A lot of people ask me this question, "Do you sew for boys?"
I have a little girl, and I sew for her. A lot. I offer my little creations at local markets. Most of them are outfits for girls.
But do I sew for boys? I hope this is an acceptable answer :)
This shirt is for a little boy who is just about to turn one. His mum asked me if I could make something with the Very Hungry Caterpillar. So, While she was sleeping, I made a shirt using a Going To Safari pattern by Puperita.
I have only made a collar once before... some 20 years ago, at school... I didn't have a lot of fabric with the hungry caterpillar and I was a bit nervous I could ruin it, so I made a practice shirt. As you do haha The collar on the practice shirt turned out pretty cute, so I cut into fabric with the hungry caterpillar.
My sewing OCD kicked in something shocking while I was making a pocket for the shirt. I could not have a mismatched pocket, so I spent a little time (and a little fabric) to match the print perfectly. I thought the front of the shirt was perfect, too... until I sewed on the buttons and realised it was a bit off centre... Oops... Next time it will match perfectly - I promise!
Going To Safari is yet another great pattern designed by Puperita. To date, I used five of her patterns, and I am very happy with them.
So, do you sew for boys?
