Hodge’s Favorite Things: Free Thanksgiving Crochet Cuteness

Excited HodgeHodge is very excited for Thanksgiving. I mean, look at him. He can’t sit still, he’s so excited.

He says he’s jumping for joy because there’s just so much to look forward to. The food. The football. The friends and family. The food. And all the Thanksgiving decorations and toys he plans to crochet to make the season as festive as can be.

This year, Hodge has helped me gather some of his very favorite free Thanksgiving crochet patterns to share with you. He says you should make them all and proudly display them on your mantel for everyone to see. Or if you will be traveling this Thanksgiving, any one of these would make a very unique gift for the host and a sure conversation starter.

You Don’t Have to Be a Kid to Enjoy a Good Diorama

As you can probably tell from my squirrelly banner here, I’m a fan of dioramas. As a kid, I had to make them for class, but I remember making them for fun too. I’m glad I still haven’t outgrown them. One of my favorite diorama websites is Cuddles and Rage. The small-scale scenes by creators Liz and Jimmy feature the evil yet cute adventures of food (and sometimes animals). They recently found out that their diorama of a fox in a pumpkin patch is a finalist in the DeviantArt diorama contest. Way to go!
