to win this book! I have 6 year old twin girls and 2 year old twin boys. I am always finding cute things to sew for my girls and my boys often get left out. This book sounds perfect for me. I first heard about it a few months ago and have been waiting for it to come out. Ohhh I hope I win! πŸ™‚

  481. Jessica says:

    Yes! Finally!!! Gorgeous book for all the sewing moms with boys!!!

  482. Molly says:

    I’ve got four nephews. I’m always on the hunt for great projects for those little guys. This book is fantastic!

  483. Kathy says:

    I would sew for my darling Aidan, grandson. Every year I make him PJ’s out of the greatest flannel that I can find. But I’m tired of that and I bet he is too. So, this boys pattern book will be just what we both need !!!!

  484. Erin says:

    This book is too cute. I know lots of little baby boys that would love to have some special clothes. Hope I win…
    Thanks for a great giveaway!

  485. Jessica says:

    Ohhh….this book looks fun! I have a new nephew (first boy in our family in almost 30 years!) This would be great to sew up some really cute items for him! Thank you for the opportunity!!

  486. Rebecca says:

    I would love to win this book. I would sew things for my son and use it to make gifts also. πŸ™‚

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  487. Brenna says:

    I have a little baby boy (five months old) and there are so few patterns at the box fabric store for him! Would love this one – might even whip up some things for my adorable nephews as well!

  488. Cheryl Korman says:

    This is great. I have 3 boys to sew for and these patterns are perfect. Thanks for the giveaway!

  489. Paola K says:

    This book looks amazing, loving the hat on the cover. The jacket looks uber cute too. Can’t wait to see whats inside. I would sew things for my little boy, he is almost two, and he loves to dress himself. I am always making clothes for his sisters, he would love this.

  490. heather says:

    FInally!!! My lone boy amongst 3 sisters will get some handmade goodness:)

  491. jenny says:

    i have a son and 4 nephews that would actually wear what i would sew vs. a persnickety daughter who doesnt entertain the idea of me sewing her clothes!

  492. kate C. says:

    Cool jacket! I have two girls… but a baby on the way is a surprise and could be a boy! I’m sure plenty of these are adaptable for any gender child anyway.

  493. Kati says:

    Love it! My son hardly gets anything made for him because I just don’t know how or what to make for a boy! πŸ™‚

  494. Jane Stewart says:

    Love this! I would love to sew some gender-neutral coats, etc. That can be handed down from my three year old boy to my two year old girl!

  495. stephanie says:

    this sounds like the perfect book. It is so hard to find things to sew for boys.

  496. dyanna says:

    How adorable!! There are far too many cute things for’s about time to let the boys shine thru!! I hope I WIN!!

  497. Lisa says:

    FINALLY!!!! My son is always asking me to make him something since I’m always making things for the little girls in our lives (his sister, his cousin and all our little friends!) I can’t wait to check out this book!

  498. Mel H says:

    I love this book! It’s on my wish list. When my 4 year old was younger, there were lots of cute clothes in his size. But now that he’s 4Ò€¦ Let’s just say I’d love to sew him some things that are just right for him.

  499. Jenny says:

    I would love to win a book! I have one child so far & it’s a BOY! So I’d love some patterns for him! I’m always sewing things for my niece or my friends little girls b/c there’s so much out there, but this would be great for us! Hope I win! – Jenny

  500. Megan says:

    As the mom of a new baby boy, I could really put this book to good use!

  501. Monica says:

    This book looks so wonderful! I love the jacket you made for your son; I would love to make something like that. The details are great! I have 2 boys, ages 4 and almost 2, so I would really love a book that’s all for boys!

  502. Heather says:

    Wow, I would love to have a book like this! I have 2 boys who would love to have me sew something for them. This looks like it has soooo many great ideas in it & I’m sure my boys would have a wish list a mile long too!

  503. I’ve been looking for this since my nephew was born 10 years ago! Where have you been all my life?

  504. Libby says:

    I’m so happy to see a book about sewing for boys. After having three girls my husband and I had our first son 18 months ago. When it comes to “making” for him… well let’s just say I’ve felt a little lost. It would be great if I could create something for him that is meaningful, useful, AND CUTE! I’d love to win. Thanks for the chance.

  505. Jana W says:

    My son would be so cute in a jacket like the one pictured!

  506. AbbyK says:

    I would sew for my son and my friends children if I were to win a copy of this really cool book. Thank you for the giveaway!

  507. Jenn says:

    Our little boy is six months today, and I’ve been itching to get started working on some cute clothes for him. This would be perfect! Thanks for the chance to win and for letting me know it’s out there!

  508. Melanie T says:

    I have three boys that get overshadowed by the wonderful girl patterns out there. This looks great! Thank you for the chance.

  509. Susie Pitts says:

    I’d really love a copy of this book/patterns. My daughter has a 4 yr old girl, the love of our life, and is now expecting twins of a girl and a boy! Of course the girl will have hand-me-downs and I already have plenty of patterns for her, but I’m very limited in patterns for a boy. This is looking like sooooo much fun!
    Hope, hope, hope!

  510. Amy G. says:

    This book looks really awesome! I have two nephews I sew for, and maybe someday a son of my own!

  511. Anne S. says:

    I am dying to see this book in person! I’d sew for my dear friend’s brand new baby boy and also for my little tomboy daughter. She’ll be thrilled! Thanks for the chance to win!

  512. Caroline says:

    Hi, Thanks so much for this giveaway! I would love to sew for my little boy! With my daughter, there is always full of patterns, ideas, princess dresses requests, etc laying around… But other than his crib set, nursery decor and a onesie with a tie ; I’m running out of cute idea for my little prince!

  513. Roberta says:

    So inspiring! Maybe finally I can make that shirt my son keeps asking me to make.

  514. Faith says:

    I have three boys, and I am SO excited about this book!! Projects and patterns suitable for little boys are desperately needed.

