Okay, we are down to the wire. There are only a few weeks until Christmas, and a million other religious and non-religious holidays in the winter months. It’s gift-giving season!
However, it also cookie-baking season, party-going season, college exam season, ballet performance season…
Let’s face it, we are all pressed for time and there is good chance you haven’t started a few of your handmade gifts yet.
Kids and babies are hard to make crochet gifts for, especially on a time crunch. These patterns will take you one day or less to complete. They are from some of your favorite designers, in no particular order.
Travel Tic-Tac-Toe Board from Crochet by Darleen Hopkins (paid)
This little game board folds up, holds all the pieces, and can be taken along (even washed!). What a perfect road trip accessory or gift for visiting relatives!
Cutie Cake Beanie from Natali’s Crochet (paid)
Have a cool cake yarn that is perfect for your kiddo but don’t know what to make? This pattern is designed for Caron Cupcakes! Adorable!
Puppy Lovey from Loops and Love Crochet (free)
Babies and toddlers love little blankets with a cute stuffed toy attached.
Mustache Cowl from Sweet Potato 3
TEEHEE! Mustaches are all the rage, and what is more fun (and funny) than this adorable cowl?! My sons would really love this! I could even see this flying well for middle school kids. Lol!
Itty Bitty Crochet Kitty from Thoresby Cottage (free)
It’s so CUTE!!!! Who doesn’t love a tiny cat that you can put in your pocket? I know my kids would love this in a variety of yarns and colors to make a whole family of kitties!
Dragon Scale Clutch Purse from Hooked by Kati (free)
As a pencil pouch or a cute purse, this little purse looks GREAT in self-striping yarn in bright colors. Girls of all ages love this! I actually have a black and white one I carry on date nights. 🙂
Of course, any amigurumi are fun gifts for kids. There are TONS of other amigurumi patterns here on the blog. Here is a smattering of my other stuffed animal patterns, perfect for kiddos.
Vincent the Dragon (for big kids and kids at heart)
Aren’t these great?!
