Make it for DAD: Fashionista Fathers

Make it for DAD: Fashionista Fathers

Forget about "gone fishing" signs and "golf anyone" trinket boxes. Grab some fabric paints, freezer paper, iron-ons and get creative making one-of-a-kind fashions for your pop, pal or hubby.

Make this easy reverse applique design with a faded eagle iron-on and some iron-on studs. For complete instructions visit my page at Plaid!

For this design I attached a flocked skull iron-on to a grey satin tie. I positioned the tie at a slight angle for a little interest. Visit my page at Plaid Online for all the skinny.

Hammer slinging Dads will love this design! All you need is a bottle Folkart fabric paint and a funky plaid tie. For this design I used the freezer paper stencil technique. For complete instructions visit my project page at plaid.

Trophy Dad

For this design, I used the same painting technique as in the D.I.Y. Dad tie and I added some iron-on studs.

Stenciled and Stitched for Dad

Go free form with this design. Overlap large and small stencils and paint with different colors of Folkart fabric paint. After the paint dries, sew random stitches over the entire design. For step-by-step instructions visit my project page at Plaid.


  1. I love these projects - Great ideas as usual! The embellished ties give me lots of ideas.

  2. Great projects!


  3. I love these! Especially the hammer one. Problem is my DH is not handy around the house. Maybe I could use the technique with a remote control in place of the hammer. LOL.

  4. Girl - you rock. Seriously. Steve too.

  5. These are great ideas. I especially love that last shirt!


I love comments and questions. Sometimes it takes me a few days to reply. Have a wonderful day!
