Have you made any quick Christmas gifts this year? Not only do these cute patterns make great quick Christmas gifts, but they also look great around your house. Are you ready for some fun ideas?
1. Sheep Balls by Dona Carruth. Do you give Christmas ornaments each year? Wouldn’t this be a fun one? It would also look great year-round in your sewing/crafting area.
2. Mitten Garland Advent Calendar by Kathy Lewinski. The whole string of mittens is so impressive. But even if you don’t want to knit all 24, you can certainly pick and choose. Hang pairs on your mantel. Knit them up as giftcard “wrapping”, or do a 12-days-of-Christmas this year, and make the other 12 next year!
3. Holiday Mice by Barbara Prime. Don’t they look like they are on their way to grandma’s house? All they need is a little sack of presents.
4. Wee Woodland Wuzzies by Barbara Prime. If your Holiday Mice need some friends, you’ll love this pattern with more wee creatures!
5. Snowball Buddies by Susan Claudino. I’d have a hard time doing just one of these, and I love that they are all wrapped up in their winter handknits. Cute for hanging, or sew a big button on the very bottom and they’ll stand up along shelves or mantels.
6. Never Not Gnoming by Sarah Schira. Gnomes – how can you not love them? I’d have fun picking out their hat and body colors, and I like the handknit beards with this pattern.
7. Tree Coasters by Amy Marie. Everyone uses coasters, but not everyone has holiday coasters. These would be a fun gift along with a new mug and a hot chocolate mix!
8. Tiny Window Cat by Sara Kellner. I know you have friends and family cat-lovers, right? Don’t they need one of these? (I know I need one of these. Or several.)
9. Christmas Trees Fairy Forest by Tatyana Korobkova. This comes with 6 different tree patterns, so make a bunch and line them up on your mantel or shelf! (Or you can give them away. But I think I’d make them and not want to give them to anyone.)
10. The Little House by Fifty Four Ten Studio. Can’t you just see several houses sprinkled in among the Fairy Forest Christmas Trees (see above) on a shelf or above your fireplace?
Giving handknit gifts (or using them around your house) is always special and fun. Bonus – our Christmas/Winter kits come with mini skeins of pretty holiday colors, perfect for many of these quick Christmas gifts patterns. If you make some of these ideas, tag us on Instagram (@theloopyewe) so we can see what you did!
