Amigurumi for Christmas

I just love amigurumi! According to Wikipedia: Amigurumi is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small, stuffed yarn creatures. The word is a portmanteau of the Japanese words ami, meaning “crocheted or knitted”, and nuigurumi, meaning “stuffed doll”. And this time of year is the perfect time to make some. Amigurumi is perfect for Christmas, as gifts for children, as decorations for your home or tree, as gifts for co-workers. They work up pretty quickly and are really fun to make; you can also use up some of your odds and ends of yarn since they’re usually pretty small and you can customise their colours to whatever you have on hand! So many people are delighted by amigurumi, it makes the perfect whimsical addition to this festive season! Check out these adorable stuffed crocheted creatures and pick out a pattern to start working on today!

How about this festive Little Christmas Deer Crochet Pattern? One pattern gives you all the instructions you need to make these little amigurumi deer dolls, with plenty of high-quality photos to walk you through it. Depending on the size of yarn you use, these little guys could be toys for kids or decorations for your tree!

How adorable are these gingerbread people? Again, here’s another pattern with instructions to make both tops: a Gingerbread Man and Girl Couple Amigurumi Pattern. How much fun would a set of these be for a newlywed couple for their first Christmas? They’re so sweet with all their decoration details!

I’m a sucker for gnomes! I love their big furry beards and festive hats on their squat, rotund bodies. Herbert the Christmas Gnome Amigurumi Pattern would make a great addition to my mantle (which is frankly looking a little sad this year… see my Instagram post about it). But I think this guy would spruce it right up!

Who can resist an adorable cartoon-ish Mr Santa Crochet Pattern? His cloud-like beard and little button eyes just draw you in. My kids were never really enamoured with Santa, and we never really forced them to sit on Santa’s knee because they always looked terrified of him. Besides, who wants to stand in line with kids for 20 minutes to traumatize your kids for an awful over-priced picture? My kids were slightly intrigued by the idea of the right jolly old elf, so I slightly regret not snapping a photo of them looking onto the spectacle of Santa visiting from a distance. I’m sure they would have been much more interested in a stuffed version of Santa like this cute little amigurumi doll.

Mr Pinny Crochet Amigurumi Pattern is a super cute, sweater-clad penguin doll ready to grace your Christmas tree with his chipper little face! It’s time for all the cold-weather creatures to come out and adorn our homes with their cuteness! I don’t know, though; do you think this little guy could use a hat? Or a scarf? He looks a little chilly. I think I’d make him a hat, too.

Of course, you don’t need to make Christmas themed Amigurumi to give out as a gift! You can make a stuffed toy that can be enjoyed year-round, like this Milo the Hipster Cat Amigurumi Pattern. What kid doesn’t want a stuffed cat in a hoodie? My kids love this kind of stuff and I’m sure yours would too!

Or if you have a princess-lover on your hands, this Princess Amigurumi Crochet Pattern Bundle would give you all the instructions you need to make a whole collection of princesses! These dolls are so adorable; how much more special will one of these dolls be to the recipient when they know it was made by your loving hands? That’s the beauty of handmade; so much pride involved in making and so much love felt in giving and receiving!

If you’re new to amigurumi, you could try something a little simpler, like this Crochet Star Amigurumi Pattern. Festive for the holiday season, but suitable to be displayed year-round. Make one with a thick, bulky yarn and you’d have a super fun pillow for a teen. It gets harder and harder to come up with good fun handmade gift ideas for teens as they get older. This would be a suitable option for an older kid and would make a fun addition to their bed.

Do you want a hippopotamus for Christmas? You can make one with this Crochet Hippo Amigurumi Pattern! This cuddly hippo would double as a super fun and functional pillow. Made with a big enough yarn, this friendly character would crochet up quickly and make a really snuggly stuffed friend for any kid. All this hippo needs is a cute little bow and to be displayed under the tree!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this little introduction to various amigurumi characters you could make this Christmas. You’ve still got some time, so go pick up a pattern and get to work! What better things do you have to do as the weather turns colder than sit cosied up at home with your crocheting? Grab a pattern or pin it for later!

Farmhouse Crochet Patterns

One of the things I love about the farmhouse style is its rustic simplicity. It allows for imperfections and handmade touches. The style is warm and inviting because it embraces natural and comforting textures and fibres. There are so many trendy and modern ways to incorporate this homey DIY style into your home, especially at Christmas! If you’ve been wondering how you could bring some of this homey farmhouse vibe into your house, I’ve gathered a few crochet patterns here for you to try and bring some farmhouse inspiration into your decor!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

This simple and minimalist Bunting Banner Crochet Pattern is a great introduction to some handmade touches in your decor. With sweet tassels on the ends, this little banner can be made as long as you please. You can bring it out for special occasions or decorate a bedroom with it. You could make it in different colours to celebrate birthdays or just bring a spark of whimsy to a playroom. It’s a super simple pattern, great for beginners to learn to crochet!

If you just can’t see how that farmhouse style fitting in with your current decor, Christmas is definitely the time you can experiment with this homey style. You could try out this Snow Flurry Tree Skirt Crochet Pattern. It’s made with a super bulky (size 6) yarn and it’s actually a really easy pattern because it’s not a traditional circular shape, it’s a rectangle, like a scarf for your tree! Warm up your home with this cosy Christmas tree skirt this year.

Another great way to incorporate farmhouse style into your Christmas is with some little decorations. This Rustic Christmas Tree Crochet Pattern can be made in all different sizes and using different yarns to create a rustic Christmas display. Perfect for the mantle or the office, or a little vignette on an end table. These would make super cute gifts for coworkers, too!

And what’s more nostalgic than this classic red truck with a Christmas tree? Add a throw pillow to your Christmas decor by making up one of these Farmhouse Christmas Truck Pillow Crochet Patterns. Such a simple and fun idea to add a bit of old-timey charm to your Christmas decor.

Or, if you prefer the view from the backside, this Farmhouse Christmas Tree Truck Pillow Cover Crochet Pattern is another sweet option for crochet throw pillows with that classic vintage truck. So adorable. Such fun Christmas decor.

I love wreaths. (Check out my Pinterest board full of wreaths!) and I love a wreath that can be used for more than just Christmas. This Farmhouse Jute Wreath Crochet Pattern would be perfect for spring or summer, but you could also pull it out for Christmas just as easily. Or make a different one decorated with more Christmas-y or wintery greenery. This is such a classic look and so so pretty. I think I need to make a couple of these this year.

Christmas or not, you can add some simple farmhouse charm to your front door by making this Buffalo Plaid Rug Crochet Pattern to welcome guests into your home. I love how the three colours come together to form the plaid pattern. Definitely fun to watch these kinds of projects come together!

Yet another Farmhouse Welcome Mat Crochet Pattern for you from Cozy Nook Designs. With a big hand-lettering style Welcome for your guests! This appears to be made with jute, which would make such a rustic and durable front entry mat. Very fun.

This Farmhouse Style Waffle Pillow Cover Crochet Pattern is timeless and not overly “farmhouse”y so it would fit in easily with any decor style. With an interesting texture to crochet and an interesting texture to look at and touch, this pillow cover would add cosy handmade charm to any room.

To finish off your farmhouse room, or just offer a handmade touch to a housewarming gift or office-mate, this Plant Sweater Planter Pot Cover Crochet Pattern is a simple and quick pattern to make for a handmade gift.

So, have I convinced you to add some rustic farmhouse details into your home? For Christmas or for keeps? It’s such a cosy and timeless style and really adds a sense of homeyness while falling neatly in with neutral colour schemes.

Crochet for Christmas

Are you looking for some ideas for some handmade gifts you can make for Christmas this year? If you can crochet, there are a myriad of ideas out there, absolutely worth your time to make! It’s so touching to receive a handmade gift, one that you know a lot of thought and time has gone into. It’s such a neat experience for me to be able to make handmade gifts for my family and friends… I think about them as I make their gift, so there’s the extra special gift of having spent hours and hours (and hours and hours) thinking about the recipient that is built into this gift of love!

So, if you want to give that kind of love this gift-giving season, you’ve still got plenty of time to crochet something amazing. And I have got some great crochet patterns for you!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

A crocheted hat is a practical and lovely gift. This Brisk Beanie Crochet Pattern is trendy with its multiple textures and crochets up quickly with a 5 mm crochet hook. This is the kind of gift you can whip up in a couple of hours!

Isn’t this sweet vertical-striped Borealis Hat Crochet Pattern adorable? I love the rainbow yarn used in this example to make a super fun and brightly coloured hat for a child, or anyone who loves a pop of colour!

