Inspiration: Father's Day Gifts

 Father's Day is coming and we have to be ready for it. Not only with breakfast in bed, day plans, but also a gift.

My 10 year old daughter is making a lot of preparations for that day including a handmade card, breakfast, washing his car, pampering him, and obviously asking me over and over, “what are we buying the guys (Dad and Grandpa)?”

The question is: What can we give my husband and my father that shows them how important and loved they are? The fact is that there is not the magical gift for all Dads, since all of them are different.
To begin my search for the perfect gift I asked myself a couple of questions just to make it easier for me to pick the right gifts and save some time.
What my your budget? 
What is your dad’s favorite activity? Does he have a hobby?


What is his job?     

What is his participation at home? Does he enjoy cooking or grilling for us?

Does he love to play a sport?     

    What does he do with his friends? Does he golf or bowl, watch games?

Does he enjoy dressing & accessorizing?



    Does he enjoy grooming? 

Personalize Shaving Bowl


What does he do around when resting at home?


Once I answered these questions I highlighted the answers that I know are his favorite things to do or enjoys the most. Then I was ready to surf those web pages and pick something!

DIY Tutorial: Infinity Scarves

Have a person on your gift list, but have no idea what to get for them? Making a gift is the perfect idea and it will be even more thoughtful than a silly little gift they don't really want anyway.
Infinity scarves are super easy and quick to make. They are called infinity scarves because they look like a continuous piece of fabric in a tubular form. You can make them in almost any type of knit. Knits come in so many different prints that you can make one for every outfit in your closet. 
Here is what you will need:  - Sewing machine - 1/2 yard of knit fabric (sweater knit, rayon knit, ITY knit, cotton knit, etc) Should also be 58/60" wide.  - Thread to match - Hand sewing needle
1) Fold the 1/2 yard piece of knit in half the long way. Pin along the entire long edge. 

2) Using a thin zig-zag stitch (almost straight stitch), stitch the long edge. I pull slightly on the front and back of the fabric as it goes through the sewing machine so that when the scarf is finished, it can b…

Made by a Fabricista: Classic Ponte Knit Pieces!

Happy Saturday All!
I am so over this heat here in South Florida!  The humidity and the high temperature feels like 100+ degrees each day.  I can't wait for Fall so that I can truly enjoy the cooler temperatures.
Whenever Fabric Mart has designer ponte knit fabric in stock and on sale, I grab as many yards as I am allowed to.  I absolutely love sewing with ponte knit versus other knits as the stability and structure are perfect for my personal taste (See my previous Fabric Mart post using ponte knit here and here).
