Fathers are special, and one way to show how much you care is with a handmade gift! Hand crafted projects are a wonderful way to customize a gift, and they also help show how much you care. Men can be hard to craft for, so we want to help. These fabulous gifts to sew for dad are sure to be a hit!
Preserve a favorite memory by turning a t-shirt into a pillow! Dad might not wear that old band or sports team shirt anymore, but he can still enjoy the image or logo on a cushiony pillow that he can relax with. Choose the perfect pillow size and start sewing!
Turn old neckties into a tuffet that’s perfect for his man cave! This one is super simple to create using Fairfield’s Round Tuffet kit. Use his old ties or his father’s old ties to create a gift that’s both functional and packed with memories.
While dad often doesn’t have an opinion about bedding and decor, he will love a blanket sized quilt to lounge with as he watches TV or tries to stay warm at a sporting event! Bold geometric patterns make a visual impact, or choose a design that represents something meaningful for the guy in your life.
