For Him - Week 5

This weeks theme is "For Him." We have got some awesome stuff! It makes me wish I had a little boy too!

If I had planned this better I would have coincided this week with Dana and Rae's blogs last month. They were "Celebrating the Boy" the whole month of February. Everything was devoted to boy themed crafts. If you'd like to see what they came up with check out their blogs. And Kim at 733 hosts a 'What are boys made of?' roundup every Thursday. Check her out too!

If you missed the other announcements yesterday...check them out here.

*Both voting and the giveaway are open until Friday night at 8 pm MST


Craft #1 - Golf on the Go

Many of us have lots of Hims in our lives. Mine range from Young Hims, to Old Hims, to In-between Hims.

This week I decided to craft for my In-between Him. And like many he LOVES to golf. When you love to golf and when your walking destination ends at a park a putter, ball, and golf tee's usually come along. So I created Golf On The Go. Simply keep this baby by your back door or in your trunk and on your way out just grab it.

Trust me, He'll LOVE it!

The handle makes it very easy to carry while you are walking. And the cozy, which I made out of an old sweater, will be oh so kind to the actual golf club head.

When you get to the park, Slide your club out of the cozy and unsnap the roll up and inside you will find...

Your golf ball and tee's of course!

And just for your washing convenience, the roll up will come completely off the cozy. Which also makes it perfect for him when he wants just his club and cozy or just his golf ball and tee roll up!

Craft #2 - Little Man Shoes

Some dads might not readily admit to this, but I have heard from reliable sources that they like it when their boys dress like them! For such occasions I've made "Little Man Shoes" for a brand new 0-6 month old.
They are fashioned after Dad's favorite shoes, just in miniature! With hand stitching, grommets, and laces like the originals, your new little guy will be following in his Daddy's footsteps at an early age!

Craft #3 - Dino Land Suitcase

My little guy loves dinosaurs. He can't get enough of them. I wanted to create a magical place for him to play with all his creatures.
Using an old suitcase, foam sealer and stuff around the house I made the perfect spot for his dinosaurs to roam.
It may not look like it, but the suitcase does close shut and can be tucked away under a bed. How ideal is that, it has it's own carrying case? The thing that I love about it is that everything but the dinosaurs are intact. There is no set-up, no take-down and no small pieces floating around the house.

Craft #4 - Monster Cloth

I decided to interpret this theme with my little boys in mind! As I was contemplating my craft for this week, I was bathing my sons and I thought about how cute it would be to have a fun washcloth for them in the tub. I thought that if I had a cute washcloth, it would be much easier to get my kids in the tub for baths and that's how the Monster Cloth was born.

This set of four terrycloth washcloths were so easy to make, and they are so perfect to get those little dirty boys, clean!

Craft #5 - Sailboat Shower Curtain & Towels

Arrr Matey!

Calling all Captains! Get ready to set sail on the 'bubbly' sea. bring your floaty toys and your wash cloth!

Let the adventure begin for the little boys in your life with this Appliqued shower curtain and towels.

Your little captains will take adventure to the high seas every time they take a bath.

So when it's time to 'swab the decks' they may just listen!

Craft #6 - Guitar Case

For this week's challenge, I made a soft guitar case for my hubby. The durable exterior unzips to expose a plush sherpa lining. Freezer paper stenciling adds a personalized touch.

I love the dinosaur suitcase!!! Love Love Love it! And would LOVE a tutorial!! Did I say I LOVE it???

Maman Tattoo said...

I've made my choice, Nice stuff ladies!

Dana said...

WOW, I love the dinosaur case. I am a foster mother of two. My older foster child has meetings that my four year old finds boring. We always bring toys... But, WOW, this would be the most perfect toy for him to play with at these meetings! I am SURE it would keep him occupied for a LONG time. I love what all the ladies did, but this is the first time I've left a comment and can't wait for a tutorial that I MUST do. :)

Tinkr said...

that dinosaur case is amazing!!! I am dying to see this tutorial!

Molly said...

This is the best week yet! So hard to choose!

Ammie said...

These are great! I don't want to have to choose just one! I can see us using several of these projects at our house: the guitar case (for my classic guitarist husband), the dino case, the eye washcloths, and those adorable booties (can we say Mama size, too?). The shower curtain & towels would also come in handy... once we own our own house & I care more about home decor. The golf case is cute, too, but we don't golf around here. ;) In other words, thanks for the awesomeness!

Lisa Anne said...

What great ideas. So my son starts golf on Sunday, What a great gift If I made those for him. he also plays the guitar and would love if I made him the case!!

Dinglefest said...

We should still be able to vote for a couple hours, right? My pick would be the booties, but it says the poll is closed. :(

Everything is wonderful, but I have to confess, that dinosaur case steals the show! Will there be a tutorial? I so want to do this!!! Amazing. What little boy wouldn't give anything to have a portable dinosaur world like that? TOO COOL.

Bailey said...

OMG!! Love the dino case!! I am trying this with or without a tutorial...but it would go much smoother with a tutorial :) I also love the sailboat shower curtain, it is so cute!
