Are you stuck on Christmas gift ideas for your little ones? Or maybe your friends’ little ones? If you like giving unique gifts that are made with extra love and care, be sure to check out our shop and see the variety of PDF patterns that we have in store. We don’t just sell patterns for making clothes and accessories, we sell patterns to make your own TOYS. That’s right… this Christmas you can be one of Santa’s elves and make your own Christmas toys!
Handmade gifts are super thoughtful, and not easily forgotten by the recipient. This year for Christmas, we challenge you to make toys for the children in your life. One of the major benefits in making your own toys, is that you know EXACTLY what they are made from: this is particularly important for the young ones with allergies and sensitive skin.
The Babies First Toy Set pattern comes with six different patterns and is suitable for adventurous beginners. With this set, you can create a balloon ball, a mini ball, and 4 different types of soft animals. Balloon balls are great for indoor play with your little one. You can think of a balloon ball like a cover for a regular party balloon that you can play with safely indoors. When the balloon deflates it will be stored safely inside the ball, away from your little ones hands and mouths for ultimate safety. The mini ball and soft animals are sized with your little one in mind, and are super cute. The patter contains a seahorse, dinosaur, elephant and giraffe for you to create. We recommend using different textured fabrics to make play time even more fun with your children.
The next set of toy patterns we have in our shop is suited to advanced sewers, it’s the Alice’s Tea Set pattern. This set comes with three different patterns for a teapot, a teacup and a saucer: everything you need for a tea party. This pattern is my absolute favourite toy pattern: it’s so adorable!
This next item is one that the parents will love: the Play Away pattern. The Play Away is an adorable little toy storage bag that folds out into a play mat that your little one can take with them when you go out to appointments and need to keep them occupied. Suitable for beginner sewers and designed for little laps and little toys.
We hope this post has inspired you to get creative and consider making your own toys this year like one of Santa’s elves. You could even get your children involved to help you make these items as a way to spend quality time together as a family.
If you make any of the above toy designs, please tag us in a photo of them so we can share your creation with the rest of the Flosstyle Family!
