Easy Patterns to Sew Gifts for Kids
I always have big plans to make hand made Christmas gifts for my kids. But when it gets right down to it, I rarely find the time to sew gifts for kids before the holidays. This year, I’m trying to start early – very early – and create some easy to sew gifts while the kids are on vacation with their dad.
I had the perfect motivation when I came across Precious Patterns on Etsy. Precious Patterns is full of affordable easy to follow, simple patterns for handmade kids toys, clothes, bibs, and aprons.
Mary and Sara from Precious Patterns were so sweet to send me the stuffed animal pattern to make these cool giraffe, elephant, and hippo pillows for the kiddos. It’s the first time I’ve sewn from a pattern download, and I was pleasantly surprised. I loved the step by step instructions and clear photos. I decided to make the hippo purple since that will be for J.C. And I used blue polka dot fabric for the inside of Mr. Elephant’s ears since he will be Sawyer’s. I went for white and black buttons for the eyes instead of fabric applique like the pattern suggested. I think they’re full of personality, and I know the kids will love them.
