this week’s awesome finds!

Fea­tur­ing quick gifts to make! :D

This cute pret­zel pil­low! From Stu­dio DIY.

Super fun pom­pom key rings, free how-to from Wool and the Gang! (email sign up required to down­load instructions)

Also from Wool and the Gang, an adorable pen­guin embroi­dery pat­tern to cus­tomize your Christ­mas sweater! One can prob­a­bly use it as a chart to knit the sweater itself. Might even work for crochet!

These mit­tens from Purl Soho are just beau­ti­ful. They’re knit­ted flat too (for the most part), so they’re on my to-make list :)

Tiny amigu­ru­mi using corks! My favourite is the Christ­mas tree. The elves are also ridicu­lous­ly cute. Vis­it Moji-Moji Design to see all of them! :D

I like the con­trast of the lace pat­tern and the dense dc stitch­es. From Moo­gly.

Need a nice gift top­per or table dec­o­ra­tions? These chrysan­the­mum are gor­geous and pret­ty easy to make. From Oh Hap­py Day.

Need a big­ger gift top­per? These are made from paper plates! Aren’t they amaz­ing? Can also dou­ble as wall-hang­ing! From Muslin & Mer­lot.

I think this is a bril­liant­ly sim­ple way to show off nice stones and agates, I would just be a slight bit ner­vous about the stones falling off the bail, as they’re just held by glue… But I’ve actu­al­ly done the same with a small piece of amber, and it’s nev­er fall­en off, so I guess as long as one is using the right glue, this makes a nice quick gift! From Fall for DIY.

Can’t go wrong with a sim­ple, cozy hat in neu­tral colours that will go with every­thing :) From Mama in a Stitch.

Can’t wait to show you all the things I’ve been mak­ing — in a few weeks, after I’ve giv­en the gifts away :) Hap­py hol­i­day craft­ing! :D
