Making Presents for Men
Do any of you make presents for the men in your life? Aren't they difficult? Here are a couple of suggestions.
Even a man who wouldn't be seen dead with a 'man bag' might occcasionally need something to carry stuff in - sports kit, for example. This looks like a good bag for a man, but there don't seem to be any instructions - a list of materials and the photos. It might be enough for you to follow, though. This is on Fab Art Diy.
There are, however, instructions for this one on Weekend Designer:
It's a bit simpler, and would make a good sports bag for a man or teenage boy.
Cover for a Kindle, tablet, iPhone etc
Many of the hand-made covers for electronic devices are patchwork and very pretty - not very masculine. It might work if you choose your fabrics carefully, or perhaps make this denim one from old jeans? (Found on Hub pages.)
This cover (by Ann Kelle) would be suitable for a man, with a careful choice of contrast fabrics. I would suggest no flowers! Maybe different plain fabrics (textured?) in toning colours.
This is also a great cover to make for any men you make things for, found on Biscuit Monster:
Wine bottle cover
And finally, a fabric cover for a wine bottle from About Home.
