November 16 ~ Gifts for Dads
|Dads seem to be notoriously difficult to a) shop, and b) craft for… No longer! Today we have lots of great ideas; one of them is bound to appeal to a dad on your list!|
|Soaps for Kids to Make
Anne-Marie of Bramble Berry and Teach Soap has a fun Soaps for Kids to Make Tutorial via whip up. It’s a nice project to get kids excited about making gifts for Dad.
|Garden Toolbelt Roll-Up
With the right fabrics this could be just the thing for Dad. Enjoy Cat’s Garden Toolbelt Roll-Up Tutorial from Cut Out + Keep.
|1×1 Ribbed Hat
We think lots of men on our holiday lists would appreciate this “guy cap,” a 1×1 Ribbed Hat Pattern from Liz at Kis*Knit.
Henrik has an easy-to-follow Tie Tutorial in Craftster so you can customize Dad’s attire!
Here are just a handful of fabrics we love for some of these projects. Click on the fabric images to visit the Sew,Mama,Sew! shop:

|Ties from Cyberoptix TieLab
If you’re not up to making ties, you have options! These are the coolest ties we’ve seen in a long time. Cyberoptix TieLab creates hand screenprinted neckties with a huge variety of designs. They also offer optional packaging upgrades to help make a gift look extra-special.
|Peanut Butter Blossoms
Pete has a delicious Peanut Butter Blossoms Recipe on his Pete-Bakes blog. Lots of dads are partial to that yummy peanut butter and chocolate combo!
