S is for sewing ebook.

I recently was privileged to test 3 out of the 4 patterns in the new “S” is for sewing ebook. I love all of three of them sew much  These patterns are included in my back to school sewing list for my kids. My favorite thing about all the patterns is that older boys are getting more excited about home made items.

The bookworm blazer is so amazing for those back to school pictures. It is very professional looking. My 11 year says that it make him look all grown up for going to middle school.

The quadralital Tee or quad tee by has a very special pocket. My kids call it their spy pocket. They can hide thing in there and mom won’t know. The best part about this shirt is that even my 15 year old got really excited about this shirt. This shirt only goes to a size 14 my son is very skinny. I was lucky enough to test sizes, extra small, medium and large. Which I thought was just perfect for my stair step kids.

Last but not least but the Looseleaf Knapsack. This back pack is so perfect. Our local high school does not have lockers for the students. My oldest is so excited for this back pack because it is so sturdy and wide he will be able to carry all his books with him. It also several different options for the straps. It is really change which position you want the straps in. There are lots of pockets. Even a place to keep a water bottle.

Scrap Busters Zanzibar tank and lounge pants

This summer I have been working on a ton scrap busters. I need to cut my scraps down. I had the privilege of testing the Zanzibar Tank and the Zanzibar Lounge Pants by Momma Quail Patterns. Both of these patterns are great for using up those pesky scrap wovens you have laying around.

Lounge pants are amazing they can be made with or without pockets. They can be long pants or shorts.

The Tank has so many options. You can do a swing cut so that its more loose fitting or you can do a straight cut so it fits more like a regular boy shirt. You can add the hood or leave it off. My kids love the hood. Its was 100 plus degrees out side so when I took these pictures so my son did not want to smile.

If you make this with light weight fabric it makes it very breathable in the hot weather. The contrast strip on the hood and the side made out of the woven makes for a great unique shirt.

The great thing about these two patterns is if you get them both you can make you kids matching outfits.

You can get both pattern at Momma Quail patterns.
