Giveaway---Blank Slate Patterns for Boys!

Our giveaway today is from one of our former contestants, Melly Sews, who has launched her Blank Slate Pattern e-books for boys and now for girls as well.

The book is chalk-full of great, basic patterns for boys.  Her goal with this set of patterns is to give those who sew for boys a set of "Blank Slates" - the things boys wear all the time - so that you don't have to worry about drafting patterns or take the time to do so, you can skip right to expressing your creativity through fabric choice, embellishment and detail.  

Isn't that a great concept?  She is so brilliant.

Today, two lucky winners will receive Melissa's e-book that is worth $25.  You can also view and purchase the individual patterns HERE.



Just leave us a comment about a favorite thing you love to sew for boys---and you are in!  We will pick two winners at random to receive Melissa's Blank Slate Basics patterns.

Good luck!!!




This giveaway is now closed but you can always find Melly's Blank Slate Patterns on her site!

My 3 year boy idolises his big sister and wants to dress in pink all the time, so I spend my time making him shorts and T-shirts in patterns with enough pink to satisfy him but not so much that strangers in the street comment on my two beautiful daughters!

    ReplyDelete
  40. My favorite thing to sew for my boys is pants and shorts-you can have so much fun with colors and patterns and lets be honest who wants to pay for new pants that might have any hint of cuteness? I found some black and white checkered shorts like the houndstooth shorts I made my youngest at a store in the next town over and they wanted $38.95 for them! Basic shorts with an elastic waist 0.0 I think the blank slate basics are a fantastic idea and a must have for any sewing for boys mom :D

I recently discovered A Girl and a Glue Gun captain america and batman reverse applique tshirts! So wonderful and even my big boys loves it when he and his little bro and matched up! For this one the boys got a utility belt as well - the big boy had places for his sheild, throwing star (toys) etc the little one for his sippy cup and pacifier! I love boys!

When my daughter was born 25 years ago, I made a lot of her clothes as well. Now I've got a brand new grandson and I am "learning" to sew again! I wish I had never stopped making clothes! There is so much I have forgotten over the years.. I have been making sleepers, pants and t-shirts for little Tylor and I would really like to get into making more clothes for him as he grows up.

    ReplyDelete
  158. I don't know yet what I like to sew for boys! My first son was born 2 months ago. (I have 5 daughters, so I've got the girl stuff down : )) I'm planning to make him some cozy sweater pants (from a thrifted wool sweater) as soon as I find time...

  162. I'm very much a novice when it comes to sewing, and I have 3 boys, but I've never actually sewn anything for them beyond a cape or superhero mask! I've always wanted to be able to sew them clothes and would love to have patterns to follow to make the task less daunting :)

  165. My son is grown up, and I have to admit when he was little Most of my sewing for him was fancy sewing like smocked outfits until he outgrew them. Now I have a one year old grandson who doesn't go places a child would wearing smocked clothing. It's time for grandmama to take on basics. That is what he needs. Thank you for the chance.

  166. I only have boys, and clothes for them in the shops are soooo boring, so I like to make them bright funky T's.

  167. I love sewing pants for my little guy and have big aspirations of shirts for all seasons and coats! But everything has always been some sort of woven, no knits. I just got a serger for my birthday though, so hopefully that can change!!

  168. I haven't had much opportunity to sew for boys yet, but when I do I LOVE making shirts with ties/bow ties on the front. I just think they look so adorable in those. Plus, the moms love how comfy those shirts are. No constricting neck straps to worry about!

  169. I have mostly made baby clothes for my two grandsons. But they are both out of the baby stage now, and both are skinny and extra-long in back-length which leads to fitting problems, so I'm interested in making more of their clothes.

  170. I've been thinking lately of how much I'd love to buy a couple of her patterns so winning this would be amazing! Well, I love sewing boys trousers - so many opportunities to add fun details - but I also love making accessories: caps, hats, belts etc, anything with a bit of personality :-)

  173. I love sewing for boys, but my skills are rather simple, I've been too nervous to make my own patterns, this would be great to extend my skills in the basics - particularly as the idea of embellishing items to personalise them sounds like so much fun!

  174. Two words: Seer and Sucker. Little boys look so cute in it, and it doesn't wrinkle.