  515. Alyson says:

    This weekend, I stopped by the nearby chain fabric store to take advantage of their pattern sale ($.99 for McCalls this time). They had a total of 3 McCalls clothing patterns for boys and one of those was unisex pjs! I was pretty disappointed. I ended up picking up the best of those three patterns in both sizes available, just in case I can’t get any more in the future.

    I would love to win this book. My four year old will be very excited! (as will I!)

  516. Mary says:

    I hardly ever enter giveaways anymore but THIS one I would love to have. Having only boys (who are beyond the toddler stage) it’s sometimes hard to find fun things to make for them. Keeping my fingers crossed! πŸ™‚

  517. Andrea says:

    Thanks for a great review. I donÒ€ℒt have children but sew for my nephew and have found it difficult to find good patterns for boys. Sound like this book is it!

  518. Jayme says:

    Just bought this for a friend! Now I want to know if the baby in my belly is a boy!! I’ll need my own copy if it is!

  519. Aimee says:

    I always love to find new things to sew for my boys! What a great idea for a book!

  520. T says:

    I have a son and would love to sew for him.

  521. SweetPea04 says:

    Yay for boys! I am so excited about this book and being able to have some great patterns for my lil’ boy!

  522. Kristy says:

    I *have* to buy this, ASAP!

  523. Amy says:

    I love this book and I have two girls!

  524. Karen says:

    I would sew for my son.

  525. Stacy says:

    Looks like a very cute book. So tired of all the little girl’s clothes – sewing for boys is where it’s at!

  526. Henria O. says:

    Finally a great book for boys clothing! This is awesome! Thanks for the giveaway!

  527. Callie says:

    I never wanted to sew until I had my son. The bug bit! But, I always hear (and feel) the same complaint that there are never any cute clothes for boys. No more whining allowed!! After searching and scouring for cute patterns, Figgy’s and Sewing for Boys takes the cake. Won’t my little man (and the one on the way) be such trendsetters!?! I can’t wait to get crackin’ on these patterns. Kudos to the designers!

  528. Corrie says:

    Wow! So fun. I can’t wait to sew some cute things for my two boys.

  529. Tara says:

    I love this! FINALLY…. more stuff to sew for boys! I have 2 boys and 1 girl and I’m constantly sewing for my daughter and feeling like I’m leaving my boys out – Thank you!

  530. Mickie says:

    Awesome giveaway!! I would love this book for my boy! So many cute things to choose from!

  531. Rosie says:

    I would be sewing for my 4 year old son, he loves when I make stuff and usually exclaims “for me?!!” in such an excited way. I know all of these patterns would make him happy!

  532. Emily says:

    I just adore boy clothes and this is a fabulous book! I can’t wait to see it all!

  533. Liz M. says:

    What a great idea! I have a daughter and a niece that I sew for all the time but feel like I neglect my 3 nephews in the homemade goodies department. It is kind of tricky to find cute easy to make pattens for anything other than jammies. I can’t wait to get sewing for them! And just in time for Christmas too!

  534. Nicole says:

    I have 3 boys myself and would love to be able to finally add some handmade articles to their wardrobes.

  535. Kristin says:

    My little boy is desperately in need of some new clothes, all his pants are too short – this book would be perfect!

  536. Erin says:

    Finally! And thank goodness the sizing goes up to 7 years! Looking forward to sewing all kinds of cute clothes for my 3-year-old for years to come.

  537. Rebecca says:

    Wow! This is the book I’ve been waiting for, but haven’t realised. I have a 3 year old and another baby on the way and I am SO BORED by the boy’s clothes available out there. It would be such fun to pick out fabrics with my son and make EXACTLY what he would like. I’ll be buying this anyway but winning it would be even better. I think my first project would be this adorable coat, just in time for Autumn!

  538. Candi says:

    I would be sewing for the (little) man in my life. He’s going to be a year old soon and this would be perfect to make him some stylish fall clothes!

  539. Christine says:

    These patterns are adorable! I make so many outfits for my eleven granddaughters,and have been disappointed by the patterns for boys. How nice to make cute things for my little guys, too. I’ll definitely be buying this book!

  540. Em says:

    I have a couple of Patterns by Figgy and I love how easy to follow they are. I must admit, I’m a little bit scared of that welt pocket you posted, but I’m sure with great directions, I could knock it out.

  541. Christina says:

    Karen is honestly one of the nicest people around. I’m so happy that she’s produced such a great book and even though I have a girl, I’m getting a copy!

  542. Lynn says:

    I’ve been looking for a book like this! I would love to make some things for my grandson!!

  543. Erin d. says:

    Id love this! For my 2 yo son! I have not made him anything since he was in onesies because i could never find anything that i thought was worth all the time when he grows so fast! Love the look of some of these pieces, especially the coat!!!! Thanks for the chance!

  544. Barbara says:

    I LOVE sewing for my boys!!! My son even has his own sewing machine to sew right along with me! Its so refreshing to see an entire book devoted to sewing for boys!!

  545. Jessica says:

    I would love to have this for my son. All the patterns look amazing!

  546. Laurie says:

    Love this book! I have a 4yr old grandson, and he’d look so darling in that barn coat! LOVE to sew these projects for him!

  547. Jacki says:

    Awesome! I saw this book on Amazon the other day and it looks fantastic! Like you said, just what a crafty mom with boys has been wishing and hoping for! I would love to try out all the patterns, and with two boys ages 4 & 2, this book would work for years to come!

  548. Amanda says:

    I NEED this book! It looks great and my boy grows so fast that I love the range of sizes!

  549. Cherie says:

    I am so excited to finally see a sewing for boys book! I love patterns by figgy’s and have their franco & fiona pattern on my wishlist. Thanks for the review of this book!

  550. Briana Reigel says:

    Dang I missed it πŸ™ My son would absolutely love all of this. I love making him clothing. And because he is only two he pretty much loves everything I make him as long as its comfy πŸ™‚ I do believe I will be purchasing this book!

  551. Deanna says:

    My little boy has become big, but I do have three nephews…

  552. Cathy says:

    This is great! My son just turned 4 and I would sew for him from this book. He says he’d like the pj’s!

