Gifts for boys

13 Jul

My 9 yr old has had a number of boys birthday party’s to attend recently and I’ve taken it upon myself to make gifts.  With plenty of fabric in the cupboard it seems wrong not to!

I mentioned back here about this fabric:

origami
A FQ each of Boulder Chill and Origami Sprouts (Mixed Bag line by Moda)

And how it truly was bought for the purpose of making a gift for a friend and not for stashing; this is the finished item:

Origami open wide zip pouch

I’m struggling to remember the making of this but I think that much of it was sewn by Bethan until time and interest ran out!

It’s the great tutorial by Anna of Noodlehead

It was gifted to one of her closest friends along with some origami creation that she made to go with it.

Yesterday there was another party and while Bethan chose the fabric I did all the sewing this time:

Robotic journal cover

A simple journal cover, using up smallish pieces of fabric that have not yet made it to the ‘scrap’ bin but are less than a fat quarter!

Fun and simple to make and hopefully useful for the birthday boy!

There is a whole pile of other stuff to show and tell but I have lots of fabric that needs cutting for the shop so it will all have to wait.  In a day or so I may well have a ‘little’ something to link up with Le Challenge along with some pretty awesome photographs…
