Gift Ideas for Dad: Day 1

How do you honor or celebrate the dads in your life? Father's Day is fast approaching, and we've got a full week of ideas (and manly fabrics) for you!

Neckties seem to be the scapegoat stereotype of men's gift giving. 
"Oh, thanks, dear, another tie...just what I wanted," he says with a sigh. 

But with the right fabric and pattern, you can sew a personalized tie that's sure to be a hit! Forget paisleys or stripes; choose a themed fabric that has meaning for your guy and get started!

Kate over at See Kate Sew has a quick and easy pattern for a trendy skinny tie (pointed or square end, your choice). We loved it, and couldn't resist trying it out in some Tee Time fabric from Kanvas: A gift for the tie wearer and the golfer, all wrapped up in one! 

Find Kate's tutorial here, and don't miss her cool tie-tying animation at the end of the post!

See the entire Tee Time collection on our Facebook page or our website

Be sure to stop back tomorrow for another gift idea and tutorial link for the men in your life!
