Is it just me or do you find it difficult as well to come up with fun things to sew for the men in your life? All things fabric and quilted seem much too soft and feminine to me.
Trying to come up with handmade gifts for men can result in some pretty 'interesting' projects. But I personally don't know any man with a great desire to own a quilted tool belt ;-)
Imagine my delight when my Mr. asked me to sew him something! He has just bought himself a new i-pad and in his quest to keep the toy in pristine condition asked me to sew him some sort of case to keep it in. I happily took on my mission to come up with the right shape and size and most of all find the perfect fabric for it.
When I came across this wonderful print by Alexander Henry, I knew that it was just perfect for the job.
It was a little fiddly to get the fabric alignment just right so none of the 'ladies' got decapitated! I am glad it all worked out in the end. The rest of this i-pad sleeve came together quite easily.
My Mr. says it rocks, I call that a mission accomplished!
What kind of things do you like to sew for your husbands, boyfriends, fathers and brothers? I'd love to know!