If you’re looking for something a little more Christmassy to make as a gift this season, check out this Vintage Crochet Granny Square Tree Skirt Pattern. Because it’s a vintage pattern, you can get the .pdf for just a couple bucks! And you can choose the colours that suit your recipients (or your own… ;)) to make a perfectly customized tree skirt!

If granny squares aren’t your thing, this Crocheted Nativity Tree Skirt Pattern might be more your speed. I love the simplicity of the two colours and the multiple panels with different scenes.

I also love this Rustic Wonderland Christmas Tree Skirt Crochet Pattern with a chunky yarn and fantastic wooden buttons, this would be perfect for a farmhouse Christmas style.

Who doesn’t love snowmen? These Little Snowman Crocheted Christmas Ornaments would make perfect co-worker gifts! I love the embroidered snowflakes on the hat and scarf and the little stick arms on the other snowman are classic!

Perhaps you’d rather make a Snowman Christmas Ball Ornament; this little crochet pattern would also make a great gift for co-workers. I think they would also go well at craft sales if you’re the kind of person who makes for craft sales. Simple and quick, these would probably come together in a couple of hours, too.

For a more traditional Christmas Ball Ornament Crochet Pattern, there’s this super colourful option, which I love and also think would come together quickly! How fun would a bunch of these be on a colourful tree? oOooOhh or they’d be even more perfect at a daycare or pre-school!? When I was a kid, we had glass ball ornaments, which could (and did!) break. Since I’ve had kids, I’ve only bought plastic ornaments so I wouldn’t have to worry about breakage; I could let my kids decorate and touch the tree without being a ball of worry. These would totally work to let kids decorate with!

While we’re in this colourful mood, you should also check out these cute Colourful Little Christmas Trees. I love the fun stripes and the beads that add so much character to these sweet little decorations. They would go along perfectly with those snowmen ball ornaments at your craft sale!

I’m also a big fan of these stockings! You can make this Mini Stocking Crochet Pattern into a bunting like these, with multiple colours, stripes, and follow the rainbow! What a fun decoration! OoooOooh… you could make 25 of them for an advent calendar bunting!

Here’s another great pattern to turn into a great garland: this Christmas Lights Crochet Pattern can be made into individual little ornaments or strung together for an adorable bunting! How fun are these?!

So, you see? With all these quick projects you could make in time for the holidays, you can really give a handmade gift to just about anyone you care about! Time to pull out that yarn and the hook, pick up a pattern and get to work! Or Pin it for later!

So many cute Christmas crochet patterns to make! Perfect handmade gift ideas! I can't wait to get started on these! Look at the little stockings! So adorable! #christmascrochet #handmadechristmas #crochetpatterns #crochetchristmas #craftevangelist

Handmade Holiday Gifts

It’s go time! November always takes me by surprise. Before November, if I had started thinking about Christmas gifts or making anything, I was so super early and ahead of the game. Once November hits, I always feel behind. It’s stupid, really. But the maker mom in me wants to handmake something for everyone. Besides making everyone some coasters or ornaments, it just isn’t practical to start in November. But just because you can’t make something elaborate for everyone, doesn’t mean that you can’t make something elaborate for someone special. So, I’ve rounded up a group of patterns to make for some beautiful handmade holiday gifts! Check them out and get to work!

Or… here’s the other trick, if you’re starting in November, you can still get a handmade gift made for you! There are so many makers who make a gorgeous handmade gift for you, wrap it beautifully and ship it to you in time for Christmas. Just take note of any special order-by dates, so you can be sure to get what you want in time for your gift-giving!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

Stuffed toys are always a great gift idea for children! Even adults find them hard to resist! This sweet Friendy Wendy the Lamb crochet pattern would make a lovely handmade gift!

The beauty of holiday time is that you can decorate with stuffed toys! When else can you display stuffed toys if you’re not a kid (or my mother-in-law in her spare bedrooms)? You can make this Kevin the Snowman Amigurumi Pattern and put him on your mantle or give him as a loveable Christmas toy!

These Christmas Minis set of crochet toy patterns are another opportunity to make and display some cute little amigurumi toys for the holidays! If you attached some string to these little guys, they would make great hanging ornaments or gift toppers!

