You'll find here a summary of boys sewing projects. 

boys sewing projects

It is a misunderstanding to think that only girls sew or have an interest in sewing. Give them something "boyish" or fun to sew and they make great sewers.  Give boys a project like a purse or headband and they may never be interested again.

Sometimes simple sewing projects can be changed entirely by the fabric you use. There is a wide range of interesting boy designed fabric with themes such as sports, hunting, characters, animals, even a plain color fabric in their favorite color can make a project more in tune for a boy.

Go ahead and take your boy shopping at the fabric store let him pick out a yard or two of his favorite fabric. (He might even be surprised what type of fabric is available.) Then try one of these sewing projects that can easily interest your boy.

Don't forget simple sewing techniques to teach them as well including sewing on buttons and mending.

10 Boys Sewing Projects

  2. Treasure stick bag- This project is great for a beginning sewer to hand sew. My son made one for one of his first projects with red felt and a red robin patch. He still has it hanging in his room.

  3. Pencil case- You can create a zipper bag and use it as a pencil case, pokemon card holder or to hold whatever treasure they'd like. You can also change the size if you'd like a smaller case like to hold money. Again changing the fabric will really bring personality to the project.

  4. Pillowcase- Every kid has to sleep and how better to personalize their room by making a pillowcase out of a themed fabric.
