tiny stuffies are a really sweet gift... they can look like anything, they're completely adorable, they're tiny for tiny (and not so tiny) hands to love on, and they can be as easy or as hard as you like!
i know i (and julia and jane too) have made a pretty large assortment of tiny friends over the years... here's a little sampling to perhaps help jog some inspiration...
the above are some amigurumi i have made. amigurumi is japenese for little crocheted/knitted toy. after several years of not crocheting at all, i decided to reteach myself how to do it using free ravelry patterns. it worked! within a couple hours i had made a little octopus. honestly, if you just follow the pattern and a youtube tutorial or two, you can't go wrong... they're surprisingly easy, very fast, and incredibly cute!
these are super great projects for beginners or not! someone in your life will be sure to love your tiny creation!