My little Oak hubby crochet toy pattern is a sweet little amigurumi toy pattern to make as a lovey for a child. What an adorable earthy little doll! He looks perfectly suited for the woodsy outdoors.

Maybe the hype of Frozne is over now, but I know there are still some die-hard fans out there and kids still love Olaf. If you have a fan in your life, you could make one of these detachable Olaf Snowman crochet patterns. How much fun is it to have an interactive handmade toy to play with!?

Play food is such a fun handmade gift! This amigurumi cup of hot cocoa is a cute and quick-to-make little pattern that will delight any recipient! How much fun would it be to put out an amigurumi cup of cocoa and cookies for Santa this year?

For an older child or teen, this Crochet Pillow Lips Amigurumi Pattern would make a great throw pillow for their bed. Made with fuzzy blanket yarn, this little pillow would be so cozy to snuggle up to!

For the knitters in the group looking to make a garment, the Lodgepole Cowl knitting pattern is a lovely colour-work knitting pattern, made with just two colours. Cowls make great handmade gifts because you don’t need to have someone’s exact measurements to make a garment that is going to fit and they knit up rather quickly, so you can make lots for all your friends!

If you’ve got a little more time to craft this year, you could make up one of these Winter Star Crochet Blanket Patterns and have a fabulous afghan to enjoy or delight someone with a gorgeous handmade gift!

Or if winter stars are not your thing, check out this Midnight Diamond Blanket Crochet Pattern. I love the pattern on this; it almost looks like a Scandinavian rug! I wonder if I could make it with t-shirt yarn and make a fun rug?

So, if you’re not a maker, or you are and you just don’t have time to make one of these lovely patterns, there are still makers out there who have time to make a great gift for you in time for the holidays. Like this incredible Crocheted fairy house teapot cosy from Pleasant Things Store. Remember last year when I made my teapot cosy for the silent auction? Well, this maker makes them, too! And she is far more prolific than I am! I tell ya, for all the work that goes into a piece of art like this, her prices are a good deal!

Or maybe you would prefer to give a Luxury Sparrow Beanie made by my friend Jasmine at KichekoDesigns with hand-dyed superwash Merino wool. I love the giant faux fur poms; they’re still so trendy and fun. This gorgeous hat would be loved by any recipient! If you want to make your own, you can grab the pattern from HaileyBailey.

Do you have a new baby coming into the family soon? Jasmine would also make you a Little Ombre Blanket made with naturally soft merino. Perfect baby stroller blanket! It’s such a delight to receive a handmade gift, so you can be sure to let your recipient know that this blanket was handmade in Canada by a delightful woman in Revelstoke, BC!

Pre-order your Knit Hat with Faux Fur Pom from a fellow Edmonton maker, GingerfullyCozy. This mustard yellow is such a great colour this fall; I’m so glad it’s still on-trend: it’s one of my favourite colours!

For a chunky option, GingerfullyCozy also has this cute textured knit hat with faux fur pom. The grey is so classic and goes with everything!

So, whether you’re kicking your making into high-gear this month or organizing yourself for the gift-giving season ahead, you’ve got a bunch of great options to have a lovely handmade holiday! I’m always so pleased to push handmade on people; it’s a far superior option in so many ways. If you make it yourself, you can save some money by just buying some yarn that’s within your budget and add so much value with some of your time. It makes such a special gift for the recipient because of your input of time and thought. If you buy from an independent maker, you’re usually getting a super great deal and you’re directly supporting creative handiwork! We shouldn’t lose these skills! We need to value them and we need to value the time that makers spend making and coming up with beautiful patterns for the rest of us! So, what are you waiting for? Go get one of these patterns or put your order in for a handmade item by a talented maker! Pin this for later so you can find it next time you’re looking for it.

Quick Handmade Gifts

Super fast handmade gifts to knit and crochet! Pick up a pattern and get to work today and you can have beautiful handmade gifts to give!

Did you leave making your handmade gifts until December? I may or may not have done this, intending every year to start earlier, but then getting easily distracted and finding the fall having slipped by without my having made a bunch of handmade gifts. My family may be getting used to receiving handmade “gift cards” of promises of handmade goods for the future. I usually have much more time between Christmas and New Years to knit and crochet, so I sit and knit/crochet and drink coffee with Baileys. But, if you have some time in the next couple weeks, these little projects will work up quickly and you can still give your loved ones thoughtful handmade gifts in time for Christmas.

