Boy Gifts

My nephews are getting hard to make things for. I just don't think about boy stuff I guess. Here is what I came up with for my nephew who is entering the teenage years. Hopefully he is not to cool for it all.
He likes motorbikes, so I did motorbike appliques on this towel for him. It kind of took a long time because of all the stitching detail I added. It definitely needed it though because I didn't want it to look to little boyish. Anyhow, he is worth it so hopefully he likes it.

I added clothing detail with different stitching and thread colors. I like the way it turned out.

I also made him a tie which my husband is modeling here. I also hope this fits his style, but if not no big deal. He can use it to wash his bike with or something.

I need more teenage boy ideas. Any boy ideas for that matter. I am just so use to thinking girl that I get stumped on the boys.

Fathers Day for instance is coming up. I have no idea what I could make for my husband. He will not wear a handmade tie, so I can count that out. Any ideas?

  1. Your sewing project are super cool! What a great gift for a teenager. Everyone needs a towel and this one has his favorite things on it!

    I'm now a follower - I just got a sewing machine for Mother's Day and I need to learn to use the dang thing!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a lovely comment!
