New Flickr Group


As I blog surf, I've noticed that there is an abundance of cute girly things. . . quilts, clothes, totes. . . many of them are inspiring and I love to look at them. However, being the mom of three boys, as much as I would love to create these sweet items, I just don't know that many little girls to give them away to. I'm sure I'm not the only one in this situation.

So I've started a new flickr group called Handmade Crafts for Boys where people looking to make things for the little guys in their lives can go to get ideas. If you've made sweet things for little boys, please come by and post your pictures! There are already quite a few there posted by some generous (and talented) crafters, so please go take a look, and if you're so inclined you are welcome to join us!

What a great idea! Boys *are* so much harder to find ideas for. I rarely make my son anything much - shame on me!

Helen said...

So true! I recently looked to your quilt pictures for inspiration for a quilt I'm making for my new "nephew"

I love this idea!

Rachel said...

finally...crafting for boys...thanks for the link...

Rosa said...

You're right. Everything is cute and feminine. Boys get the short end of the stick. Whenever I plan something to craft, it is usually for me or for my dd. Thanks for giving me inspiration to more for my ds.

That is a great idea! I will definately be by! Oh, and I love the wedgie bag, and am so jealous of that figure I see in the mirror.

Never did I look that good, not even after the babe turned a year.

Cathy said...

Great idea! I'm in the same boat... I love to look at all the sweet girly things but they don't work for my son.

I've just found your blog, and bless your heart for doing this!
I have a baby boy and feeling a bit sad that I won't be able to sew cute things for him - but now I have some inspiration!!
thanks!!

joyce said...

i think i'll feel guilty b/c now that i have a girl i probably will make more things for her than for my son...the only thing i've make for him is a sweater...(but i do hope to sew him pj's once i learn how).

nuttnbunny said...

Fantastic! Can't wait to (1) see what others post and (2) make and post some of my own. Thanks for the great idea and making it happen!

Your right blogs tend to be rather girly, mine is as my son won't allow me to post anything about him anymore !! Well done on starting up the new flikr group.

Lindsey said...

My husband says me blogging is enough but you have just given me a *valid* reason to start looking on flickr. Thank you :)

this is great, I have just joined too, I will look through my archives for relevant pics, then try and think up some new ideas, I know my boy will appreciate it!
