Ok, so my daughter's birthday is coming up in February.  We're having mostly our friends and their children over, most are girls (the kids) my daughter's age so making cute little totes to hold their party supplies will be easy.

However, there will be two boys there...and I have no idea what to do for the boys.  I mean, the contents of the giftbags will be the same, I'm just wondering about the giftbag itself.  How do I make a gift bag for a boy so that he won't go..."Ew...its a purse...it's for girls!"  Car Applique?  Sports theme embroidery?  Help.

Wist this way!.

What if you make them little backpacks.

Just really simple one.  Like a tote but with backpack straps and a flap.

Plus they can have a boyish theme.

That's a great idea.  I could do them all in denim and then do the design in girly or non girly embroidery.

Off to hunt for  a tutorials.

You could also make them fanny packs.  I made one out of camo for my (at the time) 5-year-old nephew:


For that, I made a half circle shape with a gusset, plus a flap with velcro on it.  I inserted hardware (adjustable) at the top of the sides on the back.  In the second pic you can see I pinched the gusset at the top, otherwis it tended to flop open.



Until you find something worth dying for, you're not really living.