  553. TracyLea says:

    My son is 18 months old and I have been so disappointed in the patterns available for boys. Sure comfy tee shirt pants and okay but what about big boy clothes? I am expecting his little sister in November and see there is no shortage of adorable patterns for her. This book looks amazing. It would be pretty awesome to win it

  554. Rebecca says:

    I would love this! I have an 18 month old son and have found that boys really get the short shrift when it comes to cute styles.

  555. Rachael says:

    AHHHHHH!!!!!! I’m so freaking excited about this book!!!!! (can you guess) I have a little boy, only 3 1/2 months, but finding good stuff to sew for him, and hte right fabrics and patterns is so frustrating. It seems that the sewing world is all for girls and women, including hte hobby, the fabrics and the patterns. I will try and be patient, should I win this book, but I”m tempted to go spend my play money on it right now!

  556. Paula in NH says:

    I would love to have this book to sew clothes from oh-so-handsome grandson. He would love the jacket and the robe and all of the patterns in this book.

  557. Jayne says:

    What a great book! I am sure there is a huge market out there for boy things. There was years and years and years ago when my son was small…..good luck with this!

  558. Holly U says:

    Yay! A book for BOYS! So needed. I have a Patterns by Figgy pattern and it’s great. This book will be on my Christmas list.

  559. Annette says:

    Would love to sew some things for my son and little nephew.

  560. Kandace says:

    I’m excited about this book! I’m always looking for patterns to use to make things for my 2 year old son.

  561. Michelle says:

    This would be wonderful! I’m always on the lookout for boy projects for my two little guys (4 and 2). Girl stuff is so easy to find and so easy to make. Skirts? Dresses? Simple. It’s hard to find cute and classic things for boys.

  562. Laurie says:

    With my 4th grandson on the way, I am always on the look out for cute sewing projects for my little guys. This book looks like just the thing I need to gear them up right!

  563. Absolutly LOVE the treasure pocket pants… cute, awesome to finally have a boy book!!

  564. Kate clarence says:

    I often feel that my son (Eli, 2 years) makes me more girly! I love to get behind my sewing machine and whip up little creations for him, and I bet this book would keep me inspired for anymore years (and children!)

  565. Katharine says:

    What a great book! Thanks for the chance to win!

  566. Katy says:

    I would sew for my two grandsons. Boy patterns are hard to find and I feel like I could do so much more sewing for them with the patterns in the book. Thanks

  567. MJ says:

    I am so glad that this book exists!! If I don’t win, I’m absolutely going to buy it. Boys need cute clothes too!!!

  568. MamaBee says:

    Oh my goodness I want that book. I’ve been wanting to sew for my little fella but have a major creativity block and am feeling rather uninspired lately. Thank you for posting this!

  569. Adelle says:

    This would be great! I have a little boy and the only patterns I can find are for little girls! These patterns look awesome!

  570. Amy A says:

    Wonderful! My son is 6 and I have really struggled to find fun things to sew up for him. This book looks like it could be just what I’ve been looking for! We live in Texas so fall/winter isn’t so much about coats so the hoodie looks like just the ticket!

  571. Megan says:

    I would sew for my little guy who is 1 1/2 years old. I love that there is finally a collection of patterns just for little boys!

  572. carein says:

    I have a 7 month old grandson and I am so looking forward to sewing for him like I did his father. I love Sea for boys book, I need to win! Thank you for the oppotunity.

  573. Steph says:

    Finally–a sewing book for boys clothes! I have a 4-year-old son and am always disappointed with the clothing selection in stores and the limited patterns to choose from. (We just looked at Halloween patterns this weekend–almost everything is for girls!) At least there are some fabulous bloggers out there who share their wonderful ideas for sewing boys clothes. I would love to have this book!

  574. Emma N says:

    I’ve got three little nephews on my Christmas list this year (one’s brand new!), so I’d love to be able to give them each something hand-made.

  575. Leanna says:

    I have a 1.5 yo and always looking for new, cute things. What a great book!

  576. KateIsCrafty says:

    My son is 6 years old and I would love to make clothes for him! I also have 2 little nephews who are toddlers & this would give me some great options for them.

  577. Melissa says:

    I chose not to find out the sex of my baby before he was born, but was convinced he was a girl. For 9 months I dreamed of all the cute dresses, etc. I would soon sew. Imagine my surprise when “she” turned into a he! I’ve checked out all the books the library has on sewing for children, and they are all skewed toward girls’ clothing. I’ve had some success browsing online, but I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE a book chock-full of clothes for my little man!

  578. Heather J. says:

    I have been anxiously awaiting this book since I first heard about it last spring. I’m so excited to finally get my hands on a copy–would love to win one!

  579. natalie says:

    not sure why it took so long for a boys sewing book to come out, but glad it came out when it did! been trying to find more fun stuff to sew for my son! he’s not even 8mo yet, but i have lots of visions of cute stuff dancing in my head!

  580. Suzanne says:

    My 2 sons need longer tops than bottoms so handmade PJs are a must (and preferred by both). I’d love to sew for them rather than hoping Grandma has time in her busy schedule. And I know the patterns in this book are way cooler than anything I can try to whip up from existing clothing. πŸ™‚ I also have several friends with 2 boys that will appreciate handmade items.

  581. susan hwang says:

    i haveee to have this book – it has such classic designs! thanks for the giveaway!

  582. I have 2 boys to sew for and I can’t wait to try these out. I want to make the hoodie and several of the pants. Great job ladies… I love Figgy’s patterns!

  583. Kristi F says:

    I would love to make pretty much everything in this book for my almost 2 yr old!

  584. Connie Jagolinzer says:

    After years of sewing for my girls, we were finally gifted with a little man. He turns 2 soon and finding cute patterns has been a real challenge. I would love to have a book of cute boy clothing patterns to keep him looking dapper! Thanks for the opportunity!

  585. Suzanne says:

    This is timely. I just started cutting flannel for pajama pants for my two boys. There is such a dearth of patterns for them so it’s exciting to discover this new book!

  586. Mrs. Not the Jet Set says:

    I’m loving this book! I have all nephews and spend more time looking for cute patterns and ideas then actually sewing for them. What a great resource!

  587. angie says:

    Oh I’m dying to see this book! my boy needs some new clothes!

  588. Jodie says:

    Oh awesome – there’s so much for girls but very little good stuff for boys out there.

  589. meghann says:

    Oh! Look! How wonderful! I’ll have to get my hands on a copy of this book, if I don’t win one here… My poor son is so neglected because my daughter has so many lovely hand-sewn things & he has…a pair of pants… Ha! Thanks for the chance! xo

  590. Larissa says:

    I only have nephews, no nieces! So much is made for girls, I’d love to have a book for boys.

  591. Sophie says:

    It is fantastic to see a book just for the boys and I would love to put my stash to good use on some (or all!) of these patterns. Boys need clothes too!

  592. Anie says:

    I would sew for my two boys, 2 and 4 years old.

  593. Mari says:

    Two grandsons (2 month old and 2 year old) are the reason I would sew these amazing patterns! Stores have so much for girls and so little for boys! My search has ended!! Hooray!

  594. Joan J says:

    I am SO delighted to see a book FINALLY about sewing for boys. I’m a grandmother to a 5 yr old boy and a 2 week old girl, and already I’ve sewn 10 times more outfits for the baby girl, simply because I can’t find anything worth sewing for the boy! You can only create so many pajama bottom style pants! Most of the store-bought patterns result in a piece of clothing I could buy at Wally-World for half the price, so it’s not worth the effort. I’m already loving the little corduroy shirt jacket. This book is going to be a MUST HAVE for me!

  595. Jess says:

    Wow, that jacket is amazing!!!!

    I have two boys; unfortunately my eldest is too big for this book now (he wears a size 8-10), but I have a 2yo who would get a LOT of new wardrobe items out of a book like this!!!


  596. Stephanie Wehrman says:

    I have 3 boys and always end up sewing things for friends and family’s girls because I can’t figure out what to sew for my boys! They will be pumped!

  597. The cover alone is irresistible – spot on, and three cheers for sewing for boys! Thanks Shelly & Karen for this work of love, of boys. For my nephews, finally, handmade gifts that they would actually wear!

  598. Anne Marie says:

    Great book – I have three little grandsons and this would be so much fun – would make them all sorts of goodies!

  599. Stefanie N says:

    I would sew for my 3 year old son. I can not tell you how long i’ve waited to see something like this! Hope I win!!!

  600. Ms.Cleaver says:

    I don’t really have any little boys to sew for yet. But I’ve been stashing up tons of boy fabrics for years, in the hopes that I someday would!

  601. Egle says:

    I’m so glad there is such book. I have two boys 4 and 1,5 years old. This summer tried to sew pants and ties for the wedding. I’m so excited to do that and to be pruod to say that I did it when somebody asks where I have bought it. I would love so much to get a copy of this book to sew more clothes for my precious boys by myself.

  602. Lisa Pope says:

    looks like a great book! It is so hard to find things for boys…I have a son and a nephew I love to sew for!

  603. Denise says:

    Love this. It isn’t easy to find good items for the little boys!

  604. Egle says:

    I’m so glad there is such book. I have two boys. This summer tried to sew pants and ties for the wedding. I’m so excited to do that and to be pruod to say that I did it when somebody asks where I have bought it. I would love so much to get a copy of this book to sew more clothes for my precious boys by myself.

  605. Heathir says:

    My son would go crazy if I could sew more for him.

  606. Natalie says:

    My handsome just-turned-two-year-old-but-still-momma’s-baby would look wear those sweet duds so well. I feel like I have been waiting for this book for two years and nine months! πŸ™‚

  607. Sheryl says:

    I would LOVE to have this book to sew clothes for my son! These patterns are awesome!

  608. mhochdrei says:

    Ohhh… I would love to win a copy of the book. I sew for two li ttle girls… but i don’t like these sweet-pink-sugar-stylish things, so often the designs for boys seem much more interesting.

  609. chickarina says:

    Great boy patterns! I am really looking forward to checking this book out!

  610. Kathe G says:

    So long overdue! I remember making shirts for my dad – 6’5″ – and had to lengthen so that he would finally have shirts that fit. My nephew came along and there were no boy clothes for him. My grandsons came along and some were in and now I have great grandsons (I’m really not that old – married into an established family – lol). I am so happy there is now someone who put this together. Thanks.

  611. Ashley says:

    Oooh! I have a similar book for my daughter, but have been looking for something like this for my son! If I don’t win (which I hope I do!), I think I see a shopping trip coming up!

  612. Bead says:

    This book is great. I finally have a grandson and would love to try some of these clothes for him as he grows. I especially like the jacket.

  613. Sarah says:

    This is the book I have been waiting for since the day my son was born almost two years ago. It’s funny because he loves anything I make for him, but finding sewing patterns for little boys is nigh impossible! I hope I win, but if I don’t I will definitely be buying a copy. Thank you for bringing it into my life, either way!

  614. erinmalia says:

    After having my second son last month, this couldn’t come at a better time. I’m sure my husband could benefit from it too. Ha.

  615. Nana (Patty Cowherd) says:

    This book looks like so much fun! I raised two boys and struggled with finding cute patterns. I have enjoyed sewing for my two granddaughters, but now we are hoping our grandchild due in March will be a boy. I would love to have this book to sew for him (or her!)

  616. Kate says:

    Brilliant! My best friend has a little boy and I have struggled to sew as much for him as I do for 2 other friends who have little girls. He’ll be thrilled to see the book πŸ™‚

    Also – great job on the welt pockets. The jacket looks great.

  617. Cynthia Jackson says:

    I love to sew for my grandkids just like I did for my son, This will be a nice addition to the summer patterns I used for my son.

  618. J Sims says:

    How fun, my first great-grandson is a boy, going to be 4!!! this year and starting pre-school. I sewed for all my children, and his mama, my first grandchild, now I can sew for him, since he’s a big boy now! not a baby. Gavin’s oma, Jeannine

  619. Kris says:

    This book looks great, I would love to try making that jacket!! I love the books out there for girls things but it’s great to see one for boys!

  620. Alice S says:

    This looks wonderful and (assuming that I don’t win) the book will go on my Christmas wish list. With 2 boys, I’m always looking for cute things to make for them. There’s no trouble fiding more than enough patterns and fabrics for my daughter.

  621. Kimberly L says:

    I would love this book! All of the patterns would look great on my little guy!

  622. Stephanie says:

    Mothers of boys (like myself) must be jumping for joy over a book just for their little guys! I would love to make some treasure pocket pants for my rockstickleavescritters collectors!

  623. Jamie Fukofuka says:

    I would love to have this! Yesterday my son (4 yrs old) just asked me to make him a shirt!!! Now I have an idea where to start!

  624. Megan says:

    I have several friends with baby girls and it’s always a breeze finding patterns to sew stuff for them, but for the friend who has a boy, I have struggled to find anything! I would love to win this!!

  625. Sarah says:

    Love this book! As a mom of four boys I’m so excited to see collections of patterns like this. In the 20 years since having my first boy it’s been a long haul of very few patterns to choose from. Now though, sewing for my 2 year old and 11 month old is a lot more fun than it was way back when for my now 20 and 16 year olds when they were small. How cute would the boys be in matching fall coats?!?

  626. Libby says:

    I luv sewing children clothes, so many cute things for girls..excited to see other things for boys then jon-jon suits,My grandsons need this book!!

  627. Tara Faul says:

    I am dying to get this book, but I don’t even have boys! I have a 12 month old and 2.5 year old girl, and won’t hesitate to make these things for them with feminine touches.

  628. Nettie says:

    I’d love this book! I’ve been used to only girls in the family for so long, and now there are two boys – one baby and one toddler now, and I’d love to sew fabulous things for them.

  629. Maria says:

    This looks fabulous! It’s always so easy to find little frilly patterns for my daughter, but nothing for my son. And he’s only 2 1/2, so there would be many years of putting this book to use. Yay!

  630. Laurie says:

    After the arrivals of my first two nephews in the spring, I’ve been on the lookout for cool presents to make for my boys. Slim pickin’s out there for clothing patterns. This book is just what I need.

  631. Kelly says:

    I love this book! I was just out looking for cute boy patterns yesterday and I didn’t find anything. Would love to make some cute things for my 8 month old!

  632. MaryBeth says:

    It’s so hard to find cute patterns for little boys. Thank you Figgy for this book. Right now, I’m crocheting a fireman hat for my grandson that I found on the internet. LOVE the internet for inspiration.

  633. Ellen says:

    Well, I sew for my 10 month old girl, but I like to dress her in practical clothing! While dresses and skirts CAN be practical, they are often not. Also, I want clothes that are good for handing down in case I have a boy next!

  634. Heather Floyd says:

    This book looks fabulous! I have three boys and have been searching for some wonderful things to sew for them and there are limited amounts of cute things to sew for boys.
    Happy Sewing,

  635. Pam says:

    I have three Patterns by Figgy’s. ‘Dapper Dillinger Trousers’ is an easy pair of pants with a flat front. The pants I made looked great.’Mary Go Round’ I finished today; a quick and easy pattern. I’m looking forward to making the ‘Beach Bum Hoodie & Board Shorts’. I would LOVE to have ‘Sewing For Boys’!!! I know the patterns in the book would be just as easy to follow, producing great looking clothes.

  636. Tanya says:

    Oh this book looks great. I have lots of patterns for my daughter but next to none for my soon to be one year old. This would be great!

  637. Tammy says:

    What a cute book! I’d love to win it. I’ve always been stumped when it comes to sewing for little guys.

  638. Robin says:

    I sew for my grandsons. would love some new projects from the book!

  639. Patti Bevans says:

    I dream of sewing for my 3 and 5 year old sons. This book eould provide lots of inspiration!

  640. Gina says:

    Oh my goodness SOOO excited!!! I have two little boys who LOVE it when I sew for them! πŸ™‚ (ok, so only one of them really cares right now as the younger is only 4 months old, but he’ll care soon too! lol πŸ˜‰

  641. Kim Munoz says:

    There are sooooo many books for litttle girls but none for boys until now! And what I could find was too baby-ish!!! My son will be 5 soon and I would love to make him some “cool” clothes. That jacket is too stinking cute and I would LOVE to have this book!!

  642. Kelly Jo says:

    I’d definitely sew for my son. I’ve been sewing dresses and cute little skirts for my daughter for some time now, but finding boys stuff is hard! These patterns are so cute in an adorable little boy way! A lot of the boy patterns I see I would never bother to make for my son because they seem so silly!

  643. Christine says:

    I am so so happy to see a pattern book for boys; there are so many cute patterns for girls but for boys it is almost impossible to find! Mine is 2 and really needs some new pants!

  644. Jolene says:

    I am sooooo glad there is finally a book JUST FOR BOYS. Having two boys myself, I’m always looking out for great patterns, and this book, in one way or another, is coming home to my library very soon!

  645. Caroline says:

    What a wonderful book – with a 3yo son and 3 month old twin boys I have plenty of sewing for boys that I could be doing…just need to find the magic time fairy to help me along too!

  646. Dianne says:

    I have 3 boys and have always wanted to sew something for them. I do some fixing of pants and shirts but that’s about it. A lot of patterns out there are not practical for my boys. This pattern book would be great! Thanks to the ladies who created this!

  647. Deb Cameron says:

    Ooohhh, squeee, I have been patiently waiting for this book to be available. I do hope to win, but if not it will be a must have in my house full of little boys under 4. Thanks for such a lovely sewing book made just for us Mums and our boys!

