Sewing for Boys Book Review & Giveaway!!! [CLOSED]

[Thank you to everyone who entered the Sewing for Boys book giveaway.]

I’m so excited today to be included in the Sewing for Boys Book blog tour.  If you haven’t caught wind of it until now, the owners of Patterns by Figgy’s, Shelly and Karen, co-authored a book!  And I know you’ll be excited to hear that it’s all about sewing for boys (of course I’ve already picked out quite a few projects that will be fun to make for my girls, too).

They did a fantastic job of compiling an awesome collection of 24 projects geared towards sewing for boys, you know, the most neglected gender in the sewing realm.  I’m so happy because it falls at no better time than my cute little nephew, Grant’s first birthday!  I can’t imagine being able to resist sewing things for him.  It’s fun to dig through the ‘ol fabric stash and find some goodies and think of how he might look in them, start walking in them, throw food at his parents in them, you get the picture….

So here’s my version of the Easy Linen Shirt.  And guess what, it IS easy!  Probably the most fun and rewarding project I’ve made in a long time.  It required minimal effort and time to complete, has impeccable instructions, and is so cute!

I loved that they have all sorts of information on finishing seams, great techniques that you’ll use over and over again.

I can’t wait to sew up a couple pairs of Treasure Pocket Pants like Ashley, or maybe I’ll give myself a challenge with The Henry Shirt like Meg did.  Definitely go check out the screaming deal on their book over at amazon!

Ready to win a copy of Sewing for Boys for yourself???

I have two new baby boy cousin and a friend who just had a little boy and, like you said, there just aren’t very many good resources for sewing for boys.

I’m really interested in seeing what the writers of this book came up with!

  153. Marnie 09.09.2011 at 1:42 pm #

    Thanks for the chance to win this book. You are right, the boy is often overlooked when I think of sewing. My 3 girls always get something made for them, but not that poor boy in the middle. Thanks for the reminder to make him something. This book looks like just the right answer to start sewing for my boy!! LOVE your blog and thanks for the opportunity!! Marnie

  154. Michelle 09.09.2011 at 1:55 pm #

    Love the shirt that you made- great fabric choice! I think my first project will be the reversible coat.

    This book looks amazing!! I have tried to make shirts before for my husband and he has been a good sport with my adventures.

    This book would make him breathe a sigh of relief at the chance of getting a shirt that looks like a proper shirt.


  167. Kim @ craftyNHmom 09.09.2011 at 2:43 pm #

  177. Kelly O. 09.09.2011 at 3:00 pm #

    I have 2 little boys who would love it if I sewed for them! Maybe it would stop Callum from asking for a headband or a pillowcase dress for “him” all the time–because he sees that sissy asks for it and gets it–I don’t think he knows that mommy could actually sew something boyish! haha

  178. kirsten 09.09.2011 at 3:02 pm #

    I am dying for this book! I have two sweet boys I love to sew for, as well as one girl. She gets a lot more of the sewing love!

    Gosh I’d love to win this book! I’ve sewn lots of things for my daughter, but just can’t find the same range of patterns for my little boy. Thanks for setting this up.

    Hello Anna,
    I’m sewing since a few month. My mother gave me a sewing-course as a present.)
    When I have time – I sew! :-) It makes my head feeling well and I am happy because I have a product in spite of regeneration.
    On September 5th I got a nephew – Louis-Manou – he would be my next model for sewing.
    So it would be fantastic, if I could sew him things out of the book! :-)

    This book is filling a huge void in the sewing world. It’s going to be a HUGE hit I’m sure. I’d love to win one but it’s also one I’ll be buying if I don’t win. I have a new Grandson to be sewing things for and we have another Grandchild on the way although we don’t know which that one is yet.

    I have often said I’d get myself in SO much trouble if I had girls (spending too much money/time sewing stuff for them). But I’d sure love to be able to make some great pieces for my boys. My oldest is turning 3 on Monday… what a fun gift (in a roundabout way) for him!

  218. JanetK 09.09.2011 at 5:32 pm #

    It always seems easy to find patterns for little girl’s clothing, but I have a friend with a little boy that I never sew for because it seems impossible to find a decent clothing project for him! I’d love to win this book. :) Thank you!

    I’ve been saying for years someone should do something about the “HUGE” lack of fun,stylish and easy-to-make, clothes patterns for boys. My Grandson is 10 now and he still loves it when I sew for him. Thanks, cyndylouquilts{at}yahoo{dot}com

  239. Max 09.09.2011 at 8:18 pm #

    And sometimes I find it more fun to sew stuff for other people besides our family members.. kind of gives you a proud moment when you see them using the gift you created for them.

    Ah buttonless boy shirts. Perfect for the active 4 yr old bush boy who needs a change of shirt before he can leave home just about every time! The treasure pants sound like another ‘need’ for this boy too. I’d really love to win this book and thanks for the opportunity to do so :D.

  245. Jackie @ Fred-and-Cissy 09.09.2011 at 9:20 pm #

    From what I’ve seen this book is fantastic! Maybe it’ll get me into boy sewing mode finally (feeling a bit bad that I rarely make them anything)!

    I would love to win this book- my little boy needs some cute Momma made things :)

    Super snazzy shirt! And you’re so right about boys being sadly neglected in the sewing world. This book looks fab!

    I would love to win this book as I have a very active three-year-old who loves me to make him clothes (he has asked me to knit another green cardie for him already!). It’s also quite difficult to get sewing books dedicated purely to making boys clothes. Plus I’d like to have a go at the shirt which looks great by the way!

    I really enjoy your blog, and have followed a couple of your incredibly clear tutorials (the nursery teachers at my son’s school got the ruffled purse, the other year:). I have started sewing for myself and would love to find some clear patterns for boys (I only have my Mother-in-Law’s vintage patterns at the moment). Thanks for the chance:)

    Comment! This pattern is great! I would love to try it with a ribbon at the very top in front to tie it up. I think it would be charming just to have the ribbon dangling there.

    This book sounds like a perfect way to sew stylish clothes for my growing brood of grandsons. Having the same pattern featured in several sizes make it possible to sew similar outfits for all of the boys without breaking the bank. sj_supp[@][]
