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.

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 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!
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!
