homemade gift for 1 year old boy?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Any ideas? I don't knit, but I do sew. I've got a girl and have really only been making very girly items. Any ideas for a good homemade gift for a 1 year old??

Thanks!

Simple draw-string bags (for keeping dinky cars, blocks, etc.)?

Playdough?

A T-shirt with his name sewn on?

What about a really simple stuffed animal, crayon roll, or soft shoes? If they cloth diaper, maybe a few embellished prefolds?

Set of fabric blocks included some wedges to, eventually, roll cars up and down.

Fabric balls.

For a one year old, you can add a nice crinkle-effect to things by stuffing them with cut up plastic grocery sacks (ask your neighbors if you don't have any yourself).

"Taggies" pillow?

It's just folded over ribbon arund the edges of a pillow. When I made one for DD I put jingle bells inside a sewn fabric pouch inside the pillow.

Most of us buy blanks (Dharma Trading is a good source. Look for the Habotai silk scarves) and dye them ourselves. They're about $3 each, and you can use lots of things to dye them. Check out the playsilk thread here on the Toys and Dolls board.

Super simple and well loved by every toddler who has seen them:
