2. Alphabet Pillows
These alphabet pillows are a really cute addition to a dorm room or apartment as well. Create fun phrases or use the special someone’s name as inspo. Check it out at Lovelyish.
3. Storage Tote
This crocheted storage tote makes a wonderful addition to someone’s home but also as the gift holder itself. Use this to store multiple gifts and goodies. Check out the pattern and instruction by visiting our friends at My Poppet Makes.
4. Tiny Fox
All About Ami. made a tiny little fox that we’ve been swooning over. This is the perfect addition to a baby shower gift or as a special surprise for a new little one in your life. You could even make a set to play with for multiple kiddos.
5. Sunglasses Pouch
Fab Art DIY has a wonderful tutorial (with multiple design options) for a sunglasses pouch. What’s great about going this route is that your lenses won’t get scratched. The fabric is soft enough that it’s both stylish and functional.
6. Mug Rug
How adorable are these “mug rugs?” We’ve never seen them before but we’re in love with their charm and conversation appeal. Instead of boring coasters, why not mix up tea time a little bit? Grab the details at Crochet’N’Create.

8. Dino Hat
We found a pattern for all sorts of animal hats at A More Crafty Life but immediately fell in love with the dino design. You can snag the pattern on Etsy and start working on your own ASAP. This triceratops hat may just be our favorite!
