In honor of the For the Boys Blog Hop, I'd like to share some of my favorite tutorials and free patterns I have come across. My turn on the hop is tomorrow, so come back to see what I put together for the occasion. In the meantime here are a few fantastic projects for the little guys in our life.
Max California has put together an awesome list of 76 free pants and shorts patterns/tutorials for boys of all ages. It's the proverbial gold mine of pants patterns!!
Martha Stewart.com has a printable pattern and instructions for these adorable mittens.
Vanilla Joy has this awesome tutorial for making ties in both boys and toddler sizes. This would be a great scrap buster and would be super adorable to use to make coordinating ties for family photos!
2Little Hooligans has an amazing tutorial on how to make a "real" tool belt for your little handy man!
Ok, so technically this could be for a girl or boy, but this tutorial by Me Sew Crazy is a fantastic way to recycle your old or thrifted sweaters into a cardigan fit for a boy.
Cozy Car Caddy by Homemade by Jill. This is the perfect solution to placating a car obsessed little boy during dinners out and in waiting rooms.
Check out this oh, so amazing and frugal tutorial by Shwin & Shwin on how to re-size an adult'd polo to fit a child. This is an awesome way to re-use old clothes or alter some thrift store finds that were too goo to pass up.
What boy doesn't want to be just like his daddy? Noodlehead has a great tutorial on how to make a quick and simple wallet.
Just Another Day in Paradise offers a quick and easy belt pattern that requires very little effort for a fun accessory.
Another great tutorial from Noodlehead on how to reuse old pants to make a drawstring bag, perfect for toting around cars, superheroes and army men.
These are just a few of the incredible projects you can find to make for the boy in your life. We all know there are so many dresses, ruffles and tutus patterns everywhere for the girls but there are still so many amazing projects that you can find for boys.
I hope you will stop back tomorrow to see my project for the For the Boys blog hop.
