5 Father’s Day Gifts to Sew & Embroider

Here are five Father’s Day gifts to sew, some of which are even easy enough for kids to sew themselves.

Dad String Art

Pick up a canvas and outline letters using a lightbox. Poke holes along the letter outlines and then thread a needle with two to three strands of Sulky 12 wt. Cotton Petites thread (choose a Blendables thread for a neat look). Instruct the kids to sew back and forth through the holes until the desired look is achieved. Dad can hang this in the office, garage or work space and keep it forever! This project by the blog teachbesideme is great for kids of all ages as a Father’s Day gift to sew.

Kraft Tex Wallet for Father’s Day

Kraft Tex is a really cool medium that looks like leather, but sews like fabric. It’s malleable and weathers nicely. You can even wash it! Find a simple wallet pattern, like this one, and use Sulky Poly Deco thread for strength and sewability.
