1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Father's Day / Re: HELP!! 3 crafty days till father's day on: December 12, 2009 05:56:19 AM
You guys are AMAZING!! I gathered a bunch of ideas from what you guys said and am making a TV package for my dad. He has a big screen TV and it is his baby! I am making a remote control pouch to hang on his chair's arm (he's always babbling about us losing them so if we put them in there they can always be found!) He also has friends over a lot to watch movies and maybe I could make some kick-ass golf themed beer cozies (all his friends + him seem to love golfing) so I'd probably do two of those. Then I'm trying to decide which TV series to buy him on DVD. Maybe add a few packs of popcorn (maybe I can go to Kernels and get some gourmet stuff! He can have his friends over to share it!) Throw it all together and VOILA! Now I just need to find some time to create!

I have until the 3rd Sunday in June to work on these presents (I'm in Canada) and I believe underneath my new apartment there is a community center and I swear I saw sewing machines down there which, I hope, are free to use! WAHOO! Otherwise, I'll have to try to go home now and then to slowly finish projects on my sewing machine at home but it's RIGHT NEAR HIS TV so I don't want him to see them! Haha!

Thanks again, guys! You always get my minds revved, and the people on this board never ever fail to amaze me with their crafty skills! Smiley


EDIT: My dad loved the controller holder part SO MUCH that he took it in to work today to show all of his friends! I THINK i am going to CRY, that is the cutest! Gotta love dads! LoL!

I made one for my dad last year and for the weight i sewed an inch to two inch wide pocket the at bottom and filled it with rice them sewed it closed and it works wonders.

It was actually the best thing Dad could have received as he hasn't lost his remotes since. My dads recliner has wide arm rests so i measured that and the drop then added the length i wanted. I did one big  pocket and then two smaller pockets on the outside of the big one so he could put the tv guide in the big pocket and remotes in the small one. I used cord and denim as it helps it be non slip too on my dads chair.

Thanks for the ideas in this thread, i was looking for my partners bday present next weekend and might make him a survival type present and a odds and ends tray that the kids can decorate.

What did you use as the weight for the holder to stay on the chair?
