Publisher Comments:

Shelly Figureoa and Karen LePage, the designers behind Patterns by Figgy's offer up a fabulous collection of full outfits for boys ages newborn to 8. Readers will delight in the fresh, modern styling that is the signature of Patterns by Figgys.

In addition to contemporary styling, readers will also find that every piece of clothing in the photos is a pattern from the book. Aside from footwear, no commercially produced clothing appears in the photos.

All patterns are represented by gorgeous photography and presented in the style of coveted Japanese pattern books. From outerwear to sleepwear and from formal duds to playcloths, moms can create a full stylish wardrobe for their favorite boys, all from one book.

25 projects are offered in 6 themed chapters.

In SPRINGTIME SPROUTS, readers learn to make:

  • THE HENRY SHIRT:Twist on a classic. The Henry Shirt can be worn as a shirt on its own, or as an over shirt with any type of tee underneath. The snap closure makes this shirt easy for your little guy to dress himself, and is handsome whether open or closed. Special Feature: large sturdy pockets for storing and bringing home rocks.
  • THE EASY LINEN SHIRT:Dress up or dress down, your boy will feel comfortable and cool in this easy linen shirt.
  • R IS FOR ROMP:What little baby wouldn't want to romp around in this cute raglan romper? They can stretch and kick all they want and still keep cool on a warm spring day.
  • Mr. Two Face Pants:One day he's your sweet little innocent boy and the next you think, "Where did this child come from"? Whatever his mood these pants will still be a signature piece in your child's wardrobe.

In SUMMERTIME FUN, readers find instructions for:

  • SHORT SLEEVE RAGLAN TEE:Seams on the outside of our slim-fit baseball jersey aren't just stylish; they're practical, too. An ultra-smooth interior protects even the most sensitive kid from irritation so he can concentrate on what's important...having fun!
  • KICKIN' BACK SWEATS:These are made for the adventurous boy. Square appliqués on the knees to help protect your boy's skin for each slide, boom, and splat.
  • BOBBY'S BATHERS:Super-cool swim trunks you can make yourself.
  • MIMI'S BOY SUSPENDER SHORTS:A perfect getup for a lunch date with Mimi. These adorable suspender shorts have a vintage feel with a modern twist. The adjustable button suspenders can grow with your little one.

After reading AUTUMN LEAVES, seamstresses can whip up:

  • PAULY'S PULL OVER:Playing outside in a big pile of leaves; what Fall day would be complete without a warm cozy pull over sweatshirt? I can't think of one!
  • TREASURE POCKET PANTS:It's all in the name. These pants look super and pockets are specifically designed to hold all the special treasures boys find on your family hikes.
  • OUT ON THE TOWN JACKET:Boys will be boys, but they can be little gentlemen, too. This formal jacket is designed with a vintage feel and modern comfort for the squirmy moments.
  • LITTLE HEARTBREAKER PANTS:If you are going to take your little gentleman out on the town, the formal jacket wouldn't be complete without a handsome coordinating pair of pants.

WINTER WONDERLAND teaches home sewers to make:

  • LUKA HOODIE:A hoodie isn't a hoodie unless the hood stays put. The pattern is specifically designed with safety and comfort in mind. The Winter winds can be hard on little ears and we need to keep them covered. Fully lined in soft knit, this hoodie can be adapted for many seasons.
  • TWO IN ONE JACKET:Any chance I have to make something reversible, I take it! What better way to save on laundry than a reversible jacket?
  • JUST LIKE DAD FLANNEL ROBE AND SLIPPERS:There is nothing sweeter than a squeaky-clean boy, fresh out of a hot bath and ready to cuddle up with a goodnight book.
  • GOODNIGHT SWEETHEART PJ'S:A cozy pair of PJs is a staple for every wardrobe. Ours are designed for comfort while your boy rests and dreams up his adventures for the next day to come.

With ON THE GO!, readers can foster creative play with:

  • Race Car Play Mat:I don't think I've met a boy that didn't love cars when he was a toddler. This play mat provides a raceway of fun for your little boys to drive and vrrrrooooomm all over.
  • THE TO-GO ARTIST: This crayon/pencil and paper combo can be a parent's best friend; riding the subway, dining out, or waiting for an appointment. Drop it in your bag and you are ready to go.
  • BRICK BAG CARRY ON:With Winter comes travel. Boys love to build and they love their bricks. This carrying case is designed to hold all the special bricks they need to take them on trips to visit friends and family.
  • HOLD ‘EM UP BELT:For the time when your little one grows out of diapers or shoots up an inch overnight, they instantly slim down, pants become loose, and you'll need a belt to hold ‘em up.

In S.O.S. (SAVE OUR SHIRTS!) the author offer up excellent ideas for create t-shirt re-use including:

  • T-SHIRT TRIAGE:Extend the wear of your little dude's favorite tees.
  • WRAP NOT WASTE NOT BAGS:Creating a special bag with your leftover fabric is a terrific way to help our planet. The bag can be used over and over again. Wrap a gift for a child to give at a special occasion or for the boys to store their special toys.
  • LET'S GO FISHING HAT:Grab your pole and grab your hat, it's time to bond on the pond.
  • SNUGGLE-UP T-SHIRT BLANKET:The cutest little tees you couldn't bear to pass down can now become a new kind of keepsake.
