Me: What do you want for Christmas?
BF: Will you make me something?
Me: What would you like?
BF: Anything you make.

HELP! I make girl's clothing (for me). I've never made anything that isn't my size/I have no idea what there even is to make. I want it to be simple, easy, very boyish (he's a college athelete, so he's not going to wear like a knitted man-bag or a collage tie, get what I'm sayin?). Any ideas!?

Be careful with glitter. It never goes away. Glitter is the herpes of craft supplies.

I made my boyfriend a scarf once. He really liked it, but it ended up curling a lot, so I had to back it with fleece. It had illusion knitting that said <3 lisa
I think he liked the illusion part of it best, but I felt really awkward that I had only given him a scarf that I had made and he gave me a bunch of presents (I wasn't expecting that). I also made him 2 vests, but he had asked for those.

For sewing, a fleece scarf and beanie would be easy and you could do his school colors.

How bout a nice manly scoodie? Maybe do the outside out of old corduroy pants or jeans or cargo pants, leaving some pockets or other neato details on it. Hmm, maybe even a patchwork effect?
