gifts for guys idea round up

Y’all already know, and love Made by Rae, I’m sure of it! And today she’s OUR guest!

Oh Rae. How I love you and your gorgeous, precise sewing (sunsuits and tights and beautiful bags) and your clean prettiness! The Buttercup Bag is one of my all time favorites (I made a couple last year!) and don’t get me started on the Pierrot top (adore).

And Rae is HERE today with a round up of Guy Goodness from around the internet… yep, more Gifts for Guys ideas! 

Hi everyone! I’m Rae of Made by Rae and I’m thrilled to be here today to help provide some gift-making inspiration for the guys in your life! To do this I want to showcase some great tutorials from the “Celebrate the BOY” series that Dana of MADE and I have co-hosted on our blogs for the last couple of years. We have hosted two month-long winter “Celebrate the BOY” series in 2010 and 2011 and a shorter one-week summer series this past June.

The focus of Celebrate the BOY is often sewing garments for (little) boys, but we’ve had a number of guests who have presented wonderful projects that would also make great gifts for boys, teens, and men. So I thought it would be fun to put together a collection of 20 great posts from Celebrate the BOY here on kojo designs!

[Note: I'm listing them here with the name of the blog they came from; clicking on the link or the picture will bring you back to their feature post and a link to the tutorial so you can make one too]
