The Every Day Camp Shirt on my Every Day Boy



This is my boy Connor. I don’t sew as much for him as I do for my girls. I know that’s not fair, but it’s not entirely my fault. He goes to a uniformed public school, which kind of discourages me to sew for him because I know he won’t get to wear the things I make very much.


On the bright side, he does get really excited when I make him something cool… like my version of Fishsticks Designs’ Every Day Camp Shirt. That super fun Japanese fabric is by Kokka and comes from Modes4u, my newest crush of a store. (click here to visit) It makes me want to move to Hong Kong or Japan. I can’t decide which.


Check out this cute yoke! I absolutely love to make the sleeves match a contrasting yoke. I do it for my girls too. Eeek!


And Bonnie’s clear instructions even told me just how to place the fabric so the collar print would be right-side-up, Perfect on the first try. 

Right now you have a chance to win 3 pdf or paper patterns from Fishsticks Designs for yourself (plus $25 in fabric from The Fabric Fairy). Hurry and enter.. this giveaway ends soon!


I have another boy too. You’ve probably never seen pictures of him either. I guess I better find another cute little man project. Happy sewing y’all!
