Introducing Designed for Boys

Welcome to Designed for Boys.

For a while I have been thinking about how to continually bring together ideas for creating for boys.

With two young ones of my own, it is amazing how making for boys can stretch your creativity. It can be bold and adventurous, contemporary or classic, stylish or practical.

Because I want to be inspired by the latest trends and do much more than basic pants and a tee, I was thinking that there must be alot of other crafters around the world who could use the same sort of inspiration.

What I hope to do is to share how fashion looks or details can translate into your own creations. Patterns, fabrics, tutorials and little ways to tailor your own clothes, will be all here in the one boy blog. You may even find some useful ideas or tips for making for the girls in your life.

As I will be on the lookout for news to share, if you have an idea, technique, tutorial, pattern or new fabric for boys, please email me at ssmith_au@yahoo.com.au. I'd love to hear from you.

So here we have it, "Designed for Boys", my new blog dedicated to making for boys. Enjoy!
