Hi I am new to craftser and to sewing.  I just taught myself to sew last month and made a rag quilt and I love it.  So now I am looking for crafts to make for my niece and nephews.  Its seems to be easy to find projects to make for girls but not boys.  Any suggestions?

I do not sew but i think you could get a pattern/directions on how to make like a sort of games/ cd pouch? or when they take there console away a bag for leadds etc! Smiley

I have little interest in school or hobbies so I came to craftster to see if I could find something to do! I'm 14 with nothing to do. I <3 my doggie Jake Smiley my friends too <3 now all I have to find is the missing piece to my personality...

It would probably help to know their ages.

I've made the no sew fleece quilts for my sons when they were in high school. They still use them on their beds today and they are now in college.

For younger boys, you can always make a stuffie IE: a teddy bear, a dinosaur, monster etc.  You might also find a pattern to make a stuffed car, a baseball bat, football and so on.

I agree with Onyxnox, ages would be helpful.  But that said, I have a long to-make list for my son, who will be three in May.  Maybe they will give you some ideas:

Tool belt
Monster stuffie (mentioned in last post - great idea)
Monster tooth pillow
Travel art case
I Spy bag
Robot quilt
Memory game
ABC book
Applique t-shirts

For an older boy: Lunch money cuff (I think I'm making this for a friend's son who is turning 10 next month: http://www.lemonsqueezyhome.com/2010/09/lunch-money-cuff-tutorial.html)

If the kid is young you could make a felt board with his favorite characters on it (I made a Spongebob one for my nephew). Blankets and pillows are a good idea for guys of any age, you could even base designs off of their favorite games.

A simple tote bag for those toys that have lots of parts, such as nerf gun spongy bullets

I like these pillow weapons here on Craftster.

I'm not a great fan of weapons for youngsters, even though they are stuffies.  I think it lets children know it's ok to fight with guns and knives etc.  If you like that idea than it might be better to crochet some make believe boxing gloves.  I think stuffed cars, trucks, animals and sports items like bats and balls are much better.
