I am from india. I have free sewing training centre for widows n destitute women. I love your site. Great ideas to sew for boys. I have 3 grandsons. Love your creative ideas for boys.
That’s awesome! I love India! I have many friends from India. And they make the best food ever! 🙂

Ahhh-dorable!!!! I have two boys that would LOVE all of these!!! How creative you are! Now, I need to get grandma to sew these for them. 😉
Love love love your site! I am a first time seamstress and your directions were so easy to follow. I made the lego carrier and my little guy is so excited. Keep the boy ideas coming! Thanks for sharing.
Love hearing things like this!
How about a play barn, or play mat?
To the comment above, I, too, can vouch for the complete and utter barren crafty wasteland that is cool sewing ideas for little boys. My son has no interest in dolls, doll clothing, frilly dresses, princess dress up, cuddly pillows or even most stuffed animals. Not my choice, totally his. It just seems that there are so many little “girl” crafts, it takes forever to find simply gender neutral ones like these! If my son wanted to wear a tutu, then GREAT! There are a million tutu tutorials, but he doesn’t. If someone has a little girl that doesn’t like the “girly” tutorials online, I feel for you too! Thanks CLP for these awesome ideas! I’ll be making a car wallet for my son and crayon totes for my 2 nieces.
More gender neutral ideas:
– Bean bags (little kids LOVE tossing stuff!)
– Kids Apron
– Seek & Find Bags (http://www.museofthemorning.com/museblog/2012/seek-aamp-find-bag-tutorial/)
– Fabric roll up chalkboard
This list is great! I really want to learn how to sew, and I was lamenting that there aren’t many boy projects, which kind of bummed me out since I have a 19 month old son. Your list got me excited to pursue learning how to sew. Thanks!
I’m digging these, especially the Dino Hoodies…
Hmm. Well, i know my 2 girls would love to play with *everything* in this list. Trying to be ‘equal’ by not just having girly sewing projects is not being equal, except equally sexist. 😀 No offense or nothing, but any kid would love a lot of these projects, not just boys.
Sure, little girls might love all these projects-so go for it! But also realize that there are about 5 million ideas of things to sew for little girls and about 25 ideas of things to sew for boys. (As a mom of boys I can vouch for that.) So this roundup is to help people like me who want to sew things for boys. If you want to sew them for girls too, more power to you!
Agreed! There are almost no sewing ideas on the internet for boys. Just go to clothing stores and look for decent clothes for boys is getting hard. I have no interest in putting my son who is 5 years old in clothes with skulls on them! Ugh! Whats up with this trend!?!

Thank you Amber – I am struggling to find anything I want for boys. Labelling ‘for boys’ really helps my searches. 🙂
Thanks got my joys sewing😀
Yes, thank you for clarifying that. It is very hard to find things to sew for my son. If I go to target, Walmart, any store there is always a huge girls selection and small boys. With sewing and craft making there is way more to do for girls this is just a fact. Thank you for these patterns! My son absolutely loves them ❤️
What a great list, I have made those little pirate hats and they are great you can even do a blanket stitch around the edges, I made them for my son’s pirate party and did pink around the edges for the girls, they loved them
