Pillows are perfect for creating a personalised present for Father’s Day, whether it’s for reserving a seat on the sofa for the football or to remind them just how much they mean to you. They can be made as easily as you want, with either a sewing machine or by just adding detail to an existing cushion with fabric glue.

Framed Prints

Handmade prints or pictures are the perfect way to frame memories for Father’s Day. They don’t need to be professionally done to look amazing, whether it’s hand painted calligraphy or simple paper cutting techniques. We love the idea of scrapbooking some of your favourite memories into a framed print!
