Hello BOY-lovin’ friends. Welcome to day two of our Celebration! I’m so pleased that some of you have already whipped up a pair of Kid Pants! A few of you have questions, which I’ll answer in the comments or in the next pants post coming this week.
Throughout the month we’ll be sharing some craft and playtime ideas with you. But my goal is to focus mainly on boy clothing.
Most of my sewing ideas develop by soaking in the world around me…..kids playing at the park, walking through the store, the weather, trends, colors, candy and books, and browsing blogs and shops. But looking at pretty pictures probably inspires me the most. So I took a quick stroll through etsy to see what sort of boy creations were out there. And I was impressed! Quite a lot! If you’re not a sewer, then hop over and start buying! And if you’ve got an idea in your head that needs a boost of inspiration, check out these fabulous things people are making….

I’m in love with this shop….the classic/cool styles, simple colors, and home-grown vibe. I seriously want everything in there for Owen. You must check them out.
