Looking for gift ideas to sew for men? Dust off your machine because I have a list of fun ideas, all approved by my husband!
I will admit, I hate making lists for men/boys/girls/women because I don’t think every woman wants scarves, purses, and headbands any more than every man wants a grill-master aprons, leather beer coozies, and neck ties. I think picking fabric, colors, embellishments that represent the recipient’s interests can make lots of gifts great for anyone. But I also know that sometimes your brain just needs some choices, and that most of the men in my life would be happy to receive all of these. Let me know if I missed any of your favorite free sewing patterns for men and I’m happy to add it!
Please make sure to click through and pin images from the other sites, and if you’d like to pin this roundup, there is a nice long image at the bottom of the post!
