How about a golf towel--you put a grommet in the fold at top for hook on their golf bags and add a golfing embroidery saying fitting for a man.
A gift that has been a big hit in my family has been a chair-side caddy that holds a remote, pen, magazine, glasses, etc. I weight the non-pocket side with plastic pellets or rice to keep it in place. I don't have a pattern; I just make it up.
I like the idea of a steering wheel cover for the hot sun. Could look up proper figures and Embroidery on it
" In 5 minutes Temperature in here will be 45 deg C"
Something like that.
Also what about a zipper purse for IOU's. (printed out on the computer)
I owe you a breakfast in bed.
I owe you a Lawn Mow
I owe you a Quiet Sunday afternoon Nap.
Good ideas, tool kit bag sounds good!!
I think monogrammed handkerchief would make a good gift.
I've made apron using black material with a coffee cup on it. I've also used eagle designs, and "plays with fire" in a split fire design for men too. Key fobs?
I knew you girls would have some great ideas
Sewing machine project - cut legs off of worn out jeans. Cut legs in half. Sew across one end. At the other end, make a drawstring top with a shoe lace through it. Tool roll for the car, garage, kitchen, basement, etc. You could embroider something simple on it, like "Dad's basic tools". The remaining piece can make a really cute shoulder bag for mom or teen.
I make lots of steering wheel covers , and embroider a car design on the front , they are use in summer when you get out of the car just pop it over the wheel when your have to park in the sun and then you dont come back to a red hot steering wheel
My suggestions are, what about key ring tags, or suit case tags for holidays. Quick and easy to make on felt scraps. Glasses case not too fancy, Note book covers, shoe bags, or iPad covers. Sandra.
What about an apron with bbq tools on it? Or maybe a chef's hat? Maybe something for golf or bowling?
Hmmm, the first thing that comes to mind is a zippered toiletries bag...not sure why, but that's what I'm thinking...or perhaps a BBQ apron for the father that grills...or perhaps a sports towel or towel for the gym...
Brilliant minds. lol
