I love making home made things for my bloke, Mr. Coleman, and he really appreciates it, in fact, he does quite a lot of crafting himself. But I found this last Christmas I was struggling to come up with ideas for a handmade gift for a MAN.
Finally, a brainwave hit!! Mr. Coleman had a Beatles t-shirt with a few holes around the arm and neck, so I decided to turn it into a cushion. He loves it, and so many guests have commented on it when they see it on our couch for the first time (mostly guys and Beatles fans!!)
It was just too easy. I simply cut the shirt to the shape of an old cushion we had lying around (square) and then sewed it up together, adding some red ribbon to the back opening. The back's not perfect, but it does the job!
Lots of guys have t-shirts that they're quite attached to that have seen better days, either favourite bands, sports shirts etc. I think this is a great way to up cycle an old shirt and make a handmade gift that's COOL but not CUTE for a guy in your life!! I encourage you to give it a go next Birthday, Christmas, Father's Day..or whenever the need for a gift for your loved one pops up!
Have you got any other handmade gift ideas specifically for guys!!? I need more!!
