Breaking ground blog tour

Today is my stop on the breaking ground blog tour hosted by Melissa at

We were told to choose a designer that was new to us.  So, I knew there were lots I had not tried.  I happened to get an email with a list of some free patterns, and I saw a Free T-shirt pattern for boys.  Great. I had to get a birthday gift made for a grandson, so I decided to share that.

The pattern is from Emily at  she has been around for a while, but I had just heard of her.  I love when free patterns are offered as it gives you a chance to try out that designer.

The pattern I chose is the boys t-shirt pattern.  It went together very fast, and the directions were very easy to follow. I needed fast and easy because I have been working crazy overtime.

She has many other patterns I would like to try.  I will definitely use her patterns again.

By the way, my grandson loved his new shirt.

Please check out what the other bloggers have done.
