Welcome to The Round Robin Edition 21 – Sewing For Men.
in the sewing room
My dad had a birthday recently and it reminded me that I had made him a quilt for his 66th birthday. Our last name is Phillips….so the Phillips 66 birthday was a big one 😉
Somehow I don’t have a picture of it! It sits in his office on the couch…. I need to sneak a quick minute with it and get a new picture!
What I do have a picture of is the boys quilts- Wheelies. They have been used and loved, and still live!
For these, I decided to use a wool batting (it’s actually an old wool blanket) and those are wonderful! First time I ever tried it, and would totally do it again. It makes the quilt so snuggly and wraps right around anything. Washes up great as well since they were used wool blankets to begin with.
today’s topic sewing for men
Father’s Day is quickly approachingor maybe you are looking for an easy sewing project you can make your man! It’s hard to find a good quilt for dads.let alone something different!
A few ideas apron for some bbq yummies, a leather wallet, golf bag towel, pj pants, a t-shirt quilt, and a few camp things.
Guys are a little hard to sew for. My honey tends to be a little bit more picky and thus, I don’t usually go this direction. But, after looking around for a little big, I found that maybe there were some things that could be sewn for them that they would be totally ok with.
