    I am having a hard time trying to figure out a small sewing project for all the men in our family. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Maybe a "manly" pillowcase reflecting a favorite hobby?

    I like this idea. Would you consider doing a tutorial for the rest of us?

    Many years ago DH had me make a bag to hold the jumper cables in our car. One trick: he wanted something that wouldn't move around in the trunk. I made a fitted bag and sewed a couple of strips of heavy duty velcro (prickly side) on one side. Worked great. It's really a big deal now that we have a van. One less thing to worry about getting under foot or flying around when the brakes are applied. Good luck. - Shirley
