Box type is so manly and perfect for their celebration.
thank you. Now I'm pondering the type of fabric
I would suggest rip-stop nylon (lined with nylon taffeta if you want a lining). It is water resistant, sturdy and light weight to pack and also easy to sew without so much bulk as a heavier fabric.
I think this type of bag would be perfect. I made one for my 11 yr old grandson and he loves it. Choose a nice fabric to suit his interests or maybe patriotic fabric or denim would work well. I also line it with iron on vinyl to make it water resistant. The tutorial for it came from Craftsy. PM me if you need help. Hugs. Nan W
Great idea! I'm going to see if it is still there. I have 2 grandsons who would love this made from Super hero fabric!
Thank you for the link and info. When I get my projects dine, I will post photos
Hi Jennifer, I'm assuming that these boys are around 16-18 years old. I'm not sure whether they are old enough to shave or not, but I like the idea of a Toiletries bag that Marian has suggested. I've attached a post from Toogie from 4 years ago, but I'm sure you could find something similar to make.
Another suggestion would be a coin purse. Something small that the boys could fit in their trouser/short pockets, or even their shirts, if they have a pocket. Love Chris
Thank you for those suggestions. I will look at all the boxed bags I can find. My issue is the sewing of the corners can get so thick. I need to use a fusible batting or interfacing so I can trim it better.
I think the bag would be a wonderful gift. And maybe add a tee shirt with his name and add Eagle Scout. Any young man who has earned this title is pretty special.
They really are special. I had the pleasure of having one of them in my Sunday school class for two years. Great families.
A boxed Zipper Bag would be very useful to the young men they would be able to take on camping trips etc. Toogie has made many of them for males.
I raised mostly girls and have always had problems figuring out gifts for the males young or old. I am curious what ideas others will have.
I only had girls too, so I'm a little clueless. Both of the families of these boys are not wealthy, but they aren't needy either, so these boys have all they need.
I have 4 sons. They are all grown up now but those box type bags would be perfect. You can use outdoorsy type fabrics or maybe cammo. Camping with a tent (not a camper) would work too. It might help to find out what these great kids are interested in or plan on doing after high school. That may give you more ideas.
