Sewing Up Christmas for a Boy!

It can be hard to come up with ideas when it comes to sewing for boys. Here is the first Christmas outfit I made for little C. when he was closing in on his second birthday.

Santa Longall

The applique was done with a regular sewing machine. If your machine has a zig zag stitch then you can do this, too! SewMamaSew has a great tutorial on this technique.

Instead of using cotton fabric for Santa’s gloves and boots, I used grosgrain ribbon. It added a great dimension.

And since little ones are either crawling or running away from you, I choose to decorate the backside as well!

This pattern is the Johnny from Children’s Corner. I’ve made it up probably 3 dozen different ways (at least). Check out my tutorial for this pattern here.

Enjoy your holiday sewing!
