Tired of getting Dad ties every Father’s Day? We have your back! Celebrate the man of the hour by making thoughtful handmade gifts that reflect his personality. From cycling jerseys and dopp kits to cozy lounge pants, pick one-of-kind designs for a one-of-a-kind guy.
1. Linen Cotton Canvas Apron

3. Dogwood Denim™ Tool Belt
It’s time to level-up Dad’s Mr. Fix It status! We hear a DIY tool belt pairs perfectly with the brand new hammer he’s been asking for.
4. Camping Bandana
Planning a camping trip to celebrate Dad on Father’s Day? Surprise him with a handmade Cotton Poplin Ultra bandana commemorating your adventure in the wild. We’ve rounded up our favorite camping designs from the Marketplace, but if you want to make him a really happy camper, go the extra mile by scanning the map of his favorite trail and print it on fabric! Our popular recipe tea towel tutorial will get you started on how to scan!

6. Lounge Pants
Is Dad the king of the couch on Sundays? Let him relax in style with custom lounge pants in our super-cozy Fleece. No time to DIY? The Jasper Pajama Pants from Sprout Patterns can still be customized with his favorite Marketplace design but they’ll do the sewing for you when you choose their white glove sewing service.

Make sure Dad is keeping his toiletries in check while he’s on the road with the Portside Dopp Kit by Grainline Studio and available through Sprout Patterns.

Do Saturdays mean a trip to the market for Dad? Stitch up a reusable bag in under an hour for a quick and easy gift idea that he’ll be sure to use.
10. Handwritten Handkerchief
