This week is Kids Clothes Week where lots of people sew clothes for their kids! Since ALL the sewing I’m doing this week for kids is secret sewing that I can’t share on the blog yet, I thought I’d bring home some posts we’ve published elsewhere. That way I can sew to my heart’s content! Please enjoy this post first published on Our Chez Nous for the boys sewing week.
Hi everyone! This is Audrey from Skirt Fixation and I’m delighted to be here today sharing some boy sewing! I have 4 boys (spanning the ages of 2-15) as well as 3 girls. I love to sew for my boys. Today I’ve got a round up of DIY backpacks just for boys! If you also have boys, you already have figured out that if you give them a backpack it saves their pockets and your time in the laundry room. So here are 12 backpacks your boys will love! (Click on each photo to be taken to that project.)

I’m especially excited about that last one there because it’s what I sewed for my little boy! For this backpack I used Sew Much Ado’s FREE bunny backpack pattern. I wasn’t sure if my 2 year old would like the backpack or even keep it on, but once he saw his sister wearing hers, he couldn’t be parted from it!
Today over on my blog, Skirt Fixation, I’m sharing all about how I laminated the fabric to make this backpack more durable. As well as lots more info, photos and the backpack I made for his sister too. And you can also find information about the shirt I sewed him here. Thanks for having me, Julie. Happy boy sewing, everyone!