  648. patricia says:

    This is wonderful, my grandson “E” is always disturbed that I haven’t sewn anything for him. Sewing world has come into the new world, YES, boys should be able to have more than just those blues and browns, those jeans, jerseys and sweatshirts that you find in the department stores. As of late there have been new fabric lines devoted to boys themes… I am so impressed, thank-you, Shelly Figueroa and Karen LePage. “E”‘s birthday is in October..I think it would be a wonderful present if I wrapped a copy of this book in some of the new fabric we purchased together at a LQS in his town..He can pick an outfit from his own pattern book! We can spend the weekend sewing, he loves to help MeMa sew (Nothing to do with MeMa or sewing, it is a machine that facinates him) !!!WOW!!!!

  649. bernadette says:

    great patterns. it’s not easy to find “cool” patterns for boys! i would be sewing for my uber cool grandson……he will be three on st patrick’s day. thanks for the give a way!! the book will be used and will keep my sewing machine hummimg!

  650. Kelly R says:

    Looks like fun! Can’t wait to get my hands on it.

  651. Judy D. says:

    how exciting to see a whole book for boys! i would love to sew more for my son.

  652. Bernadette says:

    I have two boys and then had a little girl. I got back into sewing to make things for her, but I would love to have some great patterns to sew for my two big boys. Love that jacket.

  653. I love sewing for my 2yo boy. I’m really looking forward to seeing all the things I can make for him in this book! It’s on my Christmas list.

  654. Karen Lambert says:

    I would love to have this book. I have 3 grandsons to sew for. Drake is 4, Adler is 3, and Tate is 11 months. It would be awesome to have this as inspiration.

  655. Toni says:

    What a great book! I have 2 boys and I’m always looking for new things to sew for them.

  656. Cranky Apricot says:

    I’ve been itching to sew for my nephew, but the options for boys have been so limited until now!

  657. Jill B says:

    Wow! I love the coat you made and all the meaning in the lining, buttons, etc. I would sew for my 4 year old, who is always asking when I’ll sew something for HIM.

  658. Tatiana says:

    ohhh … what a good idea of sewing a book for boys! it’s so hard to find good patterns!!

  659. Can’t wait to see this book! Should be great!

  660. Patti Vynanek says:

    I don’t have a boy to sew for (yet…) but, like you said, girls can wear these things, too! My daughter turns one this week and I have been sewing some dresses for her. it will be nice to have this book for making play clothes and pjs πŸ™‚

  661. Rita says:

    Oh oh oh oh! I would love this! I have two girls and love sewing for them, but I’m expecting a boy now and this book sounds perfect!

  662. Catherine says:

    What a fantastic jacket! I am super pumped to have a book just for boys instead of the usual book for kids that has maybe two things for boys tucked in the back. I have a four year old and a six year old who both love handmade clothes and this would help me make more than basic pants.

    Thanks for the chance!

  663. Asta says:

    This is such an important book, I find sewing for boy very challenging, there’s a lot of fabrics and prints and patterns and jsut stuff for girls and feel neglecting the male side.

  664. shannon says:

    *sigh* i wish i was sewing and this book was available when my boys were young. they are 11 and 15. i would love a book for boys this age! πŸ™‚ i guess i will have to sew for my friend’s baby boy. πŸ™‚

  665. Olja says:

    Few of my dearest friends have boys. I always knit for them, but it would be great to sew something from this book!

  666. Max says:

    For two years now I’ve been so frustrated with the lack of BOYS clothes available to buy and patterns to make. I use my kid’s old clothes to make new patterns for himself, but I am SO excited for this book! I can’t wait to make that jacket and the pjs are wayyy too cute!

  667. Pamela says:

    This book sounds fantastic! My little man loves it when I make things for him!

  668. Sydney says:

    This couldn’t have come at a better time! Both of my sister-in-laws are having little boys as is a family friend! And now my other nephew won’t feel left out. This is definitely going on the wishlist!

  669. That was an top post. BTW IÒ€ℒve bookmarked <a href="“>Sewing For Boys ~ Review + Giveaway Sew,Mama,Sew! Blog at πŸ˜‰

  670. Louise says:

    I’ve been waiting for this book to come out! I sew all my boys’ pants and shorts, but I’d love the chance to branch out– this looks pretty great.

  671. Mar says:

    Finally here! As soon as I read your post in FB I clicked on it! My 4 year old boy will be delighted that I stop making dresses and skirts for a while. He is always asking? “Y para mi que mami?” And for me, what mummy? So thanks for sharing and I really hope I win this time!!!

  672. HelenH says:

    Finally! A book about sewing for boys! I have a 3yr old son and a 5yr old son, a new nephew and two more nephews on the way. Most of all though, I love sewing for my boys and they love having mummy-made things. I actually haven’t seen any patterns by figgy before, but would love to give them a go.

  673. Valerie miller says:

    I have a little boy due in a few weeks and as of now he will be wearing his sisters pink hand me downs!

  674. Tas says:

    Alas, this book comes too late for my oldest boy. But his younger brother and sister would benefit from these patterns. Of course, girl versions would have to involve pink…

  675. Lixa says:

    i’ll be sewing for my 2 boys, that’s for sure!

  676. Meg says:

    I would love to get a copy of this book! I love Patterns by Figgy, their patterns are always super easy to follow. I have several nephews that would benefit from me getting this book:).

  677. Gwen says:

    I don’t know what size the patterns start at but I’m expecting a little man around Christmas so this book would be perfect! It’s great to see some more boy patterns out there, and especially a whole book dedicated to them πŸ™‚

  678. miiko says:

    Glad to find patterns for boys. Hope to win this and start making clothings for my boys.

  679. stacey says:

    I have been sewing too much for my daughter.
    I wish i can win and make outfits for my 2 boys!

    Would live this book to make things for my son who just turned four months old on Friday and my nephews who are 2 and four. Amazon has been recommending this book to me for weeks (maybe because of orange diaper cover purchased??), so I just added to my wish list! Thanks for the chance to win.

  681. debra says:

    Oh i was so tired of boring clothes for my little one i ‘tried’ to sew something with a little imagination. This was a few years ago now and things have changed a little. However, now that i have two little grand boys i would love to make more imaginative classy robes for them to clothe their little bodies…what a great book..thank you for the opportunity!

