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.

10 Boys Sewing Projects
ipod holder. This is a great
project that kids can design and create exactly how they'd like.
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.
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
kid has to sleep and how better to personalize their room by
making a pillowcase out of a themed fabric.
Applique a shirt- This is a
simple idea that can turn a plain shirt into something fun. This
is one of those boys sewing projects they can personalize
Stuffed Balls- Create a
stuffed ball or animal from this project.
T-shirt drawstring bag-
Do they have a favorite shirt they don't want to part with? This
is a good project to recycle a shirt and make a bag at the same
Binder Cover- Make school
work more fun or organize their paperwork at home with a binder
Bed Caddy- Organize all those
boys bedtime books, toys or cards with a simple bed or couch
Lap Desk. An easy project to use
