As Alicia writes on her Create! blog, “Baseball Season can only mean one thing: Crochet Beer Cozies!” Enjoy her Beer Cozies Pattern, which she entered in Craftzine’s Stitch N’ Pitch contest (check out the other winning projects with corresponding tutorials!– Wow!). Just as an aside, wouldn’t this be a nice baby bottle cozy for the youngest sports fans on your list?
spacer Canvas Camping Chair
Randy’s Canvas Camping Chair Tutorial via Instructables is great for parents (or grandparents) on the sidelines
spacer Perfectly Portable Cushions
Autum’s Perfectly Portable Cushion Tutorial is great for anyone who attends long games on hard stadium or auditorium seats. Make the game just a little cushier!

Don’t miss these related tutorials from the SMS archives: Gifts for Warmth (for the cold, cold stadium) and Season Pass Holders.

    That whistle is too cool!

    I think I’m going to have to give those cushions a try

  216. Great stuff for the sports fans. I really love Heather Bailey’s Stacker pattern. So Cute!

  217. Kelli says:

    I love those portable cushions. They’ve been on my To-Do list since the first time they were mentioned. If only the list was getting shorter instead of longer….Oh well!

  218. Bonnie says:

    Those cozies are adorable – too bad I’m not skilled with yarn (yet!). I also love anything with peanut butter and chocolate! I always make peanut butter balls at Christmas time! This year I am going to try a homemade turtle and cashew caramel cluster – not sure if I will try majing the caramel from scratch though… not enough time to sew and cook EVERYTHING from scratch!

  219. Beth says:

    Ah, something to get us through until softball season! I wonder how buckeyes pair with beer?

  220. Lisa says:

    Apron’s I love one of these days I’m going to make one that I keep for me.. The Happy stacker would make a great gift for the two new babies (one will be here any day now)


  221. Kerri says:

    The cushions look great. I’m going to have to add them to my to do list.

  222. missknitta says:

    The happy stacker is adorable!

    Good ideas! My sports-lovin’ husband is going to enjoy some of those!

  224. Kim says:

    I love those portable cushions, totally going to make those asap. I’ve been wanting to get some. And I am in love with Heather Bailey! Pick me PLEASE!

  225. CodeCrafter says:

    Love the portable cushions!

  226. Julia in MI says:

    I like the portable seat cushions. And those Buckeyes look delicious. I love Heather Bailey and would enjoy those patterns.

  227. Alice S says:

    Buckeyes are my families FAVORITE Christmas treat. I would love to win a Heather Bailey pattern. Her Freshcut line is my all time favorite.

  228. Jodie says:

    So cute!

  229. Julia says:

    Oh, I love Heather…I mean, I love her designs ,o)…I’d be more than thrilled if you’d chose me as a winner for one of her patterns…those ‘buckeyes’ look like chestnuts…the perfect autumn candy.
    Thanks for broadening my horizon!
    Cheers, Julia

  230. Lauranie says:

    I like the baseball cozy. I know I’m making them for guys, but they are “too cute”!

  231. Teresa says:

    I find guys so hard to sew for. Thanks for the great ideas!

  232. Angela N says:

    That is a super cute apron. I’m going to think lucky!

  236. Christine Bolin says:

    I love the Christmas ornament of Kurt Griswold at the Marraige of Metal site. I might have to buy one for this year’s tree. No fair bringing out the buckeye recipe this early. It’s hard not to make some early. Wonderful, wonderful ideas this year. And last year’s, too.

  240. Sunny says:

    Oh, I am thinking I have to buy a whistle!

  241. Marguerite says:

    Canvas chair is excellent — and looks more cushiony and more durable than most of what I’ve seen in stores. Great idea!

  242. Michelle says:

    ooo that stacker is so adorable!

  243. DawnMcD says:

    very nice selection, I love the stacking pillows.

  252. karissa says:

    ooooo, I want to try those patterns!

  253. alisha says:

    I love the happy stacker! And Buckeye candies.

  254. Kristen says:

    We need some cushions around here! And we’d love to make a nice, fabric Happy Stacker. What baby wouldn’t be happy with that?

  255. Robyn says:

    Those stackers are so cute! I love the ribbons on them… I’m always looking for more toys to put ribbons on ’cause my baby just loves to feel them!

  256. Tricia says:

    How cute is that apron! I would love the pattern to make for my brother-in-law’s new girlfriend!

  259. Penny says:

    I have been lusting after the Happy stacker pattern for a while now. What a fantstic idea and just in time for Christmas crafting for the little ones.

  260. Lorene says:

    Great items! I love the canvas camping chair and the buckeyes look yummy!

  267. Johanna I. says:

    Oooo, I love Heather’s patterns…and fabrics, for that matter. With two new babies in the family, the ring stacker pattern would come in particularly handy. Thanks for the chance to win!

  268. Ashley says:

    Love those portable cushions! I made a couple a few months ago and I’m pleased to say that they turn out perfectly every time!

  269. buebau says:

    The portable cushions are perfect. I love them.
    I must try to make those buckeyes…

  272. Marie says:

    beer cozies. Well, that takes care of my BIL’s present (at least part of it)

  273. Kelly G. says:

    Another idea if your sports lover is a coach… a custom clip board. I had our local engraving shop do one with my husband’s favorite quote on it, but you could decoupage one or paint or any number of things.

  274. Sarah AJ says:

    Great stuff once again! The canvas chair is brilliant.

  275. Jessica says:

    Those patterns look so yummy!

  290. britt says:

    Hmm… I wonder what I am going to do for the inlaws, these all seem like good ideas but now I have to decide!

  291. Marsha says:

    A cushion! Genius for my hard-to-buy-for and somewhat inscrutable brother-in-law. I mean, I love the guy but, seriously, he’s the worst to try to surprise or delight.

    Now, if I can just get my hands on some Penn State fabric, a stadium cushion could be his. Awesome.

  292. Toni says:

    I love the Happy Stacker. How cute is that?? Much better than the plastic!

  295. Regina says:

    Go Buckeyes!!
    That canvas camping chair is awesome, too!!!

  296. Ellen B says:

    I grew up on “buckeyes”…Thanks for the recipe!