  682. Drea says:

    Yay! The second I found out I was having a boy (3 years ago now) I was SO excited to set up his nursery and get shopping! …then I saw what was available and was more than disappointed! I’m so happy to see more and more great things for boys out there while he’s still young! I cannot wait to see more of this book — thank you so much for the giveaway!

  683. KD-Quilts says:

    I love this book. When I found put I was having a boy I was a little sad because I thought of all the stuff I could sew for a girl and not a lot for a girl. Turns out there’s lots to make for a boy and this book will make it even easier! Thanks!

  684. Jess says:

    I have struggled to find funky patterns for my boys (4 and 7) and have resorted to using one or two daggy patterns, but this book looks awesome! So glad someone has realised its not just pretty little dresses that people want to make!

  685. KD-Quiltd says:

    I love this book. When I found put I was having a boy I was a little sad because I thought of all the stuff I could sew for a girl and not a p

  686. Cat says:

    wow, it looks great ! what is the age range for the patterns ? (I have 3 boys between 4 and 9!!)

  687. Jen says:

    Not only will I be sewing for my son (age 2) but I will be sewing for my daughter (age 7) who is a complete tom boy. I have had about 5 years of wanting to make things for her but she would turn her nose up at almost anything I suggested. To top it all off, ALL of my siblings and cousins children are boys and I love to give them handmade gifts for their birthdays and this book is out just in time to start on all their christmas presents.

  688. wow! sewing for boys is always tricky and at times boring! i would love to sew for my best friend’s son as she always enquirers as to why i deck my darling princess and he stands out as so sombre!

  689. Bernice says:

    I would sew for my son. He’s the one who encouraged me to start sewing! He said, “mommy, you could learn how to sew” when I asked him what I was going to do with all my time when he went to school.

  690. AJ says:

    My just-turned-2-year-old loves to wear what Mummy makes! Hope I can win a copy to make some more thiings for him!

  691. Ambrosia says:

    I have three boys and one more boy due in November. I have a very hard time finding good, classic looking patterns for them! As much as they love anything I create for them, I know we’d all love to have this book to help!

  692. Katrin says:

    I’d definitely sew for my nephew (5y) and my son (7m) when he’s a bit older.
    There aren’t many nice sources for sewing (or knitting) boy’s stuff, everything I see is pink and has ruffles…
    Good to see someone took care of that!

  693. Palila says:

    My cousin and neighbor both have little boys, and I’m all out of ideas of things to make for them! The little girls in my life have lots of options, but the boys… I’m stumped.
    Plus, we don’t know if the kiddo joining us in a couple of months is a boy or girl, and it deserves the same sewing goodness either way!

  694. Hueisei says:

    Wow. Nice projects to work with.. thanks for a chance to win! I loves to win it for my boy..

  695. Elisha niven says:

    That coat is AMAZING! All of the patterns would be fantastic for my little Hurley Burley Boy. Only 3 hours to make a coat, that is wonderful.

  696. wow, this book fills a glaring gap in the market, a fan of figgy’s, i had been hoping they were cooking up a book. And what a book it is too. There just hasnt been alot of choice out there for boys. I’ve mainly patched together my own patterns for my son, i make alot of his clothes and this book would get me tackling the trickier that gorgeous coat(3 hours. really!?). Must review this one for my blog. Lots of l’il boys with crafty mama’s out there! Thanks for spreading the word.

  697. Can’t wait till I can get my hands on this book ! My little man is 7 years already and he’s loved the clothes I’ve made for him but I’m always looking for new patterns so I’m so looking forward to this book.

  698. omgosh, this is exactly what I need. I had be beautiful baby boy at the beginning of August, boys clothes are so bland in the shops :-(( (here’s my boy

    x GS

  699. YC says:

    “…happy you are to FINALLY have a book full of cute patterns for boys.” pretty much sums it up. Cute looks for my 14 mo old boy!

  700. Annipanni says:

    All my friends are having baby boys, cannot wait to sew for them!

  701. Christina says:

    Looks like a lovely book indeed. I love classic clothes for boys, but they tend to cost a fortune. I hate clothes that are covered in logo’s and brands. This book is the perfect solution. πŸ™‚

  702. gaby says:

    Yay! Finally a book for boys. My son is 4 and I always find it hard to find things to sew for him. Most books have lots of girly patterns but not much for boys.

  703. Kathrin says:

    Oh, I love the pictures from the book above…!
    my son is almost 4 years old and there are only patterns for under 3 years available… I would love to win the book!

  704. Sarrah says:

    I love this book! I’m always conscious of the fact I sew way more for my daughter than my son. I’m afraid he’ll feel slighted even though I would really LOVE to sew for him, it’s simply just hard to find great boy patterns. I can’t wait to make him his own adorable coat!

  705. daniela says:

    sewing for kids, i love all the tips and patterns i can get

  706. I would just LOVE to have this book to sew some things for my 5 year old (& his 1 year old sister). I really am in love with the raglan tee pattern. I have used that one at least 5 times!

  707. laura reich says:

    Oh my word, I have 3 little boys and even they have noticed all things cute are for girls. They beg me to make them stuff too, but it’s so hard to find anything worth the time and effort.
    This is awesome!

  708. Stephanie F says:

    Wow, this book looks awesome. I have 2 sons (baby & toddler) and would love to make the items in the book for them. It is really difficult to find cute boy patterns. Thanks for a chance to win!

  709. Madla says:

    Great news, sewing for boys definately lacks interesting inspiration (at least here in the Czech Rep.-a lot of books worth buying must be imported). I have an almost two year old, so far sewed a couple of really basic summer pants for him and I love to have fun with appliques that can make something really special out of an ordinary garment. Happy sewing everyone!

  710. Malia Blossom says:

    Our little guy is arriving soon…(35 weeks pregnanat and counting!) I have just taken up sewing again about 2 months ago in preparation for our little man. I would love to have this book! My aspiration is to be able to hand make our son’s entire wardrobe.

