*Disclaimer – I apologize in advance for the excessive use of exclamation points you are going to see in this post. Carry on.*
Good Monday morning! I am so excited that I finally get to announce this. Back when I was scheduling posts for the (30) Days of Sundresses Series, I realized that we were totally neglecting the boys for a whole month…and something had to be done about that. So I started emailing the bloggers I knew who sew for boys, and this series was born.
Then, another great thing happened. One of the bloggers I had emailed – Stacey of Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy! emailed back and asked if I wanted a co-host! Hooray! Stacey has been awesome at helping organize, brainstorm, and generally make this series SOOOOO much better than if I had done it on my own (like her button above).
So, this series is for the boys!
You might be wondering why we’re calling it Sew in Tune. Well, that was a brainstorm between Stacey and I to have every outfit be inspired by a song. So stay tuned (ha!) for the musical inspiration behind our boys outfits.
I’m also excited that in this series I get to have some favorites from the (30) Days of Sundresses series back, some awesome big bloggers new to guest posting here, and I get to introduce you to some up and coming bloggers. A great mix of talent! (I warned you about the exclamation points).
Oh, and finally, remember how in this post I mysteriously alluded to the fact that I would tell you more today? Well, I spent my time last month not only on vacation with my family, but hard at work on pattern drafting. And today I get to tell you that I have an ebook in the works! It’s called Blank Slate Basics, and in it you’re going to find 5 patterns (geared toward boys, but basic enough to work for girls too) to unleash your creativity on! I have not bought clothes for my boys this season with sewing up stuff from this collection. And yes, the tank top from that post might be one of the patterns…
So, without further ado, here is the series schedule. Stacey and I will alternate hosting the guest post, so on the days it’s not here, I’ll have the link to her site up so you don’t miss a thing.
