About

When I was 9 my mom had me and 2 of my sisters take a sewing class at Joanns fabric store. There I learned to make shorts, a bag and a skirt using real patterns. My sewing teacher said I was a natural which caused a bit of jealousy from my older sisters as you can imagine! My next projects were at 15 when I made a quilt for a church project and then at 17 when I went on a pioneer trek and had to make a dress to wear.  I truly enjoyed all the details and creations I made!

Fast forward to when I was 23, I had 2 boys and was pregnant for the third time. I was very hopeful that I was going to have a girl; I wanted and yearned for one so badly! When we found out it was another boy. I was devastated. I was not excited and went into a deep depression over it. I actually briefly thought of putting him up for adoption... or something (don't judge I was seriously depressed). I didn't think I could handle another boy but thankfully my husband/doctor helped me through those feelings and I was able to come to terms with having 3 boys.
 That is where my interest in sewing picked up again and in many ways for the first time. I had started a family blog and in so doing discovered a whole world of crafty and sewing blogs I didn't know existed! I started searching for things to make my baby boy. At first it was hard to find projects for boys but I managed to find a few things here and there. I made some outfits for my expectant baby and my other 2 boys. As I sewed for my baby though I began to imagine a boy wearing them and my heart was softened until I was very excited for him to come and even to have 3 boys.
Now here I am with four boys and a sewing blog. I am still passionate about sewing for boys! I feel they are very overlooked in the sewing world and for those of us with boys it is hard to find patterns, not to mention free patterns, and projects for our boys. So I have started this website so others moms, grandmothers, aunts, uncles and whoever! Can find free patterns for their boys!
Come, sew and share this website for others to enjoy as well,
