Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Toys, Softies and Cuddly Gift Knit and Crochet ideas

I’m not really a maker of toys, but I have made them in the past, usually as a gift for a new family member or just for fun, but this year’s Gift A-long has really opened my eyes to some incredible designs and I thought I’d share them with you.

First up

Leisurely Llama

I couldn’t resist this cute Llama, look at that adorable little face.    This one is crocheted and uses simple stitches, it looks like a quick make and you could customize the colours to suit the recipient.

Hartley the Fox

I love this cute little fox and the designer has an amazing range of toy patterns to choose from, it was hard to single out Hartley the Fox, but as I’ve seen so many Fox cushions and mugs this Autumn/Winter season, it had to be him.  All the stitches are explained in a very comprehensive pattern, with plenty of help.

Cinnamon the little Deer

As well as making a very sweet toy, I can see this one being a favourited Christmas Decoration in our house and being pride of place every year.    I love the little antlers and the sweet expression on his/her face.

Giraffe Zoo Kids

My niece, Meghan, loves giraffes and she would go ga-ga over this pattern.  I love the outfits and the felted mane, really pretty details and a comprehensive pattern to take you through every stage of the process.

It’s been a long time since I made dolls clothes but this little ensemble did catch my eye with pretty cable details that any little girl would love.

Family Purr

Cute, cuddly and quick to make, this is a nice easy knit and who wouldn’t want a house full of kitties?  Claire is a member of Team Bundle in the Indie Design Gift Along 2018 and we’re so glad to have her help us.

I love this sweet little pup with his cute outfit, bag, jacket and floppy ears.   This looks like a quick and interesting knit.

December Mice

More crochet and with it being so close to Christmas I had to include them.    The little tree lights and decorations are the perfect finishing touches.

Dashing Dachshund

This is alwas popular in the gift along and I love seeing the colours chosen for both the dog and the colourwork pattern.

Dancing Owl

This one might take a little extra effort with it’s overlay crochet details but look at the wonderful colours and textures?  It’s worth every minute you spend on it.
