TOP 10 Creative Gifts for Father's Day (sewing patterns)

Father’s Day is coming up! It's that time of the year where we get to celebrate dads for all the great things they do. Whether it's helping you with car trouble, being handymen with their tools, or simply opening that jar you can't open; it's always nice to have someone strong and supportive in the house.  We want to celebrate the contributions that dads make in our lives, so we thought they might appreciate a handmade gift. Have you been wondering about making something unique for the Father's day this year? To help you with a few ideas, we’ve put together this list of suggested items you could sew for your dad!

  1. Apron made with AGF denim fabric.

Wouldn’t that be cute if your dad proudly wore an apron made by you whenever he prepares a family barbecue? You can even embroider text that says: “Dad’s Apron” on it! We're sure he'll be more eager to cook wearing something handmade! ;) What’s even better is that the apron pattern is really easy to cut out and sew! Click here to download apron pattern

  1. Coasters for his favorite drink

How about those hexagon coasters? They will come handy for his favorite drink during a football game or for the morning cup of coffee in his office. You should be able to sew these denim coasters even if you just began your journey with sewing! Plus, the handmade stitches give them an extra crafty touch. See here how to sew denim coasters

  1. Summer Shirt

This colorful shirt would make your dad happy and ready to go for a relaxing weekend trip!  Surprise him and sew this shirt with colorful fabric of your choice from our recently released fabric collection: Boardwalk Delight.   If he's a bit more toned down when it comes to fashion, you can always make this shirt in AGF denim. ;)


  1. Every Day Necktie
