Handmade Gifts for Dad

Hello, Makers!

I'd like to start this day on a good note so it sets the tone for the rest of the week! It’s been a busy month especially after finishing up Mother’s Day projects, but now that Father’s Day is around the corner, it’s time to get those sewing machines running to make them feel extra special this year with the perfect gift, and what’s more thoughtful than a handmade one? Check out some of my favorite curated projects that are ideal for this special day! From quilts to fast and easy projects like the popular bucket hats, I’m sure you will find the one that makes your quilty hearts skip a beat. 

Our "Wilderness" free quilt pattern was a smashing hit on social media, and if your dad loves the outdoors, we are sure he will love it too! Combining wanderlust vibes from our "Little Forester Fusion" fabrics and simple half-square triangles is all it takes to create this beauty.

For the next quilt feature, I want to give a special shoutout to Carolina Moore our AGF Sewcialite, who created this “Gallery Wall” quilt for Maureen Cracknell’s collection, “Enchanted Voyage”! This collection is great for any dad that loves the ocean, and this quilt gives a lot of opportunities to frame his favorite prints.

The last quilt that I think would be a great gift for dad is the “Bracken Quilt” made by Julia Wachs since it’s filled with exciting colors from our Decostitch Elements! An ideal make to show off gradients of color, plus this pattern is a great introduction to foundation paper piecing.

We all have busy lives, so here are some bonus projects in case you run out of time!

If you have a dad like me, he likes to change out his wallet almost every year. This project is super easy to make and it’s the next one on my sewing list for Father’s Day!

Bucket hats are trending! So make one for your dad to keep him in style. Summer is pretty much here, so these are perfect for him to wear whenever he’s cutting the lawn, out on the beach, or even on a walk!
