Father's Day Embroidery

As I'm sure most of you are well aware - Father's Day is this Sunday! I always have a hard time finding something for my dad so instead of my usual "here's a gift card buy something specific I would have no idea you would ever want" deal, I thought I'd make something for him instead! Since my wonderful Pops is an avid fly fisherman and mayfly enthusiast I thought I'd mix the two with some free hand fly embroidery:

Hooray! It turned out pretty well I think and should look nice hanging with his other fishing themed pieces above his fly tying desk. Here's a close up shot so you can soak up all the fake mayfly fish tricking wonders:

Yay! Here's to hoping he likes it! What are you doing for Father's Day this year? Ever successfully make something nice for your dear old dad?

  1. Your embroidery looks great, Kate! In Australia Father's Day isn't until September so I have a while to plan something for my dad ^_^ I think my dad's favourite handmade present was when I made him a fruit and nut cake that was the same shape, weight, and density as a brick. I'm not sure if he ate it or used it as a part of a wall, but hey, it's the thought that counts, right? ~_^
