Sewing For Boys

My copy arrived last week.  I have been meaning to give it a wee review.

I have to say...my online sewing ladies mentioned it and I went to Amazon and pre-ordered it RIGHT AWAY.

When it arrived on my doorstep, I was so excited.  I waited until I had a perfectly quiet time to read it.

So, I am going to be COMPLETELY HONEST.  

I am not in love as much as I thought I would be.

I know the GREAT bloggers out there that participate in all the BOY series in bloggerland are raving about it the last few days.  But, as always, I am bucking the system. 

Don't get me wrong.

  There are adorable pants, jackets, and hoodies.

It was the "fillers" that disappointed me. 

A bucket hat?  A car mat?  A crayon roll?  A belt?

Maybe it is because I am so involved on an online sewing community and have instant access to free tutorials.

I am happy to make Button a few things from the book though.  

I do plan on making the Treasure Pocket Pants, Pauley's Pullover, and Luka Hoodie, and Two-in-one Jacket.

But....to be completely fair, if there is someone who is new to sewing for their boy.  

This book is DEFINITELY for you.

So forgive me my little tantrum.  I just was hoping for something other than pants, shorts, shirts, and jackets.  

I think the REAL problem is that I wish I was sewing for a girl.

  1. No words of wisdom or comfort just wanted you to know I hear you.

  2. Thanks Kristi...I don't think I realized what was bugging me until I wrote that final line.

    You never know when it shows it's face!

    Like I said, it is a great book. I think I was searching for something that will never be! :)

  3. The "sewing-for-boys review comment" is too vague for a helpful response. To provide context, ask about the book, website, content, age-appropriateness, style, and recommendation to other sewists with boys. Once provided, a targeted comment can be written that addresses your experience and opinion.
