Handsewn Gifts for Him

Yesterday I shared a collection of lovely tutorials I have found to make gifts for women. Today, I’m sharing some equally lovely step by step guides to make gifts for men. With Christmas fast approaching, there is still time to get ahead and come up with some really special gift ideas.

And if you love to sew, why not take a minute to join my Creative Sewing Challenge? You get a lovely prompt sent to your inbox each month, along with a collection of ideas like these that tie into the theme. Its just an easy way to help keep us all sewing when life gets busy! Free, fun and open to anyone, sign up below or find out more here.

I love this brilliant glasses case tutorial from Sew with SO by Spencer Og.

When it comes to gifts, slippers are a bit of a Christmas classic, but how much more special would it be if you had made them? Take a look at this DIY felt and Leather Slippers Tutorial by Lia Griffith to see if this might be your cup of tea.

For the book-lover in your life, try this simple quilted bookmark by Melanie Ham.

Or these Shibori bookmarks by Vicky Myers Creations would be a great addition to a note or sketch book (to help keep all those extra bits and pieces safe inside).

Or if, like me, the old staple of a bottle of red remains the best and most appreciated gift you could offer, why not add a bit of a sewing florish by making your own tote gift bag? Here’s a great tutorial by Jamie Sanders.

Don’t forget to join the Creative Sewing Challenge. Tomorrow, the gift-making theme continues when I’ll be showcasing some free tutorials to make handsewn gifts for babies, children and older kids. In the meantime, here’s a lovely pin to save for a rainy day.
