Is there a baby on your Christmas list that you’d like to make something special for? Over the years I’ve created loads of patterns that would make great baby gifts! For instance:
It’s fast and it’s adorable. The construction is very simple and the color combination possibilities are endless. Wouldn’t it be fabulous in a peppermint stripe? Plus, the pattern’s free!
Well, these are even faster than the cardigans! Another great free pattern for a last minute gift.
What’s a Noona? Noona is a nonsense word that Charlie used to use for these toys I designed. (He’s four now – when did he get so old?!) The interesting shapes with no assigned function allow for imaginative play. You can purchase the pattern for all nine pieces for one low price!
Another simple, fast project, this simple roll-brim hat is embellished with crocheted peas and vines. It’s especially adorable for twins, as you can see above! (Free!)
This little duckling isn’t so ugly, and he’s perfect for little hands to grip. Plus, he’s fast, and the pattern is free!
I made this pillow for Max when he was just a baby and he still asks to sleep with it. It’s a great big “I love you” that’s simple to make. It’s a free pattern from CrochetMe’s heyday! (Remember them? Wow, that was a long time ago!)
This afghan is going to take a little more work than a last minute project would, but it’s a showstopper!
This is another old CrochetMe pattern – inspired by the Abominable Snowmonster on Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, these are some ridiculously adorable slippers.
Yet another CrochetMe classic – gee, wasn’t CrochetMe fun? This free design coordinates beautifully with the Starry, Starry Night afghan.
10: Lloopy Llama
One of my favorite designs – isn’t he cute? Babies will love the texture of the loops and there are no buttons or small pieces for them to choke on. At one foot high, he’s the perfect height for cuddling! (I don’t feel like sewing all of those loops on, you say? Neither did I, I used the loop stitch to crochet them in as he was made! The pattern includes an illustrated tutorial on how to do the loop stitch.)
Well, that was fun! I may do a few more of these for different people before Christmas arrives – and don’t forget to check out my patterns for more ideas!
