You’ve jingled those bells and decked the halls, but have you stitched any toys? Handmade gifts like the ones below are a treat to sew and to give, as they only take a few hours to whip-up and no recipient will be able to resist the adorable faces on these cuddly creatures! It’s been tricky to whittle our mascots down to the most festive six, but we’re confident you’ll love these.
Dashing through the snow
If you need a quick-and-easy gift to sew, you've come to the right place! Lovingly named by one of our readers, Percy the Penguin will make an adorable friend for a youngster – just remember to make the buttons kid-friendly, and you're good to go!
Roger the Reindeer might not be as well-known as his cousin Rudolf, but that doesn't mean he can't make your Christmas merry and bright! He's a lovely gift for a child or he can simply be used as a sweet festive decoration.
Sleigh bells ring
Hold your reindeer – because Louise Nichols' heirloom toys are about to become your favourite stitchy project! Made from just two pieces of fabric, coordinating ribbon, a bell and a bead, these reindeer are super simple to make!
'Tis the season
Create Cheryl Owens' cute cat as a companion for your little one. This sleepy kitty comes complete with a sleeping bag, plus you can add a personal touch by sewing her ruff and tutu in your loved one's favourite colour.
All I want for Christmas
If you're looking to give a sentimental gift this year, grab the tissues, because you've found it! Preserve your child's most-treasured garments by using the fabric to make this vintage-style memory bear which can be passed on to future generations.
Under the tree
Dave the Daschund is one of Sew magazine's best-loved toys, and it's not hard to see why! You can stitch this cool pup for a child or fill the inside with sand to turn him into a doorstop for friends and family – no matter who you give Dave to, they won't be able to resist his charming face!
