GIFTS FOR THE BIRTHDAY BOY

One of my little guys turned 9 this week (yeah, I know, not so little anymore).  After seeing the monster shirt I made his cousin he requested his own.  I don't typically put the same monster on their shirts but it's what Sam wanted so that is what his Mama made him (honestly, I think he wanted the same monster because his brother designed it).  The only changes made were the colors (I do my best do use their favorites). 


I also made him a wallet.  He has been asking for one for a while now.  This seemed like the perfect time to get my rear in gear and make one for him.  I followed this great tutorial by Noodlehead.
Perfect for all the moolah and gift cards he received :)
(sheesh...I wish I was 9 again!!)

I am curious, do your kiddos request handmade gifts from you?

Your sewing projects are great, but your boy outshines them -- what a nice looking lad you have there.

What a lucky boy! The shirt and wallet are awesome. I have one daughter who is constantly asking me to sew things for her, and every time I finish a quilt, she asks if she can have it. lol My other daughter has her own little one now, so she asks me to make things for him. It's a great feeling, even though sometimes all the requests are overwhelming. lol

great wallet....my kids don't ask for anything really and seem to be often underwhelmed by the gifts i do make them

The shirt and the wallet are super cool. I don't have any kids but I have a 5 year old nephew and I love making him stuff. He's still young enough to love it no matter what.. Right now it happens to be short/pants for a bear.

Great job on that wallet! My daughter is still at the age where appreciates the things I make for her. Unfortunately, the things she usually requests are beyond my skill level!

Great birthday ideas ... sometimes it's tricky to find "guy"-type handmade gift ideas for boys. Nice work! Thanks for the link to the wallet tutorial ... might come in handy!
