Homemade for the Holidays: Day 7 {Gifts for Dad}

Dads. In my opinion, the hardest people to buy gifts for. Well, maybe not buy. That's easy. But homemade? Eeek! I asked my cute hubby what kind of thing he would even like that would be homemade. He really liked the Father's Day tie (Thanks, Lisa!) I made with footprints of both kids when they were babies. But does he ever wear it any day but Father's Day? Nope. 

So, when I saw this ADORABLE idea on Pinterest a few nights ago, I was so excited! (Really, I am in LOVE with this idea!)

Jessica @ The Blue Basket came up with this homemade gift that is perfect for a Dad who wants a little relaxation. :) The kids drive their Hot Wheels all over the back of the shirt and Dad gets a nice little back massage! See, I told you this idea is brilliant! 

Jessica's tutorial includes a printable template, so you don't even need to be an artist! But you could definitely personalize the places/names on your shirt to include your family's favorite places. I am SO making this for my husband and I don't even have a little boy that's into cars yet! My little girl will love it just as much!

Seriously, you have to go right now to this blog. Cute, cute ideas and many of them are for kids. 

And now, you know the drill! Want to win some supplies to make a shirt of your own? 

One winner will receive a pack of Fabric Markers and a few new Hot Wheels for your kids to drive around! (You just purchase your shirt in the correct size.)
