Default Ribbons for Boys

I wanted to get everyones opinion for some ribbon crafting for boys. I was thinking about making ribbon belts. You would just sew the ribbon to two "D" rings and then at the other end make a hem. I saw some ribbon that boys might like: camo, football, basketball, and baseball. It would be nice to make something for boys. What do you all think?

I think that would be a great idea. You could make belts to match custom appliqued tees and shorts. Also another idea was a child lease in boy colored ribbons. Hmmm, have to think more on that.

I made several for my three year old son. Nothing fancy..just basic, as i could not find a belt to fit him. What I love about them is I just leave them in his pants and wash them...I have one in each pair of pants...it makes it so easy. They are loose enough that you can still pull his pants up and down. But tight enough so his pants don't fall off him. I think they are the best! Maybe wash some of yours and you could use this as a selling point!

oops sorry, I didn't read that you want to use ribbon. I think that would be great too. My son's belts are not ribbon. They are the webbing...but I would think that a ribbon type applique like some of you create with your wood burner would be cute on this type of belt. I just might not wash it with the jeans.

I'm thinking about trying to do clip on bow ties (for little boys) with large ribbon or fabric, but haven't tried it yet

I've thought about making one of these for my son. I know if I can create a velcro tutu I can do a belt

I love the dinosaur tails that some people have made on etsy! Soooooooo cute!!! (attach with a belt)
Also, I've been making lego tie tacks and cufflink sets--they're a hit!
