Sewing for boys

Because BLW isn't just for lentil-weavers. Some of us like to piddle about with bits of felt and sticky-backed plastic as well.

Sewing for boys

Postby Kanga » 24 Jun 2013, 13:06

So far I've made presents for most parties dd has been invited to, either crayon rolls or little bags for the girls & a spider man crayon roll for a boy.

I'm stuck for other ideas for school age boys though. I did just think maybe superhero capes. Any other ideas?! Not got my head around boys yet as mine is too small to care! ;)

My five year old would love a superhero cape (keep promising him one actually :oops: )

Anything with suitable superhero fabric etc would go down well - the spiderman crayon roll would have been very well received. The right sized/shaped bag would be well received too - is there any way you could have velcro or something which would mean it could attach to a scooter?

Monster masks? Will keep thinking...

If you could make scooter bags then you would be supermum in the eyes of all other children!!

Crayon roll, car roll, superhero cape, scooter bag, handbag, tutus. All popular here with the 2 yo and the 6 yo.

I make superhero capes for every party at the moment, in fact I have one to do tonight. I've made car rolls in the past as well.

So far for S and his boy cousin I've done crayon rolls, superhero capes, finger puppets in handbags, appliqueed T shirts, and Aprons. They have all gone down well.

Shorts. I love the Made By Rae toddler trousers, with the different fabric on the turn ups, I know Joe wold turn his nose up at trousers like that but he would love shorts with funky fabric turnups.