I love toques and an easy pattern in a chunky yarn like this Gamora Beanie will knit up quickly and make a lovely gift for any woman.

You could pick up a Simple Garter Stitch Scarf Knitting Kit and either give that as a gift itself, with the promise of teaching someone else to knit or make it up yourself for a quick project that you can work on while you binge the Holiday Nailed It episodes on Netflix.

Need to sharpen your knitting skills to take on one of these projects? Check out some online knitting classes from Blueprint!

Here’s another chunky toque pattern, the Messy Bun Beanie Pattern will work up quickly and be the perfect thoughtful gift for that woman who is always wearing her hair up in a messy bun.

This Bulky Rope Scarf Hand Crochet Pattern is an extra quick crochet project that you can make with your fingers! How cool is that? This would make another great pattern to give with a skein of yarn to a new crocheter, too!

Headbands work up really quickly. You could have a bunch of these Enora Earwarmer Crochet Pattern worked up in a matter of an evening or two!

I’m also a big fan of this Five Strand Braided Crochet Headband. Headbands are great quick projects for last minute gift giving.

Need to improve your crochet skills for one of these projects? Check out Blueprint’s online crochet classes and learn at your own pace!

If you have even less time or a handmade garment isn’t quite appropriate, this Christmas Tree Garland Crochet Pattern is a perfect handmade gift idea for just about anyone. Think co-workers! If you have more time, you can make up whole garlands! Less time: individual tree ornaments!

Here’s another adorable ornament pattern: the Mittens Ornament Crochet Pattern. Sweet little amigurumi mittens to adorn the tree of your loved ones!

Or these classic Crochet Christmas Star Ornament Pattern also work up super quickly. I made a bunch of these for my coworkers last Christmas and people loved them! 

You still have time to give handmade gifts this Christmas! Pick up one of these patterns and pick up your crochet hook or knitting needles and get to work! There’s still time and what an enjoyable way to spend an evening by the fire! Share these ideas on Pinterest!

Marvellous Mittens

I posted a round up of fingerless gloves I was choosing between a few weeks ago when I was complaining of my freezing fingers in my office.  I did make a pair, but now we’re onto full-on winter in these parts, so you need mittens whenever you venture out of the house. Which pair should I make next? There are so many lovely knit and crochet patterns to make. Which do you like? (They also make great gifts, especially chunky crocheted mittens: they work up super quickly!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

I’m a big fan of these chunky knit Cabled Hat and Mittens Pattern. Bonus hat pattern! Right? So classic and perfect for showing off a lovely yarn!

The Helix Mittens knitting pattern is another great knit mitten pattern. Look at the fun swirl in these lovely mittens! 

The Jesse Mittens crochet pattern has a nice texture with a contrasting cuff, they set off any winter outfit. This same designer also has a hat pattern that matches!

Cabled Mittens Crochet Pattern by All About Ami (fellow Edmontonian!) are a cute mitten with a cable knit pattern for crocheters. I think the cable-knit look is what a lot of crocheters are kind of envious of knitters for. You can learn both! I learned to knit after I learned to crochet, so I knit continental and it feels so much more natural than the English method to me.

Frosty Forest Mittens crochet pattern are another chunky crochet mitten pattern that look toasty warm and would crochet up quickly for a last minute gift!

One day I want to make some of these ultra warm Alpaca Thrum Mittens! All that roving inside makes them super warm and cozy and the little puffy heart stitch on the outside is adorable!

I’m a huge fan of simple knitting patterns, so I love these Frisco Mittens, which are another pattern that would highlight and show off a beautiful yarn! Sometimes you save that lovely stuff for just the right project. These cozy mittens look just right for that.

Keep your fingers busy and then warm with one of these lovely pair of mittens! Pick up a pattern today! Or pin it for tomorrow!

Gifts for Knitters

If you have a knitter on your list and don’t know what to get them, well let me steer you in the right direction! When you know someone does a craft, sometimes it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the options of things that you don’t know what to do with. Well, I am here to guide you!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

A yarn bowl is always a great idea for a lovely gift for a knitter. Many knitters don’t own one yet (even me)! I usually wind a center-pull ball, but a yarn bowl is still a lovely knitting accessory and isn’t this wooden one beautiful?

