31 days of sewing: sewing for boys

Sewing for girls is so easy - there are endless cute ideas for girls. Sewing for boys is a bit more of a challenge. I love challenges, so I guess that's why God gave me two grandsons and no grand-daughters to sew for - LOL! I also could not be happier that I have a daughter who keeps asking me to make garments for her baby boy! He just turned one this month, and his one-year portraits will be tomorrow, so here's what my daughter picked for me to make:
 Reversible Jon-Jon
I can't wait to see his portrait of him in this!
I am working on a tutorial that will be coming soon on how to take any jon-jon pattern and make a snap crotch. I'm also working on drafting a new jon-jon ePattern very similar to this one.
The following pictures are some of the garments I have made for both my grandsons - enjoy the pictorial for boys!!
 Caleb - 6mos
Look for this in Sew Beautiful in 2012!

Such cute boys! Oh, wait. I'm supposed to comment on their outfits. They are cute, too. Especially that tux.
