Do you need ideas for a homemade gift for a toddler? You've just found a bunch of them! From handmade accessories to toys, here are 10+ easy and cute sewing projects with beginner patterns you'll love to sew. Toddlers will love anything associated with exploration, like a fabric marble maze or a buckle toy, matching games, preferably colorful. Toddler accessories and clothing, be it a hat, a scarf or pajama pants, need to be easy to use, so they can put them on by themselves. I took all that into account when compiling this collection of patterns and how-tos. Oh, and these patterns are all beginner friendly! Try out some of them (or all!) and make the best diy presents for your toddler.
