November 11 ~ Gifts for Boys

on November 11 | in Contests & Giveaways, Featured Creativity, Handmade Holidays | by | with 327 Comments

Today’s gift ideas focus on boys but they’d also all be great for girls. A little later this month we’ll share ideas for men too! Don’t miss the related tutorial links below as there are lots of fun picks perfect for boys throughout our Handmade Holidays posts.

Today’s Guest Curator: Melissa from a happy stitch

Melissa is a sewist, sewing instructor and designer of patterns aimed specifically at the beginning sewer. She finds sewing wonderful and frustrating, and she loves helping new sewists navigate through those wild emotions! Find Melissa at her a happy stitch blog, as well as on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter. She even has her own video!

Melissa writes, “As a mother of two boys ages four and six, I find nothing more difficult that thinking up how to make gifts for them. Now that they are old enough to have their own real preferences the things I like to make such as quilts and button-up shirts aren’t really cutting it. There are not many tutorials for boy gifts and they aren’t into clothing all that much unless it’s something really awesome. I can conjure up a boatload of ideas for what to make my sister or my aunt but my boys leave me flummoxed. I really, really love a Handmade Holiday season though, so I knew I was going to be scrounging the internet for help this year. I threw a bunch of ideas on this Pinterest board too…”

Make It

Monster Hand Warmers
Keep their hands toasty all winter long with these Monster Hand Warmers from Wendi of Shiny Happy World for Sew Mama Sew. We like the crazy, faux fur.

Wooden Snap Blocks
Make a set of Wooden Snap Blocks like Jenae’s at I Can Teach My Child for a fun, new building option.

T-Shirt Pillow
Turn a favorite old shirt into something you can enjoy every day with this T-Shirt Pillow from Disney at Ruffles and Stuff.

Superhero Cape
We know you’ve seen some capes already, but this version reuses large t-shirts to make a super-easy Superhero Cape! Find the tutorial (including a video) by Jenny at The Southern Institute.

Monster Twins
This Monster Twins project is a free PDF pattern at Sew Mama Sew from Trixi’s Sew Together Grow Together: Sewing Patterns for Parents and Children book.

Sewing + Appliqué Patterns
Rae at Armommy has a bunch of Sewing + Appliqué Patterns and a video tutorial. Make mini-Boden-like shirts, bags, pillows and more; once you see how easy it is you’ll want to put appliqué on everything. (Melissa loves the monster, paper airplane or mustache.)
