More fabulous fabric has been arriving the shop recently and we think this selection would be fantastic for Father’s Day. You’ve still got a whole week and a half before you have to make a fuss of the old man, so why not take a butchers at some of these slightly more masculine prints and have a think about what gifts you could make for him? Or if he’s the sewing sort himself, grab him a fat quarter bundle or treat him to a couple of metres to make a shirt or perhaps a pair of summer shorts. However you decide to make much of the men in your life, we’ve plenty of inspiration to get you started.
We can summer shorts and funky shirts being made out of these wonky spot and hand drawn cross prints. Teal and slate grey mix nicely with off white for a contemporary look here – transform your dad into an on trend hipster with one of these!
Got a dad who loves woodwork? Check out the woodgrain designs in teal and cream – perfect for washbags or even a woodworking apron.
Go mid century modern with these jumbled up squares and rectangles in teal, brown, grey and yellow. Perfect for cushions to cosy up your dad’s favourite chair.
Science and maths fiends will love the periodic table and equations designs – try out a phone case or maybe a wallet in these funky designs.
Vintage loving dads will be thrilled with anything created in these gorgeous prints – old style letters and adverts or rulers make for unusual prints that creative dads will really go for. Make a laptop case or perhaps some cushions for the study.
