Boys are tricky little creatures.？ At least mine is.？ I feel like I can predict my girls’； reactions， meltdowns， drama， etc…；..maybe because I am one？？ (And I’；m not saying that knowing my girls are going to be dramatic makes the drama any easier.？ Whew， no sirree!!)？ But boys…；…；.they seem to think differently， act differently， giggle at different thingscustom gifts for dad， are mesmerized by unpredictable things， etc.？ But I’；ll tell you something， this boy of mine has me wrapped around his tiniest finger.？ The way he snuggles up on my lap， sincerely asks how I’；m doing， can sense when I’；m frustrated， randomly volunteers to help， and tells me I’；ll always be his favorite momma forever…；…；..aggggghhhh， this boy.？ He melts me.？customized gifts for him
Yeah， boys are such different little creatures than girls are in many ways…；…；including sewing projects.
My little Connor is almost 5 and he still loves for me to make him things.？ He sees when I whip up his sisters a quick little dress， skirt， or tunic and then asks when I’；m going to make him something new to wear.？ It’；s not that there aren’；t things to make for boys.？ They just sometimes take a little longer.？ And aren’；t as easy to just slap a little embellishment on something， and call it good.？ Maybe you’；ll agree…；..but you have to be a little more creative with those little boys.？ And I really don’；t know how much longer Connor will appreciate my sewing him things to wear， so I need to hunker down this summer and make him a few more treasures that he can proudly tell people， “；my momma made this!!“；.？ (Because let me tell you， this kid doesn’；t keep things to himself.？ He’；ll talk anyone’；s ear off.)
With that in mind…；…；.any Boy Sewing Project requests？!？! I can definitely add some to my list and try and tackle several of them this summer.？ Leave me a comment if you’；d like to see something in particular.？ And I’；ll try my best at a few of them.？ Deal？？

？In the meantime， I thought I’；d share many of the boy projects I’；ve already made (from my list of clothing tutorials)…；…；in case you need a little inspiration to get started.

Revered for being the world's most popular colour blue is an intellectual colour. It falls on the cold side of the spectrum with the ability to soothe and calm, invigorate and stimulate thought depending on which shade or hue you use. Strong blues are ideal for creating a room with a touch of drama and promote conversation, while the softer shades will aid concentration and calm the mind. With these abilities it's little wonder it used so prolifically in business and commerce, making it the ideal colour choice for home offices.
