Pinaholics Anonymous Meeting # 6

Hello my lovely readers,  I am really sorry about skipping the last two meetings! With the Mother's Day celebration, vegetable planting, and garage organizing, I barely had time to cook. But I am going to post two more PA meetings in the next week to catch up.

If you would like to see certain ideas, tutorials, tips, or tricks in the future PA meetings, shoot me an E-mail 

Or go to my Contact Me Page

If this is your first time here, let me briefly explain to you what this is all about.  This is a new series I am starting to share what I have pinned to my boards on Pinterest that I find interesting and inspiring.  I will feature sewing related pins that may be tutorials, tips, tricks, or ideas (but I am partial to tutorials!)

So without further ado, let's begin our Sixth PA Meeting!

Today's Theme: Father's Day

Liz over at Sew 4 Home has a tutorial on how to make a sweatshirt blanket for men who don't want to be covered up in girlie blankets or snuggies lol

3rd item on our meeting agenda:  Digital Device Sleeve

Again, Liz over at Sew 4 Home has this amazing tutorial on how to make this AWESOME sleeve for those dads that are tech savvy!

4th item on our meeting agenda: Dad-inspired Pillows

Chrissann over at Ducklings In A Row has great ideas on turning some old clothing in cute pillow covers!

Amy over at Positively Splendid has a tutorial on making golf club covers for those golfer dads!

8th item on our meeting agenda: Wallet

Allisa over at Quiltish by Allisa Jacobs made a really cool wallet, and it's so simple, you need to head over and check it out.

9th item on our meeting agenda:  Drink Cozy

For those dads that enjoy a cold one every now and then, this is PERFECT.  It's made from old jeans (get a pair from your dad), and it has pockets to hold a few little things like a straw. Head over to Fiskars, Patti Milanzzo has a great, clear tutorial to make this.  Simply amazing!  I am making a couple as well!

10th item on our meeting agenda: Sofa Caddy

This is absolutely perfect for those dads that do not have just one universal remote! Like my dad, he has one for the TV, one for the DVD, one for the speakers, one for computer (yea, he has a media PC hooked up to his big screen!), so this would be awesome to help him keep his remotes all in one place.  Now, for dads, I suggest using DENIM.  Use the same pair you make the Drink Cozy from! :)
