What Do You Make a Hairy Biker? (AKA Dad)

It’s my Dad’s birthday soon. The thing is my Dad is no ordinary Dad. My dad is seriously cool. He is 65, lives in a house he built himself from salvaged materials and cruises around on a Triumph Bonneville. Thinking up handmade gift ideas for men is usually hard but I knew exactly what I wanted to make for this dude…

Homemade Gift Hairy Biker

I found an excellent free tutorial and pattern for a half face mask, which I adapted slightly to make the perfect biker’s mask. I used a skull and crossbones cotton for the main fabric but, instead of using a flannel or cotton for the lining, I used a black fleece. That should keep him nice and warm on the bike during the cooler weather. And there you have it, a brilliant gift for a bad-to-the-bone biker dad…

  1. What a great idea for any ‘hairy biker’ in the family or circle of friends – likely everyone has at least one to love, and it’s difficult to find them just the right gift. This is it! You could also embellish the a solid colored fabric by hand or machine with a bit of embroidery of the person’s favorite design or personalize it. Someone I know will be getting one of these for Christmas! Thanks so much for sharing!!! 🙂
