I sure love all this Back to School sewing I’ve been doing, especially the chance to get some boy sewing done! Today I’m on the Back to School Blog Tour hosted by Lulu and Celeste and Sprouting JubeJube. Of course, there’s lots of prizes and discounts for you, too!
This little guy can’t wait to head back to pre-school in a couple of weeks. He’ll be doing it in comfy style thanks to a few of my favorite patterns. (This post contains some affiliate links. I receive a small commission if you purchase through them that will be turned around to get more fabric to then convince you to buy more patterns 😉
He absolutely loves the pockets- perfect for Hot Wheels and Legos!
The slim fit is so cute and makes these joggers hip and so, so cool!
The Jolly Roger is a pattern that will be a staple for him. A basic raglan is essential for little boys. The relaxed fit is perfect for his little toddler belly (which is quickly disappearing, sniff, sniff). I think he’s doing his best supermodel smolder here for you 🙂
This is the kind of outfit any little boy would love!
Outfit number two is another classic combo with a twist. I’ve been wanting to make him some Moto Maxx joggers from Love Notions forever. They are full of awesome details that really make them look straight out of the department store.
Double layer, reinforced knees will make these pants last longer and also up the cool factor.
Lots of top stitching may take a bit more time but is so worth it.
For his top I used the new Rowan Raglan from Made for Mermaids. He really wanted a hooded t-shirt and this pattern is full of options so it was perfect.
I never think to do raglans in a single fabric but will definitely be doing it more often now- duh!
Almost all my fabric for these outfits came from Raspberry Creek Fabrics. Their selection of french terry is constantly being updated so make sure you check back often. The Boxwood Joggers and Moto Maxx pants are both made from french terry she carried (the black is usually in stock but the blue and stripes were one-time-buys). The Jolly Roger was made with cotton/lycra from the shop also.
The Rowan was made with a super soft sweater knit I picked up in LA.
Now for the good stuff! There are so many goodies up for grabs. Just look at all the amazing sponsors!
