Adult Onesie - Knitting Pattern on Craftsy

Inner-child adult knit onesie

Why let kids have all the fun? This adult union suit from Craftsy member TheWittyKnitter utilizes the function and comfort of a onesie in an adult-size pattern. Based on old-time long underwear, this knit sweater is the perfect playful gift for the lumberjack in your life, when paired with your favorite flannel and suspenders of course!

Mummy Baby Shower Cake - Craftsy Member Pattern

Baby wants his mummy cake

We couldn’t keep this cake from Craftsy member maramyjo under wraps. This witty cake decorating masterpiece is sure to make baby shower guests scream with delight. The piped “Damian Wants His Mummy” at the base of the cake is the ultimate punchline that’ll make your forget every bad “bun in the oven” pun you’ve ever heard.

Two Boyfriends Cardigan - Knitting Pattern www.craftsy.com

Two is better than one boyfriend cardigan

Juggling two men?! You sassy thing! You’ll have no trouble keeping them straight with this sweater from Craftsy member AllysonD. Knit this dual-color oversized boyfriend cardigan with each of their favorite colors and keep them both happy.

Funny Shark Slipper - Crochet Pattern on Craftsy

Foot eating shark crocheted slippers

Cue the Jaws theme music, there’s a foot-eating shark in the water. We love this fun slippers pattern from Craftsy member sval. For babies, kids and adults alike, crochet these shark slippers and take a bite out of cold feet.

Breaking Bad Cake

El tortuga birthday cake

Breaking Bad fans will appreciate this birthday cake made by Craftsy member Ideandyment in the Advanced Cake Sculpting: Bobbleheads class. The turtle-head cake pays homage to a Breaking Bad episode where a Mexican drug runner’s head is found mounted on a turtle. If that doesn’t say happy birthday, I don’t know what does.

Ducky Dynasty Beard and Hat Crochet Pattern

Call of the wild Duck Dynasty beard

As Craftsy member MeMorningGlory artfully put it, this pattern “would make Phil and Willie Robertson proud.” Or maybe you have baby in your life that would like to start growing a beard the same time they grow teeth. Either way, we’re crazy about this pattern that has a basic hat pattern that’s practical, plus a beard pattern that’s practically hilarious.

Unthinkable Aboard the Unsinkable Acrylic Painting

Cat and Rose: fine art aboard the Titanic

We love this funny take on the infamous Titanic painting scene. Craftsy member Emily Spengler played into her cats’ almost human personalities by creating this fun acrylic painting. Maybe this painting will inspire someone in Hollywood to make a cat-style Titanic film spin-off? Dare to dream.

Shiitake Happens - Craftsy Member Embroidery Pattern

Mouthful of mushrooms cross-stitch

Looking through the embroidery patterns, we came across so many witty cross-stitch messages, but this one from Craftsy member Tiny Modernist stood out. The “censored” embroidered message still gets its point across in a way that’s just too playful not to share.

Pet Bad Hair Day

Dog days ain’t over photo

Everyone has a bad hair day, including man’s best friend. This photo from Craftsy member Carrie Ann Grippo-Pike sums it up perfectly in its hashtag title: #PetLove.
