Well, the hustle and bustle of the holidays is almost over. Did you get everything done for your friends and family that you wanted? For the first time, I think I actually did!

So, what do you do now? How many of you feel like you have all the time in the world now that your Holiday projects are over? I do. Now I don't know what I should start working on first!

I have a sweater that I have been wanting to make for myself forever. Maybe I'll start on that? Here it is...

Of course, my son has requested a few things but I think his wish list is never ending! Leave me a comment and let me know what you are going to do with all your free time now that your Holiday crafting is over for this year!

Quick & Easy Crochet Christmas Gifts

It's getting crunch time for us crafters! Some of us are probably just stitching away trying to get everything that we done for Christmas gifts (I know I am!) If you still need some last minute quick items to make, here are a few of my favorites.

Dishcloths are always quick and easy, and who doesn't need more dishcloths!

These are just a few that I've made but you can use the pattern for just about any square pattern for a dishcloth. I like to use cotton yarn when making my dishcloths.

If you need a quick gift for a child, here are a few smaller amigurumi items.

This is one of my favorites!
I have lost count on how many of these I have made :) Here is the pattern for my favorite crochet kitty.

This is another easy one that I made for my son.

These are really simple. I am currently making 22 of them for my son's friends in his classroom!
Here is the pattern for the little teddy bear. There are 2 different sizes on the site. I made the bigger one.

My main go-to quick Christmas gift is an ornament. Who wouldn't like a handmade ornament! Here are some of my favorites.

These are just a few of my go-to quick patterns when I need a quick gift. Whether it be for Christmas or anything else! If you have any questions on any of these patterns please don't hesitate to ask! Just email me at lindsaymayo@gmail.com or leave a comment below.
