Sew Crazy Features – BOY Edition

One of the great things about blogging is all of the absolutely amazing creativity I see out there on a daily basis, I love being blown away by your ideas!

I thought I would switch the segment up a bit this week - instead of showing off what I found all over the web, I will show off some of my favorites that were uploaded into SewSet!

After running a search for little boy items, here were a few favorites that I stumbled across…

1. Oxford Gent Trouser Tutorial, Running with Scissors, 2. Mom Heart Applique Template, Leafy Treetop Spot, 3. Double Lapel Vest Pattern, The Mother Huddle, 4. Lil’ Mister Bow Tie Tutorial, Delia Creates, 5. Dino Tails Tutorial, Running with Scissors,  6. Baby Knit Baseball Hat Pattern, Me Sew Crazy,  7. Nowhere Man Pants Pattern, Shwin & Shwin, 8. The Maxwell Top Pattern, Shwin & Shwin, 9. Tiny Tour de France Jersey Tutorial, Craftstorming, 10. Brand your own Elastic Tutorial, Craftstorming

Aren’t they all so amazing?!!  We have come a long way with our little mister clothing. I love it!





Now,  what is SewSet?..



SewSet is a brand new website that was launched last week to operate as a sewing pattern and tutorial hub.  There was a need for an on-line sewing search engine, where users could search, browse and save sewing patterns from all of their favorite independent designers.  




Who are these independent designers?

1. Pattern Designers who sell their patterns to the general public, either via ePattern or paper pattern

2. Bloggers that share their sewing expertise via free tutorials




There are more and more blogs and sewing tutorials popping up in the on-line DIY community, and with that comes the need to be able to find them all.  Many of these seamstresses already have, or are starting to come up with, their own digitized patterns for sale.  SewSet wants to operate as a large directory, where you can find all of these patterns and tutorials in one place.  So you can find exactly what you need, when you need it! 



Getting users in touch with the independent designer. 



How easy is it to upload a pattern or tutorial???



It couldn’t be easier!  With the help of my awesome soft launch team, we have the pattern uploading process down to a science.  Incorporating all of the pertinent information needed for search, while eliminating any bulky or time consuming processes.  With each items taking less than 2 minutes to upload, you will find you are done in no time at all!



Here’s how



Click the ‘Add a Pattern’ button on the top of the page…



This will prompt you to either sign in, or sign up (you need to be a registered member to add patterns).  Fill out the basic information requested, see below.



This brings you to the New Pattern page.  Everything is  self-explanatory in this process, see below.



Hit ‘Add Pattern’, Lean back in your chair, and admire your work :).

Easy peasy any which way you look at it!  
I hope you will hop on over sometime and give it a look around.  Upload some of your own designs and become a member!  With more features already in the works for the next roll out – I am sure this will grow into something we can all be proud of!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and until next time…
Happy Sewing!

    I am really loving SewSet. I think it might take some time to really catch on, but yesterday I searched both Pinterest AND SewSet to look around for some patterns that I want to teach for my next Sew Classy! I just thought I’d let you know! I like that it’s selective for patterns, bc Pinterest does get muddled down with so many other projects.

    Looking at all these cute boy things makes me wish for a boy, once again. I’m afraid that “look at these adorable sewing patterns for boys” won’t be enough of a push for my husband though. :)

    Some fantastic boy projects. I’ve been planning to make those dino tails for ages now, they are brilliant. I am loving SewSet too. Thanks for featuring my tutorials :)