Here’s another super adorable yarn bowl. Don’t you love this ceramic sheep yarn bowl? So cute. 

Unique buttons also make a lovely gift. It’s always great to have an assortment on hand for finishing up a project without having to go shopping for buttons. And sometimes buttons can inspire a project all by themselves. These gorgeous carved wooden bird buttons are adorable and so unique! I love handmade!

These boho painted wooden buttons are another great option, if your recipient are a trendy button option. How fun would it be to give such a simple, but special and thoughtful gift from an independent artisan?

Stitch markers also make a lovely little gift, a perfect little stocking stuffer. Check out these adorable sheep stitch markers… so cute.

Alternatively, if your recipient is more of the minimalist type, these delicate raindrop shaped brass stitch markers are another stitch marker gift.

I have never knit with a knitting ring before, but they look so interesting. If your knitting loved one does a lot of colour-work, then they might like to figure out how to knit or crochet with one of these knitting rings

Almost any knitter would be delighted with some luxurious, wonderfully-coloured yarn. Check out this gorgeous autumn colourway wool yarn from Fashion Touch Supplies.

Or a full kit full of yarn enough for a complete shawl in a teal to browns. So many knitters will have spent the pre-Christmas season making gifts for others. What a delight it would be to be given supplies to make a lovely treat for themselves!

I hope you find these suggestions helpful for shopping for the knitter in your life! Pin it on Pinterest to share with your friends or find it later!

Christmas for Baby

Are you crafting for a baby this Christmas? Baby items are great beginner projects because they’re so small. (And adorable!) You can start to get the feel for how a knit sweater is constructed or practice a new crochet stitch with a baby pattern and oh-my-goodness if some of the patterns are THE.CUTEST.EVER. 

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

First of all, booties. How much do you love this crochet pattern for Converse-inspired baby booties? So.much.cuteness. It even comes with a printable box template that you can print and give as a gift! I love that.

If you were thinking of more Christmas-themed booties, then you should make these adorable crocheted reindeer booties! How sweet would these be on the baby in front of the Christmas tree? Perfect!

Of course a handmade stuffed animal is another adorable baby gift idea. How sweet is this little reindeer crochet pattern? I love her little pull along sled! So cute! It would make great holiday decor or a lovely baby gift (just make sure you use some safety eyes and not buttons).

Or maybe one of these adorable Christmas-themed amigurumi dolls is more your style? This bundle pack of North Pole patterns is a great deal! I think the elf is my favourite!

If it’s baby’s first Christmas, baby needs a stocking, right? Baby should start life right with a handmade crocheted stocking from you! I’m quite fond of this crocheted stocking pattern with this tree design. Simple and unique! It looks like it’d be easy enough to make one for the whole family!

Or maybe since a baby is small, baby just needs a teensy-weensy, itty-bitty super cute little stocking. Actually, these are for decoration, but wouldn’t they also make a fantastic advent calendar? You could totally make your own and it would be fantastic!

Less Christmas-themed, but still a perfect Christmas gift for a new baby is this Eve Romper All in One Knitting Pattern. Perfect for the beginner, this garter-stitched romper would make an adorable outfit for baby photos. I love the rustic wooden buttons!

If you’re still thinking about good photo props, this sweet elf stocking cap crochet pattern is a great idea. So cute.

I also love these patterns for these crocheted stuffed letters. What a beautiful way to introduce a child to the love of reading! You could make just a couple of their initials, a name, or make the whole set as a fun learning toy.

Of course, we don’t always have time to make handmade gifts, which is another reason that Etsy is so great. I didn’t find a pattern for this super adorable little lamb hat, but that means you can just get BabaMoon to make one for you! Wouldn’t it be so perfect for a Christmas nativity play at church? Oh-my-goodness I could just eat this little lamb up!

I hope you now have some great ideas for Christmas baby gifts to make. Pin it for later or to share with your friends!

So I’ve collected some projects that are all put together with everything that you need in order to make these fantastic crafts!

I am in complete awe of this fantastic flying saucer with alien & cow kit from lalylaland. And get this: it’s not just a cute decorative item, it’s a pull-toy with the theme song from X-Files!

Or once you get established as a crocheter, this slightly bigger Crochet Sheep kit is another adorable craft kit that includes the yarn, fiberfill, safety eyes and embroidery floss that you need to make this adorable stuffed lamb toy.
