This Plaid About You beanie featuring a sweet plaid heart is a great handmade gift idea for anyone you love, though, I think it might be better suited to the ladies. (I don’t know what it is with dudes having a problem with wearing hearts.) I love it though. Super adorable.
I guess a more manly option would be this cool Oso Plaid Beanie in the same Etsy shop: Evelyn & Peter. The plaid bear pattern is so cool. And can you believe these are crocheted? They look so good. I love this style of plaid! And the designs in the midst of them? Genius!
While we’re still talking about this designer, we can’t forget one of my favorite designs: The Flannel Forrest Beanie. I’m still just blown away that these hats are crocheted! Have you made one of these gorgeous hats? If you do, let me know! They’re on my list to make. Again with the lovely fur pompoms… so super trendy and adorable. I had to buy myself a bunch last winter. You can get them here if you’re looking for some. Make sure you get the remove-able ones (mine have snaps!) so you can wash your toque (that’s Canadian for winter hat).
You certainly can’t go wrong with checking out the plaid patterns by Whistle & Ivy. They’re super affordable and super adorable, all at the same time! I made this pattern last year and I must say, her instructions are great and the hat looks fantastic, just like these pictures!
And, while I think plaid can definitely be worn year round, but especially in the fall and winter. there’s something about buffalo plaid that’s just a little bit Christmas-y. So, you have plenty of time to crochet up a couple of these adorable Chalet Rustic Pillow Covers to throw on your couch for the upcoming winter season! The deer pattern is just impeccable! What a fun and festive idea!

My kids aren’t as little anymore, but when they were, I loved handmade play food. I made a few little things for them. I mostly made up my patterns, but some amazing pattern designers have done the hard work for you, and they are worth every cent for easy-to-read, easy-to-make play food amigurumi.

First, you may as well start your kids’ meal off with this darling cup of tea with a tea bag. So adorable! Perfect for toddlers who aren’t quite ready for their own tea set yet. This link is for a pre-made toy, so your kid will have something to play with while you work on the next play food projects…
Having trouble introducing new foods to your kids? Why not try crocheting them play versions first? Then they have the opportunity to become familiar with the shapes and colours. Get ready to introduce your kids to these adorable sushi crochet patterns.
Finish off your child’s play meal with a lovely crocheted ice cream cone! These adorable little patterns would make great handmade party favours from an ice cream social birthday party. So sweet. I love mint chocolate chip!
Have a great handmade meal (with no calories) and food you don’t mind your kids playing with! Perfect handmade gift to accompany a toy kitchen, something almost every kid loves to play with!
This is a great idea to make your own growth chart for the kids! I love that you can take this with you when you move! I made one like this for my kids & it’s great! Everyone loves to measure themselves!
