6 Free patterns for boys!

My boys and I have been taking a lot more breaks in schooling, life, housework, sewing and everything to do anything away from being inside! We have been getting cabin fever and its almost summer which means we feel done homeschooling but we have a few more things to finish up before that can happen so I thought I would pop in and share a few new free patterns I have collected!

Some patterns listed will need a size chart to help with sizing. Go to my Free patterns for boys page to easily find the size charts I use.

This is the Baby Harvey Tee, isn't it so cute?! It comes in sizes 0-3 months and looks perfect for summer!

This romper is the cutest! It is so hard to find a boy romper and this one looks perfect! Its size 0-6 months, Check it out here!

This shorts pattern is a GREAT find! the size range is from newborn to size 12 years, approximately,  and they look to be very versatile! The pattern is in German but I just used google translate. The pattern is at the very bottom Labeled BLITZBUX.

This Raglan shirt looks like a great summer addition to any wardrobe for your boys! It is for sizes 6 months to 3T, go here to get it!

This muscle tee looks really nice and I'm not one to usually like them! This pattern is for size 5 and you can get it here!

These Rocker joggers are simply awesome! They come in sizes newborn to 6x and are very professional looking pants or shorts! The pattern is free but it will take you to a shopping basket page and ask you to put in a price, the blog says that no pay is necessary but if you wanted follow them by email or facebook that would be appreciated, it looks like they have quite a few great free patterns so it would be worth it!  

I hope your spring is going well and we'll see you soon!


Boys like dolls too.

For Christmas this year I bought Parker a baby doll and he absolutely loves it! My older brothers gave me a lot of flack for getting him a doll but I think its good for him to learn good "Daddy" skills while he is willing too ;o)

Ever since Thanksgiving at Grandma Jones house he has been loving babies and I knew it was the perfect time to purchase a doll for him! I bought this baby boy from amazon after searching far and wide for a small, soft body, boy baby and I couldn't be more pleased! He is just the right size and such a cute little thing!

I went ahead and made a small bag for Parker to carry his babies gear and toy cars, of course ;0) I made it up as I went but it turned out great! If I ever figure out our scanner I'll post the pattern.

Next I made these tiny diapers so he could change his boy, it has been a big hit and he loves taking the diapers on and off! I made the pattern for these as well and am quite pleased with it.

 I ended up making 3 diapers, a bag and a teeny tiny blanket for him to wrap up his baby in. I went a head and bought a little stroller... that was pink, it was only $5 and I couldn't justify a blue one for 4 times that amount, lol! I didn't really care and neither did he as it turns out!

They are the best of friends and Parker drags him on many outings and sleeps with his baby every night and at naptime. I am basking in my only doll loving child as I know it will be short lived...sigh, I LOVE it!


Mr. Parker and his new shirt

Parker seems to get most of the new  handmade clothing these days, I just can't help it! Hes at the age that seems to slip by so quickly, and then *poof* its gone! Plus he doesn't have hand me downs since there is nearly 5 years between him and Preston so he needs them, lol!

 He also doesn't realize that most boys don't like baby dolls, especially to have their picture taken with them ;0) But he loves his baby he received for Christmas, and does everything with him.

 Boy toys get old after you have dealt with them for nearly 11 years and through 4 boys so I was happy he wanted a different kind of toy than the others (well this year anyways, as all my boys have had a baby doll in their toddler years).

I'm in love with his chatter to his baby and wish I understood what hes trying to say! I'm afraid he may need speech therapy in the future as he is barely starting to say words we can understand and is 26 months, time will tell I suppose. Anyways I'm sure you are more interested in the pattern deets so scroll on down!

  The shirt was made using the flashback skinny tee which has become the most used pattern I have ever bought! I sized it up to a 2 this time and I am loving the fit even more than usual with this drapey knit I found at Walmart, it seriously is the perfect knit fabric! I think it was on sale for $1 a yard but it is not $1 quality!!!

The neck binding was done with a double stretch needle and I added the pocket by eyeballing it.. Speaking of double needles make sure to use the ones listed as stretch or it will not work on your knit fabric, I know they always say that and sometimes you can get by with a universal needle, but for the double needle on knit just don't even try it, ask me how I know, haha!
