Never realized until today ... There are not a lot of embroidery designs for little boys. I have been looking for a simple redwork design I could embroider on a t-shirt for my 5 year old GS. I embroidered a designs on t-shirts for his sisters so now I need to find a design for him too. Any suggestions Cuties?

I run into this now with the 7 yr old Great G/ son. He is past the age for anything cartoony of animals , animals and such, he informs me he is not a baby anymore, but the 4 yr old sis tells me the same thing. He plays ball and has for 2 yrs now so anything I can find suitable for ball playing I can please him with and he loves to swim so that's another area I can please him with. He loves and has 2 dogs so that pleases him if it looks like one of his dogs. He is very opinionated about his initials, always wants all 3 and in a row, doesn't like the last initial in middle. LOL The little ballerina I can please as long as it is not babyish.

You have to 'look' harder to spot what is suitable for a boy. Sometimes it is just a matter of changing a colour or three.
There is a bigger market for girlee things. I do not know why as 50% of the population is male.
Brother has a Penny Farthing bicycle that is one colour and I am sure that I have seen it (or similar) by other companies too.

Football, cars, airplanes, helicopters,motorcycles,animals. I've been doing boys designs the longest (grandson is 15) There are thousands, maybe not redwork, but boy designs. My favorite are appliques.

Thanks for the heads up. I have never heard of this site before. lots of nice designs. hugs, Susan

Adorable Applique has cars, and animals that would work well for a little boy. SICK has Koala Bears, and motorcycles. How about his first name initial using the Robot Font on Cute! Dogs, horses and trains might also be an idea. Hope this helps.