  711. Ana says:

    I will sew for my boys (2 and 5 years old) and of course I am really excited about the release of this book. A must have!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  712. Rebmara says:

    Wow! This looks good!

  713. Christy says:

    As a mom of 4 little boys ages 8 and under, I NEED this book! Great find.

  714. Jen says:

    Very cool- lots of great ideas!

  715. gali says:

    i have 3 boys! πŸ™‚
    i’d love to have cool patterns to sew from.

  716. Janice says:

    Yay little boy clothes! I have a 20 month old boy, and am due December 9 with my second boy, I would definately be able to put this book to use for years to come πŸ™‚ its so nice that designers and authors are filling that niche of cute, modern, fun things for boys! It’s nice to have some hip, trendy, super cute options that don’t require shelling out buco bucks at a boutique store. I hope I win!

  717. Melissa says:

    Oh I am a huge fan of Patterns by Figgy’s and I have definitely been waiting for a book like this to come out! My 4yo son has been getting a tad jealous of all the little dresses I’ve been making for my daughter so this book would be very much appreciated in our house.

  718. Stacey says:

    I would love love love to win this. I have two boys 4 & 2 that love watching me sew and love having things made for them. Rie, I know what you mean about limited boys clothes!

  719. Margaret says:

    My street is full of little boys, ages 1-3 years. I’m always looking for special things to make for them. This book is overdue for thoughtful, creative ideas!

  720. luann says:

    Wow, I love this! What a great idea.

    I have so many patterns for baby girls stuff but my son has lost out because the boys patterns always seemed so… plain. And re-using fabric from dad and grandpa’s clothes to make the jacket makes it a tear jerking treasure!

    Besides my boy I have a great-nephew, and another nephew on the way. What fun!

    Thanks for the chance, I hope I win!

  721. Tamera says:

    Finally, a sewing book focusing on boys, so exciting! I was just telling my DH about how all the books out there feature girly stuff. Now I can outfit my 1 yr old boyfor years to come!

  722. Stinne Caspersen says:

    I NEED to win this book! We live in Denmark with our two boys (and a Girl). Great patterns for boys are difficult to find. This book will never find its way to the Danish libery, so PLEACE let me win it :o)

  723. Rie says:

    What a great idea & long overdue. I’d sew & sew & sew for my 9mth old boy. You know I hate going into baby shops cos there are racks & racks of girls clothes… and only 1 rack for boys – why is that!!!!

  724. Neeza Zaini says:

    OMG, I want one. I sewed traditional Malay attires for my boys (hubby and son) and that is it. Hope fully this book can give me more idea to sew for my boys :))). Like 1000x!!!

  725. Jenniffer says:

    How exciting to finally see a book dedicated to sewing for boys. I have a new son and a nephew and it’s so hard to find sewing patterns for boys. So glad to see this.

  726. Marshall says:

    The pockets really do make the jacket. πŸ™‚ It looks adorable. I would sew for my nephew and friends until I have my own little boy to spoil. πŸ˜‰

  727. Serena says:

    Love that jacket. I was SO happy when I saw this had come out! It’s definitely filling a gap in the sewing book market. I’d sew for my nephew. πŸ™‚

  728. Rita says:

    PS – This is just TOO GOOD to not share, SEW…I posted it to my facebook page! :0)

  729. Bean says:

    this looks like such a fun book! I am always looking for new ideas to sew for my beautiful nephew πŸ™‚

  730. Bree says:

    I’ve been thinking for nearly 4 years that someone needed to write this book! (Since I had my son). Congratulations to the authors!

  731. Rita says:

    OMStars!!! FINALLY a comphrehensive book for the lil’ dudes in our lives!!! I am a mother to 3 boys (5, 18, 23…go ahead, chuckle) and YOUNG granny(44) to girl(4), boy(4mo), girl(almost 2weeks) and auntie to girl(12) & boy(8). I sew for all of them & would get LOTS of mileage out of this book!!! My fav is that jacket!!! It’d be SEW easy to whip it into a girlie one too. I’ve tried to be creative over the years for my boys but this one book has it all…no kidding when you say everything! WOW!!! If I won, the first thing would be the jacket for my 5yr old & then onto matching Christmas jammies for everyone…how FUN would that be!?! Even if I don’t win, I’ll be on the hunt for this one. Thanks for the opportunity & good luck to everyone entering!

  732. Annmarie says:

    That jacket is lovely! I have been so excited for this book, I have three boys and have found most sewing books to be woefully lacking for boys patterns. Thanks for the great review, I will definitely be picking this book up.

  733. ClaireM says:

    The patterns look awesome! The Big 4 pattern companies completely ignore boys and it drives me crazy. My little boy, 11months, would look super cute in that jacket that you made. I would love this book – thank you for the chance to win it.

  734. Dulcimer says:

    I would sew for my little boy, who was just born on Friday!

  735. Maddie says:

    My husband and I are adopting from Rwanda. I am excited to make some handmade boys clothes for our new baby boys! This would be an awesome book!!

  736. ivy says:

    I soo gotta have this book! I have a 9 month old that I love sewing for. I’d love for him to have a handmade by mommy wardrobe! The jacket with the welt pockets is adorable.. love it!

  737. Dawn says:

    YES!!! This book is great! I have two little boys under 3, and it’s hard to find cute patterns for them.

  738. Lynsey says:

    I’d love to win a copy of Sewing for Boys. My two boys are 4.5 and 2, and I love to make things for them. Everything in the shops is so samey samey, and I really struggle to find cute patterns for them, but these look fantastic! I’m a stay at home mum, so the budget isn’t always there for new clothes, but my stash of fabric is always at the ready!

  739. angelina says:

    finally… a book for boys. ive got two and would love this so so much for them. x

  740. Jen says:

    This book look so amazing! My son so needs those Treasure Pocket Pants!

  741. Kristy says:

    I can’t wait! I have a little boy & so many of the clothes are utterly boring. I can’t wait to sew some funky stuff for him.
