Boys Sewing Projects
You'll find here a summary of 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.
